I've got a few single shots. Ruger #1's. Need some #3's. I have a few different varieties of #1's, it would be very hard to explain to someone that has not held one between their hands how a light, full barreled rifle feels. You pull it up, it hits the shoulder pocket, your eye is just right there and it feels short and light. It just aims like a good shotgun. I suspect James knows exactly what I mean. Nice rifles James.

I can't believe I looked at your wood.

This is actually an old Harrington and Richardson 16ga single shot.

It was in pretty bad shape, and I could not believe the wood grain when I stripped it and started to refinish it.

Very nice to both owners! Always wanted a Ruger single shot rifle.

Now that's some beautiful wood, 247.

WST, I like the elegance of single-shots and their retro technology. Even in their modern form, they make me think of Lewis & Clark and mountain men, in the same way that lever-actions make me think of cowboys and Western movies.

Not meaning to brag, but the fact is most of my game has been taken with one shot. Usually, when you hear someone shooting up the woods, shot after shot, they aren't killing game. So you should need only a single-shot in most situations. That said, it is true that I do my hunting with bolt-action or lever-action repeaters.

I like bolt-action rifles too. Accurate rifles are interesting, and pretty wood is interesting. I have some accurate bolt-actions, but none with pretty enough wood to show here.

Thank you!

The research I have done indicated it's a model 1900. It's at least 100 years old.

Its was one of my Grandfathers, not sure when or where he got it however.

I have shot a few turkeys with it also, they gotta be under 25 yards however, the pattern gets pretty big after that!
