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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
