As the story goes, if you pass a background check you can buy as many guns as you like.

I was buying another CG summit and ended up with that gun and an LC Smith Long Range.

First trip to sporting clays course today....

I love the LC Smith, absolutely a joy to shoot. Full choke smoked those clays.

I'm already shooting a subgauge class at the colorado state shoot, maybe I'll add on SxS class.

One issue, on a couple pairs, I bumped the safety back on. Need to watch my grip.

Very Nice! I have a LC Smith Long Range. I also have a set of 28" barrels that were fitted to it. Mine isn't as pretty as yours. It is a pre 1913 gun I inherited from my father. The gunsmith he bought it from said, "you can pick this gun up & kill ducks after everybody else quits shooting!" He told no lie! When I was a kid in the 60's I use to enjoy killing ducks my hunting partners couldn't reach with their 3" magnums. I always shot 2 3/4", 1 1/4 oz. loads. That was a different day with different ammo. I doesn't seem to like modern shells with one piece plastic wads very much, at least with duck size shot in the original 32" barrels. I have been planning to experiment with some bismuth, Nice Shot & ITM that I have & see if I can find something in the way of a custom handload that will restore it to it's former glory!

Very nice. Do you know who did the refinish? The case colors are very Smith appropriate.

I do not know, but as nice of a job they did, maybe the gun store can relay a message to the owner to ask.

Rockett0,

Nice old L.C. Smith Long Rang for sure, glad you like shooting Ducks with it, definitely try the Bismuth it works real well out of my Pigeon Grade L.C. Smith. The shells are not cheap but they work real well.

Nice restoration job!
