    I collect an odd model, the Browning Double Automatic. It is not odd to me, but the general public has always found them "not normal".

    Sorry, but my "banana" gun is locked away in the back of the safe. I'm waiting for the price of these guns to skyrocket so I can find it a new home.

    I would say the 1911 is odd. Would like to see your collection.

    I have a Win. model '97 that was used as a bank guard gun for a bank I worked for years ago. It was covered with paint etc. when I bought it in 1975 for $75.00. It is marked "Property of The Fulton County Bankers Assn." on the stock. Locally I'm sure it has some additonal value. I was able to clean it up and not remove much of the orignal finish.

    If not limited to just shotguns, my dad has a jailers key that had a small bore down the center of the shank and a hemp fuse that was always lit on a very crude S shaped trigger/hammer. It is very old, I know my dad has had it for over 60 years. Would not seem practical to me, but I guess there was a use and need for it at one time.

    Big M........I have 16ga Darne. Funky looking thing with the breech sliding back to reload. Been thinking of selling it, but not sure what it is worth. Not one of the things you see in gun value books. French were always wierd in their gun designs.

    Oh yeah, the knurled barrel, which you grabbed and either pulled back or pushed the barrel into the receiver to cock the action.

    The French designed guns for looks knowing they would never used for defense purposes, they were also made durable being as they usually hit the ground when they surrender ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I have a particularly odd trap gun. Sometimes it shoots all the birds, and then for no apparent reason, it will miss as many as 5 or 6 out of 25. Sometimes on the same day.

    Is that odd or what???

    Would my "Long Tom" 36" barrel 12 ga single shot be an odd gun?
