Very beautiful, interesting shotgun there. That retractable sling is a very cool feature I've never seen before. Do you ever shoot it? If so how's it shoot?

Very interesting gun. Do you know how long they were in production?

Try posting this over on www.doublegunshop.com/BBS There are a number of "Ideal" enthusiasts over there who would enjoy it. One member there, who goes by the tag of "JayCee" lives in Santiago, Chile and is an IDeal collector and enthusiast and hunts there with several.

Did anybody know that CA's state bird, the "California Quail" was a very successful transplant to Chile? They hunt them a lot.
