Re: sling

The muzzle end of the sling below has an opening along the rib that allows a clear picture. I use one for woodcock hunting on a gun that doesn't have sling fittings. It's made of spring steel covered with leather. https://www.connecticutshotgun.com/product/gamekeeper-leather-shotgun-slings/ [IMbyG]...

Re: Old SxS

Got a couple old single shots, i swear i'm going take to the woods, but it's hard to leave one of the Rem short barreled sp's at home. Maybe this year will be the year. I switched over from pump and auto over to single-shots a half dozen seasons ago and I don't regret the decision. A single-shot on...

Re: Cast Iron Cooking

The secret to cooking scallops is to find "dry packed" versus "wet packed". Wet packed are soaked in a phosphate solution to add water weight and one can never get a crust on the outside as it continues to ooze water as opposed to "dry packed" that aren't in a solution. Gil

Re: Nickel plated lead

Decades ago, I got my hands on some nickle-plated shot from Italy and compared patterns between it and Winchester Lubaloy copper-plated shot, same size, and the Italian shot out patterned the Winchester shot by a noticeable difference. I don't know if it was the nickle plating that made the differen...

I think it's a new GMC Jimmy. He eventually bought Chevys. My daughter hijacked the 42 year-old Made in Canada Woods down jacket I'm wearing. She gets compliments in Brooklyn. "Where did that jacket come from??" Gil

Re: Anbody Remember When

When I first started, it was off the shelf for my 2.75" chambered Ithaca M37 choked by Stan Baker. Not too long after that we started testing handloads for our 10 gauge SxS's. 1980-81 best I recall. Stan, Bill and I blew out the center of the plywood pattern board at a local skeet range comparing lo...

Re: Federal TSS

Speaking of commercially available ammo, I see where Nitro has solved a problem that didn't exist by coating its TSS with a "special" coating to prevent barrel "scoring". Gil

Re: Trumpet lip stops

You can buy a box of hard rubber faucet washers at Home Depot for a couple of bucks. Not as long as rubber stoppers, but pre-drilled and work (and look) just fine as lip stops. Gil

Re: Yildiz 410 finally complete

You let the child shoot 2.5" loads to familiarize him with the gun. In the turkey woods, the big load. He won't know the difference.
It's a light gun and a heavy load. You can't avoid physics, but it won't hurt him. You can always put a Limbsaver pad on it if you think it's too much.

Other than 2shooters two Yildie .410 single-shots, you won't see prettier wood on a NIB gun costing under $130.

Re: 410 test

I took possession of that gun (Yildiz single-shot) yesterday and no one is going to cut that barrel. ;) I didn't load the shells he used, but I assume it's the same powder I use. In looking at a shotgun powder burn rate chart of about 150 powders, the powder is somewhere in the middle. I don't recog...

Re: Managing the turkeys on my new land

As has been pointed out, your population is going to be dependent on what your neighbors do regarding planting or baiting during the season. Based on your description of pines vs. hardwood, you won't see a shift off the property because of acorns rotting late winter early spring. Food is always the ...

Re: Drill press or shot shell reloading press?

It's hard to beat a vintage style hand cranked roll crimper for ease of use and set up. A MEC type press requires fiddling around with the stages to insure proper height for the load intended. A hand cranked crimper self adjusts to the load intended. Compact storage compared to a drill press or leve...

Re: Ghost Chips HOT!

I love hot peppers, but ghost peppers, no. Those are "stunt pepper chips". Go to youtube to see the effects of folks eating ghost peppers. One of the reported side effects of eating ghost peppers is diarrhea or more appropriate, flamearrhea.
