.410 Yildiz Single-Shot

I mentioned on OG in my thread on my Baikal project 20 gauge single-shot yesterday that I had bought another “project” gun, a single-shot Yildiz .410. I paid $128.39 inclusive of sales tax to Academy Outdoor and Sports in Augusta, GA. The gun is imported to Texas from Turkey and is not available via...

Jethro Bodine's (guesswho?) 50th birthday

It was 50 years ago yesterday that Jed, Elly May, Jethro and Granny first appeared on TV. And Miss Jane and Mr. Drysdale.

Re: how often do you kill one standing up?

One trick I learned from an old timer who stood often was to lean against a tree with the non-shooting shoulder. The shotgun is held barrel down on a log or stick to keep the muzzle clear. Otis would often stand among the gallberries where vision would be obstructed if one was sitting. He killed a l...

Re: Season Date Question

We fish the same areas we hunt. The season ends on May 15th. Throughout June, turkeys gobble up and down the rivers. Hit the boat with a paddle---gobble. It never fails, season after season. Gil

Re: best diaphragm mouth call

I've tried different calls, but not all fit my palate. Years ago I bought a close-out of Jim Clay Perfection calls from WalMart that I use every season. They work for me. I keep them stored in a metal ammo can in a cool place and the unused ones have held up for years sealed in their original small ...

Re: Where were you

I was at work and heard about the first plane to hit the WTC. We turned on the TV and saw the 2d tower hit. My secretary's dad had been at the train station in the WTC 30 minutes before the plane struck. Two days later my youngest brother died unexpectedly on the date of my daughter's birthday.

Re: bought a new Mossberg

Do you plan on smoothing out the trigger pull or is it okay as is? I had it done to my 20 gauge Super Bantam and it was a huge improvement. Dissassembly and reassembly of the Mossy trigger group is not for the faint of heart. Gil

Re: Blackhawk Tactical?

The Knoxx Spec Ops Mossy 12 gauge stock can be slightly modified with a slight nick via Dremel wheel to fit the 20 gauge Mossy. Otherwise, the slide release won't function properly.

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.

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.
