I would have used the Boss if I owned one. I would prefer a 16 bore, one of those great old 24" jobs that used to show up years ago. They were ribless, very light, easy to handle when you had to support them by the muzzle. Of course, a double trigger is preferred since there is no chance for a second shot with a single trigger. The 24" barrels are a real help when you have to handle the triggers with the muzzles.... well, you know.

Sorry gentlemen: I've been reorganizing the PictureTrail albums and ALL the Trevallion BoWhoop stuff is together on the 'Trevallion Trivia and Technicana' album

So far, no C & D documents have found their way to the desert, so here they are again:
Becker No 1 for Nash Buckingham, 'Super Fox' HE lost January 1948. http://www.owaa.org/legends/legendNashBuckingham.htm "Nash had blinded up in a dense thicket of willows along the edge of a clear channel some 150 yards from my own (Col. H.P. Sheldon) stand. A pair of mallards traveling high and in hurry went over Nash. Both collapsed and after a moment of complete silence the double boom of the big gun came rolling roundly over the marshes. It sounded exactly like two solo notes from the bass horn in a symphony orchestra, and I mentioned it to Nash when we got back to the lodge. Bo Whoop, Bo Whoop." http://www.beaverdamnorth.com/bdnhc.htm http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/print?id=1940482&type=story



32" barrels and unloaded weight of 10#. Straight grip stock with 14 1/2" LOP, 2 1/4" drop at heel and 1 9/16" at comb.





Becker No 2 HE 12 Magnum



David Trevallion: "I was told this is one of the last photos of Nash Buckingham with 'Bo Whoop # 2'. Now in Memphis Tenn..."

I read the definitive Hemingway Biography thirty years back, I could have sworn he ate a 20 Ga. Boss ?


Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear.
