Never seen a "Single shot" lever action before. Whats the lever for if it only holds one shot?

Thanks to our guns laws it was not a AK47 that was stolen.

Must have ment the little lever you push with your thumb, to open a single shot, "hinge break" style of single shot, shot gun.
Was the owner charged for not having the gun in a lockup or did they steal that too.

Could have been something like an Ithaca Model 66 as well, that's a lever action single shot.

They do make a 410 lever action. Here a site to browse.

The marlin 410 lever action is not a single shot , it has a 4 shot tube magazine.

Whether or not the gun was in a lock up is immaterial. the door was kicked in. the house was broken into. Quit blaming the victim.
cashcab 12/27/2012 10:45:31 AM Report

nathansauve is right though. there is an ithica model 66 that is a single shot shot gun with a rifled barrel and sights. More accurate for shooting slugs. Not many of these guns around though, I wouldn't think.
cashcab 12/27/2012 10:52:44 AM Report

to sweet. I was not blaming the victim for any thing. All I was wondering was if the gun owner was charged for unsafe storage of a fire arm. It doesn't matter if his door was kicked in or not. If the gun wasn't in a gun safe...doesn't matter what you say on this site, somebody will always find fault in it.

FYI, the gun doesn't need to be in a safe. He could have had a trigger lock on it and left it on his kitchen counter and it would have been perfectly fine.

To cashcab

Where does it say anywhere that the rifle was not stored properly?
CrankxGirl 12/27/2012 1:45:01 PM Report

Where does it say anywhere that it was? What a silly question. That is an important piece of info.

"thanks to gun laws it wasnt an AK47??"

are you serious???

guns dont kill people, f'd up people kill people! Gun control is NOT the answer!!
j.r.98 12/27/2012 7:50:12 PM Report

This may be a "Rossi" firearm. Rossi Rio grande, l have one and it does not have the name on it. This is typically a "youngsters starter gun". fast handling and very reliable. Having a trigger lock is the law. You then can place it anywhere in your home you wish to.
syndi 12/27/2012 11:37:51 PM Report

Out of all of these comments .... does it not frighten anyone that these things are being stolen whether they are in lock up or under a bed? It scares the hell out of me to know how dangerous these little bas@#$ds are that are doing this to us.
goldenvehicle 12/28/2012 4:50:44 AM Report

What scares me, is the ignorance of the sheaple of the community that whould give up all freedoms and rights,because there scared, all the while attacking the people who fight for our freedoms and rights, and not addressing the real problems.
what would you suggest, we all lock our self in our homes and dont go outside,and compleatly shut down civilisation as we know it until all the bad guys go away.
People stop blaming law abiding people, and start holding criminals accountable so we can have our lives back.
osirisptah 12/28/2012 9:58:29 AM Report

@ j.r.98 - Trigger locks are not the law. The law is that the firearm must be rendered inoperable. The easiest way of doing that is to use a trigger lock, but having one isn't the 'law'. An exception to this is to store your firearm in an approved storage container or room not easily opened or broken into.
No fault of your own - but ignorance is one of the bigger problems I see people in Canada have with firearms. Educate people better and we will have less of these issues.
