Re: new loads

Hal, I assume you are going back to the drawing board on the 7/8 oz. load. It sounds like a screamer at 1406 fps. A duck load? How'd it pattern in the 10" ring? Gil

Re: Poor Country Preacher

Having a gun project between seasons is a good way to keep the interest up--and it provides plenty of daydream fodder when you should be doing something else. Good luck. Gil

Re: cheap Wal-Mart calls

I hunted a Lil' Duece this season and liked it because of size and sound. My all-time favorite mouth call is a Perfection Raspy D and I bought dozens at a season's end close-out price of $2 @ about 10-12 years ago from Wally World.

Re: Ipe ( Brazilian Walnut )

Nice looking call. Ipe dust is reputed to be toxic, causing severe allergic reactions in some folks. It is also loaded with silica. Be careful in sanding and wear appropriate breathing protection.

Re: My New Everyday Carry.

I've got the PM9 and PM380. Night sights on the 9. I carry a Ruger LCP 380 daily. The PM380 is not broken-in so still a few hiccups. The Ruger and PM9 don't. Only complaint about the LCP is the sights. MY PM380 is buried in the safe, but here are the other two. I like Buffalo Bore in the 380 Ruger. ...

Re: single shot turkey guns

I'm taking a different tack on a single shot. I've narrowed it down to a Baikal MP18 or Savage 220A. I'll get photos up this weekend on the "before" guns. My recently acquired Savage is in great shape so I probably will opt for the Baikal. The Savage has seen little use. We'll see....I am chosing be...

When I see the eye rolls when I mention that I use #9 18 g/cc tungsten shot, a few get the point when they learn that there are 585 lead #9s in an oz.

Re: penetration tests

Without regard to the photograph of the T8s showing a red surface, look at the T9 photos which appear to be the same tin plated surfaces as the lead #4 and #6 size shot tin plated surfaces which showed dents with no penetration. All of the T9 photos of shots at different velocities display penetrati...

Re: Finally got to shoot a bird with TSS

Yep, TSS has changed the game for me. Nice going. I have three 12 gauge turkey guns that will probably become permanent safe queens other than for use as "guest" guns. I would rather have a $1000 worth of TSS9s and a $300 20 gauge shotgun than a $1500 12 gauge 3.5" shotgun and Walmart loads. When I ...
