Re: TSS in older guns?

Savage break action 220's are a popular shotgun in subgauges to rig out for TSS. What you have would be fine. Gil

Re: Cool Gloves

Last few years I've kept gloves in pocket to keep other stuff from falling out. I got tired of taking them off to use my rivercane yelpers so I just stopped wearing them. It's also easier to nose pick without gloves on, although when I wore gloves I cut off the trigger finger tip of the glove but th...

Re: Proud American

Truly sacred ground with fewer and fewer of those who survived the horror still living today as the years go by. A few decades ago when my youngest brother-in-law was bicycling France, he had been advised before he left Georgia for the trip to tell locals he was Canadian rather than American because...

Re: Mouth Calls vs Friction Calls and Trumpet style calls

Past few years my main calls are mouth and rivercane callers. It's been over a handful of years that I carried a box religiously although for old times sake, I drag out one of them a few times a year. I also carry a turtle shell slate, but rely on the mouth and rivercane callers mostly. I don't know...

Re: Automatic safety on gun

Some of my doubles have them; some don't. With a tang mounted safety, it becomes second nature to push it off and pick a trigger. It makes no difference to me whether it's auto or not. Gil

Re: Which 28?

As has been stated, it would be hard to top a CZ Bobwhite 28 ga. At 5 lbs., 3 oz. and with double triggers and well regulated barrels according to those that shoot one. I am a big fan of doubles for bird hunting and won't buy one with a single trigger. The exception is a Remington 3200 o/u with a si...

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

three weeks ago a Florida woman was attacked and killed by a 12' gator. Her arm was found inside the gator. One of her dogs was bitten.

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

Here in the lowcountry we have sand gnats. "Flying teeth" and will bite the bejeebers out you. They come out when the temps are perfect in the spring and fall. Anywhere from high 60s to low 70s. Gil

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

turkeybuster was engaged in his pre-dawn daily devotional in the bushes near a lowcountry river when he heard what he thought was a raccoon walking through the nearby brush. It was a big gator. The sight of the gator sped up the "devotional" and TB finished quickly and got out fast.

Re: deep cleaning and polishing.

Better is the enemy of good enough. Honing removes metal and that metal could be the thin chrome lining that protects the bore from worse problems than a pattern that is good enough. Gil

Re: 410 Yildiz

The Yildiz .410 single shot is marked "TK-36". The design is copied from the old Beretta 412 series which has been out of production for decades. Midland Company currently makes an all steel blued model for slightly more cost. It is blued and several ounces under 5 lbs. The Yildiz has an anodized al...

I know granddads and at least one great granddad that shoot that gun, too. What were the 10" ring counts? Which load--13/16 oz. or 370 grains? Looks good!

Re: Look but don't touch!

On a dove field I hunt there is an old two wire transmission line running along the field. There have been occasions when the weight of hundreds of dove sitting on the top wire grounds to the bottom wire and there have been as many as a dozen dove killed at one time. Gil

Re: Anyone using Federal TSS

If you shoot a 12 and adhere in spirit and in practice to 40 yards, lead is good enough. If you want to carry a lighter gun, which means a smaller gauge and lighter loads, TSS is the way to go.

Re: Who hunts with a double?

Back in the day when 10 gauge was the rage, I had two doubles in 10 ga. One was a 1938-9 Ithaca NID 3.5" and the other was a Spanish gun in the same chamber length. Both were 32". I still have the Ithaca after trading back for it about 5 years ago my SBE to the man I sold it to over 30 years ago. MI...
