I used shotguns for the first time this weekend. 20 gauge semi-auto, 12 gauge, 12 gauge pump (I might be butchering the descriptions). Loved the 20, which I was told was a Beretta, circa 1970s

I just ordered some caps, balls, patches and powder - decided to dust-off the repro Remington 1858 New Model Army for some fun black powder shooting before summer ends.

I took the G1935 FN-HP to the range yesterday lunchtime for their half-price Wednesday deal. It outshoots me and is a pure joy to shoot.

That's a really nice piece, Justin.

I'm really thinking about getting one of these OU shotgun pistols made. Portier's guns in the movie Buck and the Preacher.

That's something pretty unique! I sometimes think about doing the whole Mad Max SBS sawed-off side-by-side shotgun thing. If I still lived in the bush I probably would do it and justify it as my snake gun.

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 can't recall the name - they were selling crazy cheap on Shoebuy a couple years ago. If you really want to know, PM me a reminder and I'll look up the details.

I also picked this up: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

A 1942 Mosin Nagant 91/30. I'll be taking them both to the range this Saturday.
