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.

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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
