My go-to gun is very unique. It is an E. Harrison (predecessor company that joined Cogswell to become Cogswell & Harrison, for those of you that know English guns), 12 bore, round action, assisted opening, boxlock ejector. That's right. Round action, assisted opening, boxlock. There are some out there, but rare, and usually quite expensive. I got mine for a song. ;)

I'll post pics when I get a chance.

My passion is duck hunting. I have been known to shoot dove, turkey, quite a few skeet, and just about anything that flies. Including squirrels. My go to shotgun is both a Browning Cynergy Mossy Oak Shadow Grass and her sister the Sporting Composite w/ Adjustable Comb.


These teal were taken very close to home. My son and I love to hunt the Laguna Madre also. Red Heads, Pintails, Mergansers, Buffel Head,and Widgeon dominate the open waters while Teal, Spoonies, Black Malards and Gadwall prevail in tidal pools and ponds.


Every once and a while this baby gets called out into the skeet/trap fields. Especially when there is a competition! She is a Caesar Guerini Ellipse EVOlution in 12 ga.


The engraving is phenomenal and she swings like no other.

Benelli Nova.

I've always considered shotguns a pretty utilitarian tool, although I love Parkers. I'm really liking skipper's Browning Cynergy Mossy Oak Shadow Grass. One of those may have to find it's way into the boat this fall.

For doves, crows, and squirrel: Fox Model B-ST SXS 12 ga with choke tubes.

Duck, geese, turkey, 'yotes: Rem 870 3" 12 ga, ported turkey choke.

Skeet, bunnies, grouse: CZ-Huglu O/U 28 ga. The 28 ga has become my favourite shotgun. :D
