You could sell this classic to Sum Ting Wong as he can appreciate it's uniqueness.

Yeah he cleared up some misconceptions I had from my youth, so apologies for my mis-remembering and giving bad information. First, it wasn't his "defense" gun despite him talking about using it on potential burglars. He had a pump action .22 for that. And it isn't double barreled. It's a single barrel, but it is breech loaded, which I do remember him showing me at one time. He said he still oils it now and again, but hasn't fired it since he was a teenager. And he it's been in storage since 2000 as it was a gift from my grandfather and before that he kept it locked up which is probably why I only remember seeing it a few times and handling twice.

Just stumbled on this thread, yay. I am just finishing up my first AR build and intend on it being a range/hog hunting/home defense gun. Really have enjoyed the process of gathering parts and putting it together.

I'd probably be the first to die if the apocalypse hit. But hey, whoever ransacks my house will be pleased. ATV, guns, beer.

Wow, the more I type this out, I realize I am a ****ing hick. No wonder my neighbors don't talk to me much (Highlands Ranch).

Hopefully a bigger round, maybe .308? You're not hunting hog w/ 5.56.

I don't know how I missed this sorry Doc. 5.56, I have since built a second (also 5.56) for the woman and we have had a good time at the range.

Working on one for the old man as a surprise, he likes to hunt hogs in Florida. 5.56 as well, I considered .308 but I am finding that it's cheaper for that to buy a whole rifle versus building.

I can post pics if anyone cares. They aren't fancy but it's awesome shooting something I built myself.

You'd be surprised with the way ammo is anymore, a decent .223/5.56 will easily kill a hog. You can kill deer with them. Of course this is all range dependent, you probably aren't going all Ted Nugent from a chopper with it...but it will do the trick within 75 yards I bet.
