hey balota....see rule 5 above!
See? That's what I'm talking about. Shotgunning is backwards. Get sight alignment and then stop looking at the sights? I spend all my practice time trying to focus on my target until i decide to shoot it, then focus on the front sight to be sure I hit it!

Sigh... Another learning curve is heading my way...

What I need from you good Folks(since MzGrn & I can't make it This Time) are some Photos and possibly 1 short video clip(not Firearms Magazine!! Ha Ha) to show Possible Vendors. One of the things I promised Bob(and Balota) was that I would not Bring a Sponsor to the table who wanted total control. If i have some Pics to show those potential sponsors WE MIGHT find someone who would NOT want to "Take Over." Can Someone get us a few Pics??
Bob, if you have time for a Short Interview I can Pre record with you? if not, after the shoot weekend Is Fine....

hey dr.football....

if the sponsor wants a meet of their own....we can put together a meet just for them....but it wont be a bobski shoot and hoot. they can bring all their machines or whatever, invite whoever they want.....and offer it to the crowd as a field trial for their wares....at my place. that way they can have total control and i can just sit there and chat in up with the ftf gang and not work like a dead dog one bit! :>
follow me?

Was on the phone w Remington Tech last week. He told me Remington sells stock shims to get the LOP right for you . Mine is under 14" and he said that could contribute to cheek slap and bruised cheek bones depending on the shell. The kit is $8-12.

He also told me my 1/8 cheek pad will lift my pattern 2" at 20 yds and 4" at 40 yds. I will have to pattern the gun when it gets back. The mag tube was installed crooked so every time I pumped the gun it rubbed some of the finish off the receiver. Add this to your lexicon of knowledge.
