    Very cool.
    Be proactive about improving public waterfowl habitat in South Carolina. It's not going to happen by itself, and our help is needed. We have the potential to winter thousands of waterfowl on public grounds if we fight for it.

    Been to a couple of country auctions that had A5s listed. Sweet 16 are bringing a very good price but all the Belgium ones are up there as well.

    Ain't enough money in the world to buy these two
    I'd have to be homeless and real hungry to ever sell them
    The one on the right is a 20 gauge my father bought new when he came home from the Korean War.
    The one is the middle is a Sweet 16 my grandfather went out and bought in the late 50s after shooting my Dad's 20 gauge
    Excellent condition and a tractor trailer couldn't hold the shit they have killed
    I have two sons and each will get one
    That's an Ithaca Featherweight 20gauge on the left, made in 1911. Locks up tight as heck with ejectors. I love to shoot dove and quail with it

    Purty there ECU.

    FIL has 3 of his dad's belgian a5's. 12 20 and sweet 16.

    I'd like to find me a 20 or a 16 but damn they are high. I reckon they are not making any more.

    Also why would you want to buy one of the new a5's? Seems like you'd be paying over the top for a name. I am not sure how the new ones operate compared to the old ones, but if its running the same recoil system you would think they could make some upgrades in the past 100 years, and if its not running the the same recoil action system then how is it an a5 other than a name you're paying extra for.

    I have both my Granddaddy's Hump Backs. The one is a light 12 and throws 2 3/4 #1's like nobody business.

    According to the forestock, that gun has piled up some critters...
