  1. It's actually going to be pretty mild Sunday, in the low 50s, and cloudy too. Call me crazy but I prefer clay shoot'n when the sky is overcast. Having the clouds up there gives me a better sense of speed as I track the target. Yanno, you are only a few miles from 287. I'll be literally driving right by you. If you want to come, I'll be happy to give you a lift. The only caveat is you'd be in for the full ride. I'm the first in and last out.
  2. No worries, I got another suc...ehh, I mean early bird with a thrower getting there by or before 0830.
  3. Wagon or a hand truck. If I have room in my truck, I'll bring a hand truck.
  4. Soooo, dunno why we are talking about President Trump in a Feindstein thread but, whatever. I looked into the unpaid contractor story years ago when it was first manifested by the libtarded socialist media. The story is like 2% true, Trump withheld payment to a contractor that was trying to get one over on Trump. The contractor installed several hundred cheap windows that were not what was ordered for the project, and they didn't get paid. If Trump screwed over a contractor, the leftards in the same retarded corrupt court that is suing him for overvaluing property would be suing him for unpaid invoices, and there would be contractors all over the place badmouthing him on TV every three minutes. FAKE NEWS and that's enough of that. Please, no more derailing threads with TDS. Thank you very much.
  5. Just look for Old Glory, and a white Chevy Silverado extended cab.

  7. There's a reason I call this "turning money into noise". None the less, in spite of the great fun we all have, everyone does get a little bit better each time. Take @Mrs. Peelfor instance, it took three years but I eventually got her to break two clays in a row.
  8. You need to buy four or five for it to be a good deal.
  9. Manually cycled actions like bolt, lever and pump, break action, are not subject to AWB rules as they are not semi-auto. You can put anything, or nothing, on a 700.
  10. You should unfriend them, just for that weekend.
  11. I think with Sta-Bil, one can only hope for about 18 months of storage if the conditions are absolutely ideal. Even at that, gasoline will still degrade and loose some of its potential for energy. ie lets say you normally get 25mpg with fresh gas, 18 month old gas with Sta-Bil may only give you 20mpg. Still, better than nothing. The best use for Sta-Bil is prep for over winter storage of small engines. It keeps carbs from getting gacked up with the gelatinous goo caused by the ethanol soaking up water.
  12. That largely depends on how much we run our mouths. Sometimes I only go through two or three boxes of ammo because I spend too much time BSing. Other times I'll blow through 150 rounds. The basic rule of thumb is: If you are just gonna shoot a little with a loaner to see what clays is all about, bring a couple boxes of 12ga #7.5 or #8 and a box of dounuts and we're good. If you come with a case of ammo, you better come with a case of clays too, and donuts.
  13. I'll take four pounds. Ha, I made a reloading joke.
  14. Yanno, you are right. I'm so used to regulation trap that I keep forgetting WMAs are hunter training areas. Even so, I dunno who would want to spend a morning shooting full house #6, that'd be expensive and painful.
  15. For busting clays, yes and no. Nobody is winning any trap shoots with a Shockwave, but man I do have fun trying to bust a few with mine. It's not a bad idea to try and hit a few clays with whatever shotgun one intends to use for HD. It's good fun practice. My My 18" taktikalized 870 does not "dust" clays but it consistently breaks clays because the reflex site makes targeting stupid easy. I like to let new shooters use the 870 because it's a confidence booster and the red dot also helps noobs understand target tracking. A shorter barrel will reduce velocity somewhat but if you use the right chokes, you can still do very well.
  16. Yes. If using an AR in any capacity is part of your self/home defense plan in FL, it will be beneficial. And, they're just cool. Maybe if you start showing up at FL ranges with suppressors, it may encourage others to do the same. I guess the gun regs in England are already very strict so almost anyone that wants a suppressor gets to have one easy peasey. Over there it is practically rude to show up without one. They very much value their hearing. EDIT: As a Floridian, you have access to many thousands of acres of feral hog hunting lands with virtually no limits. A suppressor would be nice to have.
  17. Check out JSE Surplus. They have an upper for every budget and have an excellent reputation. You can have them do all the compliance work and ship it directly to you.
  18. Looks like we will have at least three throwers. Maybe we'll do doubles again. It is the absolute best most fun way to throw away money.
  19. 12, 20, 16, 410, whatevah you want to bring, lotsa folks shoot 20's and do pretty damned good too. The only rule is shot size, has to be #7.5 or #8. That's actually a great price. I've been paying about $20-22 per 135 ct crate of White Flyer AAs.
  20. At these events we stick to a strict "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
