Know a fella with a 8 bore SxS. It shot quite well, but he learned a painful lesson one day: don't cock both hammers before shooting. It was several weeks before he had full range of motion in his right shoulder...the rifle landed in soft sand about 15' behind him w/o damage.


I am..........disturbed.

Only "big bores" I own, by definition of diameter are a .45-70 and a .444 Marlin.

I have a .375 Weatherby, which I think, is a medium that THINKS it's a big bore.

Also have a Model 70 Classic in .300 Roy awaiting its transformation into a .470 Capstick………….just in case I ever find myself in jackrabbit country...…...

Squirrels are pretty vicious...or so I've heard.

I'm sure Irfubar will tell you but I'll chime in and say it's an American Akita, the American version of the Japanese Akita. Akita's are the most loyal of all dog breeds.

They can also be he most cat-like, willful, and stubborn but it's the only breed I will always have.

I like leverguns. The 45/70, 450 Marlin. They send 'em fast or slow, flat reciever slips on and out of a saddle scabbard. Shoots a rainbow....just follow the trajectory for your pot of gold. The .450 Marlin is underrated =
458×2. It would be nice in an expensive European double.

Brain shot is the only way to stop a charging squirrel....or take away its credit card.

I am afraid this will be a disappointment. This is a 6 bore offered by Dixie Gun Works back around 1970. it had a full lenght stock with military like bands. I cut the stock down. I also converted it from flint lock to percussion. I dont know what load I used, but; the first shot knocked me off my feet and flat on my back. I guess at 150 pounds and 6 foot, I went over pretty easy. I gained a lot of body mass and find 200 grain loads with round balls reasonable. I think in the field probably 300 grains more effective at both ends. Pics from the 1971 catalog. The gun was sold without sights. I made up sights for it. I had not fired this in many decades. I took it out a few weeks ago to get re-acquainted. Dixie sold a round ball mold, which I got.

Edit: I think Gunner may have me mixed up with a seller/collector down in Conn.

Both dog and rifle have a very business-like attitude about them.

Nice!
