Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default $25,000 Ithaca Trench Gun

I've never owned one of these but I'll venture to say it's probably over-priced by about $24,000. It's even missing the original buttplate:

Unless it can be traced and documented to having been in action, which does not look like.

It would have to have proven to be Audie Murphy's shotgun, or maybe George Patton's.

Then maybe? Hell I say around $3,000 is the most I would even think about forking over.

I have the Remington M11 my great Uncle carried in Korea. It has the flaming bomb on the barrel, and the hunting scenes engraved on the receiver. The Army first issued them in WW2, so it could have seen action then, too.

$25k for a shotgun? Maybe if it says, "Perazzi" on the barrel somewhere.

I recall my old man saying a number of Marine grunts he served with in the Pacific were issued with the military Ithaca 12 gauges. Apparently they were effective in dealing with Mr Moto at close ranges in the jungle, especially during ambushes.

I had one in Nam for a few weeks and turned it in for a M-16. It was "Shotgun Kelly's" and he had just left our platoon for the LRRPs and I grabbed it.
Kelly grew up in Africa with his dad who was a hunting guide he knew his way around the bush. Now he is some Fed. Marshall or something?
I saw him at the reunion a few years back and told him I ditched his shotgun. Holy sheet I thought he was going to cave my head in.
Damn like calm down dude.

Default Lot 3543: Ithaca Model 37 Trench Shotgun Rock Island Auction.

This is an extremely rare WWII military trench shotgun that was manufactured by the Ithaca Gun Company for the US Army, circa 1943/44. This is probably the rarest of the WWII US Army trench shotguns and probably only second to the rarest of all the trench shotguns, the WWI Remington Model 10 trench shotgun

Sold For $20,700.

https://www.rockislandauction.com/de...trench-shotgun

Rock Island is where the big boys buy their toys. $$$$
If I hit the lottery I am hanging out their. 44044 you come with me help me carry the loot.
Article says the WWII and Korean era not many were produced? Vietnam Ithaca started stamping them out again. Guess the price is not that far off but damn I would not pay it.

So another Ithaca riot gun sold for 20,700 at Rock Island. I would not pay that kind of loot even if I was Trump rich.
