Our little gathering in June, the Upper Canada Double Gun Classic, produced a W W Greener 4 bore hammerless with 34" barrels (if I remember correctly). We had a scale, so weighed it. Just a hair under 18 pounds. So light and lively in hand! laugh

According to the David McKay Brown book by Donal Dallas, they made one heavy 12 ga RA for steel loads. I happen to know it weighs 8 lbs and is a beauty.

Punt gun.

Certainly not. An engraved Sneider sidelock hammerless double. Undoubtably for a member of Baltimore's well-heeled that "shot the bar" with their big 4-gauges at the Carroll's Island Ducking Club. See C. John Sullivan Jr.'s book Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Decoys & Long Guns, Tales of the Carroll's Island Ducking Club.

Ok, maybe a "semi-punt" then. But I would argue that a 28 1/2 lb. 4 gauge with 38" barrels is unwieldable for wingshooting.

Be strong, be of good courage.

The guys in the UK that shoot the big bores often have a kind of stick with a yoke to support their mega shotguns. Always reminded me of artillery pieces.
Shooting geese in the twilight with essentially shoulder fired cannons, seemed a hoot. Fire blazing 10 feet up from the barrels with every shot in the increasing darkness.


Out there doing it best I can.

Wow at that greener! It even has the sweet side safety on it. I bet that would be a treat to shoot
