    Sometime late 90s early2000, Ballistic Specialities built a Beretta 391 to be the softest shooting gun possiable. There was an article in ,probably, Shotgun Sports documenting the build and effects of the various changes. In 1995 I spend 300$ to...

    It's called "still hunting" because you are Still huntin even when you are moving VERY slowly to your next stand a few feet from this one. Or maybe because you gotta be still :)

    Another still hunter here. I love the challenge of getting close and frequently spot and stalk as well. I hunt my farm so no concern of other hunters and I know the land and the critters. Lived and hunted this land all my life. As close as I get to...

    Nice score, they are very nice revolvers. I picked up a no dash 18 a few years ago. The gun was in a LGS that I had not visited for quite a while. He said it had been on the shelf for 6 months! It was the first 18 of any vintage I'd seen in near 20...

    If she is truly a beginner then teach her to shoot from the left shoulder. When she starts shooting a shotgun she will thank you. Personally I am fairly center dominant, strongly right handed and have trained my brain to prioritize the right eye...

    I load them. They will go maybe 4 loads, and I have had them fail by loosing the head at extraction. I normally load them three times and the last loading is left in the woods. They are aggravating because you have to sort them by length and adjust...

    Yes I have used the G ould bullet on several deer. Most from a 45 colt Low Wall running about 1600 fps. Personally, and considering my almost pure lead alloy, that was a bit fast. Bulletwas designed for 20 : 1 and 1400ish fps. It works well there....

    Congrats, always glad to see someone get a gun they desire, especially a rare bird. Not every pistol has to be practical, that's why they make CZ75 clones and Ruger revolvers. Some take pleasure in the successful execution of the design parameters....

    Been using El Paso Saddlery holsters for decades, ordered a new holster & matching belt a couple of years ago and have been very impressed. Hand tooling almost too pretty to hide under a shirt or jacket. For a few dollars more than mass-produced...

    The Winchester M12 was a 16 GA sized gun, actually think it shared with the 20.My 1913 vintage 16 is actually lighter than my 50s 20 ga. The M12 wasnt chambered for the long(2 3/4 inch) shell until 1936. My late 50s 870 in 16 uses the 12 GA frame...

    Crossman Premiers should work for you. Their skirts are thicker and generally a much tougher pellet.

    I like nickel plated cases for carry ammo. They also work fine for practice ammo, a bit easier to find when shooting weapons that have the poor manners to toss cases when they're done with them. I generally lose them or they lose the plating after...

    Remington and Colt and Winchester and others are just names these days, the old companies that made it possible to sell today's guns are long gone.

    Yes, I have to agree, and I dont like plastic! I load my sp101 in 327 with a 311008 @ 1000fps. Plenty (and then some) for ground hogs and the like. I just dont see the 327 as a good deer gun , so I feel no need to run it at the top. Truth is I would...

    Correct, the 12 will pattern more evenly than the 20 in general. With the 7/8 load the 20 is great, I much prefer the 12 for 1 1/8 and up. Now for 1 oz, ill take a 16 , but the 20 can come close. Also you can drive the larger payloads faster in...
