She did good found one bird and worked it for about 200 yds before flush it was running through rye grass. Harvested with 28GA O/U  purchased from Tony broke some clays with it 1st time hunting 28GA worked out real nice Great caliber to hunt over dog.

I use the range at Stafford but haven't never hunted birds there.  We usually go to Collier's Mill.  I live 10 minutes from the Medford wma.  We just got a lab/Brittany mix. 13 weeks old.now.  Will get her out next fall. 

Was actually just researching 28ga.  Probably going to go with the G2 by CZ in 28ga. A lot of 28s are built on a 20ga frame.  The CZ is built on a 28 frame. It's got everything I want. Straight English stock. Double triggers and multiple chokes.  And it's under a $1k. 

Congrats on the great hunt. Nice work by the dog.

That sounds like an interesting mix.  Is the lab-brittany combo a thing with hunting dogs or did it just work out that way. 

I doubt the combo is recognized by the AKC or Field Dog Stud Book yet but the Labrador/Brittany or Labany exists.

Will be interesting to see if the dog will point or flush. I had a Brittany and he was a pointer but would not hold for long time had to speak to him or he would flush early. But he was very good on runners. One place i use to pheasant hunt years ago ( 1990s )  had black lab and he would point which is unusual they are usually flushers i would bring my short hair and they hunted together.

The litter was an accident. Lol. The father is a 95lb English lab. The mother is a 45lb white liver American Brittany.  

My boys have been wanting a dog and this dog was way  less $$ than a full bred puppy.  And it's a breed that can potentially hunt.  

Here is the pycho aka Mindy laying on my wife.  Lol

Those are the eyes of a retriever.  Have u had that crazy bitch in the water yet?

Other than the white patch on her chest and her rear feet having white hair you'd think she's all lab. 

Other than some large mud puddles at Medford wma , no. .  She loved the snow today.  

She gets her final shots tomorrow. Then she'll be okay to be around other dogs. I haven't had a dog in over 25 years. All new ground for me.  Training has started with the basics. 

She's 24lb at 14 weeks so we are thinking she's gonna be all lab.

will be interesting to see how she does, try and get wing to hide in the yard and see if she picks up on it that was how i started meadow out. I did not put it out every day every couple days i would put it somewhere i also hid it in a tree limb for her to find. I started at 9 months but i dont see why you cannot start sooner. Most dogs will not point unless it is live bird.

    • Selling a very good condition Bulgarian Makarov, used as a paperweight for about 3 years, comes with 2 magazines. Has factory Bakelite grips. Asking $500 all said and done, willing to drive or ship to FFL.
    • In my previous Pennsylvania life, I would often pocket carry.  In 2020 I spent 2 weeks vacation in Mississippi and Tennessee and pretty much carried everywhere.  It was great.  If you felt the ground shake in August of that year, it was because New Jersey residents visited Jefferson Davis' home in Biloxi.    Back to reality.... I will assume that it would be difficult to qualify with a pocket pistol that has a 10 yard range on a good day. But I have back up plans...
    • Regarding Murphy's absurd attempt to make all private property off-limits by default (which would 100% be overturned under Bruen): I think (hope) he may have a difficult time getting that through the legislature. Check out these two Politico articles, which specifically mention new Senate Majority Leader Scutari's reluctance to move on gun legislation. The Dems are very concerned about losing control of the NJ legislature in the 2023 elections. Perhaps we should organize grassroots lobbying. Phil Murphy's first 2024 hurdle: New Jersey Democrats As Gov. Phil Murphy tries to burnish his image as someone who's putting progressive policies to work, he faces a major obstacle: A skittish Legislature led by members of his own party.  https://www.politico.com/news/2022/06/25/phil-murphys-new-jersey-democrats-00041676 Scutari: Democrats strayed too far left in 2021 Scutari, though a North Jersey Democrat, has developed alliances with members of his party from South Jersey. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/04/19/scutari-democrats-too-far-left-2021-00026236
    • Unlike the FARS FID/P2P process for checking references by email.  The references on my carry applications have never been contacted, to the best of my knowledge. That's the purpose of having them sign in ink.  It's pretty much up to the Detective doing your background check to determine if he feels it is necessary to contact them.
    • So now that it's a reality, what are some recommendations for some good carry guns? I currently have a CZ P01.  It's a little heavy (28.1 oz unloaded) put could be carried.  Pros, it's a CZ.  I shoot it pretty well.  If round capacity restrictions are struck down I can easily buy standard 14 round mags for it. I also recently held a Glock 43X.  It weighs 18.7 oz unloaded).  It comes with 10 round mags but there are 15 round aftermarket ones available if things ever change. I've also recently discovered the CZ P-10 Micro-Compact.  It's smaller and lighter (20.1 oz) than my PO1 but only holds 7 rounds.  Being a CZ fan it caught my eye. So what are you carrying if you have been carrying.  And what are some suggestions for a carry gun?
