1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Shown here for sale is my Remington 1100 Skeet-T. This fine shotgun is only slightly used and shows no wear at all. Please note the internals were removed and stored for preservation and the buttstock was removed and sold. The forend is made from microscopic chips that were gathered from a 1/2 mile radius surrounding our gun club and from my father's hand (surgically removed with expert precision). The receiver is ventilated for cooler operation and the barrel is made from the finest "twist" steel. Bluing is perfect. I will take $2500.00 shipped or buyer can pay ER bill.

    Actually this happened around 1987 and my father only suffered minor injuries (Can't say that about the gun).

    Fine looking piece of iron... as that's all it is now. Glad to hear your pop survived. Now tell us the story behind this "modification".

    Looks like the results of a barrel obstruction to me. The Old Remington "All-American" hulls had a plastic insert that used to plug barrels When it shot loose after too many reloads.

    My father wanted to try my new 1100 skeet gun that I'd only owned for a few days so we shared it for a round of skeet. A friend joined us so we had a squad of three. My father was having problems with his reloads not having any powder and had several bloopers that fired the primer only (he was infamous for that, LOL!) We kept a stick handy and punched out several wads. I was a bit nervous and didn't want him to shoot any more of those shells so when we got to station three I intended to let him shoot, then I was going to give him my shells. Well, as luck would have it, he fired at a low 3 and my friend and I were literally knocked back by a concussion that actually hurt my sinuses. Next I knew the gun was on the ground and my father was holding his hand. I took him to the ER and he ended up with a few splinters that they removed and about 4 #9 shot in his hand along with a cracked bone and damaged tendons. They left the shot in his hand and sent him home. He recovered fully but that gun just wouldn't heal. The gunsmith and Remington both said it was a double load of Red Dot. My father said it was a weak damn Remington barrel.

    He has passed on since then and I miss him so much. Even though the gun was ruined he was ok and we kidded each other for many years about that incident and were both thankful to have each other until his death at 91 years of age.

    I wouldn't trade that hunk of metal for a new ROLEX. Oh, I love and shoot Remington 1100's. Mark

    I don't think a double charge of powder will do that Mark, extra lead over red dot is a different story. What kind of press was he loading on? Great that you were able to enjoy his companship. Bob

    I had a Skeet B do the same thing to me in appx 1975. Called Remington and they said send it to us. Charged me freight both ways about $38.00 and replaced the gun that I shoot to this day.
    My ears rang for a few days and left hand hurt like H***. I was lucky it was cold and I had on coveralls and a heavy work glove on my left hand. Oh yeah, new shells, I believe RXP's

    Jim, you said it right! I was waiting for that. Funny stuff!

    Red Dot is good powder but it is one of the few that can double load and still crimp. Also, if you notice many charts, when the amount is increased the pressure increases very quickly; more so than most other powders. In those days most loading recipes called for Green Dot or something else if you wanted to step up velocity. Red Dot would build pressure much too quickly.

    After a discussion with a thoughtful member on this forum I'm going to donate this gun to my gun club to use for safety training. Mark
