    I remember seeing one once... kinda a strange concept unless it's like a 410, 28 or maybe even a 20.

    pump action shotguns are banned in australia and the UK (of course)

    i think John Howard (the PM) has been watching too many movies where pump actions were used...

    Pump action rifles are not banned and neither are the norinco copy of that lever action shotgun arnie uses.
     
  12. australia. what's teh best calibre for pump action rifles?

    I'm pretty sure you can get most types of shotguns in the UK, if they have the three shot plug:greddy:

    Just dont use paper shells with a lever action shotgun and you'll be ok. Its in this months american rifleman.

    I dont' see how the load (as in what's exiting the front-side of the weapon) would make a difference in how the action likes it... It's all contained in the shell until you fire it and then it's an empy shell either way. The no-paper part sounds about right though.
