I understand that they are not bad guns it's just the nut that holds the trigger that is the issue. When Pheasent hunting with this gun point the first shot in any direction ( away from fellow hunters) as it's only the second shot that kills the bird.

KGT said...

Ha ha Ernie..you know well about the second shot, which is generally made easier when the bird is stuck in a crotch of tree branches.

Then again, one could use a SWAT gun and BLEND the poor birds with 00 Buckshot.

hmmm. judging from the photo that has been provided, my keen eye tells me that the trigger guard is likely to slice into the knuckles of the shooter's hand, causing pain and discomfort not to mention flinching and inaccuracy.

I'll give you $300 for the gun and you keep the trigger guard.

Ernie said...

I believe it was the second shot that drove the afformentioned bird inot the multi floral tree with the bird busting, not but busting, branches. Not sure about $300 even with the trigger guarg though.

Ernie said...

Can't we get spell check on this blog site? I seem to have as much trouble with that as I do with the first shot!

Didn't I see a trigger guard cushion on the NECG website for those who have trouble handling pop guns?

Jim Tantillo said...

hope I didn't offend with the $300 comment. Actually I think the strategy of setting the bidding at $800 is a good one, I take it the reserve is $1000? and giving the option of buying outright for $1300 is good too. let us know if you have any nibbles.

KGT said...

YES you offended me you snobbish bastard! Now BUY the damn gun.

Just kidding. Really, it is a beautiful gun, shoots light loads well, would be great for a right handed upland person. I talked to marlin and they say they have heard many requests asking for the 12 ga in a much heavier "waterfowler" version. Apparently I am not alone in wanting this gun to be something it isn't.

On the flip side, thanks to Jeremy Dietrich, I now have a beautiful Ideal grade LC Smith (real, not Marlin) that I will take great pride in becoming expert with. Feels great, goes up nice. Will have to be fed expensive bismuth, but oh well. Just dropped a pile o cash at Turnbull to get her all ready to go. Its a darling of a gun by all accounts.

And, I still have the Savage Fox BE. So I got THAT goin for me as Thousand Islands/ Black Lake sneaks up on us.

Ernie said...

Hey Tantillo, since when did you ever care about hurting Keith's feelings? Have you ever gone back and read some of the crap you publish? Is this a new sensitive side of the Blendinator we have neer seen?

the blendinator said...

you know, you're right. I take it all back--and I wouldn't give you $200 for the gun even if you threw in a SWAT gun on the side. so there.

ps. my SWAT gun's chamber is longer than your Elsie's chambers. so I got THAT goin' for me.

KGT said...

:)

I have heard its not the length of the chambers, but what you DO with them that counts.

I'M generally satisfied with my BAG, so my chambers must be "right-sized" for my expectations.

Sheesh, somebody get us back on the road here...

Jim Tantillo said...

seven minutes left, no bids. the suspense is killing me.

Ernie said...

JT, Does this mean that you now own the gun for the paultry price of $300, sans trigger guard?
