My Bernardelli SxS. As I remember I had more birds than the one in my hand, but Steve did outshoot me on the pen raised quail.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite malfunction.

Digger's protests not-withstanding, I successfully shot the new course Saturday and Sunday with Cyl/IC.

After shooting Hink's Rizzini, I was struck by the fact that 3/4 oz of payload is all you needed. I was almost embarassed shooting 1 oz of 7's. :oops: :oops:

On another note, Nick's 3/4 high velocity reloads were remarkably soft recoiling in all the 16 bores I shot it in. I can hardly wait for them to be available! :lol:

YOU SHOT FACTORY 2.5" SHELLS AT THE FLATWATER? DID YOU AT LEAST SAVE THE HULLS? DID YOU CALL YOUR FAVORITE HOTELIER FOR ADVICE? NO, YOU DID NOT. HE WOULD HAVE PROVIDED YOU SHELLS AS HE DID FOR ATTICUS........2.5"ERS WITH 3/4 OUNCE OF 8s.
