Gun lock problems....<<<<<<<<<<<<<HELP>>>>>>>>>>>>

5 posts in this topic

I bought a new scope last wknd at the big retailer in Owatonna. Went to the range to site it in today and the trigger lock that they put on the gun it still on it. I called them and they told me to drill it out. Anybody try this before? Anything I should worry about before I try? Don't really have time to drive to Owatonna if don't need to. Thanks.

Use 2 vice-grips, one on each post. Twist in opposite directions, working back and forth until it breaks free.

I didn't want to twist anything around the trigger so I drilled it out. It worked, back to the range tomorrow. Saved me a trip and money (couldn't go back without spending more) smile.gif

I just had this same thing happen to me at Dick's Sporting goods in Minnetonka. Got my gun home and trigger lock from the store was still on with no key to unlock it. I drilled it out. Wonder what's going on????

When you bring your gun into Cabela's, they put the lock on at the service counter. By the time I picked out my scope and they mount it (for free), you also shop a little....will by the time I left, I forgot about it. You pay for the scope back in the gun department so it's easy to forget about. Thanks god I had to site it in before opener. It would of been a son of a gun to get to dear camp and pull the gun out in the morning and find it locked.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
