Get it. My first 16 sxs was a $600 Belgian guild gun and it is nowhere near the quality of that Geco. I shot a triple on chukars with it the first year, fell in love with the shallow, smaller receiv ...

That French Excelsior sidelock on Jacqua's looks like a very nice gun, but not too nice to take a few tumbles in the grouse woods. I know, not Spanish, but ooh la la. Very Happy

I could be persuaded to put one of those Damascus Parker lifter action straight grip hammer 10's in my gun safe. I've always liked those. And, you can load those 10's down to very safe levels while ...

That's too good a deal to pass up, so I got a case. Hope those make a good long range chukar load.

That's a nice gun, and would put any nitro special to shame. I've had a couple belgian boxlocks like that, and they are great shooters. Lively barrels, and the straight stock, nice wood is a winner. ...

Nice going Gil! I went out after snipe this morning, but didn't see any. Pintails were flying though, so I'm going to head out for my last hunt of the year tomorrow with my grassed up layout boat to ...

I've recently been doing some snipe hunting, which requires no tox ammo where I hunt. I've been using my 16 hammer gun and 12 damascus Lefever with #7 bismuth reloads, but it gets expensive and time ...

Not unless all your shooting is inside 25 yds. Once you take it out, you can't put it back in.

Wish they would bring a double trigger, straight grip BSS 16 to market. I would buy that over an Fair Iside.

I'm going to buy a box of Federal 1 1/8oz high brass loads and try them out for long range shooting. If they work ok, I'll buy a flat. Otherwise, I'm leaning towards getting a flat of Fiocchi Golden ...

I had my short chambered steel barreled Husky 16 chambers lengthened and I'm really glad I did. I regularly shoot it with 1 1/8oz heavy field loads and the recoil reduction was noticeable. However, ...
