The lost art of the side by side

For what seemed like a century the side by side double barrel shotgun ruled the roost.  It was cheap, simple to use, and its application nearly instantly understandable to anyone who laid eyes on it.  Two back to back shots of 12 gauge.  But today is seems to have fallen out of favor.  What did the pour thing in?  I’d say this topic is worth investigating.

The world of double barrels certainly has changed in the last century and a half.  Once upon a time in the early 1930’s, double barreled shotguns could be had for very little.  With some gun catalogs pricing them at $12 or less.  With an inflation adjustment that would come out to about $186.  Not a bad price at all for a highly versatile, easy to use firearm.  Now a days finding a quality gun at that price would be nearly impossible.  Now much of what you’d find at the double barrel section at a gun store would be high-end trap shooting over/under shotguns.

These gun from $500 all the way up to $2000 with a median price of about $1200.   These shotguns are quite a bit more mechanically complex and fragile than the side by sides of today and  yesteryear.  While fantastic choices for skeet and bird hunting, they’re generally poorly suited for combat or home defense with their long barrels and hefty price tag.  Only a few companies come to mind with a “combat over/under” in their line up.  The Stoeger Condor Outback is the only one i can think of.

As much handy and simple to use they are quite obsolete.  Since 1987, the year Winchester debuted the Model 1897, double barreled shotguns started to lose market share to their repeating counterparts.  While two shots of 12 gauge may seem powerful, it pales in comparison to 5 repeating shots of 12 gauge.

Pump-guns like the Remington 870 don’t break the bank and have been around since 1950.  That means gunsmiths and accessory manufacturers know the ins and outs of these quite well.   They stay strong and make for great guns to be passed down from one generation to the next.  Not to mention that their pump action makes them well suited for all kinds of ammo from low power bird shot to 3 inch magnum slugs.

Finally we have to mention one of the bigger side by side killers.  The automatic shotgun.  The first successful semi-auto shotgun to come out to the market was the browning Auto 5.

Once it hit the scene it was a instant hit with sport shooters and outlaws alike.  The auto 5 offered something that nothing else had before 5 shots as fast as you could pull the trigger.  Not to mention its reliability.  With its tagline of “come hell or high water” its easy to understand its popularity.  Nothing at the time offered as much as the Auto-5 could, reliability and great endurance.  The borrowed time the side by side was going off of finally ran out in the late 60’s.

It isn’t completely over for them tho.  Groups such as cowboy action shooting keep the spirit alive with their meet ups where people compete to see who’s the fastest and the most accurate.  Side by sides also keep them selves alive with pop culture.  They’re usually shown as close range annihilators in wild west shows, or video games.  It’s to let the audience know that no one who gets hit with one of these is walking out.  Not to mention they still are popular in places where firearm ownership is unfortunately highly restricted.

So if you’re thinking about getting a new shotgun maybe consider purchasing a side by side.  Whether they’re used or brand new, you’ll get years and years or enjoyment out of the side by side.  A true American classic!

Here at H&H Shooting Sports we are committed to being Oklahoma’s Headquarters for Guns and Gear.  To reach that goal we buy, trade or sell used guns!  How does that work you may ask?  Well I’ll let you know.  You’ll bring your gun, unloaded, up to the front counter and tell us that you want to sell it.  From there a manager and a gun smith will look over the gun and give you an offer.  If you accept the offer you can leave with cash in hand that day.  If you want to make a trade for a firearm then you’ll be given a 5% discount from the regular price of the new firearm and the value of your trade in.

Just think,  any one of these used guns could be yours!

Being able to trade out and sell firearms is a very easy way to expand your collection and clean out your safe of the guns that are gathering dust.  Buying a used firearm is a great way to get a great deal on guns that may be hard to find or no longer in production.  They say that some guns aren’t made like they used to – so buying used might be what you’re looking for.   So stop into H&H today and see what you can find!

Top Ten Rental Guns

The range at H&H features over 100 different guns available for rental.  Over the years we have noticed several trends in what is most popular at the moment and what is good quality.  Remember, this list is my top 10, but I want to hear from you, if you don’t agree with my list shoot back in the comments.  I’d love to hear about something I’ve missed.

Number Ten:  The Smith and Wesson Victory 22.

Now this gun really isn’t something people ask for directly by name, but it does get rented out a lot. Now you may ask why is that?  When people come to the range and ask for something easy to start out on this my go to answer.  This gun has all the good qualities of a beginners gun – it is lightweight, easy to handle, has great iron sights, it is simple to operate and the ammo is cheap.  The S&W Victory .22 is great for experienced and new shooters alike.  It’s hard not to have a good time plinking away with a fun .22LR.

