    What type of shotgun is it and what's stamped on it? 1973-1975 is back in the days when I was a teen getting into guns (before getting back out) and Berettas were considered pretty good. Not the rare kind of thing Rattler would drool over (if it had rifling, of course) but definitely a step up from what most people used. For rabbits, hopefully it's a 12 gauge, full choke pump or semi-auto.

    I'm all about Benelli.
    Mossberg 500's are good as well as Remy 870 cause they're cheap and there's alotta barrels out there for em so you can configure em for your style of shooting easily.
    But I'm all about Benelli.

    The only thing stamped on it was, Beretta AL2 12 guage mod. That's why we're looking, cause the rest of the WWW is not turning much up.

    Is it a pump, semi auto, or what? I'm guessing mod means modified choke. I've never hunted rabbits, but I think people usually use a full choke, to get a tighter shot pattern. A modified choke is good for things like birds. My late grandfather's rabbit gun is a long barrelled, full choke 12 gauge pump action. I don't think he ever went duck hunting, but it would be good gun for that too.

    A .22 is great for rabbits when the bunnies are the highest feature on the landscape, but a shotgun is a better choice if you'll be using dogs or flushing them out underfoot. When I was in high school, a friend told me we could hunt rabbits with a bow if we walked a circle around them, closing in as we walked around. We spent a few hours walking around in the nearest soybean field with his hunting bow but never saw any rabbits and got bored and quit.

    mainly we hunt rabbits(cottontails and snowshoes) on the river bottom, knee high grass/wheat/corn, brush piles, irrigation ditches full of cattails, chest high sagebrush...........few rabbits out on the short grass prairie, mainly jacks and best way to hunt them is via spotlight at night while they are out in the open feeding.

    a 22 works just fine in high grass and such if yah know their habits..........unless your close they tend to stay put, if you can see them you can hit them with a .22. after a bit of hunting them you tend to know where they are likely to be sitting, watching for preditors......you quit looking for rabbits and are instead looking for spots that they are likely to be sitting. i dont know anyone up here who uses dogs, few use shotguns unless they happen to jump one while bird hunting.
