Here’s the perfect over-under forgrouse, woodcock, and quail. The listing says that it’s a left-hand gun. If they mean the stock is cast for a left-handed shooter, you should be able to bend to fit a righy. Beretta 686-Orvis Uplander, O/U, 20/28 GA Double Barrel Shotgun: Both barrels are 28″ with screw in chokes single […]

Rain, it’s something Puck hates and it’s what we had today. So instead of hunting, we spent the day traveling, running some errands, and taking care of some business. I hope we can get out tomorrow. It’s supposed to rain in the AM, but then clear up a bit in the afternoon. BTW: Happy Halloween.

The side-by-side shotgun you see here is probably one of kind.

Pick and I made it out yesterday for a couple hours today. The weather was just about perfect for bird hunting: Sunny, temps in the upper 30s after a real hard frost during the night, and just a touch of wind. We hit two spots and found birds in both. In all, around 3 grouse […]

Beretta’s S-series O/U shotguns are some of the greatest doubles ever made – and some of them can be the great buys. Just look at the S2 pictured here to see what I mean. It’s a true sidelock with 28 1/2″ bbls, a high-straight-gripped stock with a 14 3/8″ LOP, double triggers and a weight […]

Of all the A.H. Fox Sterlingworth shotguns ever made, the model you see here is one of the hardest to find.  The Sterlingworth Skeet and Upland Game Gun was introduced in 1935. Skeet was new sport then, having been invented in 1920 by Charles Davis, a grouse hunter from Andover, MA. In 1926, William Harnden […]

The doubel barrel shotgun you see here is a head scratcher. While it sure looks like a Lefever and it’s made on a Lefever-pushlever-patent action, it was made by J.A. Prechtel. Who was J.A. Prechtel? I have no idea, and neither does anyone else. According to the inscription on the barrels, Prechtel was located in […]

South Dakota is dying…
