Morphy Auctions in Lancaster, PA, is having a firearms auction tomorrow, Saturday, July 19, 2014 @ 9:00 AMĀ Eastern. The sale has a lot of shotguns in it, including some nice doubles. Here are a couple that caught my eye.

NOTE: I tried talking to these guys about about a couple side by sides. Their knowledge of double-barrel shotguns is limited, so I would be careful with the descriptions — especially if you’re bidding blind.
