I had the privilege of shooting a goose with a Tolley double 8 the other morning. A good friend of mine has a fantastic collection of big bore shotguns, mostly Tolleys. I only bagged a single goose but it's always great getting out with an old fowling piece.

Man, that is cool. My dad has an old 8 bore with Damascus barrels and it just stays in the safe.

I used to have a friend ( or rather , a friend of a friend ) based in Great Britain , by the name of Mr. Alan Myers . He used to load custom 8 bore ammunition ( and even 4 bore ammunition ) and actually built countless 8 bore ( and 4 bore ) double barreled shotguns ( as well as a few smoothbore ball guns ) . As of 2018 , he was still quite active . However , the last I had heard of him ; he was diagnosed with cancer and sold all of his equipment .

Reading your post , suddenly reminded me of old Alan .

Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