Number Nine: Glock 17 and 19

These two guns are just about the same so I’ll lump them together for simplicity.  Both guns are great options for people who have shooting experience under their belts.  Both are simple to use controls and cost effective 9mm ammo make both an easy way to test out your shooting skills.  With Glock’s overall popularity, reliability, and reputation these two guns are commonly asked for by newer shooters who know the brand name.  Take either the Glock 17 or Glock 19 out on the range and you will understand why Glock has earned its stripes.

Number Eight: Ruger 10/22

Just like the Smith & Wesson Victory, this rifle remains a favorite of shooters at all skill levels.  Its ease of use and affordable ammo make it a great recommendation to newer shooters who may be nervous about using a gun for the first time.  The low recoil and great accuracy eases anyone in to the idea of shooting.  It’s always great to have someone bring it back and get a glowing review of it!

Number Seven: Smith & Wesson 686

Now here is something people are slightly asking for.  Since Dirty Harry splashed onto the silver screen newer shooters where enthralled by the idea of a giant revolver that could “Blow your head clean off”.  The sad truth of the matter is, the Smith & Wesson 29 is too much gun for newer shooters.  But the idea of a nice, powerful revolver sticks in their heads.  Enter the 686.  This lovely revolver is a great choice for those who come in asking for a “big revolver” that wouldn’t snap their wrist in half.  The large weight of the 686 makes it a bit softer for .357 and even softer for the .38 special cartridge.  Plus shooting a wheel gun is an experience everyone should have at least once.

Number Six: Smith & Wesson Shield

Alright now we get into the guns people are really asking for.  The most popular guns for sale at the moment are compact concealed carry guns, and the shield fits the bill!  It’s slim dimensions make fore a great in the waist band gun.  In addition the tall grip makes for easy shooting.  It is most commonly rented out in 9mm but is available in .40S&W and .45 ACP.  Although this is anecdotal, I’ve never heard of a lot about it malfunctioning.  The Shield has stayed strong after 1,000’s of rounds and it seems like it still has move life in it!

Number Five: The Springfield armory 1911 mil-spec.

The true American pistol.  It’s hard to watch a World War II movie with out seeing a M1911 in a holster or in use.  The nearly 120 year old design has stood the test of time in the field’s of popularity and actual mechanical reliability.  It’s all steel construction makes for a smooth shooter.  The .45 ACP cartridge is a not exactly a beginner friendly but after just a bit of practice you’ll be slinging .45s like its second nature.  Not to mention that the 1911’s trigger has set the gold standard for a crisp triggers since it came out.  Not to mention that the grips just naturally fir to your hand.  H&H also has about 8 to choose from so take your pick!  It leaves no doubt that you have a firearm in your hand.  While H&H has this exact model, other models of 1911s are availible, such as some from Kimber and Nighthawk.

Number Four: M&P 15 sport, Smith and Wesson.

The AR in AR-15 stands for Armalite (the company that designed it) but I’m pretty sure that you could tell some people that it stands for America’s Rifle and they would believe it..  The range I used to work at has three AR-15s for rent and it’s not an uncommon site for all three of them to be out at any given time.  It is a light weight, easy to use, low recoiling, easy to shoot rifle.  It hits a perfect storm of what an average gun owner is looking for.  In a way it’s almost a successor to the Winchester 1894 in the sense of popularity and ease of use.   The ammo can be had for cheap and it’s no slouch either.  The AR-15 shows people a whole new world of rifle shooting.  It’s really something you have to understand for yourself by shooting one for yourself.  The most popular one that gets rented out is oddly enough the plain jane M&P 15 from smith and wesson.  It stands to reason that if you love the base model you’ll like any extra features.

Number Three: The glock 42/Glock 43

The concealed carry craze is no joke.   For years people have been asking glock for a single stack 9mm and they answered the call with a .380 and a 9mm.  These two guns are commonly asked for and recommended by the range staff.  So it’s no wonder why they are rented out a lot.  Glock’s simple and no nonsense approach to firearm design is evident is their compact carry design.  Thanks once again to Glock’s brand recognition, this gun is an easy choice to try out for those in the market for a carry gun.  And when the gun comes back from being rented, the reviews I get are just like it’s larger framed friends.  No failures to eject for miss feeds.  It’s simple and reliable.  What more can you ask for?

Number Two: The Sig 365

This gun is the king of the Hill.  This gun is asked for by name.  This one has people coming back to buy more ammo.  Every time it’s brought back, it comes back with glowing reviews.  For the concealed carry crowd, I’d say there’s no better option that we could rent out for you.  It has great capacity at ten+one rounds of ammo.  It’s accurate, looks good, feels great to hold and shoot.  People just can’t get enough of this little beast.  It hits all the qualities of a great pistol and at a great price too!  Not to mention it comes with all of the Sig manufacturing standards that you’ve come to expect.  Just go try it out yourself, just make sure you have a lot of money with you.  You might walk out the door with one.

