I heard George retired. Wonder if his partner is still at the game, or if it is all over?

I want one of those double trigger, extractor guns, just not enough to be divorced over it.

i like ejectors..they are cool...but they are an annoying distraction on the target range...high volume scores are about focus and concentration...one does not need to have to deal with flying empties...when working on breaking 25 straight...

Thinking about a comment reminded me that though my Parkers have ejectors, most of the time I catch the empty to avoid littering or having to bend over to pick it up.

And my double rifles have only extractors - who wants that expensive brass lost in the weeds?

as i understand it...

the reason for the development of ejector guns in england, was so me load's loader could reload a pair of guns faster, so he could kill more pheasants as they were driven over his stand...not much sportsmanship in that...just killing as much as he could, as fast as he could...

ejector guns became popular here around 1900, due to the popularity of live pigeon shooting and pass shooting at flocks of waterfowl...

the demand to be able to put a lot lead in the air resulted in the creation of the winchester model 1893 pump gun...and others shortly thereafter...and there again its all about killing as much as you can as quick as you can...

and the ultimate high volume bird killing machine is of course the semi automatic self loading shotgun, beginning with the browning a5 in 1902...

it is a sad commentary, that so called sportsmen gave up the beautiful, graceful, elegant doublegon in favor of ugly, clubby, clunky high volume killing machines...

but, alas, as a result of the popularity of self loading guns, many fine vintage doubles wound up in the back of the closet and forgotten about...occasional one of these beauties surfaces and passes through my hands...what a joy it is to see, touch and handle them for a while, before they are passed to another who appreciates their special value...

Written by a non-shooter. No empties 'fly'. They are popped into the palm of the grip hand, and removed from the barrel when about halfway out. They are then deposited autonomically in your shooting vest back pocket. There is no more conscious thought doing this than simply breathing.

jones...i began shooting a 410 shotgun in the mid fifties...most likely before you were born...

hunted birds for about 50 years, mostly with 16 gauge guns of various designs...

these days, i shoot mostly skeet...trap is boring...no sporting clays facilities near me...

i find ejectors to be an unnecessary distraction...and if you dont, well thats ok with me and good for you...

and by the way, have you ever broke 25 straight? i never have and probably never will...but as long as that windmill is there, i will tilt it...

Any grown-asp man that has the hand-eye-coordination to shoot a flying disk with a gun can surely cup his hand over ejectors and catch the empty hulls. What am I missing?
