1st, I’m new to this forum and to the IAA but I have been ‘acquiring’ or hoarding old, obsolete and unique ammo for some time now. Shotshells and their boxes have my greatest interest.
I am the 3rd generation to own and use a shooting box made from an old wooden shell case (box) for Black Shells. I know little to nothing about the product except my Grandfather used them prior to WWII in his favorite game sport, dove shooting, with an L.C.Smith. Several of these boxes were made into shooting boxes by hinging, padding and covering the lid, then installing a strap, then distributed amongst his cronnies that he shot with.
I have the box and I have the gun but I do not have any of the shells or boxes (the paper boxes) nor do I recall ever seeing any. I’m not certain if the boxes were 1 piece or 2. The Black Shells by Klinect sounds like something I would like to have, is it still available? Any insight into Black Shells that might have gone into this case would be appreciated.
This is the site I have been looking forward to finding! I have tons of questions but I’ll try to spread them out over a decade or 2.
