I was hoping someone else would say it so I wouldn't have to..double guns with those long barrels look really funny! I like 28" barrels; they just look like a double gun oughta. Plus, trying to get those 30 or 32" barrels out of a pickup in a hurry without wrapping the barrels around the door frame is more than I'm capable of. So you clay shooters (of which I'm not one) can have 'em!

Ok. On the set I described above these are the point of balance.
Lefever on top
LC Smith on the bottom
Note the change in the balance point as related to the forends.

Fin come out and say it. They are really hard to get them out the window when your shooting those western Kansas roosters from the pickup truck.

Nah; when I do that I usually just ride in the bed and shoot over the cab.

Thanks for the photo, Dr. Bob. Clearly the LC has a farther forward CG. That will put more of the weight in the front hand, which most people interpert as barrel heavy/weight forward/etc. The closer one hand is to the CG than the other hand, the higher the % of the guns total weight it will support. So, you can see that balance loction, along with individual front hand location, determines the weight distribution into the two hands. Most people will judge a gun as heavier than it really is if the weight distribution into the hands is not to their liking. On the other hand (pun intended), they will judge a gun as lighter than it really is when the weight distribution is to their liking. There is no such thing as "perfect balance" any more than there is "perfect LOP."
