remington 1885 double

picked up a nice 1885 in 12 gauge field grade today, serial 216XX, matching and unmolested. nice stuff, and in VG condition, right to the 80 years worth of cobwebs in the barrels. always fun to bring an old double back to life. have some 2" 7/8 oz shells from B&P to use in this short chambered number 1 steel barreled gun. with 30" bareels it goes a solid 9 pounds.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.


The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."
