    I've heard of them being used for humane dispatch over here in Europe as well.

    In an old German catalogue there was a device called an `EINSTICKLAUFCHEN`.
    My German is very limited but this is basically a small detachable barrel which fits into a shotgun chamber.
    With this device you could convert your S/S shotgun into a combination weapon.

    HWH.

    Not really Eric - such devices have been around for decades in Europe and are used mainly for despatching wounded game. Lothar Walther is one company that produces them along with adapters to allow the shooting of .22lr through .22 centrefire barrels for instance or .32acp through .30 calibre barrels for cheaper target practise.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Nice to see you back up and running Mike - hope all is as well as can be.

    Thanks Eric, can't wait to "go to church". Going to church is my way of saying out shooting.
