Default Charlie Hunters Big Gun returns to the Old Dominion

Mr. Hall and I drove up to Easton MD today to pick up the 8 gauge I bought in their auction last week . Got up there before the pre arranged time but the auction company was very accommodating and quick . We then visited Albrightís looked around a bit then crossed the street to the Tidewater Inn for lunch . After lunch we shot Schraders . Very nice place ! Took awhile to get home but allís well . Cleaned up most of the surface rust on the old gun and put on some metal protectant . The gun seems ready to go now !

Craig, Looks like you’ll be having some fun with that! Is it built on a 7 frame? What does it weigh in at?

I'd want a man servant to haul that gun out to the duck blind for me. That gun would be a lot of fun in the turkey woods if it's legal in your state.

I guess I'm glad 8s are not legal in Missouri. With the nice 8s I've seen come up for sale lately, I console myself that I'm saving money.

Craig, I'm sure you'll put that nice gun to good use. Pictures forthcoming I assume.

I make it a rule not to shoot guns that are bigger than me. Congrats on a great find.

Very nice looking gun. 16 pounds has to put it in the heaviest heavy weight class. Congratulations and no need to renew your gym membership, just carry that beast around the shop for 30 minutes a day.
