  1. Waimea, The SKB's and Brownings are really nice guns but expensive. It costs almost as much to convert an SKB trigger from inertia to mechanical as a Stoeger costs! I'm told that the conversion is about $300, while I paid $325 for my single trigger Stoeger (used of course).


    I have been using a Stoeger Supreme, single trigger for about 4 years now and after some initial modifications for function, I've had no problems with it. I have found that with some people the gun will double but it never has with me. I tried to analyze what caused the doubling and came to the conclusion that the problem was with the trigger squeeze.


    Some folks squeeze a shotgun trigger just like they would squeeze a target rifle trigger, pressing back slowly until the trigger breaks unexpectedly. When the gun recoils from the first shot, the finger is separated from the trigger for a split second, but during recovery the finger re-engages the trigger and pulls it a second time. The result is a double shot.


    I think that this could be remedied with heavier trigger springs and/or changing the angle on the sear engagement for a little heavier pull.


    You are welcome to try out my Stoeger any time you'd like. Let me know. I'll have it at our match in Orlando on May 7.

    I think you're right about the dbl fires,,,,, I was shooting birds with my skb, mechanical trigger, switched to heavy loads and whamo and dbl,,,, thot I had broken it!!!!

  2. like Max sed,,,, who by the way is one of the most relaxed fellers I know,,,, quit yur whining and go load some ammo so you can look forward to playing again next weekend!!!


    if you don't look forward to playing cowboy,,, then find another sport to whine about!!

  3. Founders Ranch is a gold mine....... for the owners. You have brought up many concerns that I was thinking about as well. I believed that SASS owned FR but it looks like SASS pays a lease to use it. Now what happens if the lease was to end? All of the money spent to build and improve FR would be retained by the owners. One thing I was wondering is if the lease payment just happens to equal the mortgage payment. No numbers have been given and this has the familiarity of the "you have to pass it to find out what is in it."


    The math doesn't really add up for me as well. It was stated that there was somewhere over 19,000 PAYING members. Now if you were to multiply that by $65, now you really start to wonder where all that money is going.


    A lot of clubs scrape by and live off donated items and labor just to have a place to shoot. The last thing we need to do is squeeze them for money as well because they will have to pass that expense to the members.

    a gold mine? any proof to back that up,,,,, I wudn't trade my house for one stake in FR!
