H&R Tamer 20 Gauge Shotgun: Lightweight Survival Option




What do you think about this video?

mark3smle: Well, Grandpa Terril is in the hospital recovering from knee surgery. He is featured in several videos and went and bashed his knee into a cypress knee in the woods a year back. He wants out of the hospital now but I am sure its just to keep the deer out of his garden.

mark3smle: I wish more of my videos were like this one but I will take what I can get.

James Gaul: Where are your glasses, to protect your eyes?!

Oldcoinsandstuff1: Thanks for replying, I'll continue to check into this but I did call Harrington and Richardson and they said they don't recommend shooting slugs in modified, full, ex full, or improved cyl. My gun is modified and I really don't want to chop it because it's a like new 1970s jr model. 

cronos222: I'm not sure if you know about it or if someone has mentioned it but ATI makes an AR type tactical stock & rubber recoil pad for this gun and it made mine ALOT more fun to shoot .

Oldcoinsandstuff1: What choke does that gun have?? I destroyed a nef 12 ga that had a modified choke by shooting slugs out of it

Adam Thacker: All you idiots commenting on how wussy he is and how tough you are have never shot this type of gun and don't know how physics work. The gauge is only part of the equation. A 5.5 lb 20 gauge with will kick much harder than your 7+ lb 12 gauge. Now add to that no recoil pad and shooting slugs and it's worse. If you kids are so tough go get a cheap Rossi 20 gauge and report back after 1 box of slugs.

AndyAbez: gun is to low on the shoulder. Bring the gun to the cheek and shoulder behind not the cheek to the gun

james cottrell: You can always get a .410 insert. Then have the option of 20 or .410.

UltraBeastGaming: 20 gauge is my fave gun over all 

Blake Hobson: You kitty it's a 20 I'm 13. And shoot a 12

tazhawn jones: Next time hold it tighter and lean into the shot 

Joe Proffitt: Cheap fun gun

mark3smle: Thanks James!

mark3smle: Yeah, it is actually better with both slugs and shot offhand because the recoil goes throughout the body rather just right into the shoulder form the bench. The gun works but its light :)

Hobgoblin4350: It's a light weight gun with a heavy charge, lots of recoil.

mark3smle: ill keep that in mind

mark3smle: Yeah. Never thought I could hit anything at 100 yards. The spot on my forehead is infected now. Shoulder is fine. Its not bad standing up.

787theninja: Thanks, very informative.

mark3smle: I would have gone with the 410 because you can carry more rounds. On the other hand, you do have less range and less shot or slug to throw at what you are shooting at.

BOHEMIANHUNTINGCLUB: Good looking Shotgun! Nice review! james

pattymcg101: great video and information

1911rocsoe: I enjoyed the video. If I may, some advise. Speak up and where are your glasses.

tcarp1616: Good stuff man tanks for showing the effects of the recoil. Like you said it's a survival rifle.

carl clay: Whats all them ouches about dont be a pus

mark3smle: I tried, Thanks Patty

phillip42184: Very cool gun! It looks like the rounds are falling out backwards. I would recommend putting the shell the opposite way around.

mark3smle: Easy to carry. A bit hard to handle sometimes. But hey. its a survival gun

mark3smle: H&R never made fancy stuff, but always very functional

mark3smle: Thanks greg. I put a bit of work into this one. I doubt I will shoot it much if at all. Its a great weapon but I am ready to moveo n.

mark3smle: you try doing it from a bench with a bad shoulder.

mark3smle: I tried that method but I had alot of trouble getting the rounds as there isnt alot of space to get it out once you put it in.

mark3smle: I thank you for watching and giving me an honest criticism. Some of my newer videos show this angle but now I am starting to use the two camera mode in which I put one on the gun and I, and another independently to show impact on the target . But having the primary camera behind me to not only demonstrate recoil but also range is a better idea. I will make sure to incorporate that from now on. I did a new shooting vid on the colt navy but now that you say that I want to remake it.

TheShermandale: Nice new gun, my friend.

james cottrell: You can put a insert in a 20 and shoot a 410. not the other way around. Better off with a 20.

mark3smle: the .410 has been called either a beginners gun or an experts gun. Its easy on recoil but also harder to hit the same targets with because of the small shot size. Having said that, I want one.

1957Shep: Had avery similar H&R when I was a kid. They are a decent little shotgun.

MommaTully: Nice review but I have to say I don't think I want to ever try this you said ouch too much

mark3smle: perhaps, but 12 gauge weighs more and in such a light gun like this the recoil wouldnt be too good. Its already pretty bad with the 20.

Slate Boggs: he just has a bad shoulder plus he was using a slug sooo....

mark3smle: its very high quality. H&R never made junk. They just make it simple and harder to break. Glad you enjoyed the review.

UltimateBrownEye: Good video but it needs a sling and you would be better off with a 12 gauge than a 20. They have alot more types of amno than 20 gauge

mark3smle: Most shotguns are harsh from the bench.

resculptit: Maybe a shot or two filmed as you did - at the shooter. But I'd like to see the shot from behind the shooter to get an idea of what it is like. The "kick" is a personal problem - not a gun problem. Every shotgun owner knows that. And as you said, you've never shot this gun before with slugs. But Please show the shot from behind looking toward the target. That will give us an idea of range and impact and 'back-dusting' after the target is hit or missed.

Harry Jack Graybill: My girlfriend recently bought the .410 model on 3 inch chamber she loves it. Home defence or hunting.

Brian Geiswite: You need to pull the gun into your shoulder tighter. It will help with the recoil and flinch. Not as much flinch but it won't hurt so you won't have a need to flinch

hempseedaddict: Ouch! Geez man, gave blood for that vid! Interesting about shotguns and distance though. How's yer face and your shoulder?

cltinseattle1: All them ouches have me thinking maybe I should get the .410 bore.

mark3smle: I did not know you can legally shorten it at all.

MyHollowpoint: Nice little shotgun and snake charmer.

Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
