    Don, Not an upgrade, it's another Browning Citori but an older model, both guns have Midas grade chokes which makes them really look alike. I managed an 83 in doubles which wes about 6 above my average, so over all it was still a good day. Woody

    grntitan: This one is a whole lot better than the last one of this nature I saw, ReconDoc is the first one to post the mistake and try to straighten this out right away before the other person has to look for his (her) gun. I applaud him for this. Sure hope the person or one of his buddies reads T.S. and gets the message to him. Ross Puls

    There were only 5 shooters there , we were the only squad of doubles shooters today so it is a small group, the guns are nearly identical. so this should'nt take too long to straighten out, I hope so anyway. Woody

    I wasn't meaning anything negative against ReconDoc(Woody). I simply meant what i said. "Here we go again....." Basically i meant these threads usually get quite entertaining. I'll leave it at that.

    Hope you get your gun back in one piece Woody.

    Got a call from the guy who has my Browning, he was as surprised as I was when he realized he did'nt have his own Browning. Tomorrow we get together to swap them back and shoot a few rounds in the process, all's well that end's well. Merry Christmas to all. Woody Sullivan

    Maybe you guys should shoot the other's gun. This might be a sign that you each have the right gun now. LOL. Glad it worked out.

    Back when all the guns in the rack were either Model 12s or BT99s that was a common problem. Had a guy take mine home one time. On the plus side, he cleaned it better than I ever did!

    Great for her Jr.!! I shot a 96 that day and won a several hundred myself!! We didn't see the first few targets she shot with my gun but we watched the last 15 or so and it was nothing but a smoke exhibition!! I'm really tickled for her winnings! BTW, to get my gun back, I had to show her I'd painted the end cap on mine white in the indentation!! LOL

    Merry Christmas to you and the family!! Tell your mom I have another target smokin gun ifn she wants to "borrow" it too? :)
