Had a conversation with a guy today about the old long barreled goose guns & long toms of years past, told him I had a few but to be honest I didnt think they were all that great & didnt actually shoot any better than the average shot gun, told him I think the guns we have now days shoot far better.

I had an old marlin bolt action & a old 10 ga, the Marlin was ok but not the gun that legends are made of, the 10 ga was probably the most useless shot gun Ive ever shot, a kid with a hand full of gravle could throw a better patteren.

So whats your experience with them ,were they all that great or is it just nostalgia ?
When I was just a baby, my mama told me son, always be a good boy, dont ever play with guns.
