    What were your shooting experiences like shooting the Kolar Ts? Did you like or dislike it?

    Well built gun, but if you're use to shooting a light gun, it will take some getting use to. Its easy on the recoil too.

    I bought one with the .750 bore and found it to be well balance, very responsive, and a soft shooter. Could not ask for more in a quality, American made shotgun.

    All Kolars are a heavier gun, so if the weight doesn't bother you then that won't matter but what will matter is Kolars have a less than appealing resale value. Seems like it takes for ever to sale them even after you lower the price to giving it away.

    Since 1978 I have shot two single barrel shotguns. I shot a stock Perazzi TM1 with a release trigger til the summer of 2007. Purchased a Kolar T/S .740 bore and I enjoy shooting it very much. Excellent release trigger as well.
    I guess I should weigh it. Kolar does make a good gun.
    Also made in the USA.

    The biggest drawback is that it's real hard to shoot doubles with it! Seriously, if it fits you well, it's a dream to shoot. I tried one and ran 'em with it, but chose a max t/a because I do want to shoot doubles. Weight never bothered me and neither did the recoil. Just a lovely gun. Use the resale issue to your advantage and wait for someone to sell you a used one in good condition. There have been a few here recently. As I said, if it fits you, you should do well with it.

    I have always wanted to ask the same question, thx for the post. ms-yuan makes a good point, use the resale value to your advantage
