  1. I purchased some Peltor electronic ear plugs. With the optional foam inserts they are rated at 30 DB. They are comfortable and last for a day long match with no issues. Come with a fitted hard case that allows for recharge. Amazon has them for less than 150.00. During prime specials this summer they were reduced to 115.00. They are lime green for industrial use , color may seem strange but it sure helps to find them.
  2. If you had a SKB 100 shotgun in the original configuration and wanted it set up for cowboy action what gunsmith would you use and why? thanks in advance
  3. Was speaking with a fellow shooter today and he mentioned that the Charles Daly shotguns have an issue with breaking firing pins. i have not heard that information. Does anyone have experience with this issue. If it is a problem with the new 512 model is there a replacement?
  4. I have one just like this shotgun. Very well made and a real sweet gun to carry and deadly on birds. More than fair price for a great pheasant or dove gun. Three inch shells fit also. bump to the top
  5. Like most I like my 36 cal Navy to shoot. Great pointing gun and just plain fun to shoot. With that said I am thinking that I will not use them for major matches. Last match I used them got called for three misses on one stage. They were deflections into the ground off of some targets set at an angle. Spotters were attentive but just plain did not see a hit or hear one but sure saw the ball hit the dirt. Happened a few other time in the match. Have a 51 navy in 44 from Pietta that I am going to use more. Still enjoy the cap and ball!
  6. Nice looking shotgun, Barrel and chokes? Condition of the gun?
  7. Would you take $1100.00

      Thank you for the offer. I am selling the gun for a friend. They have turned down a 1200.00 offer and said they would accept 1300.00 and pay shipping to a FFL in lower 48.

      Regards

  10. Be great if they would come to winter range to display their products!
  11. Ted Cash makes a brass snail style. Works well and holds 100 number 10 caps.
  12. The current discussion on the media is that the airlines can impose a rule that would not allow ammo on the aircraft. It is the fastest and easy way to regulate without a law passage and difficult to fight. Hope not as I plan to fly to Winter Range this year! Could cause issues for th honest people.
  13. Wadcutter ammo is mainly used for paper targets. The wadcutter will cut a round hole on the paper target which is helpful with the scoring. If a round cuts the line of the next higher scoring ring on the target the higher score is counted. In some cases a target plug is inserted into the bullet hole to check the score value. While many are correct that the Smith & Wesson Mdl. 52(semi auto) used wadcutter ammo it was and is used in many other handguns for target shooting. Back in the old days when the wheel guns were the issue weapon of law enforcement they were also the handgun used in PPC competition. I fired many thousands of rounds of wadcutter ammo in my Smith & Wesson K frame with custom bull barrel and bomar rib. Most wadcutters are made from a softer lead blend then we use for SASS. We used to load 148 grain hollowbase wadcutters upside down for close shooting at skunks and other varmints. They were a cheap form of hollowpoint with terrific close range energy transfer to target.
