Re: How did you find LC Smith
I first got interested in SxS shotguns because of the traditional look and feel. Although my father only ever used a single Remington 870 Wingmaster, he longed for an old SxS before his young death at 45 years. In 2010 or 2011 I picked up a 16 ga. Lefever Nitro Special at a pawn shop for cheap, using it for a year, but later found a LCS 12 ga field grade, which was amazingly well balanced and better fit me than any previous shot gun. I haven’t looked back since. I now have 6 Elsie’s in 10ga (1), 12ga (4) and 20ga (1), three have hammers with twist or Damascus barrels. Only 2 are not considered “field” grades.
The LCSCA has been wonderful and the assistance of many of its members on the forum and in person has been both warm and collegial. I have devoured every issue of the journal and picked up a few of the LC Smith specific books. I have even come to enjoy working on these old guns myself, despite my lack of skill and experience. Great help has been provided by David W, Mike H, Tom G, Drew H, Jent M, Mike N and Mark R.
