Default What did we do before YouTube?

After talking to Bonnie and reading on line, I discovered I had to take my new Beretta shotgun apart and clean her before we went to the trap club. After a few %#*# and &*}#% a bandaid and a YouTube, it is cleaned and re-lubed. The trigger assembly was easy, but the breech bolt slide and extractor gave me some issues. The YouTube had a different Beretta and you slid the extractor and breech bold slide in that gun without attaching the operating rod first. I got them stuck and couldn't get them out without the rod being attached. That is where the swear words started. Got that back together and then the metal on metal barrel tang got stuck sliding on and I could get it to slide in or off......second set of swear words. Finally with some lube and a little screwdriver slipped in a small hole for leverage, it slipped off. I also realized I didn't have the connecting rod seated correctly so another disassemble and reassemble. After it bit me sliding on the barrel (this is where the bandaid comes into play), it is done. I feel accomplished and a little sore.

Not bad for a girl who didn't know where a trigger was on a gun two months ago.

I don't expect everything handed to me. Just set it down anywhere. Unknown
