One of the local pawn shops has a Chinese made clone of an Ithaca model 37.

Marked at a quite reasonable price, but just enough to keep me from checking the couch.

I admit I've wanted an Ithaca for a while.

I want one in the same way as I've wanted a Browning Auto-5.

Just slightly less than the current owner wants to sell it.

My problem with getting more shotguns is I've got two already.  I don't use them for anything.

I have the 870 because I think every gun owner should have a pump or auto shotgun at minimum.

The Model 12 Heavy Duck came to me via Willard for fixing it.  He had the same look on his face when I figured out the problem in a couple minutes that I do when my buddy JT, calmly, explains a simple fix to a computer problem to me.

The model 12 is iconic and interesting!  It's a neat gun to take apart and Grok in fullness.

The Ithaca has the same appeal.  Assuming the Chinese didn't change all but how it looks.

  1. I've got several shotguns and rarely use any of them... Remington 870 for similar reasons to yours... Mine has mag extension, Choate folder, poly pump grip, etc. Savage 67E in case I was ever to want to hunt birds. It is a very respectable looking pump gun. A Fox Sterlingworth SxS that belonged to my great grandfather and a 16 ga single shot that belonged to my Grandma. And a Saiga 12... just because it is a "lead delivery system" and way too much fun. Modified for 922R compliance with US parts. 10 round box magazines and an AK style action. It would get a lot more range time but it is picky on ammo it likes. And the stuff it likes tends to be expensive. Alas.
