"Tater Tree" is an all time firing range favorite. It consists of a five foot 2x6 for the "tree" with some finishing nails driven into it on the front and both sides. Potatoes are stabbed on the nails and you have a great bunch of "splatter" targets ready to go. A potato will blow into a million pieces with a well placed shot from a .22. From a larger caliber.....well, it just gets better.
Lever Action Shotguns: 1887 - John Moses Browning, the Da Vinci of small arms development, was doing some work for Winchester. At the time, that company was primarily known for lever action rifles but, they wanted to break into the shotgun market and approached Browning to design one. He was allowed to use any action he wanted—as long as it was lever.
