Have the stock 50 THE 28-GAUGE RENAISSANCE made or altered to fit you, and have the barrels at least 28 inches, longer if you can. Sounds like heresy, I know, given the gospel as it has been writ for the past 50 years, but it's the straight skinny from somebody who's been there and back. My favorite 28-gauge, which is well on its way to becoming my favorite game gun, is a round-body sidelock ejector that Arrieta built for me a couple of years ago. It has a 1 5 Y4-inch stock, 29-inch barrels, and weighs six pounds-and I'll bet it against all the stray feathers and brush chaff in your game pouch that if you swung it a couple of times you'd want to shoot it, and if you shot it, you'd love it.

Besides the cocking concept, which in one form or another is the world­ standard approach, the Anson & Deeley action is also notable in that it was the first example of what we now k now as the boxlock gun-a form in which the lock parts are fastened to the gun's frame rather than mounted on re­ movable sideplates. Not all subsequent boxlocks are true Anson & Deeley type, strictly speaking, but the Anson & Deeley is where they all began. The same cocking system works equally well for sidelock guns, and what now is the world-standard sidelock action was developed in the 1 880s and '90s by Henry Holland, as the Holland & Holland Royal Model side-by­ side.

I wish it had a tang safety, partly because clicking a thumb-piece is for me an unconscious element in swinging and mounting a gun, and 27 SHOTGUNS & SHOOTING THREE partly because a mechanical safety is yet one more layer of protection against firing an accidental shot. But relying upon any mechanical system to the extent of ignoring the muzzles is a ticket to catastrophe. Control of the muzzles is control of safety. In some ways, a hammer gun is safer than a hammerless. You can tell at a glance whether a hammer gun is cocked; with a hammerless gun, you have to assume that it's cocked any time the action is closed.
