My first real HD firearm was a brand new $130 S&W branded riot pump from the mid 1970s. If memory serves they were made under contract in Japan. The dealer sold it to me along with 100rds of 50% defective 00 buck 'guard load' - whatever that means. I was so broke it was all I could afford at the time. Oh well I spent the that evening hand sorting 12ga rounds. The shotgun worked pretty well but I finally sold it off after buying a Mossberg 500 combo. That's since been replaced with a Beneli M1 Super 90 with both a 28" hunting barrel and a found on Fleabay for cheap 20' tactical barrel.
