    If some are blacking out their beads or removing them, and never look at the barrel, they why bother with a rib at all?

    I had a model 12 with a solid rib and on a hot day the vapor that was coming off the barrel made it look like a mirage in the desert.

    I'm not sure yet if it's the cold Alaska winters yet as I haven't tried it in the summer.

    What I do know is there is absolutely no recoil but I am having trouble hitting the clays......I took my barrel off.

    I took the gun off, tried throwing the shells at the targets.

    Which shells are better to throw, 7.5 or 8's???!!!

    I have a 32" plain barrel model 12 duck gun that I put a trap stock on and I shoot it for fun about every 6 months. It is the highest shooting gun I own! If I can remember to stay under the bird more than my other guns it just smokes the targets.

    Rumor has it that Adam shot with one rib less.

    Sometimes I shoot with my rib, sometimes she says at home.

    Several years ago a shooter from our club won the Washington State handicap with a 98 from the 24 with a remington model 48 auto with no rib so it can be done.Jerry

    I started to be a Jerk and respond that I seldom shoot without bibs...then I saw the title was about ribs. Sorry. Ed

    How about "no underwear". At least not as likely to get "arrested" as the shooting nude deal. lol.
