  1. General Firearms Discussion
    I’m a 16 year old that has just started hunting and shooting this year. I was raised in a very anti gun house hold. I’ve been working towards buying my own gun for almost a year just trying to gain the trust of my parents to allow me to buy one. I have took a hunter safety class, shooting...

    Just wondering if I could get which model of shotgun this is and if it is worth it to get it back in working shape, my late father said it did still shoot when taped together but it looks like it missing some parts for the auto ejection and the for-end stock is broken
  3. Technical Questions & Information
    Hi everyone, I recently purchased a Black Aces Pro Series X Pump Action Shotgun (12 gauge) and I absolutely love it. However, I was in the woods and the forward pin "walked out" and I could not find it. I have reached out to black aces for parts, but it is kind of a pain as their website does...
  4. Technical Questions & Information
    So I just acquired a JTS M12AK 12 GA shotgun, the (plug?) in the gas tube has one of the walls snapped clean off, replacement parts don’t exist for this gun and I want to know if it’s safe to use and or how to repair it, or wether I bought a big paperweight. Thanks

    I am a newbie (first fired it today). I have a question about storing the gun and keeping it (nearly) ready for an emergency - home defense. (1) I have been told that I should not store it with the trigger cocked, so I bought a snap cap. (2) If I put a snapcap in through the breach and load...

    My 1st game went great. Got a 25 straight. Then they switched over to the white clays and it was too soon. This old guy couldn't see them at all with the light sky background. One of our teammates is 77 years old and he was shooting in the blind. He got an 11 on that round. I was able to get 18...

    Hello. I recently purchased a beat-up but functioning shotgun for $20. It's a 16 gauge break action with the name "Volunteer Gun Co." on the side of the frame. Volunteer was a trade name used by Belknap Hardware. Guns under this trade name were made by Crescent, H&R, Iver Johnson, and Stevens. I...

    My Dad has had this old shotgun for about 60 years. It is a muzzle loader. We used to shoot it when I was a kid (I'm 67 now). He hasn't shot it in years, but he does keep it in good shape. There are no marks on it but the initials PB on the underside of the barrel, underneath the hand stock...

    Hey everyone! I have no idea what my shotgun is worth. I bought it new a bunch of years ago and don't remember what I paid for it. I used it for trap shooting, went shooting maybe 4-5 times (200 shells at the most) and the gun has been sitting in the case ever since. Take a look at the photos...

    Very confusing topic but it seemed like a fun discussion for me to start off with:) I have an Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works single shot 12ga that i am trying to put a date on..I would dare to call it a "Top Snap single gun" It has a serial number of J13948. Using the Goforth formula, having...
  14. Large-Bore/Small-Bore Rifle/Shotgun
    Very obscure and not well know wildcat, but I'm convinced it is one of the most versatile cartridges ever created. Let me explain. Essentially you convert a 12 gauge slug gun into a big bore rifle. You do this by using a very slow rifle powder (to keep pressure low) and brass 12 gauge hulls...

    I've recently acquired another double gun. It's an Edwinson Green, 12 gauge sidelock. It has ejectors and a single trigger which I find unusual for that age gun. The chokes are IC and M. It came with the original case, and is SN 6229. It still fires great with a tight action, only damage is a...

    This was my 12th or 13th birthday present, so assuming it was purchased new (which I believe it was), we're looking at 1987-ish. I used it quite often and remember it to be very comfortable - light carry weight and minimal recoil. Of course, since I was the one humping it through the woods...
