    Dangit Drundel! I don't know whether to thank you or not for those pics! HOW MANY DAYS?!?!?!!?!?

    I'll have a bit of a drive for the dove opener as I have to go to the other side of the state (WA).

    Probably use a 20g Citori XS Skeet target gun. It has been raising hell with the local dairy farm starlings :l

    Very cool Drundel!

    Love the site and the countdown timer:l ...well, maybe when it get closer to a week away:(

    Why don't you use the 391 for doves? I would think a little quicker than the 1100. Ever tried hunting doves with a 20 or 28 gauge?

    I need to update that page BIG TIME!

    I use my O/U mainly because I can find the hulls faster and get to the birds much faster w/o worrying about lost hulls. Yea the 391 is much faster than the 1100. Started out hunting with a 1100 LT-20, got no problems but the 12 doesn't kick to much and I don't mind weight so no need yet.

    Yeah I switched to a O/U because I got tired of picking up shells and spending time looking for empties in the tall grass. Also, my Ruger will shoot anything and my Semi disliked some reloads.
