he said he pulled the hammer back. its either a double barrel shotgun, a lever gun, or an exposed hammer muzzel loader. we can probably rule out double barrel, seeing how he said scope, and thats not all that common to put a scope on that type of shotgun. so we're stuck with 2 still, most muzzle loaders i know that have exposed hammers dont have an additional safety. its either cocked, or not. so im guessing its a levergun, probably of the .30-30 persuasion. and i know that my wifes levergun(marlin 336C in .35rem) will do the exact same thing. or its a handgun, its all debateable.
why are you looking down here? the good stuff is up there(points upwards, ok, work with me here).