Honorable mention:  Springfield Hellcat

This is an honorable mention for one reason.  We just got one for the rent rack and it is proving to be very popular.   That’s all I’ve got for you, on to number one!

Number one! The Smith and Wesson EZ Shield.

This pistol has been a gift from above!  There have no shortage of people who have just not had an easy time racking back a pistol slide, not to mention handle heavy recoil.  With a combination of light springs and the softer .380 acp, this gun is a great entry point for people who have reduced grip strength.  I’ve rented this gun out and have seen people go and purchase it.  Seeing some one who has never been able to rack a slide then be able to shoot with confidence really warms your heart.  It’s a lovely firearm that let’s just about every one have a chance at self defense!

What do you think of the list?  Maybe you could go to a range and try these guns out for yourself!

Keep it holstered while in the store!

So you’re finally going to the range, the gunsmith or you are day dreaming about buying a new LWRC rifle – whatever brings you in we are glad you went.  During your visit, we would just like to remind you of one incredibly important thing. Guns are welcome on premises (duh) however please keep ALL weapons holstered unless need arises – in such case, judicious marksmanship is appreciated! So keep it holstered there Huckleberry.  Here at H&H, or any gun store for that matter, your firearm needs to stay in its holster, box, or range bag until you are out on the range at the firing line.  Most, if not all, gun stores and ranges emphasize this policy, so whenever you pull out your firearm in the middle of the retail section you break the air of safety that we care so much about.

“Oh! Don’t worry its not like its loaded or anything.” Remember – The 1st Law: The Gun Is Always Loaded.  Accidents can happen at anytime so we do as much as we can to mitigate the risks involved at a gun range.

“Oh don’t worry I’m very careful with it”  Okay – that maybe true – but is everyone else careful?  How do you know that the firearm is in good working condition, and not broken or damaged in some way to where it could accidentally discharge?  Do you know if every one around you is careful?  Maybe someone behind you could trip into you and make you drop it.  Risk mitigation is every one’s job!

No one at any store wants to look down the business end of a firearm.  It doesn’t matter if it is loaded or not.  Lets all do our part for safety and remember to always treat every gun as if it is loaded.  If you absolutely need to show us a firearm away from the firing line we do have a few options.  If the gun that needs to be show is loaded in a holster then take it out onto the range.  There, the firearm can be safely removed from your holster, range bag, or case, and locked with the chamber open.

Accidents happen quickly and no amount of “Sorry I didn’t mean it!” can undo what has been done.  Always follow the 4 Laws of Gun Safety.

Great trigger control for new shooters

 

Many of shooters have wondered “why are my shots low and to the left?”  Well wonder no more.  The root cause of such a problem is caused by improper placement of the index finger on the trigger.  The correct placement of the finger would be the middle of the top section of your index finger.  Try to get it as close to the middle as you can just like this military training photo.

By pulling the trigger with nearly the end of the finger, you make the trigger go straight back.  Using more of the finger will push the whole gun off to the side, thus making your shots not as accurate as they could be.

Do this and your groups will improve.  Try this tip the next time you come into the gun range at H&H Shooting Sports. https://www.hhshootingsports.com/shop/ranges/

 

Fun new targets at the range

It seems like shooters have been blasting away at the same bull’s eyes and silhouettes since forever now.  But thanks to a GunFun Shooting Targets, you can have a choice as to what you put down range!  So next time you go to the range, perhaps for one of our daily range specials, keep your eye’s on the look out for some of their fun targets.

Hostage Crisis.

Push your tactical skills to the max with this target!  It features a Hollywood style situation where any real-life miss would be catastrophic!  It’s best used with a handgun to help you tighten up those groups but since it’s just paper you can use just about any firearm.  Shotguns are unadvised for obvious reasons

 

Vital dude.

Now here’s a great twist on the silhouette.  This great target shows off the skeleton and internal organs of an average male.  This x-ray look helps you to see the actual vital zones of a human attacker.  With this one you don’t have to aim for some arbitrary center but instead you can go for the actual heart, lungs and liver!

 

Sink-a-Sub

This one offers some fun for the whole family.  The sink-a-sub target can be set for any distance to test out your skill.  It’s best paired with an accurate .22LR.  The real skill involved here is making sure that you don’t accidentally hit the water or the wrong sub.  Pull the target all the way to the back for the maximum challenge.  This’ll really make sure your sights are zeroed.

 

What I’ve listed here is not even the full selection.  More can be bought from their website or at H&H Shooting Sports range check in section.  Look for the full color ones on the black shelf and test these fun one’s out at your next range visit!
