    Here's the first shotgun I ever owned. It was my dad's pheasant gun for a few years before he went into the navy in 1943. In the early 1960's it got loaned to an older cousin by my dad until I turned 17 and then I got it. 16 ga. Iver Johnson Champion with full choke barrel purchased circa 1939 - 1940. Had it re-blued and the receiver re-case hardened 11 years after I got it. That was in 1978 and it still looks good today. Still gets occasional use, points great and 16 ga. doesn't beat you to death despite the gun being light. It's one of a small number of guns I call "heirloom guns" because they were passed down to me through the family.............

    This is the second shotgun I ever owned. A High Standard 12 ga. Flite King pump. Purchased brand new in November 1968 on sale at 69.95 IIRC. They were flying out the door at that price and I got there just in time to get the last one they had. Has a modified choke which was common in the days before screw ins. One of the smoothest, easiest actions to be found on a pump shotgun. Point the muzzle up 45 degrees, hit the slide release and the action will slide completely open all by itself. Being an 18 year old kid back then I just had to have something more powerful than the 16 ga. single shot in my previous post, and being able to fire quick follow up shots if desired. Because single shots weren't "cool" to me back then. Even though I love 'em now. Taken its share of game over the years including my first deer and a few years ago it was my sporting clays gun before I got a Browning Citori. IMG_1912.JPG .. IMG_1921.JPG .. IMG_2144.JPG ..

    Nothing extraordinary :eek:???

    Throws up an 870 ONG with bayo att. and folding stock.

    I don't know what I was doing the day those dropped, but I wish I had been paying attention, they were apparently quite reasonable to buy but limited supply. Would have loved to score one....

    I'm always getting emails from SOSS. Just happened to be at my PC when I got the email from them about police trade in shotguns.

    Thought I don't really need another shotgun, but when I saw it said Remington I clicked the link. I had my credit card out instantly.

    The folding stock model was $239, fixed stock was $229. I wish I'd bought 2, I think they sold out in about 2 hours.

    I guess the ONG didn't like the folders, I don't think mine had ever been used. Saw a lot of pictures of the fixed stock model and some were pretty rough.

    Even ones like this which I could afford only if I hit the Lotto!

    All Ljutics have beautiful wood; well except the one H'cap LE I know of with a PFS on it.

    I think #2 down is what I held the other day when the older feller I was shooting with swapped guns with me for a minute. I didn't shoot it but I pawed it over for a minute. I'm not experienced with these type of guns at all but I could tell what I was holding was of the highest quality. It was a $4500 gun and I'm pretty sure it was a Ljutic and I think it was #2 down.

    Ishmash Saiga 12. Tuned in a bit so it'll shoot low or high brass with zero issues.

    Next time you shoot with him, ask him if you can try a practice round with it. I guarantee you will come up with a plan to get a Ljutic, and a lot quicker than the 40 years it took me!

    I will say, the wood on your DT is top notch, George P! The buttstock almost looks like billowing smoke!

    I don't have a picture of it, but my Grandpa's pheasant gun was an H&R single shot in 16 ga. When they took the guns from the house (he developed Alzheimer's) I got it. Over the years, either he worked on the trigger, or it wore down to the point it was dangerous if you didn't know about it. I did get out and get a pheasant with it a couple years ago on my youngest son's first pheasant hunt. I gave the gun to my older son after years of him bugging me for it; so yes it's an heirloom gun. It's not in a nice shape as your IJ Champion. :) FWIW, a friend of mine shot Trap with his Dad's old IJ Champion, and had a 22 average.

    Oh that's not my DT-11; that is a Fabbri with some serious marble cake. My Dt has nice grain, slightly darker coloring (which I prefer to the "blond" walnut). One of these days I'll get around to taking pics
