    Say you shoot a release in an automatic.

    You set the release then something happens (trap throws a bunch of broken targets, caller craps the bed, etc...) where you need to release the trigger without shooting the gun.

    How does this work?

    O/U I know you just move the lever and open up the gun but how does it work with autos?

    Hold the trigger and try to pull the bolt back with the other hand or press the safety?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Ljutics not a problem..just a learning process..while holding the trigger back reach over the gun with the other hand and push the lock with your index finger..your hand above the chamber will prevent the shell ejecting and your all set.

    For a 391, after you load the shell and close the bolt, press in the carrier stop push button which is in front of the trigger guard (I then shoulder my gun) and set the trigger. To unload, keep the trigger set, open the bolt with your off hand and the carrier stop push button will lock the bolt open, extract the shell.

    IS IT DIFFICULT TO PUSH THE BOLT BACK WITH YOUR LEFT HAND?

    No, all I do reach over the receiver and pull it back while keeping a grip and my finger on the trigger. It'll lock open. Practice doing this first before you do it on the line and it'll soon become second nature.

    This is not Rocket Science . It is a simple procedure with each type of gun . I have all , Auto`s , O/U and Ljutic releases and never had a problem .

    A shotgun with a release is a shotgun with a release. I went to one because the pull trigger had too much creep. A frog with a machine gun? That's in your mind. Stop using drugs.
