Re: Blackhawk Tactical?

I have a Knoxx which is the old name of the same stock. It works as advertised. I had it on my Mossy Super Bantam, but took it off and put it back on my 835. It adds over a half pound or more to the weight of the gun. I didn't need it on the SB, but it sure does help on the 835. To paraphrase the la...

Re: Outdoor Shows

Hook and bullet shows don't interest me like they used to. I don't remember which show it was, but I watched the "star" carry a shotgun like a brief case and he "painted" his hunting party with the barrel enough to make me want to duck under the couch. When the kids were young, I'd get up early on S...

Re: How many turkeys have you...

I've seen 3. Most notable was about 20 years ago one winter when I saw fresh killed hen along a state road at dusk. I was with my family. I stopped, examined the bird and it was still warm and no rigor. Jenny rode home with us for supper. The kids loved it. Wife not too wild about serving road kill.

Re: Choke Tubes

The last two guns I've bought I 've been happy with Sumtoy. I went to his shop, explained what I was looking for and watched him build several. I want a hunting choke and not just a paper-puncher. A dense 10" ring is nice, but I want as many in the 10"-20" ring as are in the 10". If I take a shot be...

Re: Barrel length

Out of the box, my 22" Super Bantam with the first choke I put it in it, a .555 PG, shot 320 in the 10". Not much work or time going to and from the paper--it was only 40 yards away. I didn't want nor need that many pellets in the 10" so I went to .570 PG, no buffer, and it is now averaging about 28...

Re: Barrel length

I shoot whatever comes with the gun. With modern chokes and loads, at what I consider to be turkey distances, the short ones can pattern just as tight as the longer ones. William at Sumtoy was telling me about Killdee's 20 gauge 870 with a 21" barrel was putting 370--380 inside the 10"at 40 yards. 1...

Re: Anyone ever flinch?

When I shot competitively in IHMSA, my shooting partner helped me break a flinch by loading or not loading the gun behind my back and letting me shoot it unaware if it was loaded or not. We started out with .22, worked our way up to the competition loads. You can do the same with shotguns, rifles et...

Re: What is your effective range?

Regarding pattern density with #6 lead and effective distances, John McDaniel wrote a book back in the 1970s about turkey hunting. He was an early proponent of large size shot and ten gauges. He conducted patterning tests in the woods with paper down range and he made shots as if turkey hunting, sit...
