Gun Appreciation Thread - Page 139
I have a longish collection of proper firearms but once in a while I will indulge in some' "less than top drawer" purchases or trades. One of my UK pals that is in the Syndicate we shoot pheassy and partridge along with the odd woodcock (and once a beatter, but that is another story) has a dandy single shot, fold in half, 20 gauge, silenced shotgun he keeps above his french doors looking into his garden. In the morning there will be the odd squirrell or two just sitting on the slarge stump in his gargden eating the peanut hearts he laid out for them the night before............you chaps can work out the rest.....
Here are some later Victorian era pieces that have passed through my hands recently.
Plus some Spanish American War Colts. These were the infamous underpowered .38s that troops lost confidence in in the Philippines. They seemed to work OK for Teddy Roosevelt on San Jan Hill, however.
I've seen some of those weableys in use, 20 years ago. not very flashy but reliable
