    Well guys...some of you may have followed my earlier post about My Heym 88 PH being on layway. Well..after nine months and ten days she's mine. A 450/400 NE. Please don't take this as boasting. I just wanted to share my dream gun with you guys. Enjoy the pics if I can get them to show. heym 004.jpg heym 005.jpg heym 006.jpg heym 003.jpg

    Congrats Heym88.
    The Heym is an exceptionally well made double,
    the 450/400 versatile and effective.

    I know you will have much fun with this gun and create many lifelong memories.

    Good luck, good hunting and straight shooting.

    Paul.

    good to see you have finally got your hands on your double. nice bit of wood. just remember if you are married dont take it to bed with you, if you arent then then its acceptable for the first week, but after that time get some slight self control and just prop it by the bed......:D
