I thought Shot Of The Day was about firearms one owned. If Fingers owns one he has one of only 6-7 known produced and the photo he shows is the only one extant.

Yeah, that's the general idea...I thought these were guns he owned?

I would not be surprised if he did own it.

Father/Son photo

Here is a photo of my Lyman Trade Rifle in .50 cal, (father) along with my Lyman Plains Pistol, (son) also in .50 cal. They make a great team!

I notice we are all slacking a little on this thread...c'mon, fellers! Somebody needs to post a new pic every day. We can't leave it all up to Mazo!
Unlike Mazo, I'm running out of irons. Should I start all over again with shots of the old stuff but out of silly angels ???

The way I see it, we have over 300 members, with probably 280 of them holding out! Come on fellers, pitch in! We're running out of guns without reruns!

Mine are not worthy. Besides I don't have good enough lighting here for good pics and outside there's no place to put them for decent pics.

We aren't giving extra points for worthy pix, Hawg! ;)

Good pix or bad, we wanna see them anyway! _*&

If the conditions are bad, the outcome might look like it's taken way back then. Give it a try.
