I've been itching for a shotgun as i don't really have one that's functional. I have an old ithaca i am slowly restoring, but even then its more for sentimental reasons and not for home defense. Well i remember our genius vice president mentioning i should buy a shotgun. Well he is the vice president afterall, and the advice seemed pretty sound. So last week i plunked down some money with Aim surplus and ordered me up one. It was on impulse i admit as i've been itching for a new toy for some time. It isn't much; just some clunky ol' vepr-12, you know your typical hunting gun.

One of the best parts of this story is after i placed my order the importer dropped the price 200 bucks which was applied to my order. Made the impulse not seem so bad.
Also i found the owner's manual to be quite the pleasure to read as it seems they used google translate in it's creation.

Now i just need to do some homework to find the cheapest/easiest parts to get for it to keep it 922r compliant when i break the weld on that folding stock.

Nice! Congrats on the vepr. Been considering one myself since the price is right. It practically begs to be SBSed.

Awesome!

The gun made me drool, and the manual made my brain itchy.

Crazy Uncle Joe recommended a double-barrel, but I applaud your choice. I'm sure he approves.


Real deep down.

If you guys liked page 4 of the manual. you will love page 5. As i reflect upon the manual it's almost as if they are intentionally doing this as the rest of the manual's language, while a bit stiff, isn't nearly as humorous.

My wife and kids and I had a good laugh reading through my Vepr manual. :D
last night i had to pause whatever i was watching because i was rolling. I showed it to a few co-workers and they got a good laugh too.
