Duck hunting with classic SxS you say.....

This was from late November on Lake St Clair at the Mud Creek Club. From the left there is a Lindner Daly Diamond Quality, a Fox HE SuperFox, a Magnum Browning Superposed (we have more work to do on getting Wally thinking straight Haha!) and a Custom Fox B grade with 32" barrels.

The Fox B grade was the subject of a thread over at DoubleGun about 10 years ago as it was being rebuilt and is the most beautiful gun I have ever seen. And it works well in the hands of it's creator. He scored a true double on a pair of greenheads that day. Two birds buzzed the decoys, one shot rings out, two birds fall, stone dead.

I know that gun he's holding quite well-I might have used it for waterowl except that I also have a 1929 Ideal 12 Longraange Smith- SST-AE- 32" F&F, 3". Bismuth No. 2 shot- fine even patterns at 35-45 yards (est'd range) pass shooting mainly. If I were be hunting with DU groups over large layouts of mallard dekes nowadays, I'd have Buck Hamlin open up the right hand barrel just a tad--but when hunting divers on Saginaw Bay- guided hunts- I stay with my older Belgian Brng. A-5 light 12- 28"VR and Briley Long Chokes- No 2 Black Cloud Steel- and if you use a side-by-side for big water layout shooting (as our Grandfathers may have done- rig up a bunji cord just in case you get tipped over. I use the front carry sling clip on the take-down knob on the shotgun end- and 6-7 feet of bunji anchored to a thwart in our boat with a caribiner's type locking hook--I'd love to dunk a pair of canvasbacks with that older Elsie- but I'm not willing to risk it "Going Titanic" in Michigan's Saginaw Bay- RWTF

Reminds me of a diver hunt on Spiritwood Lake when my partner's A5 got so covered with ice that it became inoperable. But i could still break open my Nitro Special and keep shooting.

My Marine uncle told me that the practice during winter campaigns in Korea was to urinate on frozen Garands and BARs when they were too frozen to fire. Would probably work on an A5 as well.
One more reason to clean guns after the hunt.
