    I have become addicted to English hammered shotguns to the detriment of my wallet.

  1. And if the part has to come from Italy, it may take a while, COVID hit Italy pretty hard. I have an order outstanding from VTI since the beginning of November for some hardened Uberti screws
  2. Ramming the gate could result in being injured, making capture much easier
  3. Check with a magnet, but if it is steel shot it should say so on the box. #6 shot is allowed, but may be an issue if the targets are too close. Cabela's/Bass Pro/Sportsmane's Warehouse (since they are basically the same company now) sometimes has bird shot available. Will a 1/2 oz load work with 60 grains of BP or substitute? Maybe, it will depend on the muzzle velocity and how much of the pattern actually hits a knockdown target. I certainly wouldn't want to rely on a 1/2 ounce for a state level match, I've seen targets at a number of clubs not go down with a 7/8 or 1 ounc
  4. "The destruction was massive" Umm, no, if the destruction had really been massive, the talking head and the camera operator would probably be dead.
  5. Here is a link that will likely provide all the information you could ever want about the 5"/38 caliber naval gun. In this context caliber is the length of the barrel (190") divided by the bore diameter (5"). http://www.navweaps.com/Weapons/WNUS_5-38_mk12.php
  6. It does tend to get everyone's attention, even though I'm several hundred yards away and out of sight people know it's me when I fire it. Short of an 8 gauge nothing else booms like a short barreled 10 gauge.
  7. Because pulling both triggers at once with BP or subs is FUN!!! I do it with my 10 g with 120 grs of 1 F and 1 1/2 ounce of shot.
  8. Not that I know the answer, but adding what kind of gun it is might be helpful...
  9. For me a standard sized Zatarain's box (it sometimes comes in a larger "family" size) is usually good for 2-3 meals and it reheats fairly well. However my portion sizes tend to be on the larger size so you may get 3-5 meals. Maybe 10 minutes of prep , dump everything into a pot, bring to a full boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes.
  10. Many years ago, when I was still young enough to want to go out late and have fun, I was driving home from a friend's house on the highway around 2 am. I came over a slight rise and saw headlights coming directly at me because some driver got confused and was driving the wrong way. I was driving a Lincoln MKVII and I still believe if it wasn't for the very good handling and suspension the car had I would not have otherwise been able to swerve out of the way. I rather doubt I would have survived a head on collision when the closing speed was in the neighborhood of 100 mph -120 mph.
  11. Zatarain's isn't cheating! I've had both the Red Beans & Rice and a lot of their Jambalaya and both are pretty good. I do tend to add additional spices and sometimes fresh herbs and vegetables when making both.
  12. Get the 12 gauge, I've known experienced shooters who said a short barreled 20 gauge had a nasty kick to it. Off the top of my head, there are at least 3 different factory light loads available in 12 gauge: Winchester Feather Lite and Extra Lite and a Herter's load that was probably about the same as the Extra Lite. And if you happen to forget to pack the shotgun ammo there will be plenty of shooters who will have extra 12 gauge for you to use. I don't see very many people using a 20 gauge. Get the double trigger, they are almost always more reliable than a single tr
  13. Lol, it never even crossed my mind when I posted the link. Being a stormtrooper reenactor is cheaper than SASS And for those of you wanting to wear the white helmet: https://501st.com/ They do charity work as well as appearances.
  14. Yes, you too can own your very own storm trooper armor! Link: https://www.stormtrooperstore.com/
