    Default My Grandfather's Ithaca Pigeon Gun

    I gave it to my brother; since ( out of respect ) I never used it; so sentimental value. Over 100 years old; but hammerless. I think a 1909. It was custom made, and I believe, 32" barrels, both full choke. A distance shooter. In my area, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back ( 1920s & 1930s ), pigeon matches were popular, and big $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ were often bet. I know both barrels were full choke, since, in a 12 gauge, a dime will not slip into a full choke barrel; but will slip into a modified barrel. Try it.
