If fine shotguns are addicting, this Webley & Scott Model 700 is their gateway drug. Well made, nice handling, and affordable, these Birmingham-built side-by-sides are the perfect way to get hooked on British doubles. Webley & Scott built the M700 on an Anson & Deeley-style action, one of the most reliable  shotgun designs ever created, […]

There are two doubles I always recommend as all around “great guns”. The first is a Beretta 686 Onyx. The other is the O/U you see here. The Aurora over under was made in Italy by B. Rizzini, and Sig Arms imported them for a while, first for L.L. Bean and then for themselves (or […]

It’s rare that a twelve-gauge, A-grade Fox excites me. But when I saw this one, I started doing the mental math to figure out how to pay for it. With it’s straight grip and 32″ barrels, it’s an unusual A grade. But even though the gun looks right, that butt stock has me scratching my head. Is it […]

Being a sucker for history, double barrel shotguns, and all things tweedy, I’ve always wanted to shoot in the UK. If I had the time, I would definitely join Delaney & Sons this fall in Wales for their 2015 Harding Shoot. Established in 1999, The Harding Shoot runs from November 15th to November 21st.

Pound for pound, here’s one of the best shotgun deals you’ll find anywhere. This massive 8g Lancaster double barrel weighs an arm-aching 13 lbs. 12 oz. It’s priced at $11,500 — or about $52.27 an ounce.
