Go “Old School!”

Go Old School

“My old Twin Pipe never lets me down!”

If you know anything, make that, ANYTHING, about me, you know that I like things to be as simple and as hassle-free as possible. That’s why I like crapping in my outhouse. It never gets plugged up, it never backs up and runs all over the goddam floor, I never have to make repairs to the pipes and it doesn’t use any water.

Old School.

I like the term, “Old School.” I use it a lot… and one of my favourite Old School things is my old, beat up, double barrelled shotgun. It’s an inexpensive one that I bought 25 years ago from Calvin Pritchard’s Gunsmith Shop in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It’s so easy to shoot. I really like the flat sight plane, and the wide “view” I get when I look down the barrels or the “twins,” as I call them. And, it comes apart into three sections for easy transport… the barrels, the fore stock and the stock. You won’t find an easier shotgun to clean or check the barrels for obstructions either. Open it – look through.

Yes, yes, I know what you’re thinking… but, I “only get two shots instead of three” that I would with a pump action or a semi. I really don’t care about that for two reasons. One, I don’t go hunting to shoot every duck or goose I see. If get a few birds for the table, fine. And, two, my shotgun never, ever jams. I’ll bet your repeater does though, especially if it’s a semi-autoloader. I used to shoot a 12 gauge semi and at least twice each season, that damn thing would jam on me. She was fussy as to what type of loads I could send through ‘er. But, my open action double is always in a good mood, never jams and shoots well. And, if I do want to take a third shot at some birds, it takes me two seconds to open the action and drop a shell into the chamber. Snap – BANG!

On top of all this, my old “twin pipe” is “Old School,” which is rugged!
