    I have posted this on a similar thread about single shots, I am just fascinated with all of the different actions that have been used to breech a single round. I collect them and like the more oddball types as long as they were well made and shootable. By far the majority of game that doesn’t fly I have taken with single shots because I just prefer using the many types I have. When I was younger I did a lot of game bird and waterfowl hunting and started using semi auto and pump actions and then went on to using mostly double shotguns for hunting.
    At this stage of my life I have slowed down to mostly hunting deer and varmints and single shots are what I use.

    My wife calls me OnRee for a reason.
    Spell check doesn't work in Chrome, so if something is spelled wrong, it's just a typo that I missed.

    Mostly like them because of the simplicity. Started hunting with a old single-shot Savage Stevens 410 back in the 70s. Just kind of stuck with me. Second thing is like those adapters that you can buy I'm pretty sure you've got to have some kind of take down supposedly to work I don't think I can put them in a pump. Third I like hunting with a single shot mostly because I figure if I miss it gives the animal a chance to get away. Just makes it a little more critical that I get the shot off right the first time

    Single shots for doing-it-the-old-way simple fun challenge; semi and full auto for deadly serious "fun".
    The only government I trust is the .45-70 ....
