Re: beautiful day to be in the woods

Gil, I think the key is laying the gun across your lap ready to shoot while you doze. :wink: I've killed two turkeys in my life like that, and both were in the last year and a half. I'm beginning to think maybe it's a legitimate strategy. As I get older and slow down some, I'm thinking it'll become ...

beautiful day to be in the woods

Went out today and hunted hard all morning, but was unable to find anything. Found a nice place to sit down and eat lunch, and decided to stretch out and take a nap. Dozed off a little, and laid around for about an hour or so, and called every now and then. About 1:40, immediately after a lost yelp ...

Re: Love the Fall !!

I went out Saturday morning but couldn't find any. They'd had bulldozers in there messing around this week - and I didn't know about it, or I'd have gone elsewhere. But the woods were gorgeous and it was therapeutic.

Yeah Denny, your pattern was what persuaded me to try it in the CZ. I'm going to get one for the M37 to try also.

Re: CZ 28 ga with TruLock .520

Looks real good, Hal. How do these compare to your XF patterns? Seems like I remember my Trulock XF being about .525...is that right? Here's the 1-1/2 oz load with the Briley XF: http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/patterns/60fc6e063504174ca8aba5ba3dbc6bb9_zpsl0vazzry.jpg Here's the 1...

Re: who is shooting a 28 ga pump?

I got the 28" barrel, and no, I can't tell if I got a round chambered or not, so far. Gonna have to get used to that. I took it out on Saturday after some wood ducks. I loaded up 1/2 oz of #10s. Had an improved cylinder factory flush on it. I shot at 4 ducks, and put all 4 on the water. Two were hig...

Re: Franchi AL 48 - 28 guage

I shot this gun right out of the box with the factory full choke, and it's more than sufficient to 50 yds with 9s or 9-1/2s.

Re: Need TSS loading advice

Jim, if there are holes a wood duck could fly through at 40 yds, it's not likely a choke issue, or a payload issue. Usually that sort of problem is related to the way it is loaded. Sent you a PM.

The 4mm are about #1 size, the 4.5mm are the size of Daisy BBs, or #B in typical hunting shot, and the 5mm are about #T. The first deer shot with the #1s I have was a small buck at 67 lasered yards several years ago. The shooter counted 16 pellets that hit the deer, and 13 of them passed completely ...

I took it out yesterday after some crows and went two for two (9/16 oz of 9-1/2). The gun really feels nice. It's definitely a keeper.
