Is that enough gun for that animal?

if he is hunting in the springbok natural habitat the gun isnt so much for the springbok but the things that that eat the springbok... it just works double duty.

the holland and holland a couple of posts up is a double rifle not a shotgun. they are pricey because each part is hand made and hand fitted the barrels are tuned to fire in concert with each other.

While H&H also makes very fine double barreled shotguns, the one I linked and pictured is one of their double rifles, which are more rare, and thus fitting this category.

From the description:

Quote:
Magnificent Best sidelock “Royal Ejector” double rifle in .375 H&H flanged magnum, completed in 1995. Weight: 9 lbs. 2oz. Stock with 14 ½” LOP. Superb 24” chopper lump steel barrels with mint bores have a quarter rib and ramp front sight.

Factoid, a week before I got there a hude leopard had scaled/jumped the 12 ft electric fence surrounding the game park and started devouring wildebeests
I didn't feel overgunned for 1 second!

Nah, Breaker reputedly said "Shoot straight, ya bastards. Don't make a mess of it". Unfortunately for him, the firing squad did shoot straight and he was killed in Pretoria in 1902.




Sorry for the hijack BB
