“1884 Tacticool”

I got a real kick out of this…


When I was much younger and competitive “practical” pistol shooting was getting to be a thing, I was as much into tacticool gadgets as my budget allowed – often to what turned out to be a counterproductive extent. So I know it’s not a new thing, but I don’t go quite back this far. Nice to know I didn’t invent being an obnoxious gadget-chaser…

    Me want. The plain one is estimated to go at $1,400.00 – $2,250.00 at the RIA auction. I just wish that Ian could have fired one so that we could see how well the ejector worked. That thing would be a nice companion piece to carry in the field along with my Model 1890 Spencer-Bannerman pump shotgun originally patented in 1882. It was the first widely produced pump action shotgun that was commercially available. Really tacticool at the time. I emailed Ian about two weeks ago wondering if he’s ever fired one. Haven’t heard anything back, but he’s probably really busy. I also imagine that he gets hundreds of emails from us schlubs and doesn’t get a chance to read them very often. I really do enjoy his videos and am glad that you turned me on to them………………

To the stake with the heretic!
