Outdoor Skills – Hunting Q&A
I have a chance to buy a foreign-made semiauto shotgun (that is no longer imported) at a great price, but my gunsmith tells me to pass it up. He says that if something goes wrong, it has no warranty, and getting replacement parts will be impossible. He wants me to buy an American-made gun. I think it's sour grapes on his part. Who's right?
He is. There are a lot of very good imported shotguns, and there are a lot of dogs. The fact that this one is going for so little money is a pretty sure warning sign that someone wants to dump it. If you buy the thing, you will wish you had listened to your gunsmith-and to me.
