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.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
