The world’s shot-gun record on double targets has recently been broken by a single-trigger gun. At the Rocky Mountain Handicap, Denver, Colorado. September 10-14, the phenomenal score of 96 Out of 50 Pairs of Targets was made by William Ridley, an Iowa sportsman. Mr. Ridley used an L C. Smith Gun equipped with the Hunter One-Trigger.
So many single trigger inventions have; failed, that many shooters have grown skeptical as to the possibility of a successful single trigger. This latest victory of the Hunter One-Trigger will convince more men than ever that it is a big success and will improve any shooter’s score.
The Smith Gun with the Hunter One-Trigger is "two guns in one," ready to meet every requirement of field, blind or trap. This invention represents the solution of just one shot-gun problem. The Smith Gun embodies solutions of every shortcoming which has hitherto baffled gun makers. It represents twenty-two years of inventions, precise workmanship, and experience of six gun experts the six Hunter Brothers whose purpose has been concentrated on the elimination of shotgun failings, on making the Smith Gun a gun with NO SHORTCOMINGS.

“Great Shot-Gun Problems Solved”
NO shot-gun has yet shown a vital failing which the maker did not know was there.
But the fault was there only be cause the maker did not know how to get rid of it.
Of late years shot-gun makers have been so eager for novel features to compete with each other, that they have devoted their entire efforts to perfecting and introducing such features whose actual value is often trivial. The makers of the L.C. Smith Guns have worked from a different point of view. For the past 22 years they have concentrated all efforts on the purpose to eliminate short comings, rather than to add merely novel features.
The New Book of Smith Guns will show you how the old shortcomings have been eliminated, one by one. It will show you how loss of aim from fumbling for the trigger has been eliminated by the successful Hunter One-Trigger (which recently broke the world’s record on double targets) How inaccessibility of working parts has been eliminated by the Smith One-Screw Access. How shooting loose has been eliminated by the Smith Rotary Bolt, which takes up wear in all directions.
Don’t think of buying a gun until you’ve read this book. It’s free.
Brimful of valuable gun information, tables, charts, etc. Colored plates of fine shot-guns from $25 net to $1500 list.
