New GOOSE gun!!!

A Marlin Goose Gun to be precise. I have wanted one for some time. I may even take it out and shoot some Canadians this fall. I took a photo of it by the door to give you some sort of idea on how cartoonishly long this thing is. It measures 57" from butt to muzzle....

It is a crappy photo, but you will get over it. Those guns aren't lookers anyway. And since I got it out of layaway today, a new one had to go in to replace it. I have always wanted a 10 gauge and I have always wanted a side by side. This is a Spanish "Mercury G-1032" which means 10ga and 32" barrels. Both barrels are full choke. I am betting that the G may stand for "goose". This one should be another fun one to play with...

Michigan's early goose season starts in September. I am already excited!

    I wonder how the Canadians feel about this.?

    Hopefully you meant that you are going to take it out and shoot some Canada's..............:devil:

    I have always had a hankering to have a Marlin goose gun in the cabinet......no particular reason, but it is something that just appeals to me.

    Joe Biden's choice for home defense and no recoil I bet. Good hunting. Poor ducks! :punch: Later,

    Recoil is how you know primer ignition is complete.

    Ay? The border is just an hour away from here. Last I knew, there was only one Canada. We call those geese Canadians!

    I like them both! Good for duck and goose hunting. That double has double triggers so watch out the 'birdie' finger doesn't wander around and find that rear trigger when you're shooting. A double from a 10 ga. double could make you say stuff! :rotflmao:

    Think of all the money you'll save on shells.

    You should be able to just poke them out of the sky with the muzzle! :tooth:

    The bird is a Canada Goose....
    A Canadian Goose is something you get when you bend over in Montreal...

    That being said...I had a 3 1/2"10 gauge Spanish Double (Zabala) like that for many years....hard on the shoulder, but deadly on waterfowl...Nothing a P.A.S.T. pad won't fix...

    I had both barrels of a 10 ga go off once and that was enough.

    We used to have a member here that was dumb enough to do that kind of stuff. You probably would have got along with him pretty well.

    Very cool selections, Jerm. The goose gun is definitely a great conversation piece as well as an assuredly capable waterfowl gun. I've never used a 10GA afield, but it seem like another cool niche gun to own in a double-barrel rig.

    Just put a bayonet on it and you remove the need to ever pull the trigger!

    I was stuck in bed with a bad back all last week. Now I am at that place again. Sigh. And no, I haven't heard crap from Colt either.

    I keep trying to get my cousin to get one of these for the buck in his backyard in the middle of a Minneapolis suburb, he is afraid it will stumble into the neighbors yard.

    Very cool.....always wanted one of those....no idea why,,,,,,,,,just a damn that things weird....I want....same with the SxS.......but if I found a SxS in 10 Ga..........Ii would cost me a Tax Stamp..............Ken

    My honest to goodness strategy for finding a Marlin Goose Gun at the LGS's? Scan the used rack. If one barrel sticks up waaaaaaaay above the rest, it is most likely a Goose Gun. There are lots of old shotguns out there with 36" barrels, but that bolt action makes them really freaking long. They stick out like a sore thumb.

    My only experience with 10 ga was rather painful :tooth:

    I have 2. Ithaca Roadblocker- Not bad, very cool. H&R Single Shot sawed off to 18"- Awful. Painful. Uncool.

    BTW, one of those Bolt Action Marlin 12Ga shotguns was the first gun I ever fired at the age of 7. I want to get one again. Nice score.

    My shoulder started aching when I read that. Single shot, 18" barrel, 10 gauge? Do your ears start bleeding when you shoot it?
