    Me (age 12) in the middle. My dad on the right and a friend on the left. My gun is a Sears Ted Williams Model 21 20ga pump. The friend is using a Savage .22/.410 over under.


    We were out by Randsburg Calfornia.

    Love those old pictures.

    Just a few miles east of your pics at Fort Irwin, I spent time helping to train National Guardsmen. Christ that was a hot place, and freezing cold at night. LOL

    That wouldn't happen to be just north of lancaster near Jawbone canyon would it? I hunted there a lot as a kid and still do now.

    Looks like the El Paso Mtns. in the background somewhat near Garlock, east of Koehn Dry Lake. Near "Whitey's Wash" and Government Peak. Burro Schmidt's Mine in the hills in the background too????

    Ah memories, anybody here also remember Tokiwa's back in the day?

    Rick; Not sure what the car was.

    It belonged to my dads friend who drove.

    Gees we sure had a good time on those desert trips.

    The 20ga shells I used were put together with a Lee Loader...Used a bathroom scale for the wad pressure with those old Herters over powder card wads and 3/8th inch felt wads.

    Sometimes i would get the shot height wrong and shot would spill out the of the shell...But a plug of bar soap would fix that...Wonderful memories
