I know what you’re thinking: What’s so rare about a 16 gauge Winchester Model 21? If that’s all this double was, I’d say “nuttin”. But this SxS has three important important features which push it in the holi-cr@p-that’s-hard-to-find category: double triggers, ejectors, and very shootable dimensions. The Winchester M21 was produced for 60 years: 1931 to 1991. […]

A hundred years ago, live pigeon shooting was a huge pastime in the U.S. People participated in shoots throughout the country, and the top shots traveled the country–and the world–competing and winning huge amounts of prize money. Gunmakers responded to this popularity by building shotguns for this sport. Here’s the one that L.C. Smith offered from 1893-1913. It’s […]

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.
