Default Single Shot Love

Anybody else have a love for single Shots? Whether it's a flintlock, H&R break action 12 Gauge or a Ruger Number 1, I am just drawn to them. There is something about having a light and simple weapon that appeals to me. One of my favorite guns is a Winchester single shot bolt action .22 long rifle that my grandfather owned. I think it was a model 1900. That is a great gun. Numerous little kids have learned to safely shoot and handle rifles with that gun. It even fed my Dad and uncle during a backpacking trip in the 1960's.

I would be better off if my flintlocks had multi-barrels However, I do like the simplicity of a single shot and Browning makes some great looking single shot rifles.

Have a single shot .410 shotgun. Use 00 buck in it as my primary defense gun against raccoons. Seems that them critters have a serious aversion to lead. Mama had to get one when I was deployed overseas. She tried using my pump pellet gun and had to "upgrade" when the pellets bounced off of one raccoon's thick skull and it charged her at the back door. It didn't do so well when she was armed with the shotgun the next time the two of them met. Mama won! <grin>

A double barreled flintlock would be really cool to have. Something in say .62 caliber with short barrels.

The Ruger No. 1 is a fine rifle.

I absolutely love the TC Encores for single shots. This is mine in a 204 Ruger for varmint hunting. It consistantly shoots .25 inch groops or smaller shooting Sierra 39 grain Blitzkings and H4895 powder.
