Default Elmer Fudd's Shotgun?

Does anyone know what kind of double shootgun old Elmer used? He doesn't look affulent enough for a Winchester 21 so I am thinking maybe a Stevens 311? I am also thinking 16ga. It would be excellent for wabbits. Not that he ever shot one....

Nope. It came from Acme Shotgun Company. He borrowed it from Wile E. Coyote.

Actually Winchester did make it but it was marketed through the Acme Shotgun Co. Much like the Monty Wards shotgun I just wrote to the forum about that is actually a Stevens.
Elmer's shotgun is in the NRA exhibit of famous movie guns. In fact the curator let me handle it. It's still in good shape.

Odd. When I asked to see it he wouldn't let me touch it. When he turned away and I tried to sneak it out of the case an anvil fell on my head.

Never put a shotgun barrel down a rabbit hole. Rabbits are known to grab the barrel and tie it in a knot. This will cause the gun to blow up in your face and coat your face with powder.

Best Lounge thread in a long time. Well done.

I tried to get to look at the Fudd Gun last time I was at the NRA Museum. Sadly, Jim Supica had it with the traveling Movie Gun display. Maybe next time. I heard the stock had been cut to fit Fudd's smaller stature.

Elmer cut the stock real short to carry under his coat and called it a "Rippit". He could "rip it out" fast. But when he said it, and he is Elmer fudd after all, it came out "Whippit". That's where the term came from for cut down shotguns as used by Clyde Barrow and Porter Rockwell.

If you notice in the earliest cartoon made by Elmer's predecessor in the cartoon "All This and Rabbit Stew", the style of stock is definitely a style similar to earlier Crescent shotguns. Acme was a special label by Crescent Shotgun Company, which was later sold to Stevens.

A very valuable piece.

I also got to handle Yosemite Sam's matched pair of sixguns. Technically they aren't sixguns because they shoot forever without loading.

It must be. It shoots, by my count, 89 times in 3 minutes without reloading.

He might not look affluent, but dedicated watchers may remember that he was a "millionaire," and he owned "a mansion and a yacht."

He toted a Purdy.

Default Google Elmer Fudd "images"

Elmer has two guns, one is a single barrel with a full stock and blade front sight, possibly a rifle. His other gun looks like a SxS shotgun. Most time he carries the single barrel gun.

Obviously fired black powder shells, 'cause when Bugs would stick his finger in the barrel and blow it up, Elmer's face and hat had way too much soot on them for smokeless loads . . . . or when he would bend the barrels in a "U" shape and shoot himself in the face . . . yep, charcoal burner . . . .

Elmer had several shotguns , many custom made. Like that double-barreled pump he goes after Daffy Duck with.

This was the beginning of a commercial loading operation of special op shells....originally called 'Fudds Duds'....engineered to blow up just properly without creasing his hat.

First in 10 and 12 gauge, later in smaller all the way down to 410 and 28s for the true purist who would accept no substitutes ....known to enthusiasts as "Fuddy's Duddies"

Even today old collectors of this kind of thing remain known by this name

Supposedly a New Ithaca Double (they were well regarded in years past) was at point the "model". Read that somewhere years ago. It might even be true. Shrug.

If you notice the size of the pellets that Elmer had flying, he seemed to almost always be using buckshot. Of course since he was chasing a talking, and sometimes cross dressing, rabbit that was taller than he was, I suppose that was for the best.

In reality, Elmer simply had a terrible Absinthe habit that he'd picked up in the trenches during Dubya Dubya Wun. This also lead to his speech impediment. Bugs was simply a figment of his drug induced hallucinations.
