Re: Barrel regulation

I answered your pm. That's very normal for a sxs to shoot tss in that manner - left barrel shoots left and right barrel shoots right. A lighter load will probably not be as far off, and a file will usually move the pattern so that both barrels shoot to same poi. Your gun was designed to shoot field...

Find the thread by poorcountrypreacher a few years ago showing his trials and tribulations in regulating his double. He succeeded but with great effort. TSS behaves differently in a double compared with lead. Gil

Barrel regulation

I have a side by side the barrels shoot one foot horizontally apart at 38 yards. Can that be fixed by filing the choke, or is it too much to overcome? I want to keep one barrel for tight constriction (longer shots) and one barrel open for closer shots. Any suggestions are welcome. 8B20A613-4022-49DF...

Charles Daly 20ga coach gun build

Is there a reasonable way to attach red dot optics to these guns? Does anyone have any experience with both barrels shooting to point of aim on these guns? Logic says two barrels, with a barrel selector or two triggers, makes sense for turkeys. One tight choke and one open for close shots. I have no...

NEF Pardner Youth 20

I was going through my safe this weekend and ran across my son’s first shotgun. It is so small that it was well hidden in the back of the safe. I thought it might make a nice little tss gun. Has anyone had any experience with these guns regarding pistol grip stocks, threaded choke barrels, and red d...

Re: Poa / poi question

He is using his old 12ga. until we can load more shells and see what the issue is / was. He originally zeroed his ffIII with tss. He thinks he may have jarred it. Thanks for the input.

Poa / poi question

Can point of impact vary greatly from one load to another? Say, hevi shot load and a tss load. Can they be different enough to miss a turkey at 30 yards? I have helped a friend get started with 20 ga and tss this year and he is having issues. He has killed two turkeys with tss this year. One at 43 y...

Re: remington 870 20 gauge indian creek choke

Don't discount the factory full choke until you shoot it with a clean bbl. I was gonna hunt with mine, but a Sumtoy .562 I had turned out slightly better for a hunting pattern. Hal's big 20XL load.

Has anyone received their free FFIII yet? If so, how long after paperwork submission to receipt? I sent everything in on April 28. The website says they have received my submission and it is valid, but nothing else.

Re: Prescribed burning

Those are all great reasons that I had always heard. The largest landowner here (Gulf States Paper Company) used be on a two year rotation, but they quit for some reason. Now all of their lease land is pine of all sizes with thicket underneath. You can hunt roads and food plots and that's about it. ...

Prescribed burning

I hunted South Georgia last weekend. On my drive home I noticed virtually every pine plantation was prescribed burned. The practice isn't followed here anywhere close to down there. Anyone have any idea why?

Re: Furthest you have seen a bird fly to get to your calls?

Had one fly across the Tombigbee river in West Alabama (about 300 yards). I was entertaining a buyer that I used to call on as a sales rep. He was the only turkey we heard that morning and he gobbled at everything I did. We stood on one side of the river and I really poured on the sweetness. I didn'...
