Very cool, and another chance to see Wyosmith's gorgeous work.

Too much gun for me as a .45-70 Contender is too much for me, other than the 405 gr popgun loads.

I've had a hard time finding a 2-bore also throughout history, though many say they existed. I guess it's possible any 2-bore used was a deck-mounted punt gun for professional fowl hunting. I certainly know of nobody that would be eager to fire one from the shoulder, considering the punishment 4-bores were capable of dishing out.
