Kwaheri, Tommy Mac
Tom McIntyre died last week (Nov. 3) at his home in Sheridan, Wyoming. He was…
Arrieta y Cia. round-action sidelock built on a 16-gauge frame. A gorgeous gun, undoubtedly, but it was not quite there.
Perils & Pitfalls
What follows is a brief cautionary tale about the ordering of the shotgun of one’s…
One part of the French walnut stock on the E.M. Reilly, circa 1895, probably made for Reilly by P. Webley in Birmingham. Photos cannot do it justice. It was restored by Edwin von Atzigen.
New & Used
Here’s a choice for you: A new, custom-built shotgun, tailored to your every arcane specification…
Colt Woodsman Match Target, circa 1950, with floral-tooled holster by H.H. Heiser and magazine pouch by S.D. “Tio Sam” Myers.
Leather is one of three living materials that are essential to the creation of fine…
Colt Woodsman Match Target, circa 1950, in as near-perfect condition as it gets. Like the aristocrat she is, she demands only the best: In this case, Federal Gold Medal Match ammunition.
For the better part of a decade, we could make a call or go down…
Loading tools and accoutrements for the Pope-Stevens include a false muzzle, bullet starter, and bullet mould.
The Rock Island premier auction that ended yesterday was an object lesson in the effect…
The only print left on Wieland’s wall is a caribou by Douglas Allen. Allen was a commercial artist, commissioned to provide art work for Jack O’Connor’s 1960 book "Big Game Animals of North America." As a full-page color plate in that book, this painting ignited Wieland’s love affair with caribou.
Art for a Buck’s Sake
The very first magazine article I ever wrote was about hunting caribou in Quebec; the…
Alexander Henry hammerless single-shot rifle, chambered for the .450 Express 3¼”. An elegant rifle of flawless workmanship.
Notes on Alexander Henry
When we think of British riflemakers, the names that usually spring to mind are Holland…
The Smith & Wesson Model 16-4 (top) and the Ruger Single-Six are about the same size. They will shoot any of the four cartridges shown. From top left, the .32 ACP, .32 S&W, .32 S&W Long, and the .32 H&R Magnum. Because the .32 ACP is semi-rimmed, it will not work in all revolvers, and should be tried only in strong, modern guns.
Bigger, But Not Better
A couple of weeks ago, I realized an ambition that has been lurking for 32…
Most of the guns mentioned, clockwise from left: High Standard derringer (.22 WMR), High Standard derringer (.22 LR), North American Arms revolver (.22 LR), BJT derringer (.38 Spl.) and the S&W Airweight (.38 Spl.) The J-frame Airweight is not much bulkier than the others, but is immeasurably better in every way.
Ya Gotta Wonder
A couple of years ago, I wandered into a gunshop and what should my wondering…
Strong? Here’s how strong: This filter contains two complete grinders full of freshly, ultra-finely ground, French roast. It will yield a little over one mug full to start the day.
One Last Remaining Vice
George Orwell is remembered as the author of Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm, but before…
The Sierra ZZ wood-burning stove. With the fire out, you can see the construction. Air is blown into the surrounding chamber, and then into the furnace through holes in the walls. That pile of firewood is enough to cook a couple of meals.
Cooking With(out) Gas
In 2008, I drove to the Yukon to go hunting with my old friend George…
