    Howdy Ljutic fans,

    I am inviting you to visit the Ljutic page on Facebook. IT IS NOT OFFICIALLY ENDORSED BY LJUTIC LLC. It has an emphasis on the historical beginnings of the company and several photos of very early 1964 era Mono-Guns, along with other unusual Ljutic guns. Many ATA Trapshooting Hall of Fame inductees are presented who shot the signature Ljutic Mono-Gun, and much, much more! The link is posted below. I'll be look'n for you and know you will enjoy this page!

    Kim;

    Can you post a link? The Ljutic I found is from Serbia and has a picture of a woman standing in front of a mobile home trailer holding a rifle.

    Andy,

    Forgive me for not posting the link! I have edited my original message to include it. That woman in Serbia holding the rifle suggests there is a genetic predisposition to handling firearms in the Ljutic Family!

    Take care,

    Kim Z.

    I was wondering where did you get the picture of Ljutic #425 from? I owned that gun several years ago. Broke my first 25 straight with it. But like many trapshooters continued the search for my holy grail gun. I also saw Stainless Ljutic #234 that I owned for a short period of time. Nice memories.

    1. Thanks Mr. Cuban Cigar for the compliment. I'm having a blast working on these pages!

    2. Hi John Loves to Shoot: I believe I copied the photo of your Ljutic Mono, serial #425, from shotgunworld.com., but I wouldn't bet my life on it! Perhaps it was posted on Bing Images. Sorry I can't be more specific. I have copied a large amount of photos from different sources. Have you found your Holy Grail? What are you shooting these days?

    3. Bucko, I understand that some of us oldtimers have nothing to do with Facebook. I suggest you hook up with a friend/younger person who will set up a Facebook view of the Ljutic page. I promise you won't be sorry!

    Kim Z.,

    Enjoyed the postings here and on Facebook. Though I am not a registered facebook user/subscriber, I was able to view them.

    Currently shooting a Kolar T/S with S3 stock and high rib. I'm coming into it but not sure its the grail. Always have my eyes open for a good Ljutic. I have to say the two Ljutics that I owned were probably the easiest guns for me to pick up and break a good scores with right out of the box. I didn't think they had much of a learing curve other than getting use to the quick lock time.

    Its pretty interesting to see the way ladies dress for shooting in the late 60's and early 70's. Got give credit to Punkin Flock for her apparel, looks like she knew how to accessorize. Had to appreciate Mary Sullivan shooting in heels, unless that was just for the photo. In the opposite of what Forrest Gump would say . . . those don't look like comfortable shoes, especially to shoot 200 singles or 100 caps in.

    Perhaps, but definately not in open toe shoes, with my feet and toes. I have to think of the other shooters and the visual aesthetics of the range. You wouldn't be pulling an offending weed, you want to lop off my offending toes. :)

    By the way I was over to Eastern Hills for the 50 bird on the 4th Friday in February and March. Just missed you in Feb. and I don't think you were there in March. We're gonna have to cross paths sometime and shoot a round or the bull. You and the Eastern Hills bunch are always welcome to head west to Coonhunters.

    Kim, this may be old school, but have you considered publishing a book regarding the history and firearms of Ljutic??

    3357 & Greevesman: I would love to do a book!

    Winchester 21: When I click the link from my computer, it takes me to the Ljutic page on Facebook. Try going on Facebook and type "Ljutic" in the search box. Click, and a drop-down of choices will show. Click on the thumbnail with the photo of a Ljutic Mono-Gun receiver. It should take you to the page. Let me know if this works for you.
