  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • What do we have here?

  • That is an 1892, clay pigeon thrower.

  • RICK: Where did you pick this up at?

  • At an antique store.

  • Columbus, Ohio.

  • All right.

  • And it cocks?

  • Yeah

  • Whoa.

  • Yeah.

  • They didn't have all the safety features back then.

  • [EXPLOSION SOUND]

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • GREG: I'm here at the pawn shop today,

  • to sell my 1892 skeet pigeon shooter.

  • It's spring loaded, it needs no electric or anything,

  • to make it work.

  • I've had this in my collection four or five months.

  • It's time to move it on, and buy some other stuff

  • that I want to buy.

  • RICK: It's in really, really good shape.

  • GREG: Yep.

  • So you have clay pigeons, which are a round disk.

  • Then you have skeets that are a different shape,

  • and people practice with them, for bird shooting.

  • These became really, really popular in like, the 1880s,

  • 1890s.

  • It was like $0.3 a round, so you go buy 100 shotgun shells for 3

  • bucks and shoot all day long.

  • Eventually, these just started turning into competitions.

  • You got a date on it?

  • Like 18--

  • 1982.

  • March the 1st.

  • OK.

  • The Chamberlin, Cartridge and Target Company.

  • Yeah, they were pretty big ammunition manufacturer,

  • way back in the day.

  • I think they primarily made shotgun shells,

  • and therefore, it makes complete sense that they

  • would make a pigeon thrower.

  • OK.

  • And then you would put a piece of cord

  • through here, through the little pulley right here,

  • and you could stand at the side, once it's [INAUDIBLE] down,

  • and throw your pigeons.

  • I've seen things similar online, not in that shape, though.

  • I will give you that.

  • I have never--

  • I mean, this looks like it just came out of the box, that's

  • the incredible part about it.

  • Now, here's the big question.

  • What do you want for it?

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • I'm asking 350 for it.

  • OK.

  • I really, really like it.

  • I'm thinking about this, maybe for myself,

  • because I live off the grid a big part of the year,

  • and this would work for me.

  • It doesn't take any power.

  • I like old stuff.

  • I'll give you 200 bucks.

  • I don't want to do 200.

  • I mean, what's your best price, though?

  • 325?

  • 250.

  • How about meet me-- how about 3?

  • So 275?

  • [LAUGHS] 275 will work.

  • OK.

  • We got a deal, but I have one little caveat.

  • I actually want to take this out and use it, to make sure it

  • takes a modern clay pigeon.

  • No problem.

  • You know where the gun range is at Boulder City?

  • I'll find it.

  • OK.

  • I'll run home, I'll grab a shotgun,

  • and meet you out there like, two hours.

  • That'd be great.

  • I've actually never fired it myself,

  • but I'm hoping it does fire like we think it should,

  • so I can get the 275 for it.

  • Oh, looks like you got it all set up.

  • So well, first thing we need do is test fire the thing,

  • see if I'm going to pay you.

  • OK.

  • [LAUGHS] Uh.

  • No, this is great.

  • OK.

  • We'll give it a shot.

  • OK.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • This goes back.

  • Cam grabs it.

  • All right, so I guess this goes in here.

  • Rope goes to the pulley, give it a shot, and it fires.

  • And then--

  • That ain't good.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Hold on.

  • Let's try it this way.

  • Let's put it where it's all the way back.

  • Maybe now?

  • Because right now I'm not going to pay anything for it.

  • [LAUGHS] And then, guy with a shotgun goes-- pull.

  • And then you pull.

  • Wow.

  • Yeah.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • You wouldn't think it would go that far.

  • I wonder if this is legal in a Frisbee competition.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • So I guess I'm gonna pay you your money, but you know,

  • let's see if I could actually shoot one.

  • OK.

  • Do I getting extra money if you miss?

  • No, because I probably will.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • Here we go.

  • Pull.

  • [GUNFIRE]

  • Yeah.

  • Did I hit it?

  • You didn't hit it, but it works.

  • That's all I was calling you out for.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • All right.

  • Pull.

  • [GUNFIRE]

  • Pull.

  • [GUNFIRE]

  • Pull.

  • [GUNFIRE]

  • Yeah.

  • [GUNFIRE]

  • Yeah.

  • You got that part.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • OK, man.

  • 275 bucks.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • This has been a blast.

  • I think it's absolutely cool.

  • It's an incredible 130-year-old gadget.

  • [LAUGHS] Just unbolt it, bring back to the shop.

  • I'll get you paid.

  • Get it done.

  • All right, cool man.

  • It's an amazing day.
