Default Pinned Barrels

I'm posting some eye candy for viewing. They belong to one of my best friends, and he gave me permission to post photos. I did get to shoot both of them today. All I will say is he out shot me, but he didn't cause three (3) steel targets to fall with one shot. :-)







They both were purchased new by my friend, the 29-2 has counterbored cylinders, the 14-3 is a dream to shoot. Both have 8 3/8" barrels.

Sweet lookers and I'm sure awesome to shoot. I don't yet own a "long tube" but the more I see and hear about them, the more I want one!

So, I guess this means that you hit the gravel in front of the targets, the gravel flew up and knocked down all three?

Of course not, it had to be skill, :-) or wind from the 240 gr, Speer half jacket, loaded in 1988.

Actually I probably hit the stand and the concussion made them fall. They are all mounted on a common stand. That's my excuse and I am sticking to it. I'm 73 and kinda shakey sometimes.

I really like the barrel lengths. To me, any barrel less than 6 inches is a snub nose.
