Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

Here in the lowcountry we have sand gnats. "Flying teeth" and will bite the bejeebers out you. They come out when the temps are perfect in the spring and fall. Anywhere from high 60s to low 70s. Gil

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

turkeybuster was engaged in his pre-dawn daily devotional in the bushes near a lowcountry river when he heard what he thought was a raccoon walking through the nearby brush. It was a big gator. The sight of the gator sped up the "devotional" and TB finished quickly and got out fast.

Re: deep cleaning and polishing.

Better is the enemy of good enough. Honing removes metal and that metal could be the thin chrome lining that protects the bore from worse problems than a pattern that is good enough. Gil

Re: 410 Yildiz

The Yildiz .410 single shot is marked "TK-36". The design is copied from the old Beretta 412 series which has been out of production for decades. Midland Company currently makes an all steel blued model for slightly more cost. It is blued and several ounces under 5 lbs. The Yildiz has an anodized al...

Re: 410 Yildiz

I know granddads and at least one great granddad that shoot that gun, too. What were the 10" ring counts? Which load--13/16 oz. or 370 grains? Looks good!

Re: Look but don't touch!

On a dove field I hunt there is an old two wire transmission line running along the field. There have been occasions when the weight of hundreds of dove sitting on the top wire grounds to the bottom wire and there have been as many as a dozen dove killed at one time. Gil

Barrel regulation can be a tricky proposition. It can be load specific.

Re: Anyone using Federal TSS

If you shoot a 12 and adhere in spirit and in practice to 40 yards, lead is good enough. If you want to carry a lighter gun, which means a smaller gauge and lighter loads, TSS is the way to go.

Re: Who hunts with a double?

Back in the day when 10 gauge was the rage, I had two doubles in 10 ga. One was a 1938-9 Ithaca NID 3.5" and the other was a Spanish gun in the same chamber length. Both were 32". I still have the Ithaca after trading back for it about 5 years ago my SBE to the man I sold it to over 30 years ago. MI...

Re: Keltec KSG12

It's not just the fact the barrel is 18.5" that would be rough on the ears. The shooter's ears are handful of inches closer to muzzle than with an 18.5" barreled pump, auto or break-action. Add a suppressor. Then the length advantage is compromised and more weight added. And it's 12 gauge. Rube Gold...

Re: Wild Turkey vs. Domestic Turkey - Who Wins This Backyard Turkey Fight?

I like Ole Cedric. With that gobblin' post butt kickin', he was saying "don't hold me back, don't hold me back, lemme at him, I'll get him" as he was hoping someone would hold him back and/or shoot the other bird.
