I have inherited my Grandfather's LC Smith 20ga FeatherWeight SxS he bought in 1947 after he came back from the war. The stories of "We used to sit on the hood of the car and shoot Pheasants as they flushed from gravel roads in South Dakota" are amusing!
I've had a small stock crack professionally fixed, checkering re-cut (it was worn smooth), stock refinished, and the chambers opened up to a true 2 3/4" (the gun is marked 20ga 2 3/4", but the chambers measured short).
SO, on to my quesiton:
when the gunsmith who opened the chambers inspected the gun, he said to me it is a good gun for hunting but suggested I not shoot 'a ton of clays' with it, as the old guns are just not made to take this kind of use.
I'm curious, what kind of use can I realistically give this gun if I want to shoot a few rounds of clays with it every now and then. I shot a 100 round of clays with it today and had a lot of fun. Enjoyed it, but don't want to abuse the girl.
