Evans Cross-eyed Side-by-Side Shotgun at the National Firearms Museum on NRAblog

For more than a month now, NRANews has been rummaging around in the NRA National Firearms Museum's vault.

Nothing really, until you put him out on the shotgun range and find out that he's also right handed. That can be quite the obstacle when you're trying to target clays as they buzz across the sky. That's where the Winchester 21 comes into play.

This particular Winchester is built specifically for those who are left-eye/right-hand dominant. With this shotgun, the shooter can easily mount the gun and fire without any corrections. And if you'd see Phil wield one of these babies on the range, you'd see what a difference it can make.
