    This is good to know.  I'm running through my remaining Clays pretty quickly.  I have plenty of Titegroup for metalic cartridge, but only about 5 lbs of Clays left.  My current load is 11.9 of Clays, so the same load of Red Dot will probably work fine.

    You can find it on Gunbroker for about $350 and up for 8 lbs.

    Yeah, I've noticed and not quite that desperate.

    I have no trouble understanding why folks like motorcycles, and three of my brothers have had them.

     

    I practiced law for 45 years, probably 75% defense of personal injury cases. Can't begin to count how many really, really bad motorcyle accident cases I was involved in. About half crashes with other cars, the other single; loss of control for various reasons, including road conditions. Many deaths, many terrible injuries.

     

    So I never get on one, and discouraged all my kids from doing so. And a few other things-- like working in sawmills and plywood plants......

    Everytime someone mentions facts like that to me, I ask if they have ever heard about car crashes and deaths/injuries associated with them.   Yes, they gave and they keep driving.   It's all a matter of which risks you feel comfortable taking.

    Redleg,

         If I understand your problem, your shotgun will go off without you touching the trigger. That is not a firing pin problem, it might be a hammer sear, trigger, or cocker rod problem, or not. But I bet it scares hell out of ya when it happens. I may or may not have the answer.

     P.M. me if you would like to discuss it

    It was going off as I closed the action.  I purchased new firing pins and when I disassembled it, the original pins were dragging thru the bushing.  Looks like it was possible that at times the pin wouldn't be retracted causing the gun to fire as it was closed.

    We use Practiscore on iPads.  Earlier this year we added AMG Bluetooth timers.  We are well pleased with them.

    Curious as to why your club picked the AMG timer.  We will be replacing our old Competition Pro timers this winter and have used the PACT timers but haven't seen the AMG.  You guys see any major difference?  Thanks!

  5. I have a Stoeger coach gun, double triggers, been shooting it for about 2 years.  Last two matches, I have had incidents of the gun going off as the action is closed.  First time, the left barrel would do it.  The last time both barrels fired.  In each instance,  I finally finished the stage, opened and closed the action several times an the gun was fine for the rest of the match.   I can't see anything wrong so figured it was time to ask here.  Thanks in advance!
