Lloyd,

Looks like Mark put it up on GI 12-20.

And it shows that it is already sold on his Website. Doesn't take long for a truly special piece to go.

Gosh, but it was handsome!!

How would you feel about putting those same loads through those guns 100-250 times, on a typical league night at your club? Or, in Argentina?
Recoil sensitivity is a progressive thing. If you don't understand it, you are blessed.
But, that doesn't mean you won't come to understand it.

Lloyd, that gun had but 1 7/8ths DAH. I wouldn't have had to worry about shooting it well, I was quite safe from that siren.

I shoot 7/8 ounce at sporting clays, and 1 ounce for hunting. I don't think I referred to high volume shooting, and do not think I would be shooting that Lancaster 12/20 as a target gun.

No, you didn't refer specifically to high volume shooting-you asked how shooting such a light gun could be a problem.

For some, in different circumstances, it can be. This may be a complete shock, but, not everyone is just like you. And, that is actually OK.

We're done now, right?

The subject of light guns and recoil is interesting. I have two Browning Twentyweights. One is 6lbs. and the other is 6lbs. 1oz. Fine to carry and shoot now and then but even a box of 1oz. loads fired at clays becomes very unpleasant. Something about the double shuffle of the action gives me a headache. By contrast I have a 16 bore Darne that weighs 5lbs. 13ozs. and a box of 1oz. shells at clays is zero problem. I have never fired more than about 25 rounds at one time thrugh the Darne but I'm pretty sure it would beat me up were I to do so. No getting around phisics. Darne used to claim that their breech design reduced felt recoil by supporting the case heads tightly, it may very well be true.

Ted: the true danger of a Siren is actually holding it.

With a minimum barrel wall thickness of .022 and .020 I couldn't get too excited about that gun.
