Little Ditty
« on: August 22, 2017, 03:53:01 PM »

Yup crazy people name their guns.  This one's name is Little Ditty.  I am always amazed when I finish a project. I don't believe I did it in 4 days. Burn pile to hunter in 4 days! I know I should post this on the thread already started. I couldn't help myself I gotta show this little ditty off. The fore end tips are still a mite darker, from the melted plastic finish, than the rest. There ain't no charred grain, so I can live with that. Kinda like battle scars, gives it character. It shoots just fine the safety/barrel selector was rusted in shut when I got him. As soon I got it back together I stepped out back door let fly. I always put the door between me and the rescue project on the first shots. Hide grows back eyeballs don't. Everything John M. designed on the gun works perfectly. I forgot about the auto ejector and nearly took a pair of fast moving 28 high brass hulls on my big nose. Gotta remember to duck next time.
Oh yeah, good thing I saved that old Browning Citori hard case. I bought a shotgun in a pawnshop the clerk threw in the case I got a L.C. Smith 12ga and an old case for $150. I like them kinda deals. Little shotgun crawled in there and went to bed like it was made for him. 'Cause it was, I even have the original keys. Anybody want to go pawnshop prowling with me?

Now maybe I can get some work done around here.  I still have 10 or 12 under construction.  You know how it is when a project catches your attention.
