Scouts get merit badges for shotgun shooting and rifle shooting using 20 gauge shotguns and .22 single shot rifles at summer camp. When I was involved with the troop we would set up a trap and throw clays on overnight hikes. Each patrol would compete against the other for the privilege of special dessert on Saturday night. We would also introduce them to center fire rifles on our annual Father/Son hike. But alas, the karens and lawyers at the national organization put the kabosch on that. No more fun.

My Dad sold those cards and got a Marlin. Not a single shot. It's a model 80. I still have it. It's very accurate. Old Marlins are nice.

My friend volunteers teaching marksmanship to the Scouts (and has for a long time). So yup, they still do it. He's a NRA instructor. I think the Scouts get a NRA badge or something. Maybe a hunter's safety card.

Re: Reloads for Winchester Low Recoil Low Noise Shells Jimmy W 06/17/24 10:07 PM
I was just wondering vam5067. You mentioned having a low noise shell. Do you wear ear plugs when you shoot? I shoot 2-3 times a week and that's what I use for silencing gun noise. đź‘Ť

What are you using these guns for, Hal? Are you using them for trap, skeet or both and sporting clays?

It will serve to distract the public from the way those "justices" are bopping around the planet on holiday on someone else's dime. wink

And here we have the Nutty Professor making yet another political post concerning the ethics of Supreme Court Justices who have accepted gifts of travel and vacation accommodations. This is the same Liberal Left crybaby who frequently whines about how political Threads and Posts drive people away, and are the death of this forum.

Does anyone here think that the Nutty Professor will ever mention the $3.7 million that Anti-gun Liberal Left Justice Sonia Sotomoyer has made from her memoir and children's book sales? And will he complain that she has directed her staff to strong-arm schools and libraries where she has speaking engagements to pre-purchase large numbers of those books? This is the same Liberal Left Justice who perjured herself during her Senate Confirmation Hearings by saying she supports the 2nd Amendment, yet has consistently ruled to infringe upon it.

Anti-gun Democrat Senate Leader Chuck Schumer is expected to introduce legislation to ban Bump Stocks in order to pressure Republicans into caving in to more anti-2nd Amendment crap in an election year. We shooters would be smart to encourage our Senators to make attachments to any such Anti-gun Bill to also close the Southern Border and impose the Death Penalty for drug dealers, since fentanyl, heroin, and other drugs pouring across the open border are now killing over 100,000 Americans every year. Fentanyl alone killed about 75,000 people in the U.S. in 2023. That number is over 200 deaths per day for fentanyl alone, and is far far greater than the number of people killed by bump stocks. But Anti-Gun Democrats would never think of imposing such severe penalties for drug dealers, or securing our borders. This isn't about saving lives. It is about the relentless attempts by Democrats to infringe upon the 2nd Amendment Rights of law abiding citizens.

These Anti-gun Democrats have the full support of a number of gun owners, some right here. That's a shame, and it is beyond stupid. But there is an enemy within our ranks, and that's a fact.

Not for this repair... you need a machinist who can make a new rod, and is able to weld or silver braze the new rod into the ejector blade. A weld repair at that thin point of fracture will likely fail sooner than later. No sense paying to do the job twice. And if it breaks while hunting, and the broken rod and blade gets kicked out and is lost in high grass, then it just got a lot more expensive.

Re: Broken Ejector KY Jon 06/17/24 06:43 PM
You have three options. Have that micro welded and refit, cut the stem 1/2” higher, towards the shell rim cut and have a new lower portion made from scratch, or just have a new one made. Being cheap, I would do the micro welding with the understanding it might have the shortest lifespan. Then go for one of the others choice later if it fails. Your decision might be dependent on what shooting volume this gun will have.

Re: OT Boy's Life Magazine dukxdog 06/17/24 03:56 PM
I was a Cub Scout then Boy Scout growing up.

My father was no outdoorsman so Scouting taught me many of the outdoor skills I have used through my life.

I read Boy's Life. We did 50 mile hikes, winter camping, Klondike Derby, Scout camp, Order of the Arrow, Philmont Scout Ranch in NM and Merit Badges.

