My wife who is 5 foot nothing tall. And weights a few pounds under 100. Loves her 20 ga, 20", coach gun. And the obsofreak'nlutely "handiest" upland field gun I ever had was a 20" 12 ga coach gun. Both with hammers.

Can't begin to recollect how many hundreds of rabbits, dove, and quail were bagged with it. Carried with hammers back and "broke open". Only took a second to close and mount in one smooth movement. And the short tubes allowed it to be carried one handed, by the pistol grip "broke open" and not drag the barrels in the dirt.

Double triggers allows you to switch hassel free from open first going away shots. And tight first for incomers.

BTW, both were/are Rossi made in Brazil. Mine was choked IC/Mod. Hers is Mod/Full. Both have accounted for solid 40 yd takedowns of dove many times. I upgraded to a Beretta O/U 26" 12 ga. My wife gave me as a gift. And since my cousin just had to have my coach. I sold it to him for the same $75 I paid for it. A month later it was stolen during a burglary.
