I bought a Guide Gun back in 2004 or 05, was planning a motorcycle trip to AK via Canada and planned to camp and woods-loaf along the way, so wanted something that would be legal in Canada that I could carry on the bike and keep inside a tent for SD. Maybe a shorty 870 would have worked just as well. In any case, I never did take the trip, but still have the Guide Gun, and refer to it as my Canadian Assault Rifle!
