    The memories I have of the first time my father letting me pack an H&R .410 OR 20 guage around quail or grouse hunting for the first times are some of my favorite memories.I am sure several members here have similar memories of their own.I have had several H&R firearms but as far as function and handiness go these are two of my favorites.Everyone should have one leaned in the corner of their home somewhere imo.I apologize for the photos I aint much of a cameraman.

    I have no pictures, but many, many memories of carrying an old H&R "Long Tom" 36" barrel full choke 12ga that was my grandfathers... Wish I had that gun now...

    very nice, mct453. very nice indeed.

    I'm getting dangerously close to a saturday of pawn-shopping for an old H+R single shot....
    not needed...but I can feel it coming on...



    this H+R 922 is much older than I am...and aging better too! :D

    I have had both Marlin and Ruger semi auto .22 mags and both are gone.I love both manufacturers very much but both failed at these two firearms as far as I am concerned.I have never handled the H&R though.I have known of them but I reckon this one you posted is the first I have seen..Thanks for putting it up.

    Not sure if I can ever reach the ranks of this group. Some very nice pieces. I have a Handi Grip on the way. Chambered in .308. I can't wait to add to it.

    Bushcraft is whatever you want it to be. Must of us have just gone to simple and light kit and you can't get any simpler or lighter than a singleshot shotgun. The singleshot is also iconic for most of us since that's the shotgun we cut our teeth on. Mine was a Springfield/Steven 410 that I carried all over my grandparents farm and took everything from rabbits and other furry rodents to crows. My father still has it.

    My singleshot is a Rossi 20 that I traded four boxes of .45 for. I also had a H&R Handi-rifle at one time in .308 and like a fool, I traded it away. That's another one I wish I had back.

    Understandable point of view. Pigs aren't a problem where I live. We just have to watch out for the occasional mad squirrel or attack rabbit, both of which a single shot shotgun will take down, no problem. Don't get me wrong. I own and use a Remington 870 and its a great gun, just not what I like to carry in the field, when I'm just tramping around. Now if if it's dove season, that's a different story!

    I own a stainless barrel .223 like the one pictured below) but with a 3 x 9 Barska Russian made scope, it's my wild goat rifle. I also own a 12 gauge, and a 20 gauge Pardner shotguns. On the 12 I removed the pistol grip on the butt stock making it a straight stock, and slimmed down the fore end to make it look more "English" in style (sorry no pictures yet).

    My first post to this awesome site, and one of my favorite threads.
    Probably my favorite gun, a 999 Sportsman, 1967 model I think:
    [​IMG]

    I also have the Deluxe Topper Model 98 20ga my dad bought new in about 1978. He used it some but usually let one of us boys carry it as he carried his old .410.

    I would love to hear how you did that and see a pic. I much prefer straight stocks. I'm not very handy when it comes to wood work though.

    I have it stashed in my gun safe with stuff blocking it. Give me a day or so to dig it out and take a picture of it along with an actual picture of my scoped .223. I wish I took a before shot of my 12 gauge pardner before a trimmed the stock but I guess it would look like any other run-of-the-mill 28" barrel Pardner. Basically just trimmed the pistol grip off with my band saw then shaped it with my belt sander with final sanding by hand before staining the rather plain pallet-wood (birch?) stock a dark walnut.

    Man that is one sweet pistol. Never seen that model before. I love those break action style pistols. How does it shoot?

