    Ammo can change point of impact dramatically.Since gun-makers have no idea what kind of ammo a
    customer might be using, they tend to cover all bases by designing handguns to shoot a bit
    low.This is be...

    A bit ago I was asked if I had to replace the barrel on my 220 swift yet. Seems the poster had
    read to old myth from days long gone by about how quick the barrels went. I don't even know why
    that was ...

    Another vote for a pump shotgun. Mossberg 500, 18" barrel, Synthetic stock, old blanket to wrap
    it up in. Box or two of shells, mix of slugs, birdshot.

    blast back ...

    Another mystery is why laser checkering in unavailable for unfinished stocks.

  • Posted in thread: Boyd Stocks on 09-10-2016 at 08:22 AM
    That's why I always order my stocks unfinished. I think Boyd's must employ a bunch of Special
    Needs people in their finish dept.I would sand the stock and finish it with Tung oil.I never
    seem to see a...

    After trying out stripper clips on my Scout Squad, I never swapped or loaded magazines again.
    It's faster, and easier too.

    Which means, essentially, that it would be a poor choice for variable distances, such as for
    hunting.Not a lot of sense, there.

    It looks like hard times for the groundhogs are coming up.Nice shooting!
