My youngest boy -- but unfortunately I don't own the gun

Crap, thought I had a pic or two of my reloading set up... will have to snap a few and throw them up. I also will grab a few pics of my guns... I don't have anything crazy... just enough to get the job done.

Gun is an LC Smith 12 ga. Field Grade Featherweight (full / mod). 1942 production according to serial number. It's in fair shape and I hunted with it for years. I eventually joined the LC Smith fan forum online and discovered that this shotgun is a rare military model (note the "flaming bomb" stamp in picture below). They were not used in combat, rather, WWII bomber gunners started their training by spending dozens of hours at the trap range. This helped cement the idea of leading the target, etc.

I used to take this waterfowl hunting and even fired a few heavy 2-shot loads through it. It's a 2 3/4 inch chambers so that somewhat limits it. However, once I joined the online club everyone said I was extremely lucky I didn't destroy it with heavy modern loads. They say I can ONLY buy expensive ultra-lightweight low-power shells. Well, I still shoot the el cheapo 8 and 9 shot trap loads and I'm sure it's fine.

There's something about the asthetic of a vintage side by side out in the field. I just feel so 'rustic'. :P

Latest score remington 870 wingmaster....slightly modified. (Shifty eyes) I've still got to check barrel length from the inside.....from the out side its um close. Overall length is good.

If all lengths prove to be legal I figure 100bux for the shotty and a 1/4 case of shells is a fing steal. If not I gotta get another barrel, might see if a fixed muzzle brake would constitute I dont need much....

After that, new furniture and a tube extension. If length is legal good zombie gun for about 2-225 if not probably another 100 bux.

Only drawback the wingmaster is apparently a single pump....so for loaded home defense ill need to aqquire brass shells.

And the full package.

Single pump....pump trigger pump trigger.....cant pump pump pump theres a safety to pump a second time without squeezing the trigger. I do not know how this action will work live yet, may not be able to hold the trigger down and steady pump.

This is an issue because if left loaded the shell in waiting will oval out. So typicall rule of thumb for me is loaded, chambered, bad guy, pump pump, bang....so if there is an oval issue hopefully its cleared b4 I need to squeeze the trigger. Also adds the sound as warning......

I have one of those WWII trench shotgun remakes...strait out of china....with the barrel shround and all and it can be fan fired (hold the trigger annd pump pump pump) and it fires like crazy.

My favorite go-to shotgun right now is my alum receiver saveage semi auto 12 ga. Its a copy of the browning A5 and it jus soaks up the recoil so nicely! Will post pics of both later.

My Colt Diamondback I've owned since I was 12. It is a 22, and came with a 6" bbl and was blued. I shot many informal .22 cal silohuette tournaments with that Colt. Several years ago, I found a spare 4" barrel that had external wear, so I had the 4" mounted and the gun and spare barrel was sent for a Metalife finish. It looks just like stainless steel.

Given the impact the ammo shortage is having on availability and price, I thought that I'd share a new find with fellow gun enthusiasts. High Country Ammunition is a small manufacturer of ammo based in CO. They seem to have very good prices and decent availability at least in the calibers that I use (plenty of 9 mm and .45 ACP but no .380 ACP or .44 mag). Based upon the reviews, their customers like their ammo.

I just picked up 500 rounds of 9 mm for $150 including shipping. I'll let you know how it shoots.

Brad someone in my family not long ago inherited an old cheap 38 snubby. Everyone who had shot it swore you couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it. I tried it on a milk jug at about 25'-30'. The double action trigger was pretty heavy and made it hard to hold on target. I just cocked it and shot it single action till I got a feel for it and was surprised how well it did for having fixed sights like yours. Single action I had no trouble hitting the jug 6 out of 6. A few cylinders that way to learn the sight picture and I hit ok with it double action. Target gun no way but It'll do in the nightstand. You might give that a try.

Tatohead, I love that old side by side! I've got an old cheap when new H+R 16 gauge single shot break open. Nothing fancy at all. But I like to shoot it. The choke is actually swaged into the barrel.

I got to shoot some clays recently for the 1st time. I truly enjoyed it. Would love to find a decent old side by side.

I had a ball (pun intended) with it at the range yesterday. I had trouble loading the first cylinder and didn't get some of the caps positioned properly, so a couple of caps failed to ignite the charges. But after that, the gun performed marvelously. With the long sight radius, it was no problem putting rounds in the 9 ring at 25 ft. It has absolutely no kick with the recommended charge of 28 grains of Pyrodex P. Plan to hit the range again today.

No kick ?? What's the fun in that ?? It's like shooting a hand held cannon... Ever shoot at a bouling pin ?? It's amazing the difference in damage inflickted between a modern riffle and the old flint locks ...

The fun is the flash and smoke that comes out of the muzzle. People take notice.

Recoil has a lot to do with the mass of the firearm. I have shot hot .44 mag rounds out of my Henry Big Boy and Mark's Ruger Super Blackhawk with almost no kick because of their massive steel barrels. The New Army is similar with the 8" barrel and the rammer adding a lot of mass to the front of the gun. I know that a 28 grain charge of Pyrodex isn't all that much, but a .454" diameter ball is still a big chunk of lead by anyone's standards even if it is only traveling at 800 ft per sec.

I have an 1851 Navy version of the 44. It is a heck of a lot of work fun! The big boom and smoke always gets attention. I have found that giving the 11 caps a slight pinch makes them a little oblong and helps them stay seated. You still get misfires and they are always a little more nerve wracking because of all of the components. The 1851 doesn't have any frame over the cylinder so the rear sight is a notch in the hammer. Makes it kinda tricky. The worst part is the clean up because everything is covered. I'm going to have to dig mine out and go shooting again now to play with this one!

Sometimes work can be fun, especially when it comes to Isuzu trucks and black powder firearms. 8)

I am glad I am getting some to dig out their black powder firearms! They are not only fun, but they are also alot less expensive to fire than firearms that fire modern ammo. Not only is the ammo cheaper, but it seems to last much longer. :roll:

I went with the Remington design rather than the Colt design because I wanted the top strap. It makes sighting and removal of the cylinder easier. Also there are conversion cylinders available to convert to .45 lc in the unlikely event that I ever decide to go that route.

I have been using CCI #10 caps, which are are good fit and do not require pinching. I think my issue is a bit of oil in the nipples. The revolver was dripping with oil when I unboxed it and I oiled it real good after cleaning (soaking the cylinder and nipples in soapy water). I have taken the pistol to the range twice, and the failure to fires always occur on the first cylinder. I read somewhere that some cap and ball shooters like to fire a round of caps with the cylinders empty to make sure the nibbles are clear. I am going to try that next time.

Yep, Hack, you done it. Made me drag out my Ruger Old Army. Haven't shot it in a long while but that's fixing to change. Ruger calls for a #10 cap, but like N law, I have to pinch 'em to get them to stay seated, and that doesn't always work. I saw a pic of a reloading stand, for lack of a better word, in an article in the American Rifleman. My Dad made this one for me. Works pretty good. One thing about loading/ reloading one of these.... a steady table makes it a lot easier.

Yea, I am bad. Even got an email from Jerry with a pic of his Colt .45 replica. I just hope that the Flintlock range at URE is open in the Spring so we can get together and fire some of these beauties.
