While "weaned" on a borrowed hammer-"safetied" crack-barrel, my first upland gun purchase was a tang-safetied (and double-triggered) 20ga double that I shot for years. Initially tried adding a bigger-bored Model 37 for turkey and waterfowl but soon replaced it with a tang-safetied Model 500. Had other issues with the Model 37, but then going to the only tang-safetied pump I'm aware of little doubt also spoke to a desire to ease the transition when switching up guns: say when heading to the grouse woods after a morning with geese. Would think the fact that I'm still shooting my deer with a tang-safetied Model 77 purchased around that same time says much the same. In any event, a decade or so of shooting a SXS early and often apparently didn't do pecans for my safety transitions. Drat the bad luck.
