Re: Let the Fun Begin!

LOL...yeah, right now, toes, fingers, and noses aren't safe either! 8 years ago when I got my first Britt, Abby, there was a published estimate of damage done by a chewing dog that spends time in the house. The average was $750. I think we exceeded that. Also, think twice about rawhide toys. I've h...

He paid the price for not accepting responsibility. What was he thinking? He wasn't penalized for exercising his right to trial by jury, he just wasn't rewarded for accepting responsibility by pleading guilty. Not the first time I've seen idiots pay the price for thinking they can game a jury. The s...

Re: Making a bamboo fly rod

Thanks, Fellas. The rod is 7'9" for a 5 weight line. I had considered making an 8' for 8 wt saltwater, but the plan is for this rod to eventually go to my daughter who also loves to fly fish for trout and she lives in NY. As I've noted, I've had all but a few items needed to make them here at home b...

Here's close-up of the cut-off piece between the rod sections. It's from the butt section and is about .375" across the flats. The darkerpower fibers are in about an 1/8" from the outside inwards. Every effort is made not to compromise or thin the outer portion. The white area is the pith which adds...

Your mobile home set up in the truck looks very efficient.

Glad that worked out for you. Chris Batha, a noted shooting coach, recommends this simple exercise using your gun and a mirror to practice consistent shotgun mounting and insuring the gun is pointed correctly:

Re: Yildiz sight plane

When you shim an auto's stock at the stock head, it moves the angle of the stock's comb up or down depending on size of shim. Unless you shoot with your head off the comb, which was done a 100 years ago when shotguns had 3" drop, I don't see how altering the angle of the butt plate would affect your...

That's pretty good for a three man hunt. howl, I'm probably the worst shot in the group of guys I hunt dove with. These fellows use .410, 28's and a few of them use 12 gauges. I shoot 20 or 16. They all hunt every few years in Argentina which will make most anyone a great dove shot. A week of dove h...

Re: Stevens 220A 20 ga, 2-3/4", 28" fixed full, new loads

Apparently Savage made several design changes during the time it made the break action 220. On my 220A, the forend is attached to the barrel with a screw and it has a larger trigger guard than on my .410 220B and 16 ga. 220D. The 220 is truly hammerless; it's not just an internal hammer striking a t...
