Shotgun Valet



Even Louis Winthorp,III liked messing around with Shotguns. He however, had the advantage of having his Valet, Coleman, assist in cleaning and organizing his double guns. Mr. Winthorp was not preparing for a day afield, he was getting locked and loaded in preparation for dispatching a fusillade into the respective patellas of Randolph and Mortimer Duke.
When the seasons change and I have to go about cleaning and storing some of my guns, I certainly could use a Coleman-type to help. I suppose I will have to settle for my Son's assistance. We see Louis in possession of what appears to be 3 shotguns: Two over/unders and a side-by-side. Well done Louie...

I love that film! Yes, I could use a Coleman for so many things around the house.

Oh I love that movie. So, so entertaining. That is a good father/son activity, by the way. In my opinion anyway! xoxo

Love this movie. A Philly classic.

Hell, I don't want an assistant... I enjoy cleanin' mine too much to share the fun!

My father always had a gun valet, a caddy, a net-holding trout-lander, and someone to start the hunting cabin's stove everyday before dawn. Me.

YWP-Yes...my son has the same burden
Bear-I enjoy it sometimes as well..but those waterfowling pieces get particularly filthy.
Prep,KSA,JMW & KSB-Yes it is a wonderful movie that we can all watch over and over and still get a luagh...and that is invaluable.
