    You know those barrel buttons that fit on your shoe laces so that you can rest your barrel on? On an O/U, which is the PROPER barrel to place onto the button? Is it the upper or lower and WHY? The person who answers this question correct wins a barrel button from me.

    Im guessing upper. Theres less of a chance for it to slip when you lean the butt forward.

    The upper. That way when the gun is broken open and held on the toe rest the angle keeps the bottom barrel off of your shoe.

    neither! You don't want your foot to look like this!

    Please notice, Tron did not say the gun would be broken open!

    Although Turmite Mike is a gross and disgusting poster, he is correct. Barrel buttons, along with release triggers and snap caps are the works of the Devil and should never be used under any circumstances.

    Mike, Email your address to my website and I will send you a barrel button. Nice work.

    Stay tuned for tomorrow's trivia givaway.

    WOW What a pattern. Was that 7 1/2s or 8s. Probably a skeeter using 9s.

    Snap caps cause accidental discharges when someone THINKS they have a Snap cap in the chamber. Anyway, since Turmite forfits his prize, I will give it to Yukonjack222 because he had the first answer. Email me with your address.

    Tron you never fail to entertain. You say that barrel buttons are evil and give one away for recognition of their evil nature. Keep 'em coming!

    I fail to see how you could blow a hole in your foot using a toe pad or barrel button. If I had my gun closed or was using a pump or auto, it would be uncomfortable to put the barrel on my toe. With the action open it's impossible to shoot the gun.

    Rastoff please don't take this the wrong way, but the key to Trons contest was the way he worded the question. He did not mention the gun or action being open.

    Tron, I hope I did not offend you by not taking the barrel button, but the fact that my toes are precious to me is why I passed.

    Snap caps don't cause accidental discharges any more than "dangerous roads" cause crashes.

    They both simply allow the stupid and incompetent to reveal themselves.

    Last summer Tron gave me a pair of wooly snap caps with brass colored heads. Is he trying to get me to shoot somebody?

    turmite(Mike),

    I take no offense. I was just poking fun at Tron for this little venture. You have to admit it's kinda funny, huh?

    On the serious side, I agree that anyone who puts a loaded and cocked gun on their toe deserves to walk with a limp. A while back I watched a guy insert a live round in his O/U, close the action, then reach down to tighten his choke with his hand. He didn't shoot his finger off, but I'd have been hard pressed to feel sympathy for him if he had.
