Enjoyed the visit. Glad Bobski could meet other members of the club. I like your old Win 12. Did you make the shell weights ? Was considering adding 10 oz Mercury weight to my 870. Don't know if synthetic stock was set up for weight or I'd have to "create" a space. Balance - gun gets heavy quick.
Old Lyme - East Lyme - really are beautiful small towns. Yet, the tick is a public relations nightmare.
I hate to clean guns as well but next time I'll be happy take the 28 ga for a spin. Just couldn't take the chance I'd fall in love w her today. Always thought 28 ga. was the Ideal Training Gun.
When I just wipe down my gun, I call it "stress testing" rather than straight up sloth. The gun is remarkably tolerant. Going to get really cold soon, wonder if it will effect cycling or will I need to change my oil ? Figure if it's cold enough to freeze the action, I should be indoors anyway
