Default 20 bore Bernardelli hammer gun

I'm still concentrating on grouse in the mountains and despite plans otherwise I had to hunt solo today. My friend texted while driving out to the cabin; called in to work. A few weeks ago I found a 1967 V. Bernardelli "Brescia" model 20 bore hammer gun that was apparently unfired since new. I hadn't a chance to try it for clays beforehand, and this was, I believe, her first shot since leaving the factory over 55 years ago. Choked IC and I-Mod per my Baker bore mike (barrels are stamped IC & Mod), and a Federal 7-1/2 shot Field load did the trick.

Being alone I stayed close to the road and hunted wintergreen berry patches in a favorite cover; second pic shows berries from the crop on top of a gray colored rock.
