Yea, if ya stack the beads in a figure 8, it'll shoot a bit high so you don't have to cover the bird when you go to pull the trigger. You just float the "bird" on top of the front bead and BAM!! The more room between the front and rear sight that you can see when shouldering the gun, the higher it shoots.(generally).My dad bought a 12 Ga Beretta BL-4 back in the early 70's to shoot trap with, didn't like it, gave it to me and I've been using it so long it's like a part of me when shooting. Quick on the target is what I always noticed. I've only ever shot birds with it (IC/M) and have done really well. He used an 870 and 1100, I like the 1100 OK, never really liked the 870, it is set up for trap/skeet and has a stock where you can't really line the sights up, shoots naturally high to hit a rising target I think was the purpose.
Take a one pound tannerite, an old fridge, drill a two inch hole through the door, place the tannerite on the middle shelf, directly behind the hole, ratchet strap the door closed, and shoot the tannerite from 100 yards.I'm not sure the amount of tannerite we blew up this weekend is legal!
Also on the hunt for a shotgun now...
I have a close friend who is one of the top snipers in the country and we used to shoot a fair amount. I learned something from him that I wouldn't have otherwise believed. He showed me how to clean the bore of my long distance shooting gun (223 with Mil-dot reticle) so that the cold bore shot could be accurately predicted, he pulls a bore snake through twice and that is it! Never any chemicals.I've got some cleaning to do after this weekend. Been using shooter lube for cleaning, and have been pretty happy with it. Wilson Combat oil user here too.
I built two as well - a rifle and a pistol. And - for good measure - bought a Barretta ARX-100! After last summer Kenosha, WI is WAY too close to the homestead...Yeah Floyd...good shit bro! I went all out last year....built 2 AR's, bought a bunch of ammo and was ready for the BLM asshats to invade my neighborhood!!
