When you run across a good deal on a shotgun, never pass it up. Even the ugliest box of neglected metal can become the finest example of old school cool.

This little 20 was picked up for a cool hundred bucks. A few dollars on parts and supplies, a bribe of USDA Prime steaks to the Cerakote applicator, and enough time and patience, and poof... You have a new favorite go-to gun in the safe.

Sure, it'll never be worth enough money to justify the work you put into it... but you'll have something made with your own two hands to pass down later in life. Something that will be treasured long after you're gone.
