Tron, why don't you just come down to Stoney Ridge,OHIO....less than an hour from you. Shoot some TRAP in the WINTER and I'll give you my SKB to take back and work on ?? Shoot and get Work? I'll even pay for your rounds ! (4 MAX). DEAL ?
Consider that a deal....but, as my friends will attest to, I will not shoot registered targets when it's below 60 degrees (not kidding). You don't have to pay for my rounds either. Are you talking registered?
TRON, how about doing a EOTECH sight test on that budget single shot trap gun you fiddled with a while back. The gun name is not comeing to me. Or even better try out some of the budget holographic sights on something.
We talk a lot about chokes (whose are "best") and patterns, but no ones really looked at this.
Here's the idea - take one shotgun, and several identical chokes from the same manufacturer and see how they pattern - looking for consistency both in choke designation and from choke to choke from the same company.
I thought your artistical talents had you off and running on a second business. I don't know what you would have received on a commission basis, but the masterpiece obviously never reached it's full potential. Have a good day, Bob
Tron, do what I'm doing this winter. I've been working in the big garage/workshop loading every hull for shotgun/rifle/pistol that I have componets for. Keeps me busy between corn burner refillings. Once I have everything loaded then I can start polishing the HD's.
If you're that bored come over to Ohio as I could use the help.....the pay isn't great but the wife's cooking is great!
What sort of stuff does she cook? Can she make meat pies? My Nana used to make meat pies that were out of this world. I also like a really good pot roast....is she any good at pot roast?? I've seen some people really screw up a pot roast and I just don't get it.
It may be a bit far for you....but we are in the middle of a remodel on the clubhouse. All the beer you can drink while you are working....'course if you cut a finger off you are "on your own" and you won't get anymore beer.
The winter here in northeast Ohio can be long but I find the best way to handle it (shooting interest-wise) is go to the gun club twice a week and shoot (we shoot the bull, drink a lot of coffee and shoot trap.) Also, get caught up on your reloading will keep the winter blues to a minimum. I don't dislike the winter as the old saying, "..everybody complains about the weather but no one does anything about it." This is my first year of being retired and after working a job 50 hours a week, it took adjustment. Not bragging but sure to feel lucky to be able to be retired. Enjoy the winter. Darrell
