Here’s a great deal on a fantastic over-under. This gun was made in the early 2000s by Battista Rizzini for Sig Arms. It’s built on a proven action, and the single trigger is as reliable as any out there. With a straight grip, 28″ barrels, and choke tubes, it’s one gun that do it all. […]

Our season begins…

Today is going to be a great day. This will Lexi first day in the fields, and I can’t say how excited I am to get her into some birds. Grouse and Woodock season opened in Maine on October 1. Normally, I would have been out last weekend. But a wedding and some previous got […]

I don’t pay a ton of attention to Spanish shotguns. Not that I have anything against them. Many Spanish doubles are well made, and some of them are bargains. I think this 16 gauge SxS by Ugartechea is both. Ugartechea has been around since 1922 — a long time for a Spanish gunmaker — and […]

J.P. Sauer and Son is one of the world’s oldest gunmakers. Founded in 1751, they’ve been building all sorts of guns for a long time now. Some of these guns have been beautiful side-by-side shotguns. The side-by-side shotgun you see here was probably made for the American market between 1910-1930. I love the scalloped action […]

Fans of the TV show Downton Abbey, you know that attention to detail is one of the things that makes this period drama so much fun. From the tea set used on Lady Mary’s breakfast table to the cut of Lord Grantham’s suit, Downton Abbey gets things right — most of the time, anyway. In […]

This one won’t be along for long! Browning’s BSS side-by-side shotguns are rugged, reliable doubles. Most of the ones you see have pistol grips and 26″. This one is a Sporter, the model that’s a bit lighter a lot harder to find. If you’re looking for a great pheasant / duck gun, this is it. […]

Good friends, good dogs, plenty of birds. That’s all it takes for a nice day in the field – in the UK or over here. This is one of the best produced shooting videos I’ve seen on Youtube. It was shot by Jonathan M McGee, a man who knows shooting as well as he knows […]

Could this be the finest .410 Parker in existence? Perhaps. It’s a CHE (Quality 4) and Connecticut Shotgun just listed it on Gunsinternational.com. Parker introduced their C-grade guns in 1875. They were never very popular, and the company built fewer than 1,900 C-grades in all (1,673 were hammerless modles, or CHs). Very few of these […]

Here’s a tough shotgun to find, not because of its gauge or grade, but because of its condition. Twenty-gauge Fox Serlingworths are easy to track down. But how often do you see one that’s almost new? A.H. Fox introduced Sterlingworths in 1910 and made them until 1946. Sterlingworths were the lowest-grade, least expensive double the […]
