Looks like a Coopers Hawk.

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.

Re: TSS for Deer?

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 ...

Re: who is shooting a 28 ga pump?

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.

Re: who is shooting a 28 ga pump?

I went out Saturday morning after some doves in the wake of tropical storm Hermine, and had almost no action. So, I took it back out yesterday morning after some crows and gave it a fair workout. I went through a box of shells and did OK. Missed a lot of shots I should have made and made some pretty...

Re: who is shooting a 28 ga pump?

I haven't shot it yet, so not sure about the trigger. Was hoping to do it this afternoon, but not sure I'll be able to get things done in time. I want to take it out after doves and ducks this fall. It throws up just right for me. I got the 28" barrel and plan on trying the full choke with the 1-5/1...

The problem with jakes is that sometimes they think they are too big for their britches and just need to die.
