Default my score from the Chico Gun Show last week...JC higgins model 66

brought this JC Higgins Model 66 semi-auto 12ga home from the Chico Gun Show for $150 cash-and-carry. Wasn't planning on doing anything more than nursing my hangover and helping my friends navigate their first gun show (found some decent ammo and accessories deals and one of my friends even bought an old .45LC for $ cheapest one we saw was $750) but when I saw this I just couldn't pass it up. Needed a semi-auto 12ga for hunting and figured i'd be ok with abusing this one.

The bluing has some wear but nothing TOO bad. Wood furniture is in great shape and the action and trigger are smooth. Haven't taken her out yet since I've been busy with school, and no one has cheap 100 packs of 12ga right now...but I plan on checking out how well it patterns with that attached poly-choke as soon as i get a chance (goes from Slug to X-Full).

if anyone's ever had any experience with these, please let me know...good or bad...

Most civilization is based on cowardice. It's so easy to civilize by teaching cowardice. You water down the standards which would lead to bravery. You restrain the will. You regulate the appetites. You fence in the horizons. You make a law for every movement. You deny the existence of chaos. You teach even the children to breathe slowly. You tame.
