    How about wantonly wounding hundreds of birds and not making an attempt to get them?

    Might as well add using guns capable of hold more than 3 shells to the list too...

    If he is a decent guide, he should give your money back, after all their name was on the charges( I heard about them as well). And yes, I would find a different outfitter to go with.

    Because it's really hard to count to 50 a bunch of times?

    This one made me laugh. Matchsaverz shell holders are a split second slower than floating a 4th with some practice and completely legal. Modifying autoloaders to float the fourth is so 2007. :l

    Obviously it must be if they got busted a week or so later

    I think it comes down to YOUR values. If your willing to pay money to someone who is willing to violate GF&P laws, then you probably shouldn't be surprised when other issues arise. It is not that difficult to keep an accurate count on the number of birds that have been shot.

    It probably is when there's 15-25 guys intentionally getting birds to a certain range then flock shooting them, that's going to create a ton of sailing birds. Birds that get hit but don't go down right away or have enough strength to get back to the water but end of dieing when they get there.

    Do what you want but I'd stay away from TT.

    This is 2nd hand info, but I was told they were ticketing guys in Texas who were hunting waterfowl with devices like the Matchsaverz.

    Not that I would care to ever use one,,, but are matchsaverz illegal to use? Here in Canada, the regs state that the gun cannot hold more three shells in the magazine and chamber combined.
