I have a 12 ga. I can't even trade it for other ammo. What do I do with it?

Put it up for sale on the board and see if anyone bites. Good luck! OR you could just buy a .20 shotty to go with it:)

haha yea, it only cost me $15 at walmart. I asked the guy at gun exchange if I could exchange the ammo. He said no (something about liability).

Oh well, I'll just leave it at the gun range and hope someone takes it.

or if you're in a good mood you can send the ammo to me. :D

I can't believe the bad advice you're getting here.

You need a 20 gauge shotgun to shoot it with! Sheesh!

Give me the specs on your 20ga shells. How many boxes do you have?

Haha crap, I was at gun exchange and there was this old skool sears & roebuck shotgun. I was tempted to buy it... $90!

It's Federal brand, 20 ga, 2.5 dram eq, 7/8 oz, 7.5 shot. 100 round value pack.

I got it for $15 at the new walmart in fremont. I'm looking for 22lr ammo, cause I just got a ruger mk3!

Rule .308

No kidding, that was the first thing I did when I accidentally bought up a few boxes of 20 ga. I ran out and bought an 870Y "for the kids". Funny thing is I thought the recoil difference between the 12 and the 20 wasn't enough to worry about.

Buy an H&R NEF single shot 20 gauge for about $100 or so. Tons of fun, and good for upland game.

I have an old (Circa 1925) single-shot, break-action, Iver Johnson 20ga Champion Excel that I've been fixin' up and shooting for the past year. I love it! I think the street value is somewhere around $85.

For more old shotguns and collectables, head on over to:
