Re: Yildiz barrel selector switch

It sounds like you might just need more spring pressure on the switch.

CZ Bobwhite is coming back this year. Still gonna have a backward stock, but the new version is supposed to be cheaper.

Re: Binos for turkeys

Depends on where you hunt and how steady your hands. I'm surprised so many choose 10x. I can't hold them still enough without a mount or rest. Guess I'm just too shifty. Also, you may find different binos fit your face and eyes better than others. Trying before buying makes sure they are comfortable...

We have a couple of their O/Us here. If you fire from the left shoulder, like you should :D , having the safety pushed up with the gun held side-to-the-ground selects the upper barrel. If you're backward you might contrive some other memory aid.

Re: 12 Gauge Muzzleloading Pistol

There's a video on youtube where a fella cut down a centerfire shotgun incrementally and chronographed the results. I think you need a longer, single barrel. You've seen the companies selling 14" barrelled pumps and autos these days? BATFE considers them firearms, but not shotguns due to how they ar...

Re: anyone use a meopta reflex sight

1000hr battery life is kinda short if Burris is 5000. Trijicon RMR is a couple years. Shield SIS is also extra long-lived. I was all set to get a Delta Point Pro until I saw a deal to get another FastFire cheap. Of course, I had to send the Fastfire in for service because it was eating batteries. Wa...

Safety location

What's your favorite spot for a gun to have a safety, regardless if it comes that way on a favored gun?

I'm pretty picky about this point, but I'm guessing most people don't care.
