  2. thousands of fine guns for sale and shoot this weekend at the Southern SXS Many more gunmakers from UK came this year. Toby from Heratidge guns UK was here again with a wonderful selection of great guns I will add pictures as i resize them down. the one below is a seller from Mississippi Steve Barnet brought over a hundred outstanding guns Purdeys,H&H Rigby ect. I picked up a Chamber brush for my 8 bore. I was speaking with British Author Donald Dallas and he was quite impressed with the amount of guns and gear. There were 5 very long tents packed with vendors
  3. The Spring Classic.docx Large SXS shooting event this week in North Carolina USA. Many vendors shooting related items, Artwork, Safari trips, booksellers, and of-coarse shooting competitions in every gauge and and black powder guns also. There is a hotly contested competition between Parker brothers collectors and the LC Smith collectors. Many displays of fine SXS shotguns. One of the premier SXS events in the US.
  4. Figgy is correct. Choke the gun for the type of shooting. Missing Targets missed because of over choked guns will NEVER improve your shooting, .Only practice and technique improvment will. If the gun must be used for different types of shooting put screw in choke or chokes. Jmho.
  5. My post on this subject has some incorrect information.. The Flues was meant to fire 2 !/5 inch Ammo and chambers were 2 5/8 inches to allow the expansion of the rolled crimp.. The gun was intended for low pressure ammo of the era and modern 2 1/5 inch exceeds the proof of the time. In The US low pressure 2 1/5 ammo is available and commonly used in classic old double guns.. The shotgun that replaced the Flues is the NID and that gun can handle higher pressure loads. The Flues action can crack through if modern CIP proofed loads are used
  6. Your Flues will have 2 7/8 inch chambers if not altered. Chamber length can be measured with a steel rule, Or better with a chamber Gage. One can be made from a round wooden dowel turned down to loosely fit the diameter of chamber and marked at. 2 7/8 and 3 inch and 3 1/2 . Cerro safe not the best choice for shotgun chamber . It is fantastic for rifles in doubt of clambering. But a waste for shotguns.
  7. There is a decoy carvers show near me happening this weekend . I am taking a group of Wildfowling guns that date from the mid 1800s (Enos James 8 bore) to a modern 12 bore Winchester . I am still looking for a 4 bore to add to my collection . Its always fun to talk to folks at the show .
