#SundayGunday: Stoeger P3000 Pump-Action Shotgun

by
posted on March 19, 2017

Traditional, reliable, a staple: They’re all words that could be used to describe the pump-action shotgun. The design, which first appeared in the field more than a century ago, remains brilliant in its simplicity and efficiency. Pump guns continue to have a place in the blinds of hunters and under the beds of homeowners across the nation, and for good reason. The pump-action is a catch-all, of sorts. A gun designed to take a kicking and keep on ticking. It was with that in mind that Stoeger Industries rolled out its new budget-friendly P3000, a low-price pump gun that delivers anything but low-end performance.