    Maybe Texas pigs have a different temperament than our Hawaiian boars. That's what we mostly have here are pigs, and allot of them but I have never felt under-gunned using a single shot. My experience over 40 years has been one shot one drop with the rest of the herd (sounder) scattering from the sound of the shot. The very large boars are usually solitary. My hunting is mostly in thick rain forest with most shots pretty much point blank so rarely time for the second shot even with a repeater. On my island (Oahu) most hunters prefer archery or knife & hounds where the risks are even higher buy rarely hear of any trouble.
    If need be I am able to reload my single shot fast enough that I have been able to shoot down a flushing bird with a second shot my shotgun having a strong ejector to spit out an empty, and always having a second round ready in my left hand. Can be done with practice though I've never had to on a pig in all my years.
    I've hunted Texas west of San Antonio and I hunted using my single shot 357 magnum rifle. The country was drier and more open than what I am used to hunting here in the islands. Didn't see any pigs but I did pop a nice Blackbuck Antelope. Again, maybe Texas pigs have a different temperament than our Hawaiian boars.
    Hunt with whatever makes you feel confident. ;)

    It's actually a Tamer model, not the .410/45lc "Survivor" model, I just changed the stock after I bought it.

    Better than the owner ;) Actually it shoots quite well but I've never really measured groups or anything. I like to load it up with CB shorts and plink away off the deck while I'm grilling. The top break makes it easy to load/unload and the shorts are quiet enough to not require hearingr protection.

    I think they started making these in the late 30s or early 40s and went until the early 80s. The early ones had a solid barrel (4 or 6") of the same shape but didn't have the machining in them to make it sort of a vent rib. The one shown has the firing pin attached to the hammer but later models had a transfer bar system. I had one of those but our house was broken into and it was stolen. I liked it so much that I ran a wanted ad in the local shopper paper. An older gentleman called and said he had a new one in a dresser drawer - no box but it was covered in the factory protectant lube and wrapped in the factory paper. That was a great find!

    Got a couple of Pardner 20s for around the farm, and ended up using them for everything else, too. One's set up for right-handed and the other for lefty. That's one of my biggest reasons to like them: they're dead simple and easy easy to work with as-is, though we really like the Choate Store-Arm fore arms to carry a little kit (and/or couple more rounds) and the built-in sling mount.

    I was looking at this thread today and I got inspired and went out to Wally World and bought a 12ga. Now what am I going to do with this thing?

    They are out there if you look a little. I bought my first one about 20 years ago at a small gun show. Our house was broken into a few years later and it was stolen. I really wanted to replace it so I ran a wanted add in a local shopper paper. Didn't expect much but an older gent called and said he had a new one tucked away in dresser drawer. It had been there 20 years and was covered in cosmoline. If I recall correctly we agreed on $90. It's my favorite.

    Shoot it. Those are fun for clay pigeons, great for hunting and so forth - use the heck out of it.

    I've already shot 1/2 a box of low brass #8 out of it. What I was trying to say is how am I going to mod it. I have a few other shotguns I hunt with but I bought this gun just for woods bumming and I kinda want to personalize it, you know making it more bushcrafty and such. One of the things that has crossed my mind is I don't think my neck can handle shooting a 12ga this light. :56:

    I've been reading a lot of H&R threads lately and thought I'd bump this one back up to the top. We only have one single shot shotgun in the house (MW long Tom) that was the FIL's. It's a nice gun but in a 12 gauge with a full choke3 6" barrel it blows the fur off of squirrels and rabbits unless they are 40 yards away. The rest of the shotguns are SXS and one 870 pump and I've been reading and looking at pictures of singles trying to make my mind up on what I'd like to get. Tonight we need to go to town so a stop at the local GS is in order, what they have in inventory on the used rack may dictate what I decide to get. :) I'm really in the mood for a 10GA to play with just for something fun and different.

    My son has a 223 that I bought several years ago. Plain Jane heavy barrel with a Burris scope. I have a 22 K Hornet with a Burris mounted as well. I really like the Hornet. It is like having a reloadable 22 Mag on steroids. Here is a bob cat that my buddy shot with my Hornet a few years back.

    This is my son with his 223 and a coyote he shot. With him are his cousin and a good friend.

    H&R 676, 22LR & Magnum cylinders. I can tell you that mine is 35 years old, have run +25,000 rounds of some of the cheapest ammo down the barrel, and it's still like new. Out of all my bangers, by far, had the most fun!
