Here are two rare doubles that Cabela’s recently listed. CE-grade Fox shotguns are not easy to find — especially in 16 & 20 gauge. That being said, I think these two are priced very aggressively. Even though they appear to be in nice, original condition, $20,000 is a lot to for either one — especially […]

Here’s a great looking American double that’s coming to auction tomorrow, 7/25 @ 9am EST. Morphy’s Auctions in Denver, PA, has the gun. From what I can see, it looks like a nice, old SXS. The only problem I can see is the bbls look like they may have been blued at one time – […]

Beretta’s BL grade OUs are great shotguns. Introduced in the ’60s, these doubles were imported into the US by the Garcia Corp through the ’70s. These guns were basically stripped-downed version of the company’s ASE line of OUs. The ASE were boxlock versions of the Beretta SO-series sidelock shotguns. The BLs feature a shallow, low profile […]

What hunting is really about …

I used to make it out to South Dakota for the pheasant opener each year. While we always shot a lot of birds, the experience was about a lot more than the birds we brought home. This video from Team Wild TV reminds me of what I loved so much about it. While my crowd […]

Here’s something unsual: A hammerless 12g James Woodward & Sons side-by-side shotgun with a second-pattern James Purdey & Sons thumbhole lever. Very odd. This Woodward looks like it’s right around the turn of the 19th century. In it’s day, the action was pretty current technology. But the mechanism that opens it — the Purdey thumbhole lever […]

I have no idea who TAK who was (Theo A. Koch?), but I do know he had an awesome mom. How? Because she bought him the two shotguns you see here. Both of these OUs were built in Germany and then stocked by Frederick Surkamer, a Chicago-area gunsmith who built custom rifles, worked for Von […]

I’ve always liked B. Rizzinis. With their low-profile, Boss/Woodward inspired design and proven trigger-plate style actions, they’re innovative shotguns, right up there with Beretta BLs and 686s-series. If you’re looking for a are nice, all around O/Us, with a bit more style, class, and polish, the B. Rizzinis are hard to beat. But even though I just said […]

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. It is based in […]
