I've heard it said that "God does not subtract the time from a man's life spent bird hunting". That said, I plan on being out there every fall season that I can stand upright!

Steve,

An outstanding pinfire. Or is it a converted pinfire? Not sure from the angle provided but it would appear the hammers have been changed or modified.

I'm thinking my last gun should be a 36cal. smooth bore single barrel fowler with a flint lock.

Not a pin-fire at all, but an original central-fire, built for the early French Schneider cartridge design. The action is a slide-and-drop (another French design, by Gastinne). Lancaster made his early central-fire guns in two types, either for his proprietary base-fire cartridge, or Schneider’s. A fascinating gun, with this one having been nitro-proofed.

Mr. Campero, that single-shot is a beauty. I have an Army& Navy British 20ga single with the hammer, but mine has a top lever. I can't hit very well with it, but I enjoy carrying it. I've always felt the old hammer singles were the coolest shotguns around...Geo

Stunningly beautiful gun, Mr Campero!

And I agree with Mr Newbern, hammer singles are truly special.

Mr. Newbern, I'm agree with you. Old hammer single barrel are special. Show us your Army&Navy, please. Mine has 28 ga chamber but 24 overvored barrel. Great and fast patterns!

Mr. Nash, what an outstanding underlever single barrel! Saw in other thread! Lovely 16 ga Thomas Seymour!

When does my "dotage" start? I must be getting close at 76.

My father hunted through the fall he was 80, 1987/8 season. Carried his 12-gauge AE-Grade Remington and his 2-frame 12-gauge Parker Bros. every bit as often as the 20-gauge Winchester 101 that I brought him when our ship stopped in Japan in 1972. I think he quit going because all of his buddies were dead and I lived on the other side of the country.

OMG I like single shots. That's a beaut!

My Tolley isn't a hammer gun but it's still pretty damn fine.
