Opening day for sharptails out west….rained out for most of the day, weather cleared this afternoon, and the evening walk was productive. I used a W.W. Greener F35 circa 1920 that I recently finished, a ground up restoration. The gun is actually a waterfowl gun, but….I couldn’t resist taking it out today.😀

Brent,
Those items in the chambers that Ted thinks are snap caps appear to be some of the all plastic cases of the old Alcan shells. Are they?

They are ACTIV hulls. They have a really large capacity, which helps a lot with blackpowder.

Ted was, as always, just fishing for something critical to say.

Having just returned from 4 days of hunting, I can post a few pictures. For reference, Gus turned 5200 days old on this trip. (I'm a bit older. )

They are FAIR/Rizzinis, 28 and 16 gauge with 30” barrels. Both performed really well on the prairie. I started out with a beautiful older Webley & Scott and couldn’t find the rhythm with it, so out came the slower swinging Rizzini guns. I shot a goodly amount of super-sporting and 5-stand last summer with the two, so no doubt that played into it. We were out in big sky country. ; )
