Here’s a great little OU for everything from quail to grouse and woodcock. These Rizzini’s are built on a proven, triggerplate design. With a color-case hardened action, they’re great looking doubles.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’re celebrating it with friends, family & loved ones. I honor of everyone’s favorite T-day meal, here are three American doubles perfect for hunting America’s bird. Of these, the 10 gauge Ithaca is my favorite. With 3 1/2″ chambers, it throws an 8-gauge size load. Thankfully, they’re reall heavy guns. RARE L.C.Smith […]

Every time I see one of these videos from Sky Dance Kennels, I think “that’s the life.” Horses, great dogs, wide-open country and lots of birds. If there’s a heaven, I hope it’s like this. In this video you can see some of Sky Dance’s young setters stretch their legs, crack their tails and show […]

What am I missing here? I’ve looked at this side-by-side a bunch of times, and I just don’t see any warts. Sure it has been reblued and the wood has been redone, but if the barrels are really tight and on the face, and if the gun is in proof, it’s a great deal. The Army […]

Here’s another great video from the UK’s Nick Ridley. This one is of Ted, a young Cocker Spaniel learning the ins-and-outs of being a gun dog. So much enthusiasm…

Boss & Co builds fantastic doubles. But some of their guns are peculiar–like the SxS you see here. With double beads on the action, banner-style engraving, and lovely patina, it’s one of the nicest pre-WW1 Boss side-by-sides I’ve seen. But it does have a quirk. Compare its forend to the forend on other Boss SxSs (like this one) […]

For the next installment in our “cocker spaniel, you’ve-got-to-see-this video series”, check out this one from Nick Ridley over in the UK. Over there, they use spaniels to hunt rabbits. The vid is shot with a drone, and if you watch closely you’ll spot bunnies bolting from the cover, unseen by the shooter.

Field bred Cocker Spaniels are great little dogs, and in the U.S. today, they’re more popular than ever. Over the next few days, I’m going to put up a few videos showing what they’re can do. This one is from Tom Ness @ Oahe Kennels. He’s a top trainer and breeder of these little dynamos.

Here’s a good deal. These sidelock Browning BSSs are nice doubles, and far superior to most SxSs in the same price range. They’re Holland & Holland-pattern side-by-sides , made in Japan by Miroku and were offered from 1983-1987. Today, they’ve proven themselves to be solid, dependable firearms. At 6 1/2lbs, this one is just right for all kinds of […]
