The 1880's Henry Arms shotgun I have says "Damascus Style" barrels, which my Dad says is different than having Damascus barrels. He used this gun to hunt pheasants and quails clear up into the 1960's using modern smokeless rounds, but says he quit using it when it started popping open when fired.

I use it only as a wall hanger now and my feeling is it should have never been used for anything other than blackpowder rounds.

Fear is a Reaction..............Courage is a Decision
