I love the American guns, but I hate the prices you have to pay for good ones. On most Parkers, Foxes, L.C. Smiths — especially the higher grades — you’re paying more for a name and its sentimental connections than you are for true quality. But when you buy Belgian and French doubles, different dynamics come into […]

There’s killing and there’s hunting: One takes a life, the other makes our lives more  meaningful, while giving us the opportunity to show respect and admiration for the game we pursue and the world we all inhabit. This video does a nice job of capturing hunting and what makes it so special.

Stone walls. Grown-over apple orchards. English setters. If you’re a sucker for all the trappings of traditional grouse hunting, you’ll probably like the classic American shotguns posted here. I’ve called the Fox Sterlingworth the gateway drug of doubles. It has been the first side-by-side for a lot of guys (including me), and it has initiated […]

W. & C. Scott used to one of the UK’s biggest — and greatest — gunmakers. Founded in 1832 by brothers William and Charles Scott, it joined with P. Webley in 1897 to create Webley & Scott, and they retained the name W. & C. Scott for use on their finest firearms. Up into the 20th […]

From I dug up online, it looks like the Pittsburgh Firearms Co. was from around 1860 to the mid 1880s. Sometime towards the end of their life, they imported Westley Richards’ Anson & Deeley […]

Chasing chukars at Addieville …

Lexi and I made it down to Addieville East Game Farm yesterday to chase some chukars along with some friends of this sight. Lexi had never seen a chukar. She’s hasn’t done much hunting in fields, either. So I was a little worried about how she would handle things. She bumped two, but overall, she handled […]

Looking at doubles on Gunbroker.com is a tedious task, and most days I see the same overpriced, warmed-over junk that has been listed there for years. But every sometimes an interesting gun pops up. Miroku is one of the largest gun makers in the world. For many years, they made Charles Daly over unders, and since 1973 they’ve made Browning’s […]
