Almost bought one for around $200 back in the mid 70's, till I found out it didn't have any rifling and was not in 45-70. Seemed like an awful lot for a single shot shotgun when I still had grandpa's double 12 Crescent for nuthin'. Wish I'd known then what I know now tho'.

Yeah, you could probably forage just as well with a .45-70, if you were a good shot! Went hunting once with a Texian who was packing a bolt-action .270.  It was sleeting and I took cover in some trees to build a fire, whilst he was still out looking for elk. I heard a shot and pretty soon he comes walking in with a sage grouse, minus the head! Bird had been perched on a limb, and he shot it with his .270! We roasted it for lunch!  ;D
Ride to the sound of the guns, but watch out for bushwhackers! Godspeed to all in harm's way in the defense of Freedom! God Bless America!
