The more I think about it, the original owner spent a lot of time in central Ontario ruffed grouse country, along the shores of Lake Huron. He hunted deer as well. Waterfowl and prairie upland like sharptail and pheasant, not so much. I'm guessing he fell prey to the idea that to hunt the grouse woods, one must have a short barreled gun.

The world cries out for such: he is needed & needed badly- the man who can carry a message to Garcia
