Just got back from the range in B-ville, I love the trigger, but I am still getting used to the Heine straight eight sights. seems like everything I was shooting was low and left 20 yards. I was shooting free hand no rest. I feel it was the remmy bulk pack ammo I was using, the CCI brass loads I had seemed to shoot better. I could take the center out at 7 yds. Course it didn't help that the guys next to me were pelting me with 9mm casings, and the police training that was going on in the wing next to me. 5 guys emptying full mags at 10 feet as fast as they could pull the trigger. when I get comfortable with the gun I will post targets

picksbigwagon, NICE artillery!! MY 1st handgun was a Taurus. I believe it was a model 66A,(.357 double action, stainless revolver). I wish NOW that I'd never traded it for a .357 cal Winchester 94 trappers rifle. I'm sure you'll be happy with 'er. Phred52

Just got back from the range at the casino (actually in the health club, but right next to the casino), and I think I solved my problem with low and left. I was using the wrong grip with my 1911 and I was allowing my trigger finger to get in too deep (boy does that sound wrong doesn't it?) A guy was there who was shooting a springfield 1911, didn't like his at all, too font heavy and the beavertail was too small.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
