    I've got a 1930s A5 through a 2020 SX4. The rest fall somewhere between those two.

    I need some of them $4.95 boxes of shells. Did those come over on the Mayflower?

    Great Granddad had a .410 Fox single shot that I used when I was ten. Killed 4 quail with one shot one morning on the rise.

    My uncle Clem loaned me that gun's twin for my first however-many years of hunting. Still haven't figured out what I did to **** him off badly enough to do that.

    I killed ducks and pheasants with mine.
    It's a 20. 3 inch chamber. We won a crappy other gun and traded for the lightweight special field.
    Very light. Kicks a might

    Remington 11-87 SP that I bought in 1987 after my brother and I took a dip off the Maine coast on Christmas eve and came home minus our 1100’s. It’s had a few parts replaced over the years but it’s never let me down. Wish I had as good of luck with women…..
