This week's Sunday Gunday features Brownells' own Seth B! "When I was younger, I discovered that I loved to shoot trap. Unfortunately, I was terrible at it until given the opportunity to shoot a friend's Ithaca 37 in 20 gauge. Almost instantly, my scores improved tremendously. Now I know that the improvement could be due to many different reasons, but I kept my eyes open for a deal on a Model 37. I found one at a gun show, but it was in rough shape – partially painted, with rust under the paint. The stock also had water stains. Despite its bad condition, I bought it and set about completely refinishing it.
I stained and finished the stock while also removing all of the old metal finish. I then had Paul Jacobson at Jacobson's Gun Center in Story City, IA, do the final metal prep and blue it. These days, the Ithaca comes out on special occasions during pheasant season and I couldn't be happier with it." #sundaygunday #shotgun #ithaca #trapshooting #brownells #merica #igmilitia #scattergun #pheasanthunting
