Posted in thread: How good are Legacy Shotguns? on 05-31-2013 at 12:31 PM
I'm looking for a shotgun for my daughter. She'll be 12 and is looking to go pheasant hunting,
but she's tiny. I have a Beretta A-390 20ga., but it's too long and heavy for her. She can
shoot it (bare...
Posted in thread: good military movies? on 05-26-2012 at 03:26 AM
I'm surprised no one mentioned "The Sands of Iwo Jima", "The Flying Leathernecks", "The Red
Badge of Courage", or "Sparticus". Did anyone mention "Tora! Tora! Tora!"? Another good but not
well known m...

I will freely admit to being unreasonably prejudiced, but I would never pay money for a
Benelli. Or own another one. Or accept one as a gift. Or remain in the same room as one. If
your choice is Brown...

Maybe we need to look at this a new way. What if we make it legal for gangbangers to kill other
gangbangers? So if a Crip shoots a 6 year old girl, he goes to the chair. If a Crip shoots a
Blood, he g...

Rifled chokes help, but you may need to try different slug loads to find the one that works
Posted in thread: hunt in africa on 03-10-2012 at 03:57 AM
For plains game in Africa, you could use either a 7mm or .338 magnum. Your PH will probably
recommend premium bullets in heavier weights. 160 gr in the 7mm or 250 gr in the .338. The
African PH's I ta...
Posted in thread: Is it safe to reload target-grade shotgun hulls? on 03-08-2012 at 09:49 PM
I have always found "target" shotshell hulls to be the BEST for reloading. I think they are
more uniform and more durable, giving more reloads per hull than field grade or economy shells.

I've never had a bad experience with a Remington 11-87 or an 1100, but I haven't handled one
made less than about 6 or 7 years ago. They do need a break-in period, and they need to be kept
clean and l...
Posted in thread: Looking for some fun shooters on 03-01-2012 at 12:53 PM
The most fun gun I have ever fired was an M1 carbine. I think a Mosin is a good budget-minded
choice. Other potentially fun guns would be:SKSAKLever action .357/.38, .44, .45Mini 14/Mini

What do you consider "primitive"? I'm all for primitive hunting and special seasons for such.
However, as long as there is breath in my lungs and blood in my veins, I will not concede that
