CZ Bobwhite is back 2019

Yeah, they have a new generation coming out. It will be all black chrome and with gauge specific frames. The stock will still be bent backwards. FYI.

Re: Altering POI (not with adjustable sight)

If it had no sentimental value, I'd bend it myself. As it does, I suggest having it threaded for chokes.

I go small. I see a smear when the brightness is high, but it's a smaller smear. There's really no substitute for looking at them in person.

If it's open, it depends on your attention span. A half hour would do for those of us who...hey is that a butterfly? Where'd a butterfly come from this time of year?

Re: Temperature?

Powder burn rates vary. Just look down the bore on a cold foggy morning versus a hot dry afternoon. That's my reason for wanting an overkill pattern further than I will shoot.

Re: Weaver vs. Vortex opinions?

Japanese made Weavers are nicer scopes. The last one I got was made in Japan, but things change. Ring height depends on you. I used to have all my scopes as low as possible, but have had to move to medium height over the past few years to get a good sight picture. This is due to middle-aged eyes and...

Re: Mounting a FF3

I would say mount on the barrel as far back as possible without being at the balance point where you carry it.

Re: Best reflex sight

Not exactly the same, but Eotechs have a reputation for still working after having been practically destroyed. I vote Leupold with triangle reticle, but Trijicons are a close second. I was going to get a Leupold myself, but I found a way to get a Fastfire III for $74. They're good enough. For a kid,...

Re: Mossberg 935

I'd rate them as fair. Some of the prices on them would get you into a higher quality gun, but some of them go for cheap enough, too. If you want a relatively soft shooter for use with lead shells, and don't hunt turkeys like it is your job, it's not a bad choice. I wore one out. The trigger group w...

Re: Sights on Yildiz .410 Single

Put the barrel in the fork of a tree. Flex slightly in the direction you want the pattern to go.

I have not actually done this myself. :thumbup:

Re: beretta silver pigeon 1 20 ga

No experience here. Best guess on short route would be Aimpoint S1, Federal TSS and ask SumToy about chokes.

Agree 1 5/8 is nuts to shoot. I've decided to disassemble mine and go lighter. I expect 1 1/4oz to do anything I want a turkey gun to do.

I am having trouble figuring what fits what. I was going to get a Leupold Deltapoint Pro, but it looks like Leupold changed the footprint to their own instead of fitting the Jpoint footprint like the original Deltapoint did. Anybody seen a compatibility list?

Sq. tend to den in the same places turkeys roost and mushrooms grow. If y'all see any of these in the woods, don't leave them there! 'cept the dog. I'd leave Buck alone.

Re: Air rifle recommendations for my soon to be 4 year old

The Red Ryder has a heavy spring to return the trigger to the reset position. If you disconnect it the trigger is much easier to pull. The downside is you sometimes have to push the trigger back to reset it. Every kid should have one. The Aguila Super Colibri .22 rimfire ammo is stopped by a pellet ...
