We're but keepers of these classic American doubles for the future generation...

Wonderful picture. Good to be alive during the Fall!

I have a 121 year old GH 12ga. 1896 ser.#84xxx, that still puts down a bird now and then. Mine is a little more faded, but overall in great shape.

It's not exactly an ideal upland gun being a 2 frame GH with 30" barrels choked FULL/FULL, but I seem to do halfway decent with the 7 1/2 RST spreaders.

not exactly ideal, seems like kind of an understatement. More of a turkey gun
