    Decided to do some trapshooting after retiring from the telethon? LOL

    Is there a Gra-coil on there?

    Nice looking gun and I hope you break a gazillion targets with it.

    But I do have a question?

    What gun club opens at 1am in the morning to shoot?

    Thank you!

    BustiShooter09,

    That wood is much nicer than mine. I love my KX. Great balance and swing. When researching the gun, some people were complaining about recoil. If you get the stock adjusted for you (adj. recoil pad, stock length) recoil won't be an issue.

    Enjoy the Kgun.

    Enjoy it. I shot one for a number of years and well I might add.

    Why would he need a gracoil? Recoil is minimal.

    Don you know how it is. Someone shoots one that is not adjusted or fit for them and it kicks the shit out of them so now everyone of them are kicking machines and ain't worth a hoot.

    Very nice gun! I am against adding anything metal, and mechanical on a stock. I like the wood to be in tact. As I have posted before. Once it is cut off, it is gone, and so is the value of the upgraded wood. Just did not know if the stock was cut, because you can't see the end of it. I absolutely am not recommending one. Bought my KS-5 used, with upgraded wood and really wish that the Soft-Touch comb did not use the original wood. Actually would prefer to see the whole stock, otherwise what is the point of upgrading the wood. This picture was taken while experimenting with a 3/8" add-on rib. Otherwise, you can hardly see the posts.

    No no Gracoil on this gun stock pad for now(maybe the only thing I may change)

    I messed up on the club open time lol but I was there at 11am sharp.

    I opened it up and did some reading and put the Modified choke in and went out to shoot 4 rounds. Scores right out the case with only choke change were 25 21 24 24 Could have done better but we had a couple youngsters "filled" the house and didnt fill the whole turret and caused calls that were not nice but still only had 4 letters.

    94 not bad with the distractions and recoil wasnt bad could do a 300 target day with it no problem.

    Jerry Lewis PS the telethon thing is older then me I was named after my dad and He didnt change his name from Joseph Levitch (Jerry Lewis sounds way cooler!! JUST ASK Jerry LEE who also is round my dads age!)!!!

    You are so lucky, that's really neat - glad you got such a good deal. Are you on Facebook? Maybe you could do a video of your first session with it. If I were you, I couldn't wait either. Wow, so cool!

    It took me five rounds before I dialed in my first 25 with mine. But that adjustable rib works well when you need to fine tune it. I haven't touched the rib in over a year. You'll love the gun. It is a fine instrument.
