Low prices on the H&R Snake Tamer start at Champion Firearms- the H&R Tamer is a survival shotgun that performs reliably in all weather conditions thanks to its simple break-open design. A rust resistant electroless nickel finish and a super-tough polycarbonate stock and forend further protect the gun from the elements. The diversity of the shotgun is truly amazing. A wide range of applications are commonly seen, from being a favorite among property owners looking for a handy shotgun to dispatch snakes, or as a common fixture on Alaskan fishing boats for captain's looking to quiet an 8 foot halibut before bringing it on board. While the short overall dimensions allow it to be easily deployed, the .410 shotshell is lethal to unwanted creatures and is still bearable to fire.
The H&R Tamer stows virtually anywhere, has a unique thumbhole stock that offers a firm hold, and stores an additional 4- rounds in a side compartment. While the short stock may make the gun impractical to shoulder fire, the 20" full choke barrel concentrates shot column density perfectly for maximum lethality with close range work. Since the action is a single shot break open design, the hammer must be cocked back mechanically each time to fire. The shorter barrel of the Tamer has a neutral balance and the transfer bar provides safe operation. It weighs in at six pounds and will chamber both 2.5" & 3" shells. Overall, the H&R Snake Tamer is an affordable, reliable and efficient gun capable of going virtually anywhere.
