It's a pretty one. I have a sentimental attachment to the Belgian Auto Five, that was dad's favorite shotgun. Dad liked the Sweet Sixteen for his quail, dove and rabbit hunting. He had a Light Twelve also. I watched dad pinwheel a running 8 point buck with a slug from that Lt. 12 as a wide eyed kid and been in love with the guns ever since.

Looks like two Missouri limits. We sure had a ton of squirrels in the Ozarks the last several years.

Anschutz rimfires are darn hard to beat, even though I'm a Kimber and Sako rimfire lover.

Great photo's Hos. .........and more Anschutz's. LOL!

I'll have to pm you a funny story about my former Squirrel Hunting buddy, an Anschutz and a Kleingunther K22 (where my web name came from).

We got home late this afternoon and there was about an hour of daylight left, so I hit the woods looking for squirrels. Found one about 4:45, and did something very special to me; this old Stevens Model 94 16 gauge was my Dad's first gun, bought sometime in the 1950's. After my parents married, the old Stevens was left with my grandfather, and stayed there until he died, then it became MY first firearm! I moved on to fancier stuff, and the Stevens stayed over at mom and dads place, across the field from our house, just a few hundred yards away. After pop died in December of 2012, I brought it home and it has sat on the gun rack unused. Until this afternoon. The first squirrel that I have shot with it since I was a teenager. I'm 54 years old, so it's been close to 36 years since the little Stevens has dropped a squirrel. It was dark by the time I got back to the house, so I took this picture in the barn, where there are lights. My maternal grandfather, who died young at 47 years old in 1954 and 11 years before I was born, built the barn in 1934-1935. I've had to do some repairs over the years, but the old barn is still in pretty good shape, like the old Stevens single shot. Pawpaw Ne carved his initials into the stock, A.E.N.

Twenty or Sweet? Love the picture!



Thank you. I thought it was a pretty good representation of a bygone era.

1965 Light Twelve



BTW - I took that gun out of the box in 2018 which it had been in since 1965.

It was cold and a bit breezy, but I hadn't been hunting since prior to my November knee surgery, so the little Franchi 28ga and I took a little woods walk this evening. Actually, it was more of a woods "hobble" since I'm still on a crutch, but we managed to find one willing participant foraging for his evening meal.

Very good! Had my knee replaced in 2018. It only gets better from there.

I shoot 12 ga Remington #5’s exclusively. They market them as Pheasant Loads now. I buy them a case at a time.

After hunting with all available gauges I discovered that it took the shot charge of a 12 ga to penetrate the Fall foliage in the East Texas pines. Many of those are 80' tall.

Winchester makes a what I suppose is a similar load and called a pheasant load. 1 1/4 oz shot at 1220fps mv. Exactly matches my old handload for squirrels, ducks, when lead was still legal, and as a general all around load when woods roaming. A little heavy on doves but I have used them for that.
