Ye Olde Shotgun Picture Thread

Because it's coming, probably sooner rather than later

Great Grandpa's shotgun, manufactured in 1905. Supposedly, it figured prominently in the engagement and marriage of one of my great aunts, when she found herself in the family way.

Of course, y'all are already familiar with his great grandson's idea of a shotgun. :mrgreen:

No shotgun thread is complete without an 870.

This one I practically stole from a pawn shop Friday before a payday in the pre-Obama gun buying panic days. The proprietor was eager to raise a bit of cash to take in some more deals. Completed the package with a great deal on the short barrel from the odd used bits bit at a local gunshop.

This is the Son&Heirs now. It will be leaving the safe shortly as he planes to marry over the winter semester break.

His-and-hers shotguns:
shotguns (1024x576).jpg
The top two are Ruger Red Labels, 12 and 20 gauge, with choke tubes.
The bottom two are Ithaca/SKB M-100s, likewise in 12 and 20 gauge, but the fixed chokes have been opened up from full/modified to modified/IC.

Honestly, I like the SxSs better than the O/Us for wingshooting.

Okay, I'll play.

The offside of a stock my Dad whittled for his Winchester Model 12. He shot absolutely everything with that shotgun. It belongs to my younger son now.

Dad/s Savage 12 gauge. Made just before WWII, it has the flaming bomb and was bought from the US Air Force in the mid 1960s. It now belongs to my second son, who has Browning pattern shotguns from both grandfathers.
Image

My Winchester 1200 in 20 gauge. This is my upland gun. 28 " barrel, Win-choke, I've had this shotgun for about 40 years.
Image

Finally, but not least, my old Remington 870 that's served yeoman duty as a police shotgun for over a decade.

What may or may not be stashed in my pickup.

Remington 870 Express of unknown vintage, with a Speedfeed pistolgrip, a Mossberg made 18" barrel, ATI "shoulder thing that goes up", John Masen forearm, and a Remington two-round extender. In a paycheck or two, I'll probably add a tritium from sight. There's also sling swivels and if needed, I can use the strap from the scabbard as a sling.

Due to a recent incident at a friend's place with her asshole neighbors, I've named this shotgun "Subtlety". (My .44 Special snubnose is likewise now known as "Tact"...) Me just being my usual big and glowering self was sufficient to keep the situation from escalating, so I didn't need to use Tact and Subtlety, but it was good to have them along.

When I look in the mirror, I am happy to see, some of that nine year old boy, who used to be me.
