    I do not personally own a double ( maybe when I grow up), but I would love to see some pics of some of the ones talked about on here. So ... if you have some pics of yours ... post em' up.

    My friend and author,Cal Pappas has many shown on his website.
    He written a couple of books centered on double bore rifles and the mighty 600 NE.

    Double Rifles

    Jerome, I hope that this is not against the rules here. That website in no way conflicts with this one IMO.

    I want one...I really don't know very much about them though. Jus being honest.
    I am a bow-hunter through and through , but have a gun fetish ( according to my wife ).
    I have been collecting since my teens , but now have the ability ( funds ) to get some of the items on my list that used to be out of reach. The doubles are fascinating ! I am ignorant to them though. I just figured that a good place to start would be looking at what other guys have and like.

    I'd start with a lower cash outlay, BPE (Black Powder Express) rifle and get used to them. They are not like playing with a single tube rifle. A 450 or 500 BPE sounds like it's be too big but they aren't. Get Graeme Wright's book, "Shooting the British Double Rifle" and read thru it a few times cover to cover to get an idea about them.
    They are addictive tough. I just added another one to the stable yesterday. A twin tubed twin set this time.

    As they are the only doubles I have ever shot I've no real basis for comparison, however I like the way they feel / come up to the shoulder

    Being a newbie here, once I've properly figured out how to post pics etc, I'll provide a bit more information on them
