My 1904 Winchester 1894 in 25-35 WCF and an Old Roy, a nice combination.

The old ones are very cool.

I love shooting the “old stuff”

For the past three years I’ve been buying pre-1950 (most pre-1920) shooter shotguns and shooting them at a charity clay shoot.

Now I’ve got the bug for a double hammer, double barrel sxs black powder shotgun that takes shells and want to roll my own black powder shells and take it to the shoot next year.

I also have a couple Savage 99’s in .300SAV.....

Old guns are fun. I inherited a roughly 1860 .41 cal rimfire derringer.....and I now have ammo for it thanks to a great friend!

Indeed you do and it looked good. That was a funny looking round but glad it can be put to good use Jes.

Love the old stuff and enjoy shooting them.
I have a Winchester Model 12 shotgun from 1913 and it takes 2.5" shells. I have to order them from Atlanta for this gun. The gun is 108 years old and still can shoot a limit of doves.

Love the old guns, love the quality leather. $7.85 written with Sharpie on the ammo, prolly came from a feed store, or Gibson's, when I was still living off my parents.

Why not? I just acquired a winchester 1892 38 wcf made in 1899. Great condition but the previous owner added varnish to the stock.
