    Hi guys,

    Here's a few photos of my granddad's LC Smith. Old Mac lied about his age to get into the Army during WWI. This beauty he bought in 1943. I can't wait to get this guy out on the range.

    I hope you all enjoy the photos as much as I did taking them.

    John,

    Beautiful old SXS! I owned one until the lead ban and then foolishly traded it off. Mine wasn't nearly as nice though, almost 0% finish left and a dent in one barrel.

    Didn't hurt it a bit though. I still remember one particular double on mallards on a cold cloudy December day.

    Hope you enjoy it on the range. I know you will, they are fine pieces.

    That's a beautiful Elsie- hope you treasure it as much as your grandfather obviously did.
