Y'know, maybe a little KY on the follower rod might keep my mini-30 from sticking.

Don't know if this would work but here is a quick idea.

10 gauge = super heavy
12 gauge = heavy
16 gauge = medium/heavy
20 gauge = medium
28 gauge = medium/light
410 = light

note: for 8 gauge (if anybody still has one of these) i would probablly just roll up a maxipad and tie some fishing line through it.


**** If you actually take this serious and plan on using please take a picture and post and I am sure Rich and the guys would use it in their magazine for tactical alternatives when out in the BUSH (lol!!!)***********

dad23honu,

Here is another version of your signature poem/tongue-twister:

I'm not a pheasant plucker.
I'm a pheasant plucker's son.
I'm only plucking pheasants
'til the pheasant plucker comes.

It takes practice to say it quickly without error. Good luck.

Will my shotgun tend to malfunction one week out of the month? Worse, will it be cranky, and unpredictable? And will I experience water-weight buildup that could contribute to rust and pitting?

Ok, my wife just caught me taking one of her rocket launcher's, I told her it was for my shotgun, she asked me if I was ok? I said yes, I explained what I was goin to do with it.
And then she ask's, " Do you know how to use it" I just walked a way

Hey CaCruisin:

Long time no talk. Thanks for your help with the Knoxx detachable box mag conversion for my Mossy 500. Works like a charm. You and Knoxx are the BEST!!

Only problem is, since I started cleaning it with Tampax, it has this psychotic craving for chocolate once a month.

Thanks for the tongue twister. I learned mine down at UCSB 20 years ago and got good at saying it after many many beers.
