According to reports, the first of 2 doses offers 30% effective protection after a period of time. After 9 days and second dose, effectiveness rise...

Re: COVID VACCINE!

I listened to an interesting discussion about why the anti-vaxers have such a large audience of believers. When a child dies of a vaccination reaction, it gets widespread attention through the well-financed movement and social media. When a family is vaccinated and doesn't suffer from reaction or ge...

He seems to be terrified of anvils and large safes. I wonder why.

If it helps further, his tail is bushy like a fox, and he goes nuts when the microwave goes "Beep-beep" and comes when I say "Wile E."

Re: Who is in shape..

I've dropped 11 pounds in the past couple of weeks. This COVID diet is easy to stick to, you can't breathe, you don't want to eat. I'm over two weeks in on it and it's the sickest I've ever been, AND the longest. I'm concerned I'll be able to motivate around FL come March. But job one is to just ge...

Re: Sling swivel installation on sxs 410

Roost1, does the paracord "noose" over the barrel? The one we've discussed doesn't. Note how it is open where the rib and sight plane would be. Gil

While the rib might not support screws, have you considered JB Weld or some other strong epoxy?

Re: Sling swivel installation on sxs 410

Interested in seeing the link to the Italian Co. Just for info (curiosity). Darne made one for their guns. At the stock was a small metal plate with a key hole. On the sling was a mushroom shaped bit of metal that slipped into the round hole and snugged into the narrow slot. The barrels had a simila...

Re: Sling swivel installation on sxs 410

In one of the older catalogs, there were different sizes for ranges of gauges. Don't know if one size fits all. Mine does fine down to 20 ga. Gil

Re: Sling swivel installation on sxs 410

It doesn't cross rib. It's an inverted, somewhat square "C" shape of leather covered malleable metal that bends to fit gauge. As I stated above, it has an opening over the rib. It has a clear sight picture. It doesn't interfere with wingshooting or turkey shooting. According to vendor, it's currentl...

Re: Sling swivel installation on sxs 410

If the internal metal work offers clearance, the fore end can be drilled for a stud. For my upland doubles that don't have the swivels factory mounted, I've used the CSMC Gamekeeper sling which buckles on the stock and a leather covered piece slides on the barrels with an opening over the rib.

Re: Safe Hull Length for 2 1/2" Chamber

Your issue will most likely be ejection. Your ejection port may or may not be long enough. Try ejecting a spent shell of 2.75". You will not blow up your gun shooting 2.75". Sherman Bell pressure tested longer loads shot in short chambers and had no serious pressure increases. In old doubles, pressu...

Re: CZ drake 28

I used the diy "shake and spray" Duracoat to coat the shiny receiver on my TK12 single-shot. Duracoat doesn't hold up as well as Ceracote. Neither Duracoat nor Ceracote are repairable, however. There's something to be said for priming and rattle-can Rustoleum which will hold up okay, not as tough as...

Re: CZ drake 28

Does Yildiz blue the metal or satin chrome the O/U? The Yildiz single-shots are satin chromed which is tough and corrosion proof. Actions are anodized aluminum. No need to further protect the metal at least on the single shots. Gil

Re: Favorite shotgun sight

Jeffery, welcome on your first post. The industry met the needs of some of us. With turkeys, fewer shot birds over 30-35 yards, no one shot TSS, few shot anything but 12s, if another gauge, it was 10 and more than a few went to red dots when eyeballs grew old. It was either the red dot, rifle sights...

Congrats on the bird, Hal!

I had to go to an electronic sight about 15 years ago, but I always thought that Presbyopia was the fear of Presbyterians. :)
That would be Presbyphobia. ;) Gil

Re: Savage 220 misfire

If you have a source of compressed air, blow out the solvent and gunk begone. Different shells could make a difference, too. I've heard complaints over the years about some primers being the cause of ftf in some guns, but that's usually a remote issue. Good luck. Gil

Once one hits a certain age, farsightedness often enters the picture. It's been over 25 years since I joined the Presbyopian Congregation and went to a red dot. It helps. :D

Re: Savage 220 misfire

What do you mean by a good cleaning? Did you soak the action in a solvent? What type of ammo where you shooting? If it's not ammo or a cleaning issue, take it to a gunsmith. The action of these old Savages are more complex than a simple box lock double. They have a true firing pin as opposed to inte...

Have one, two or three birds fly down in the dark, with a dark background and barely light enough to see florescent white heads but not light enough to illuminate fiber optic sights or see shotgun beads on top of a tight barrel and get back with us on how things went. It was this this sort of episod...
