    New shotgun, well new to me.

    I was at my dads yesterday looking at his air compressor and we got on the topic of some friends of theirs that are moving out of their house and into a retirement home.

    Well he says the guy has a single shot 12ga they people running the estate sale have marked at $25. So I tell him to pick it up for me.

    This morning he shows up with a sort of beat up but still rather sound White Powder Wonder single shot. The best I can tell from info on the net is it is probably about 80 or so years old.

    I guess I have another project on the list to get it cleaned up and see if it will function properly.

    Is there anything I should look for, as far as it being safe to shoot still? If nothing else it will be something to talk about.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
