    Any Drilling Users?

    I like a mixed bag of a deer and some big Nevada blue grouse and often hunt with a drilling.

    Are they of any use in NZ?

    As Long as you only hunt Private land they are legal to hunt with.
    Its illegal to take a rimfire or shot gun onto DOC (Public) land because of this they are not very popular nor seen very often

    Evening Lads, "A drilling refers to a combination gun that has three barrels." these could be two rifled and one smooth bore or two smooth bore and one rifled. in NZ we would refer to them as combination guns. I have never heard of anyone hunting with one but seen one at a gun shop.

    Drilling (two smooth and one rifled barrel) and Bockbücksflinte (or "bock" - one smooth and one rifled) are pretty common here. I am looking for one as I often see geese, ducks, pheasants and deer on my preferred spot.

    At the top of the reply box there is little pictures click on the one that looks like a tree in a picture frame and go from there.

    I saw a triplle barreled shot gun the other day. I was expecting to see one rifled barrel but no all 3 appeared to be 12g smooth bore.

    I'd love to have a drilling but they aren't that common in NZ, and those that are here are super expensive. I heard a rumor that Savage may be bringing one out so I hope that's true.

    Would be perfect for pheasant/sambar hunting

    I've got a .577 cal and 28 gauge combination gun, both barrels are rifled, the shotgun rifling is straight to hold the wadded package of shot together as it leaves the barrel, the . 577 is normal twist rifling.
    Boom, cough,cough,cough
