Re: Are Turkish sidelocks now a good bet? Parabola 09/28/21 02:56 PM
Like anything else it will depend on if they are built up to a standard or down to a price

The weight may have to do with whether they have to stand someone putting those Turkish Tactical anti-drone shells through them?

They have no practical use for gun storage either....all they have going for them is gun club cOOl factor.

Here comes ol' cOOl bOb with his weird gun case.

Re: OT - a tribute to wild bobs GLS 09/28/21 12:57 PM
Before Europeans arrived in America, fire was used by humans to manage the pine forests in the Southeast. The practice was later adopted by the newly arrived farmers, but was discouraged as timber interests began to campaign against woods burning. In 1924 Herbert Stoddard endorsed the use of fire in the quail woods of the Red Hills of Georgia for both timber and quail management. His publication in 1931 "The Bobwhite Quail..." detailed his research. While Aldo Leopold is considered by many to be the father of wildlife management, he acknowledged later in life that it was Herbert Stoddard who was among the first of the game management pioneers because of his work in recognizing the importance of controlled burning in the wire grass and longleaf forests of SW Georgia. According to Leopold: "Herbert Stoddard, in Georgia, started the first management of wildlife based on research." The longleaf pine evolved to withstand and flourish after natural fires were caused by lightning strikes. Fire is critical for the survival of longleaf pines as it removes forest litter which impedes the growth of longleaf seedlings, removes fire intolerant competing pines and controls blight which can sicken the longleaf pine.

Re: Ithaca Lewis information LetFly 09/28/21 12:36 PM
Gun is off to my gunsmith for examination and proper repair on barrels. He thought the same as you on the frame. Both barrels are on face with proper breach and water table clearances. Me, I think they used heavy duck loads until the solder gave way and the switched barrels. I will let you know when I get it back.

Re: Info on Spanish guns por favor Run With The Fox 09/28/21 12:05 PM
Ed, I can only wonder how the Spanish made guns that Ernest Hemingway either used himself, or gave to friends to shoot, made in Eibar, held up. Hemingway used all his guns hard, demanded reliable performance (his favorite esopeta was his 1928 era M12 12 gauge) and of course, was in love with Spain and Spanish speaking people. heat treating standards may have varied from one European country to another back in Hemingway's days- also, if I am correctly informed, many of the Spanish gunmakers did contracting work for the London makers.

you were lucky shooting both guns...

other opinions?

Yeah, here's mine. You're full of it. It didn't result in "an eruption", obviously. Why didn't it, ed, if it was unsafe?

Calm down Stanley Ed didn't say anything bad about your ground swatting covey shooting grandpappy.

Re: is it safe to shoot smokeless in twist barrels ? SKB 09/28/21 11:54 AM
Better to stay safe in your recliner and maintain that armchair xspurt status you have worked so hard to obtain frAnk.

It must suck to be that afraid of living.

Ted, I disagree with your take on shooting old guns. If you learn to buy old guns in nice shape they are rarely money pits. Becoming an educated buyer is not for everyone though, it takes work and finding the right gun takes patience. I waited years before I found the gun for me.

I shoot almost nothing but vintage guns and I rarely need to work on them(never have touched either of my shotguns for repair). My hunting partner shoots a British SxS from the 1880's and has put tens of thousands of rounds through it without a hiccup. Find one that has been well maintained and fits you, feed it appropriate ammo and you will rarely be disappointed.

Re: Choke percentages at different ranges L. Brown 09/28/21 11:12 AM
Re Dr. Jones, I recall that he came to some conclusions about skeet and single pellet breaks that, I think, pretty much surprised skeet shooters. Jones' analysis concludes that they're relatively common. Personally, that caused me to wonder whether maybe he needed to walk away from his computer, stroll around on a skeet field, and see how many unbroken targets he could find with holes in them. Plenty with one hole . . . some with even more than one. While his analysis might predict the likelihood of single pellet hits, can it predict the likelihood of single pellet breaks? The simple exercise of examining unbroken targets clearly shows that single pellet hits often fail to produce single pellet breaks.
