Shotgun!

So it seems a Blogger meme has started. Brigid posted a thoughtful well researched review on an American classic. The Remington Wingmaster Model 870. Others took it up and posted about the 870's they might *ahem* have lying about. 

Murphy's Law shows two variants on this venerable tool that has put meat on the table and protected home and hearth.

Me? A rather pedestrian one here, but very special. It belonged to a friend of Mr. Curmudgeons that passed away over 18 years ago. 



I am honored to have it in my safe.  I have a "disposable" Winchester pump to carry the duty of defense. This one is a safe queen.Not so much because what it is but rather where its been.

  2. I am so on this meme.
    My 870 is the first boomstick I bought with my own minimum wage, hard earned, yankee dollars. 36 years ago.
