I took photo's of all my guns per insurance agent and also gave them the serial numbers.

I also called a gun shop and asked them what the replacement cost would be.

Of course you will be looking at a rider if you are insuring a larger dollar amount.

I am looking at a rider, I went to gun broker, searched all my guns and averaged the prices, came up with double what I thought I had. also took pictures and made a list by make, model and ser#. some of them I believe are fairly old. not sure how to value them.

With a rider policy I think you are covered as far as what you can do. Just have the list of guns and serial numbers in case they are stolen so the police can enter then into NCIC. I've seen guns that were reported stolen 10-15 years and when they were recovered they were able to trace them back to the owner, of course you would have already received an insurance payment from the insurance so the guns would belong to the insurance company.

I am going through this same procedure, trying to figure out each insurance company is interesting.

I was told by my insurance agency that I need to do the same, take pictures, and document models and serial numbers. The weird part comes in with replacement cost vs actual value.

For example you may have an original Winchester model 12 that to a collector is worth over $1500 but a replacement 12 gauge pump may only cost $500. Sure gets irritating, when you think you are insured for its true value and not what the replacement cost is...

Good Luck

If you can get your hands on a gun bible it has values based on condition, brand, gauge, etc. take pics of the firearm, serial numbers and I would also make copies of the pages with the est gun values so you can share/ discuss them w your insurance agent.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
