    I've already posted a few threads here but never got around to introducing myself. Oops. Well better late than never. I live in British Columbia and enjoy collecting antiques, including rifles, as well as hunting, fishing, camping, off roading, hiking, gold panning and exploring junk shops and back roads. Just a regular guy. I have two double rifles which is how I found this site. Just learning all about them and plan to do some local hunting when I get some loads worked up for them.

    Hi all. Thanks for the welcomes, including a few fellow BC'ers. In regards to my rifles, I have a Siace Alaska in .45-70 and a Verney - Carron Demas Azur Safari PH Round Body in 450/400 3" NE. Havent had an opportunity to try them yet but I've got to put some loads together first and by the time I've got them done the weather should be a bit nicer for taking them out.

    I knew there was that VC .450/400 floating around in BC for awhile. Possibly the same one.

    I'm sure it's a great looking double!!
