Well, look at it this way - Phil's buddy's coach gun probably shoots sub-moa - for one pellet. All the other pellets are somewhere within  +/- 10,000 MOA

Quality stuff we have here! Reminded me of a blueberry farm near a job site I was working on.  At random times (5 mins or so) it would fire off birdshot shells into the air to scare the birds.  (The bird can decrease the blue berry crop by up to 45% or so I'm told).  I was a few hundred yards off, but if the wind was right I could catch a couple of bird shot.  The good kind of catch as in my hand not in the rear end:  a light peppering.
The person who has nothing for which his is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Yikes! As soft as blue berries are, if they firing shot skyward, I bet there were some awfully crunchy seeds in some those berries.

I guess they figured crunchy blue berries were better that blue berries that had been run through a bird. :)

I wonder why Stoeger went with non-exposed hammers? (I am an old timey coach gunner....)

And a hell of a holster maker judging by your website and the comments of MB, who can never pronounce your last name right  ;D

I keep looking at coach guns.  Is there any reason to go for one with screw in chokes?

Haz,

Sure! Chokes are great! Be able to tailor the shotgun for your load/mission requirements.

Haz,

Spend it now...or spend it testing ammo to find out what works (the chokes are cheaper than ammo these days!).

Of course you can do what I do (look up "cheap bastard" in the dictionary, my photo is there!), get the non-choke gun, find a load that is available locally (or in stock in your safe) and learn it WELL at every range you might shoot it. You might find that after XXX many yards the shot drops off, or that up close the shot column is too tight/loose etc....learn the gun. (and its FUN to shoot!).
