Goodbye, little girl…

Puck passed away today at 11:17am. I’m too shaken up right now to say much more. Yesterday was tough day for us, and so was last night and this morning. Puck seemed fine on Saturday, but by last evening she had lost most of the use of her hind legs. By this morning she was […]

It must be rare-Parker season. Here’s another one that’s hard to find. Parker Bros. made just 306 AH grade hammerless shotguns. Of those, I bet very few are late 20 gauges like this one.

I used to have a thing for 8 gauges. I wanted badly to find one, like a tick wants to find a deer. I even bought a pile of 8 gauge ammo in anticipation of owning one some day. If I were still interested in 8s, I would be salivating over this one. It looks […]

I love hammerguns, but while they have their pluses, one of their drawbacks is that most of them are real old – usually 125 years plus. A lot can happen to a gun in a century plus — poor cleaning, shoddy repairs, rough handling — and mistreatment can add up over the years and really […]

Even though he helped design one of the most successful hammerless shotguns of the 19th century, and his son partnered with William Metford to create one of the finest falling-block rifles of the 1870 and 1880s, you would be hard pressed to find […]
