If not-so-gentle treatment of a double gun makes you cringe, stay far, far away from a cowboy action shooting match.
The most coveted doubles are Browning BSS and SKBs. Cowboys buy 'em, bob 'em, and gut 'em (polish the insides, ease the springs and funnel out the chamber mouths). Then they slam them open and closed, and throw them down when we're done.
Enough to make a bird hunter cry.
