What guns did you see you liked but didn't buy?

Sounds as vendors sold quite well.

Found this one heartily looking for a new home and picked it up yesterday after getting it moved across the state line from NC on Sunday. Gave it a good cleaning today. So looking forward to following around some dogs with it in the fall.

My wife and I like the Fall Southern because we go to shoot and socialize with our SxS friends. The Fall shooting is better than the Spring because Rick has more land on which to set a better variety of targets.

If you want to drool over beautiful guns and accessories that the vendors bring go to the Spring Southern. If you want to shoot go to the Fall Southern. We attend and shoot at both and enjoy each for what it offers.

I hope both continue until I'm too old to shoot.

Wow that is a beauty. My pass was hard at first, but easy in the end. I imported a gun in about 2016 from England and it was #2 of a pair including the original double case. Then, wandering around late Sunday afternoon, I spotted its twin. I haggled the vendor down to 49.5K and after a brief internal struggle made the rational decision and offered to sell mine alongside his if the new buyer wanted the pair and case. If it sells it will be a 2.5x return in 6 years and it will definitely justify some further purchases to celebrate my success.

Thank you, Stephen, I'm really excited that it worked out. Started looking at this gun when at the Southern last year. Found them a bit more motivated to sell this time.
It's a pretty basic 20 gauge with a splinter forearm, double triggers, and ejectors. 2 1/4 DAH, 1 9/16 DAC, and 14 9/16 LOP.
I have yet to figure out whose initials are on it. The dealer never learned though I believe did try to find out. In fact, I've seen some correspondence from Nick Harlow, the Gun Room manager at Purdey, that indicates that will not release that tidbit until a gun is 50 years old. Have a suggestion on all that?

I obtained the original buyer's identity on a Boss gun I once owned by purchasing a copy of the original build sheet on the gun which indicated by whom the order was made.
Might work on your new Purdey. Really beautiful gun by the way...Geo

Damn Vic, that's one pretty Purdey. It was good to see you again in Sanford.

I picked up a nice Purdey 20 bore a couple of years ago from a friend. It has three sets of barrels. The original 29" set and a 28" set added in 1928. Mine was made in 1921 and delivered to it's owner Christmas week of that year. #2 of a pair. He sent it back in 1928 for the second set of barrels and to have a single trigger installed. Purdey's second variant of their single trigger.
Somewhere around that time he had a third set of barrels made, a set of 25" from Westly Richards and so marked with their address and addressing the King at that time. I would only guess for driven grouse as the choking is open in one barrel and tight in the second.
The little Purdey has third bite, clip face as well.
When I asked Purdey about the gun I got all kinds of answers. I think most of the ones you deal with are just salesmen up front. I did get a letter though but the first letter was incorrect so I had to email them to get the correct information on the second email.
Cheers, Mike Proctor

George, I thought you got the information from the Burpee's Seed Catalog, Tomato section. "Boss gun I once owned." That's a great line for a cocktail party, but we know the rest of the story. smile Gil

Rick Hemingway is in the business of throwing targets. When/if the Fall event fails to make money for him it will stop. Until then it’s a great place to shoot and I hope it continues. Vendors would be a plus but it’s not as well attended

The venue, not the event. Deep River is a very cramped site for parking and just overall space, They never change the targets either. Plenty of other nicer venues across the South to have this event. Providence Hill Farm in the Jackson< MS area, is a super venue, but the promoters may not be willing to pay their fee:
