For what it is worth, a lady on my trap league shot the same gun in 16 gauge, for about a decade and a half. She pheasant hunted with her brothers in South Dakota for two weeks every year. Her Dad bou ...

I’ve handled Lloyd’s gun, comes up very nice (we are both left handed) and it is as good as a grouse gun gets. Very, very nice piece of kit.

Buy a box of English fiber wad ammunition, and pattern the gun. You will likely find this actually opens the pattern to what you need.
Plastic wads tighten your choke to about the next level. Your mo ...

My 1959 Sweet 16 is not so picky. Wipe down the tube with a cloth. Put on a drop or two of oil. Smear it around with my hand. Put it back together. Shoot it. Works every time.

Just understand what exactly you will be using the gun for. A model T is pretty cool to buzz around in on a sunny weekend, it would get old as a daily driver. There is a cost to be paid for low pressu ...

The OP didn’t say how much shooting he was going to do. I used to be a fan of old guns, not so much anymore-once bitten, twice shy. The screws in the top of the receiver, for the intercepting sears, a ...

There are four Mossberg 500s on the property, 2 12 gauge guns, a 20 gauge youth, and a .410.
Solid, everyday guns. The 500 came in 16 gauge for one year, 1961 I think. Many people who would otherwise ...

Great repeaters. Not maintenance free, and you need to have a grasp of what loads you are using, and how the shock absorber needs to be set. Reliable, when seen to. A guide in Canada I knew had a 12 t ...
