As you guys know I'm working toward starting to compete in Cowboy Action Shooting. Well, went to a gun show this morning to look around and was trying to find a 38/357 rifle. They had a bunch of 30-30 and other calibers but only one in 38/357 and it was a butt ugly carbine with brass tacks and such stuck all over it. Anyway I had no luck on what I was looking for. Glass and I went with a good friend and we had been talking and he said something about bringing a shotgun to the gun show as he had bought it and never fired it and might as well trade it. I asked what type and OMG he said it was a lever action. Turned out it was the exact shotgun I wanted and he wanted to trade. To make a long story short I now own a never fired reproduction of John Brownings 1887 lever action 12 GA shotgun. I had no idea my friend had the shotgun and he had no idea I was looking for one. Here she is, I hope to take her out tomorrow for a range test.
