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.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
