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.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