I learned things in Scouts that have made me a good person with values.

I moved west from VT because I loved my Philmont experience so much at 14 years old.

It's sad that Scouting got ruined and woke.


I too have Jim Corbett's books. I saw his W.J. Jeffery .450-400 double rifle on display years back in the Elmer Keith collection. Elmer's family sold all his guns at auction a few years ago.

Side safety Austin Hawthorne 06/17/24 03:37 PM
Recently purchased a Francotte grade 20E with a greener side safety. I don't think it was a conversion since there is no remnant of a normal safety. Has anyone seen any similar Francottes or are aware of why this gun could have been ordered this way?

Re: 16ga. Sidelock. Wtb Daryl Hallquist 06/17/24 02:24 PM
I saw your request for a 16 gauge sidelock. As for sidelocks, I have a highest quality Lajot, a gunmaker of distinction. It has 28" barrels , invisible welded seam sleeved by John Foster [and gunman on the DGS board]. $3700 plus freight
Not sidelocks, but guns of highest [best] quality are--

Charles Daly, 16 ga, highest engraving coverage, boxlock. Fluid steel. $4000 plus postage

Hoffman Arms, 20 ga., boxlock [England sourced] , highest quality engraving by Rudolph Kornbrath, top condition, cast on for a lefty. Gold animals. The best found. 1924 manufacture. $7200 plus shipping.

Greener, Monarch Imperial , 16 gauge, [70 Guinea gun] , boxlock. Fully engraved with gold crown and scepter indicating the Imperial Grade, Whitworth barrels. $7900 plus shipping

If any of these sound interesting , email me at darylh1942@gmail.com.

Re: Sauer Nr 256027 TaubenFlinten Modell29C-Odd Forend ellenbr 06/17/24 02:15 PM
I have blamed Franz Adamy, possibly incorrectly, for applying the >>F.A.<< as he may have just been a business partner of Albert Adamy. So there are a few other F.A. mechanics with
Franz Amthor leading the pack.

Fritz Albrecht of Albrechts but I think he & his son Rudolf were more into scope mounts & sights.

Franz AnschĂĽtz, Fritz AnschĂĽtz, both of Suhl and knowing Franz Adamy was the owner of Undo AnschĂĽtz, then there may have been sourcing along family lines????


On another note, August Heinrich Ansorg of Z-M & Otto AnschĂĽtz of Z-M were both barrel drawers or tube mechanics.

Re: OT Boy's Life Magazine Lloyd3 06/17/24 02:11 PM
My brother was in Cub Scouts (our mother was a Den Mother for a few years) and while I never was a Scout (cub or boy), I did get the magazine. It was everything that has been described here and I really looked forward to it each month. My visions of what the American West might be were formed in the late 1960s from reading that magazine and it clearly contributed to my move "out-west" (to experience first-hand the great hunting & fishing described therein) when I graduated from College. My son was also a Cub & Boy Scout, but... by then the non-traditional (leftist) assault on Scouting had already begun. His trips to Yellowstone and even SeaBase as a Scout weren't nearly as exciting as what had been the experience just a few years earlier. When girls were added to the program, he and several other scout friends of his quit scouting permanently. We were disappointed (an Eagle was still in reach for him) but...given the circumstances at the time we accepted his decision (there were other things going on then too, an openly-gay scouting assistant had just committed suicide).

Interesting piece, a post WWII economy shotgun, haven't seen this before.
Seems to have a safety lever and a cocking lever on the tang.

Re: Bump Stock Ban.........OT ksauers1 06/17/24 01:23 PM
I agree. Why do you think the only solution ,according to commiecrats, is gun control. They have a one track mind. Why does anyone logically believe taking the rights and guns away from law abiding citizens would change a thing? Some of the Commiecrats want total control over the citizens, they rest are the feel good types who walk around with their hands over their hearts when they’re not patting themselves on the back. Look at me. Ain’t I a wonderful person. The whole party is evil or useful pawns for the evil

If you do want to reverse the triggers, you might call Cole Gunsmithing. Rich is more than familiar with double triggers in Italian guns and is a factory warranty center for B. Rizzini guns.
