Bird Dogs Afield is brought to you in part by the following sponsor:
Bird Dogs Aﬁeld TV is proud to welcome Merkel (www.merkel-usa.com) shotguns as a sponsor. Merkel shotguns, imported to the USA by Steyr Arms (www.steyrarms.com), has been producing German Best guns since the late 1800s. Based in Suhl, Germany, Merkel is the only gun manufacturer in the world to produce side-lock shotguns completely in-house. Their latest side by side is the 40E. Light and modestly dressed to provide everything you need and nothing you don’t, the 40E sets a new standard in terms of responsiveness. Weighing in at approximately 6.2 pounds, the new 40E is available in 12-and 20-gauge with either double triggers or single-selective trigger and the choice of a straight, English style stock or a pistol grip stock. A 28-gauge is available in limited quantities. Paul Fuller, host and producer of Bird Dogs Aﬁeld TV and long-time Merkel user, states: The 40E provides shooters an opportunity to move-up to a best quality shotgun at an affordable price.
