I guess I'm already in my dotage at 83 and some health problems, I can't walk far enough to hunt grouse anymore.
I can't walk good enough to shoot sporting clays, but I do shoot skeet ( not very well).
Although I have a lot of guns it seems I mostly shoot a 20 gauge Parker Trojan and a Remington 20 gauge model 31.

All my Model 12's, except my 28 gauge- shells are too expensive, and in MI we can't hunt dove and quail- and those midget game birds are just right for a midget gauge gun. Grandson Jordan (senior in HS-Honor Student- has been shooting my 20 gauge M12- 28" mod. solid rib field gun--and is a good and very safe shot with it, as well as the Winchester .22's and the Colt Woodsman, and after going out with these past 2 Sats. for ducks and geese (succesfully) is getting his Fed. duck stamp and will join me next Sat-- He'll use my field M12 12 gauge 28" full mfg. 1921--I am proud of him.

Wow! That's stunning Steve, how often do you shoot it and what do you put through it?

I guess I’m down to one or two hunts a year now, so it doesn’t come out as often as it deserves. The barrels are nitro proofed, and I use low-pressure 2 1/2” shells, currently Challenger brand, with 7 1/2 pellets in a 7/8oz load. The gun would fit me better if I shot with a stiff collar and top hat, which I might do one of these days!

I looked up Challenger shells, pretty interesting. I have to run up to Toronto in the next few weeks, so I was thinking of grabbing a flat, but the pain to get it back across the border is just too much. Speaking of which, any great double gun shops or resources I should check out around Toronto?

I know I'm a nut case, but some of my dove, quail and duck guns are more than that to me. I have given them names that, to me, reflect their "personality". They're the ones I have really bonded with over the years and days afield. Maddie, Susie, Sledgehammer ....... my guns have been an important part of my life for some 62 years. Nothing about that has changed, as I ease into my senior years.

That's what you do when you don't have Sporting dogs to name ...

Here’s my dainty hammer single. However at 10-10 and 36” I will probably have to give it up in my dotage…
