Default DE Fox and ducks

Slow duck season so far but I have scratch down a couple every day with my DE Fox 12ga 30" with .040 chokes in both barrels.

Can't beat that combination of color and texture -- man made and natural. Sitting in a duck blind can be a restorative time. Thanks for sharing your hunt.

One of, if not the, most beautiful of the Fox grades. You do it justice my friend. Cold weather is on it's way so I'm sure things will pick up. In the mean time just keep those great pics coming. Still shooting Boss shells?

Boss fiber wad 1 1/4oz #5's. Picture of my assigned blind yesterday, pretty spot but it's been difficult with no wind.

Tell us more about that beautiful Fox shotgun! Do you have a letter on it you can post? How long have you had it? Where did you get it from? Etc.

Here is a copy of the factory build card. I bought the gun from Cash America Pawn in San Antonio TX, really I did!

Wow, I never find anything good at pawn shops. Used belt sanders…

Did you get it dirt cheap, at a pawn shop price? Maybe the story gets even better!

How long ago did you acquire it?

I bought it in 2020. Cash America is a very large chain of Pawn shops. They employ a firearms specialist so I did not steal the gun but paid a very fair price. I assisted them valuing a collection of SxS's so they were appreciative of my assistance.
