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.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
