Gannochy Loader x 100
On a double gun day a gannochy in 100 or 50 size will certainly give you more shooting. Why ? – because each drive your loader starts with 100 or 50 cartridges all facing the right way up with just sufficient room between them to take one or two at a time and loading the gun is so easy as the breech of the empty gun is six inches away from the Gannochy, this hangs down in front of him at waist level on the adjustable strap.
The gannochy lid is detachable and when loading I often take it off to improve mobility, maximum loading efficiency will be achieved by the loader varying from where he takes his cartridges. If in a flush then he should take them from the top two rows, if the shooting is spaced then from lower down. He should get into the habit of moving cartridges up into the top two rows where they are not pushed fully down into their clips, but left proud with half of their length protruding, for easy grabbing.
Loaders scratching the hand of gun stocks with the cartridge heads can be a source of irritation to some guns, indeed some guns forbid their loaders to use this practice, which is a shame as most loaders take pride in their swiftness.
By using a gannochy it is possible to ask your loader to avoid holding 4 cartridges between the fingers of his right hand and load straight from the gannochy. This will only slightly reduce efficiency, but not much and you will not cringe when you watch a large hand rubbing the rims of 4 cartridges around stocks of much beauty and considerable value.
If your loader does not watch the birds and he is using a GANNOCHY his Gentleman will never have to wait for a gun.
Made in either Light or Dark Sedgewicks Havana brown and in either 12 or 20 bore.
Initials or the name of a property are blocked on the front of the gannochy lid, we have copied the exact shape of the original gannochy tooling for the shape of the leather block which bears the initials.
Please select your webbing strap from the webbing board and indicate which one by the number of the row and number in from the left. Ie R4 x 1 is dark blue, I suggest only 3″ wide webbing for a 100 size gannochy.
