Sweet gun never the less

Awesome, Aaron.

That is a serious weapon. I'm glad you have it.

that is very sweet! I was thinking of getting one too, that would be my next shotgun, I'd need to find the extended magazine tube... seems like a must have item.

With the short 18.5" barrel it comes with the 2 shot extention, making it a 5 shot weapon. Stock. I have returned the magazine extention I originally purchased.

Didn't want to start a new thread and since "Land Rover" was in the title of this one I figured it would work; although, this is the EE board and well... you can post about anything anywhere.

I'm in Osaka Japan right now, I spent the day walking around when I saw a real deal Camel Trophy Disco (sorry for the small picture and it was taken from a not so great angle). I was on a pedestrian overpass when it stopped just under me for a light. I didn't know how long it would be there so instead of running down to street level and possibly miss it all together, instinct kicked in and I did the best I could with what I had. It was pretty sweet, all decked out with full badging and front bumper. No roof rack; understandably, I can't image it would do well in Japan with the extra height. A Disco is a huge vehicle for Japan, it's taller than most of the work vehicles and vans used for deliveries and construction.

Whew ... you fancy coastal guys and your shotguns

I don't suppose there's any interest in the magazine fed, bolt action 12 ga from "Coast-to-Coast" hardware that I've had since high school, is there?

Seriously ... Dad's old pump Win 1200 works great for the field, and the Mossy 500 fits just fine under the bed ... but I am getting the itch for a light 20 ga for sporting clays.

Damn, now I need another trip to the gun shop at lunchtime thanks alot!

Did real deal Camel Trophy Discos have tinted windows, sunroofs, and roof bars?

Rookie.

Seriously.

That was embarassing.

You were on an overpass, the sunroofs should have been a dead giveaway.

My bad! I was just so excited and it was so unexpected... I saw the badging, sandglo paint and the painted wheels. Spent more time looking at the rented mobile phone to get the camera function going... anyway, sorry for trying to sharing my enthusiasm. I must now go and commit Hara-kiri.

who knows, it was indeed a real deal CT disco, but the owner wanted to make it look more NAS, and removed the roof rack, plugged the holes on the roof, put the roof rail, and while at it, installed the sunroofs. then they had a newborn baby, and had to tint the windows... etc.

hehe, but David, what are the odds, really, of someone doing that to a real deal CT truck?

Probably the same type of person that would probably go through all that trouble and expense of stripping all the outer parts off of a disco and have it and the wheels painted Sandglow. Then sourcing all the badges and having them placed in the correct spots. It'd have been cheaper to tint the windows and add sunroofs than repaint an entire car, unless you're Jack... but then you'd have end up with some fucked up yellow anyways.

Aaron,

You've probably seen this vid before, but take another look:




Now that you own a Super 90, the video will have greater significance for you.

Here's another cool Benelli vid that I just found:




A related vid on YouTube was this punt gun:













I had seen many pics of punt guns before, but this is the first time I've seen a punt gun in action.

The punt gun was designed for the commercial waterfowler, sort of like the way the .577 and 600 Superheavies were designed for the commercial ivory hunter. These weapons are a thing of the past, but they remain forever interesting and impressive.

Oh, and check out this real deal Camel Trophy Disco:
