Yes. Yes there is. Load the magazine full. Point at something you would like to destroy. Hold the trigger down and pump it as fast as you can. Let the Epiphany of knowing what God feels like when he's slam firing a shotgun wash over you.

Your new life begins today.

Cool.
Hmm. This gun came to me from my grandpa, who bought it over 60 years ago. I don't know if I should try it, or just keep using it once a year at the turkey shoot like I have for the last 20 years.

There ar some really nice guns in this thread. Rather than starting a new one lets see some pics of you're workhorse guns. You know every gun nut has at least one. I'll start with my go to rifle. I have more expensive and I will say very few more accurate on paper. But my pre-64 Model 70 super grade 30.06 I have carried at least a few days every deer season for 30 years.

I have killed more big game with this than all of my others combined. It just feels right. It is heavy and scratched up from use. The bolt is hand scribed with the serial # of the barrel. They just don't make production guns like this anymore. Let's see you're not so pretty great guns.

Just ask my father, his soon to be wife (my mother) very nearly obliterated him with a .410 while dating. Got the next row of corn. An inexperienced person can easily forget to release the trigger after firing a shell and cycle the action... I don't call this a slamfire.

Technically a slam fire is when the momentum of the bolt closing is sufficient to cause the firing pin to continue forwards hard enough to ignite the primer and discharge the gun, REGARDLESS of the trigger being pulled. Hence slam fire, "slam" the action shut too hard and the gun fires.

And yes, many older guns will do this. The newer designs have a light spring that holds the firing pin back.
Yeah, I'll sleep better tonight knowing that hair was split. He asked what we were talking about, and I explained it. Not sure what that has to do with someone almost shooting your father.
I'm well aware what a slamfire is as it pertains to gas guns and blowback guns (and a really spooky SXS I Had) But it's pretty common and accepted term when refferring to 1897s.
Might as well take up some bandwidth on the other gross inaccuracy-the reference I made to my Garand. Well, I'll beat you to it. There's no such thing, it was never called that.
" U.S. Rifle, Cal. .30, M1" or something to that effect was the proper name. But if I said Garand, everbody knew. Like if you typed "slamfire 1897" in google, they all come up with the same thing I was talking about.

Here's my small collection.



Top row: CETME .308 ; Hi-point .40 (spaceballs gun )
Second row: Mossberg 930 12 gauge ; Ruger 10/22
Bottom row: Doublestar 1911 ; old Topper model 158 single shot break barrell 12 gauge



My favorite....the 10/22 because its cheap to shoot, the 1911 cause its fun to shoot, the Hi-Point because I like pretending I'm an asshole. Major Asshole, The CETME because it makes alot of noise, the Mossberg because it puts very large holes in things, and the topper because...well not so much the topper.

About .5" at 50 yards, 1-1.5" at 100 with ammo it likes, maybe half again that with other ammo.

I've been lurking here for a year or so and thought that I would share some of my guns with you all. Guns were very special in my family and when one was passed down you knew it was special. These are a few of the ones that belonged to my Grandfather and Dad, they are both gone now and these guns are near and dear to me. My pictures aren't great so if you want to see another shot just let me know.
Thanks,Bob
My Grandfather used this in ww2, .30 cal carbine.

This is a Win model 62, .22 cal GDad bought in 1947.

This is a model 94, 30-30 from 1956, Dad got it for his 16th bday.

Here is a JC Higgens, .22 semi with the retractable sling in the stock, Dad bought this for me in around 1960 when I was born.

I hope you like 'em.

Retractable sling? Thats pretty neat. Never seen that before. I assume it rolls up like a tape measure or something?

Where would be a good place to find a stock for a Winchester 47? I let my very young cousin use it on his trap line and he fell. I know where he was and can see it happening. Anyway I need a new stock.
