    Liberty or death Jr.
  1. I paid $380 for mine in Max-4 brand new. Love then gun, I'd say decent deal, nothing special though. Should come with 3 chokes, IC, M and F, wrench, manual, and a box.
  2. Xpert HV 3" #4's, Kent Faststeel 2-3/4" and 3" #4's and Federal Speed shock #4's. As long as I keep the velocity at 1550 or more, I can kill ducks at all ranges I am comfortable shooting. Dropped a goldeneye with Xpert HV #4s at my MAX range, I wouldn't have bothered with the shot if that day wasnt so slow, thats the only duck I got. My guess is he was at least 45 yards away, and I'm pretty decent at judging bird distance.
  3. Precisionreloading.com is where I get mine, $11 to ship 40 lbs or less of steel shot, good quality shot, zink plated. Every size from F-#7's.
  4. I do know of force fetch, I plan on doing it, but I am not to sure about it, I've seen the process, and if you do it with the wrong dog, you chance ruining his birdyness. He is definately not gunyshy, I could bang a 10 gauge over his head while he is sleeping and he would wonder where the bird fell, not that I would do this. But he does it when he gets tired, which is kinda annoying cause sometimes he gets tired after 20 minutes of hunting, which does me no good. He will retrieve anything I throw, heck he was retrieving a screwdriver just a minute ago, but when I throw birds fresh dead or frozen, he tends to play with them, throws them up, flings them, he'll get it to me, but it is very annoying watching him mess with it. Then when I shoot a live on over him, he thinks its his bird, he'll play with it, pull feathers, walk away with it. The only time he does good is in water, cause he will bring it to the bank, but then its hit and miss from there. I think I am gonna force fetch him, and make sure I do it by the book. Its hard on the dog, and hard on the trainer, and my dog having half weimaraner, he doesn't respond well to training, or high pressures, which I've heard true weimaraners have a hard time with both.
  5. Well, he is out-doing my buddies 3-3 year old labs, which when I first hunted over them without tank, I thought they were pretty good dogs, but tank is out-doing them which is cool. But like yesterday, he will be working an area hard and doing great, and then for some reason he'll start following me for on reason, and we'll miss out on a big area he could be working that I KNOW there are birds in, didn't make sense to me. Pheasant is definately easier, just have to go in the brush and find the bird, and stay in range. With ducks he has to sit in a blind, bored, then stay while shooting is going on, go out, find the bird, and bring it straight back. I can see why that would be more difficult. He's doing allright for first season though.
  6. LMAO!!!!!!!! I didn't expect to see my face on there! Thanks for the laugh Tuck. Did I mention you need more hobbies?
  7. Federal Heavy field load #4's in a mod choke, thats all I use. My dad uses an over under with a Mod first shot Full second. We hunt pheasant over dogs and usually shoot anywhere from 20-50.
  8. All novas and supernovas shoot 3-1/2" shells. When in doubt, look at the barrel near the reciever on the shell ejection side, it will tell you the size of shells the gun will accept.
  9. SuperX 2 is a great gun, the MP-153/SPR-453 can be had for about $400 at walmart, they are a very durable gun. I saw the SX2 for $650 NIB on gunbroker.com the other day.
  10. Mine has had over 500 3-1/2" shells since I have owned it. She works just fine.
  11. These are from the other day, 4 grouse. Not many birds but my dog put them all up. The jack russel helped a bit. We limited out on pheasant the other day, he did great, got birdy, chased birds, put them in the air, retrieving isn't doing that great though. He'll get a couple and bring them back, but he will also grab the bird and walk away, or just sit and pull feathers. Won't chew the bird though. We just got back from pheasant hunting today, he worked his butt off, and I got one, should have got my 3 but my shooting sucked, and a lot of birds bailed before I got close, but not the dogs fault. He worked close. He has been doing great with upland. Ducks are iffy, he will bring them to the bank at least, but I rarely get a full retrieve.
  12. Federal Trueball through the Cylinder tube. I/C would be fine too. I don't think Remington Buckhammers are for smooth bores, but I have used them in a 20 gauge, and they are very accurate.
  13. Good choice, I love Xpert HV's, I use them when I don't have reloads. Kents are great too though, but I don't shoot those much.
  14. How do you guys have this problem? I have tried to duplicate this using a SBE, 2 SBE IIs, an M2, and a Legacy, I can bump it on the ground, soft, hard, bang it on the wall, shell in, shell out, I cannot get it to open and stay open, it will bump out a bit, like 1/8" or 1/4", but it goes right back in on its own.
  15. You got it right, they picked the benelli because of reliability, and they chose the gas system on the M4 because with all the attachments of theirs, it can mess with the inertia system. So they chose the gas system, you can find this information on Benelli's website.
