My grandfather died just after fighting in the battle of the bulge. My father was in the South Pacific fighting the other side of the war. I recently became owner of the 12 guage LC Smith that was purchased by my Grandfather and handed down to his son. My Dad said I should sell it and buy an autoloader for my son to hunt with. That's not going to happen! I don't know much about the gun though. When I plug the serial number into the manufacturing date finder at http://www.lcsmith.org/serial.php it comes up with 1929 but that is without the FW at the beginning. Is this accurate? The shotgun is sound, has dual triggers and a 3 position safety. I am interested in shooting it at some clays.... Are today's target rounds appropriate? This is a field grade gun.
