This is my boomstick!

Well, how about a picture thread devoted to SxS doubles? They can be a lot of fun. I'll get us start with a pick I took this morning:

BoomSticks2.jpg

Left to right:

Stevens 511 Series A, 12-gauge (2¾ and 3"): I bought this one many moons ago from a gunshop in Longview for next to nothing. It has quite possibly the ugliest wood I've ever seen on a shotgun, the triggers are "meh", and it has fixed chokes. But it just works, so it has been kept over the years as sort of "beater" scattergun.

Zabala Hermanos, .410-bore (2½ and 3"): I picked this one up for the dispatching of small pests. It is light weight, there is really no recoil, and it too just works. Someday, I plan to give it to my son.

Baikal SBS, 12-gauge (2¾" only): This curiously short fellow started life as a Baikal SxS Coach Gun. I added a recoil pad. After a Form 1 was approved by our federal friends, it was modified into a SBS with 11" barrels. It is very light and handy. I've had good results with the stubby, NobelSport 00-buck mini-shells (2¼").

How about you?

Thanks, I've shot many a turkey with that shotgun. Never had one escape the old side by side. I can't say that about any other shotgun I have. This one has a lot of sentimental value, though, as it belonged to my great grandfather who shot left handed, as I do. It fits me like a glove and swings nice, even though it has 30" barrels. Great for upland game bird hunting too. There's just something peaceful about using this old gun....
