Default Sporting Classics article

There’s an article on shooting, hunting with and evaluating Damascus-barreled shotguns in the Sept/Oct issue of Sporting Classics that might raise eyebrows amongst modern day gents who are vague on them. Shawn Wayment and Lars Jacob are mentioned as proponents, as is the author Tom Keer. Curiously the words “low-compression shells” are used several times and while we all know what that means it’s the first time I read/heard that specific term. Also it’s the first such article I’ve seen in a regular sporting mag.

I'd like to read it but I don't subscribe to Sporting Classics.

Newly written content of the mag is of course copyrighted. I’ve subscribed for many years but I’m pretty sure SC is sold over the counter at the larger book places. SC is the only sporting mag I can think of offhand that does a booth at the Southern SxS.

They had a great article about Doug Turnbull restoring a DH in a recent issue.

Sporting Classics also offers a "Sporting Classics Daily" email that generally has excerpted articles and other features. It's free for the sign-up. I would venture that the article(s) in question will appear eventually.

When the magazine first started up in the late 1980's, I took advantage of their promo offer of $150 for a lifetime subscription, plus a Lynn Bouge Hunt print. So far then I am into it for less than $5/yr. I always stop at their booth at the Southern and remind them that I am one of those lifetime prescribers and will probably outlive the magazine.
Dean, I'll save my copy for you.
