I'll bring a small block Chevy, they give them out with every purchase of a Slurpee.

Still looking for an appropriate single.

Me too Larry - I was trying for a Manufrance Simplex - but I got Maggie's Drawers on that.

That would be a little too tight for Flatwater. Now if you'd saw it off to 26-27" I'll bet it'd be just about the cat's meow.

We could shorten the barrel and install choke tubes right there on the pool table - with about 20 guys hovering over the work and giving advice on how to hold a hacksaw. The stock may need some fitting but Tiny is handy with a rasp. Add the pre/post-surgery MOI measurements to the Flatwater database and we're good to go. (Larry would have it traded away before he got back to Wisconsin, anyway.)

Bluestem, that's one case where I would trade a Purdey for a Stevens (and a lot of "boot")! After winning the concours d'elegance at the first annual Flatwater singleshot event.

Larry, Larry, Larry. You're a writer. You should know that you can't have a first annual anything. The AP Style Book requires three years before an event can be called annual. :mrgreen:

David, Flatwater is an exception. We know everything there is forever.

Cool. There being no formal course of fire, you'll be a fine force of one!

I'm borrowing an Ithaca Victory trap gun from Mark Beasland.
