In this Shotgun Life story, a few women put the Ithaca Model 37 With Ladies Stock Pump Gun through its paces at https://goo.gl/gq9ubo Peer Review: The Ithaca Model 37 With Ladies Stock Pump Gun Shuck a pump gun and testosterone immediately triggers fireworks in the brain – even if the gun is specifically designed for women.

  6. Here’s some great information from Jimmy Muller of Müller Competition Chokes that busts the myth of shotshell velocity. Shotshell Velocity: Speed DOESN’T Kill Here is my experience regarding shot shell velocity in a nutshell: the faster you push the payload the more you and your accuracy will suffer. With today’s marketing propaganda being all about “Hyper Sonic Velocity” and “Speed Kills” slogans, target shooters and especially waterfowl hunters are being sold a bill of goods, resulting in a situation that is not only negatively effecting their shooting capabilities, but is also hurting our health and longevity for the sports we love. Here’s what’s happening: The best patterning loads are between 1145 – 1250 feet per second (FPS). The worst are ones that exceed 1350, and the new hunting loads that exceed 1400 are outright worthless. READ THE REST OF THE ARTICLE AT https://mullerchokes.com/blogs/blog Source

Find out on Shotgun Life at https://goo.gl/QYQQkN Stepping Down in Gauges To Better Performance Story | Photo by Ron Spomer In the 1960s pheasants were big game birds in South Dakota, the upland equivalent of Canada geese.

Check it out on Shotgun Life at https://goo.gl/urvC2d The CZ Sporter Over/Under Proves to be a Super Value I learned of the CZ Sporter shotgun improbably.
