Hello, SXS bird hunter from the USA

Recommended Posts

Hello,  I like SxS, O/U, drilling’s  but we don’t really have a big following for them in the states. So I thought I would pop in to see what you guys are chatting about.  I will try my best to fit in.

Welcome, it seems the only real following for SxS in US is The Vintage Gunners and similar. shame because there are some great value English guns available at present.

Welcome bud. 👍 A cracking looking old Landie and a proper gun, not one of these new fangled uppy over things. I am sure you will find something of interest on here albeit the natives squabble amongst ourselves now and again !

Yea if it’s not black and plastic and holds at least 8 shells nobody wants it here.  But there is something breaking a SxS open that makes me smile.  Eventually I want a Drillings but they are very rare here.  When you do find them they are chambered in something that you can’t buy ammo for.  I did get two of the Remington Spartans before our government banned them here.  I have the 12g over .223 and 12g over .308.

Sxs .flatcap and a old landrover .

U sure your not in Yorkshire  ? 

I have always liked English stuff.  

Apparent my family left England in late 1600s. They sold land in a place called Aberkinrigg and Slough but I have not found it on the maps.

That’s funny because on most American forums somone would have been called a retard by the 10th post on any given subject.

There is a Aberkinfig in Wales near Bridgend, but no Aberkinrigg showing on Google Maps.

 

:welcomeani:

I was told it was in Wales.  But your right it doesn’t show up on maps.

Youre not wrong there !
When Ive been reading through them, its apparent there are some very rude opinionated people when it comes to American firearm forums.

British forum- 'I think you may be mistaken Sir'
US forum   - 'Are you some kind of goddamn imbecile ?'

Everyone loves the rover!  It draws a crowd every where it goes.  I restored a chevelle and SS impala and when I go to car shows I get more interest in the Landy Rover hands down.  The rover is a money pit as they are terribly expensive over here and break down if you look at it wrong but it’s a love hate thing.  I will die with my LandRover.  But yes LandRover  people would tear me apart as I have tried to make it more reliable but swapping out the original equipment.  The engine is a 4.2 Perkins out of a Massy Ferguson Tractor. I converted the breaks to power with a Ford F-250 kit.  The heater valves a Chevy.  But I new LandRover parts are high and break within a few months as most of are LandRover parts are made in Asia.

Lol.  We are firmly rooted Americans now.  

All my cars have something in common.

It cant be a proper landy, it has no mud on it.
