Gun Question

7 posts in this topic

I need a different gun and fast for the upcoming early goose and subsequent duck season. There is a gun shop next to my house that has a Bakail...or something like that...12 gauge 30inch barrel auto. Its some russian made thingy...looks nice...is pretty light. Anyone know anything about this gun, anyone shot it? Otherwise I'll probably just buy a new benelli nova pump...there about the same price.

I have the baikal and love it. I used it for 2 seasons now and havent had any problems with it. The 3.5 in capability is nice. grin.gif

these russian made guns are now sold by remington under the spartan nameplate.

Yea remington bought them out and raised the price about 150 bucks. I dont think they changed anything on it though. I bought mine from capras before remington bought them out and paid only $250.

I have a beretta AL390. love the gun, I shoot trap, pheasants and geese with it. However, I'm starting to think about adding a nova to my gun lineup. I've become attached to my beretta as a trap and pheasant gun and all the mud and dirt from goose hunting takes its toll. I use a pump for deer, I love the reliability of knowing that its not going to jam no matter what kind of weather or crap I send throug it. So far the beretta has never let down, but the wear and tear is starting to show. Nothing worse than shooting a goose and aiming at the next, and seeing a jam. My browning was notorious for that.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
