    She's not that kind of rifle. As she sits now she's from the other side of the tracks kind of girl. A wink and a moon pie and she is good to go.

    My fil loved to use wd:40 on his guns for some god awful reason. This thing is packed with goo. Took 45 min actually closer to an hour just to clean the breach face area. The bolt assy. Is actually gummy. When my step son was getting ready to head off to the Navy he wanted to try out the 12 ga, I don't have one yet, so he would know what go expect at basic. Long story short my FIL actually said to me when I brought back the mossy that something doesn't seem right with it...... Told him I took it all the way down and scrubbed, cleaned, and lubed it. ( after I did the cleaning she cycled so smooth) so what's he do???? You guessed sprays the hell out of it with WD !!! I just shook my head and left.
