Ugly Gun Sunday

Click to enlarge
"A rancher friend of mine decided that he needed a real cheap and beat up shotgun for his truck. Sound familiar?

Anyway he told one his hands to find him one, and the hand came back with a real $25 doozey. Click to enlargeIt's a Savage bolt action on which some one had carved the left side of the stock with the word Catdaddy.

We all howled when we saw the gun. It is the ugliest gun I've ever seen. Upon closer inspection it was evident that something had been carved on the right side of the stock, but later covered up with a substance not entirely unlike bondo.

Since I do some minor smithing for some friends I was assigned the task of cleaning up the shotgun. Click to enlargeWell, after an hour of careful and painstaking archaeological excavation I discovered (as I suspected) that Catdaddy's girlfriend's name had been carved into the other side.

My guess is that Catdaddy broke up with Linda after he saw what she did to his favorite shotgun. Maybe he even used it on her..."

That reminds me of a "customized" Marlin 1895 Guide gun I saw in a local shop. Someone had decided to replicate one of those commemorative rifles with the gold medallions inlaid into the stock.

Suffice it to say that gluing a typical fifty cent piece and state quarter into hole saw drilled spots doesn't truly give one the look of a classy rifle.

Something special there. My guess is that young lady's name was spray painted on a few overpasses by the same fellow who owned the rifle, if quality of work is any indication.

You know ... bolt action shotguns are the best ones to build integral suppressors on.

Just sayin' ...

Gotta replace that special stock, though.
