      Nicely done! Thanks for sharing!

      Now, what’s on the end of your barrels? I have never seen this before.

      Good shooting! Looks like all mourning doves. We are getting a lot of the Eurasian collared doves here in the last few years. They don’t count against your limit and they taste just as good.

      Unfortunately most of the doves here all headed south due to the weather. I’m heading down to Arizona to meet Larry towards the end of the dove season and we should enjoy more luck down there.

      I also use a 410 gauge for most of my dove shooting unless it gets windy, then I go to a 20 gauge.

      Here’s my dog waiting for the little speed demons.

      My neighbor just got back from a dove hunt in Argentina. He said he killed 3800 dove.
      I wouldn’t care to do that myself, but he goes down there about every year.

      When I was stationed down in South America I got tired of shooting doves and concentrated on the wild pigeons. Duck hunting was also good down there.

      Got back to my roots today.
      I put a Leupold VX-3i 1.5X5 scope on my old Marlin 336 .30/30
      Sighted it in.
      After forty six years my old dream gun as a kid still put a smile on my face.

      Not sure why I thought I need something bigger for deer hunting in the woods.

      The desire to experiment I guess.

      I may have to take the old rifle hunting this year.

      30-30 is a dear hunters dream come true. It resides with 308, 30-06, 45-70, and 358 Winchester in my personal best cartridges hall of fame, and it’s in the top three on that list.
      To date, I have still not shot any cartridge except 45ACP as much as the venerable old Marlin 30-30.

      Wow. Some beautiful shotguns shown here. I was viewing them rather lustfully when there began a commotion in my gun safe. I opened it up, and my recently acquired Fox Sterlingwoth announced that she can shoot as well as any of them there fluzzies. I said OK, but as i tried to close the safe door there was a buttstock blocking it. I was told flatly that if I didn’t take her out next weekend she would seize up her firing pins. Having acquired several decades of wisdom (the hard way!), I wisely apologized and made a promise. Lord, please do not let me forget.

      OK, with all these beautiful shotguns, I must try to keep balance in the universe by posting a photo of an ugly shotgun. I bought it yesterday at the gunshow in Albuquerque with the purpose of using it for cowboy action shooting. It was made in Brazil by Boito. The fit and finish is not what you might find on an American classic, but it is solid with perfect and shining bores. I took it to the range this morning, and between rounds at the trap range, they let me try it out to see if it functioned. It did. One round from each barrel. Two dead clay pigeons. With all them guys watching, I knew when to quit. I said “I guess it works” and fired no more. I ain’t dumb. You got to know when to quit. They did say it looked like a fun gun, and several fondled it. I wiped their prints from it when I got home.

      As for the orientation of the attached photo, I am perplexed. It looks different on my phone compared to when I open it. If it is upside down when you open it, obviously your computer monitor is upside down.

      28 south of Abilene (2 shooters – 20ga), 2 at El Campo, (6 shooters) wrong side of the cut cotton field. I didn’t get a single shot. Other side sounded like a war zone, on & off. Must not have hit many as there were many 3 shot bursts.
