Pics are easy. This is for my iPad

Click the blue folder marked “Choose images”

That should open up a link to your computer photo album

Choose the pic you want to add. Click on it

In the upper right hand corner, click the blue “Add”

It’ll bring you to a screen with a bunch of options with codes. You want
“Hotlink for forums”. On the right there’s a clipboard. Click on it and it’ll copy the link

Bring the link here and paste it in the text reply box.
Preview the reply and your pic should be there. If it is, hit Post Reply and you’re done.

Thanks to all. I've tried all those about over and over and over. I think it was a problem with my antivirus or my home firewall. Maybe, this time it will work.
L2S, Oh, that we could have sat before a mopane fire and swapped lies. What a trip that would have been!

The top one is what I call my Leopard Gun. She has been there and done it. The stock was broken between the wrist and action sometime in the past. I have no story on that. There is a small spot of a finger print of blood rust on the barrel, again no story, but I imagine many different scenarios for both. The stock is refinished, somewhat less than professionally, probably after the stock broke. Those all add to her, for me. It also has a little thingy on the extractor that lets me use rimless cases if need be. I have found she does not like sleet, snow and freezing rain. That freezing water gets inside the action and the action does not work when its full of ice. If I could have only one gun, this would be the one I would have!

The second one is my Meffert Hubertus. She is 8x57JR and 16 dural drilling, with a 22 mag insert in the right barrel. I have a Lee die to squeeze down bullets to 318. She was my fair weather bird gun back in PA. Here in Virginia, I only have woodcock and those I can't use a darn Greener safety for quick shots, so its a deer, turkey squirrel gun.

The bottom one is my Sauer Lux 7x57R and 16 drilling. It has a 5.6x50R full length insert in the right barrel. While the engraving is lovely, it's a serious hunting gun, so the wood and metal both show use. I have the 5.6 shooting to the same point as my 139 grain 7x57 at 100 yards, and a cast load for the 5.6 to the sights at 50 yards. A very versatile gun, that i wish was in 8x57.
Here are photos of some of my 8x57 rounds I noticed that i didn't include my 200 grain partition load. And then some of my stash of 8 mm bullets.

What's yours?


I haven't owned a combination gun in a long time. When I did, my favorite was an exposed hammer SxS 12 gauge x .30-40 Krag. Wish I still had that one. frown

I'll bet that was a dandy big game rig in it's day.


After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Awesome photos BlackFly1! I only have one combo a German cape gun in 20gauge over 6.5x52r (25-35 win). Luv2Safari has been complicit in helping me get it set up and was kind enough to sell me a nice 4x Zeiss scope with rail that I am proud to have done a bunch of work plugging old mounting holes in the rail and getting it fitted to a set of claw mounts that I hand fit to the gun. The shotgun is very tightly choked but stupid accurate with the iron sights (perfectly regulated), same with the rifle barrel. I am load a 110 grain Hornady FTX over 26.5 grains of CFE 223 for around 2350fps. Excited to take a deer with it, going to keep shots within 100 yards. I need to find a suitable coyote load for the 20 gauge that won’t blow me up. I don’t reload shotgun shells so I am at a disadvantage.

Probably was. I don't know much about its history before I "bought" (inherited) it. Unfortunately for me, my dad more or less twisted my arm causing me to sell a good many things I'd gotten from my mom's dad's estate before I got to figure out what they were used for. That's the "joy" of being 13 with a father who is a self-proclaimed expert on everything. If it wasn't an '06 like his it wasn't worth owning and I wasn't old enough to know any better or put up any sort of fight-back. Lot of neat stuff went by the wayside.
