Hunt on Monday

I should have taken more. I should also taken a course in how to work an I pod.

Is the Auto-5 yours or your son's? Always thought those were pretty guns.

Mine. It's a Light Twelve. I have the Sweet Sixteen also. My Deer Rifle is a Browning, too. BAR .30/06. I know I should trade it for a 10 inch AR and brain the Deer instead of a heart/lung shot, but I'm old fashioned. I like the Light Twelve for Pheasant and Grouse, but use a Remington for Duck and Geese. I read that steel shot is too hard for the older Browning barrel's.

I had a BAR in 300 win mag a long time ago. It was a great gun, but there was just nothing in Arkansas that I needed it for so I sold it in 1993 or maybe 1994. If it had been in 'less' of a caliber, I might have kept it, but in my situation/location it just didn't make sense on a practical level, and it was too expensive to shoot for entertainment purposes, so I got rid of it shortly after we moved to arkansas.

There's really nothing here that a .30/06 can't handle. My Son's father in Law bought a Ruger in .300 Magnum to go Elk hunting. Now he doesn't know what to do with it. Too much for even our large Whitetail, and Bear Licenses are a once in a 4 year deal. I suggested Red Squirrel's, no cleaning, no muss, no fuss.

I've always thought that A rem 1100 was the best looking and handling repeater. Hard to beat the handling of an LC smith sxs, tho

Never liked the Remington 1100. We had them when I was on an EOD team, we mounted them on our remote mechanical investigators years ago. Very temperamental on the ammunition it works with.

That's my Remington 1100 in the picture. It's reliable with high brass, high power loads. Not good with low brass skeet loads. It's a good handling gun. Since I don't shoot skeet, too hard to cook, the low brass thing doesn't bother me.
