Great yarn mate.
I reckon one of the best things you can do is take a young fella shooting.
Get im out of the house, away from the playstation!
Like you said, do more than your share...

I needed that wonderful story resurrected! BTW: "Remington's magazine plug for the first 870s was a solid steel one, and weighing over 1 1/4 lbs. " I covet these!

Dave, I've been poking around this site for a year and a half, ever since my wife gave me an 870. I have enjoyed your posts more than any, and I thank you sincerely for all of the wisdom that you share here. I especially enjoy this type of story, you're a very good writer.

I'm also a Dave McC...

Thanks, folks. I spend much of my Net time elsewhere these days, but it's nice to stop by and see my stuff is still pleasing folks.

Gordo, mine, being totally useless, is still around. It's not for sale, I'm determined to find something it's good for.

Mainah, the full handle is Blake David McCracken. Appalachian-American and proud.....

"Appalachian-American", eh? Another Hillbilly; notice: no quotes and a capital "H". Good folks, indeed!

Thanks, again, from me, too.

Bob, Pop was born in Clearfield County, PA. So were his father and three generations before.

McCracken County KY supposedly named for kin of GGG father.

Scots Irish witha dash of NA and PA Dutch on that side. Irish Catholic and Sicilian on Mom's. She was born near Wilkes-Barre.
