    Most all days it's the versamax.
    Once in while I'll take the old 3 inch 1100, think I bought it in 76.

    I've posted these pics before. But they are my oldest fowling pieces. I don't use them enough but they see the marsh now and then. Grandma's 49 Super and Grandpa's 55 model 12. 20191203_174625.jpg 20181108_113428.jpg

    Beware of the man with only one gun because he probably knows how to use it.

    No wadded panties here but just curious how old is that shell? Reason I ask is because the definition of inert changed in 1952. Prior to that inert just meant the fuse was inert, not necessarily the shell. After 1952 it meant the shell itself.

    '72 auto 5 gets the most trips to the blind each year.
    Early season when I need a longer length of pull I take my xtrema 2 out. 20131220_095838.jpg
