    Obselete shotguns

    Since turning over most of my guns to the younger generation I seem to have a thing for old single shots. They just seem to follow me home, old Savage's and Iver Johnson's especially. Just like to restore them and find them a good home. Of course I have to shootem' first.

    ain't nothin' obsolete 'bout my stevens 12-bore, though there's a few fancy-dans down at the gun club that wish it was; they don't like the way it treats clay birds. i think they paid more'n 55 bucks fer them perazzis 'n brownings they're missin' with. i got a cheap 20 that shoots purty good, too, and ye'll not catch me passin' up a 16-bore single if one comes along; kinda like fillin' up the stable, so to speak. good on ya, hoss; keep it up!
    mind yer topknot!

    Confidence and practice make the difference. I love my 50 year old beasts I do not care if the big spenders turn thier noses up at em, they work.

    Yep.... my old Iver Johnson "Champion" 20ga single shot has already put a 5pt'r in the freezer. I ain't afraid to use it for the 30yd and under shots.

    We need to define "obsolete", an H R or Savage or what ever made post war, is simply a single shot econo shotgun, modern steel, and chamber length, etc.

    A private label single shot, made in 1910 or before, produced in Belgium, is often desired by those who simply will never retire a gun, and they may want to punch it out to 3.5 shells, and steel shot on top of that, and get insulted when told, "buddy, the good Lord only gave you ten fingers, true, you can get by with less than ten, but it makes it all that much more difficult to pick your nose"

    Now if it doesnt flop around like a duck on the wing, or does not have pits in the barrel, near rusted through, maybe, but believe me, the majority of them rattle like a WW 1 issue Govt model, and can often fit a match book between the breech and bolt face.

    And its not at all uncommon, to see guns as described, and their owners want to shoot geese with them.
    Two things that have never and will never be successful... the "war" on poverty, and gun control laws.

    No shotgun is really obselete if it still shoots, I have an old Savege 20GA farm gun, hammerless 220, my one and only, old girl gets the job done. I never could shoot any gun as well as this old Savage.
