    With a mechanical trigger the second barrel goes boom even when number 1 does not. That is nice in a hunting situation.

    Yeah, they are clearly advantageous in hunting. In target shooting, I believe there can be made an argument that inertial triggers just might fail to move to the second shot if the internal works are dirty before the simpler mechanical triggers....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    Mechanical triggers are better IMO because you can use lighter loads and the secound shot will go off without any trouble everytime, barring ammo problems.
    Happy shooting!!!

    Speaking of dirty triggers, I did see 2 682's this year that had been fired for a significant period of time for only singles games that failed to fire the second barrel during doubles. Once they were serviced the boom, boom was back.

    It is simpler to snap both hammers with a gun that has mechanical triggers before taking the gun apart and putting it in a case. Also, when I use my trigger testing scale, it is simpler when the gun has mechanical triggers.
