So I know this is a really stupid question but I would rather ask than have something bad happen... I was just given a Ted Williams Model 34 .22. Seems to be in pretty good shape. I have never had a tube fed gun before and want someone to explain to me the proper way to load it. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Drop the bullet in with the lead end up, rim down, just like you would load A bolt action. I hope this is plain enough so you can understand.

For an underbarrel tube- place gun on safe, tilt muzzle up at a 45 degree angle, and turn gun so that trigger is up. Twist the end of the magazine tube to unlock it, pull tube out until the loading port is open. Drop cartridges in the opening one at a time, bullet towads the muzzle. When you have loaded the number of rounds the rifle holds, slide tube back down, twist to lock in place. Turn rifle back over, operate bolt to chamber a cartridge.

Sometimes it is less costly/painful to ask a question than to wing it. And that is FAR from the worst question ever asked here- trust me on that!

Matter of fact, we may put together a "Worst Question Ever Asked" thread. But the people that have asked how they can make their illegal/ homemade full auto/ silencer work better already have 1st Place Dumbass sewn up. The guy shooting .32 ACP out of a blank pistol gets 2nd place. :p
