We do!
Actually the one we have was my Dad's so we're kind of acttached to it. Don't know what Model it is, but its a plain barreled modified choke, checkered wood. He use it for years as a bird gun and deer hunting in upstate NY. No rifles where we lived.

Bob,
My first shotgun was a double barrel 20 gauge. Santa brought it to me. I was 12.

I traded that gun in for a Winchester Model 50 a few years later. I still have it. I bet it's has ~1000 rounds thru it. It's seen bad weather. It's been dropped in the mud. It has patina. :D I don't remember it ever misfiring or jamming.

Bob,
I know this is a shotgun thread. :D

I guess that it was about the time that I bought my Winchester Model 94 lever rifles as a primary hunting (deer in GA) weapon and then when I got interested in the old design.

I know the modern stuff is better. I still prefer the older design. ;)

:D


Sorry, but to me the Winchester Model of 1894 is good. And like the Winchester 50; this category is currently priced well below the replacement market.

I am proud to have two 94's and a 50.

for almost 60 years old, they are solid guns.

My dad gave me his way back when. When I was a lad back in 1959 or 1960 I used to accompany him hunting. I still have it and use it at my clubs Turkey Shoots. It's helped me bring home the turkey more than once. Way too heavy to lug around in the field, (all those darn steel parts!). It's one well made shotgun, They don't ( and can't afford) to make them like that anymore!

Same with the Browning Superposed - they made thousands of them, but only one in the proper gauge. It is in the Herstal museum in Belgium.
I do admit to being a bit prejudiced in this respect...:D
