Saw the perfect food gun for sale at my local gun store. A Savage Drilling.
Well, not a drilling, I guess. Just a combo gun. My brain just thinks "Drilling" when I see a long guns that shoots rifle and shotgun. Which is wrong of my brain. Drilling comes from the German word for 'three'. Drei. Three barrels. This was 2.
It was very simple. Just a break open single shot machanism long gun. Top barrel is .22 long rifle, bottom is .410. With those two you can eat any critter this side of the Mississippi. I know you can take deer with a .410 slug. Ducks and such with different shot. And .22 for miscellaneous 'other' woodland cuties..
Only one trigger. So load .22 or load .410 or waste a round when you pull the trigger and double down on the bang.
I don't know why, but I kinda covet it. I admire that simplicity and utility. Bricks of .22 and shotshell reloader and you have meat for a Robinson Crusoe life. And I also like these.
Update: Link to a fan page of the Savage 24.
Seen outside the Broad Ripple Art Fair... - Parked up along the Monon were these two very Broad Riparian steeds: Very unlikely to be confused with the other bikes in the rack. Pedaled into Broad Rippl...
