Beretta Silver Snipe?

3 posts in this topic

I was given my Grandfather's 1963 Beretta Silver Snipe. Does any one have any information about this type of gun? I know that I can not shoot steel through it, but what about Bismuth or any of the other non-toxic shot out there?

I would like to continue to hunt with this gun. But with the non-toxic regulation for hunting on public land, am I only going to be able to use this gun on preserve hunts?

Any information about this type of gun and the type of shot that I can shoot through it would be great.

Don't take opinions on using this gun for non tox shot. Find out from a knowledgeable gun smith, Or contact Beretta via their web site and shoot em an e-mail. You do not want to chance wrecking your grandfathers gun!!! I agree that these firearms should be kept in use if they are capable of handling today's loads. Goood luck, Brent

Brent,

I have contacted Beretta, their response was no steel, but did not mention any of the other no-tox shot.

When I got their customer satisfaction survey after their response, I filled it out asking about other types of no-tox shot. Hopefully they will reply.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
