    legal length?

    What is the legal length of a DB shotgun in Louisiana? I remember seeing one probably 30 yrs ago at Lafayette shooters and I think it was either 18 or 20 inches. And I'm assuming the legal length would be the same for pump?

    18 inches minimum. Most security barrel shotguns start at 18.5 inches to be sure.
    The new Ďnot a gunsí or Shockwave, Tac models, etc have a minimum length end to end so they allow for a shorter barrel (14 in iirc)

    Don’t let a woman cut it. The way we teach them to measure it will come up a few inches short.

    Those who live by the sword, get shot by those who don't.

    They are here and there. They’re called the Joe Biden special.

    Seriously, I have a couple of the Stoeger coach guns and they’re about the best bang for the buck. The 20 ga is really sweet if you wanna shoot a lot. The 12 has a predictable irritating recoil after a couple boxes. Both have served me well.
