That Craig guy is no more moving out of Orange than I am moving into Orange. Call me in three years and tell me I'm wrong. What are the five guns you're moving with, Craig? All of us are anxious to meet your extended family when they arrive at Dulles.

I think I recall the first time I saw that one. It was around 2009 or 2010 in the glow of a head lamp after we had set up the goose decoys in a northern Alberta field. Those barrels just sparkled in the light. If I recall correctly it was the first time Richard was going to hunt with it. He sure was tickled with it, and for good reason. She is a beauty. I was shooting a top lever 0 grade short 10 that's recorded in Parkers Found as the last with laminated barrels. Richard's good friend Trigg Davis was shooting a J.L. Rawbone short 10 of mine that he shot better than I ever did. By coincidence I came across a partial hard case of short 10 bismuth hand loads a couple of months ago that I couldn't remember where they came from as I never loaded bismuth. It took a minute to remember that Richard had left them with me after that hunt. Take good care of her, Bruce. I'm glad it went to someone who appreciates it.

It couldn’t have been much different when new. I am no longer “Barry B.” On the PGCA December homepage. John D. thought “Barry B.” was my Hollywood screen name.

This thread had me digging in the safe for some of my hammer 10's . I've got a match to this gun but not with as much condition . Also have a 32" Grade 2 on a 3 frame as well . And the Grade 1 two barrel set on a 2 frame consisting of 26 and 30 inch barrels . Kinda has me wanting a Grade 2 top lever 2 frame 28" 10 again

Craig, it’s currently displayed as the center piece on the dining room table. My gun cabinets are full as are the leg of mutton cases. It doesn’t seem right to shuffle it off to the darkness of a gun safe.
When it warms up a bit I’ll smoke some clay’s with it. I’m warm by the fire keeping the wild birds well fed.
