Default Don't forget your Bird shot

Happy holidays to all, I thought it would be a good idea to mention Bird shoot to all the members. I know a lot of us have been building up our ammo piles, this stuff just happens to be one of the ammo types I have forgotten about, probably because it's always been easy to find.

Just a friendly reminder.

The last few seasons of dove and squirrel hunting, whatever left over was put away inside a Wal-Mart plastic 30 cal cans and the ones for the shotshells. I have gotten 3 each cans of number 7 1/2, 8, and 9 of 12ga and 20ga. Along with that have 2 cans each for the 12ga & 20ga of 4, 5, & 6. Steel shot has it's own cans too. I been doing very bad with upland so all these bridshot been building up. For squirrel with the law for hunting hunting squirrel with shotgun, with all that lead shot will you know the rest of the story's about lead free. Anyhow I'm good to go and only have to stock up a little more of the buck and slug. I don't waterfowl or turkey hunt so these shotshells is not stock for my but I did bought a box or two to used as my HD because buckshot and slug is to much for a city home/house.

I shoot 50 rds a month and am ok for quite a while.
Birdshot unlike rifle or pistol does not appear to lend itself to dry practice.
Thank you OP for the kind reminder to stock up ASAP.
Note of caution one club member bought I think 20 one hundred packs at Walmart.
Somehow this triggered a call to the police who met him in the parking lot.
No problem but who needs that !

What was the outcome of your friend exercising his 2A rights?

I'm heading to BPS right now. I'll let you guys know how this goes. It's not really a big deal for me, but I'd like to add a couple hundred rounds just for Clay's.

BPS had some bulk boxes of 12ga steel shot for 7.99 a box in the back. Its not the best deal in town but I figured I'd might as well grab a couple cases since I was there. Ive been telling myself for 2-3 months to buy some bird shot, I only use it for shooting clay birds, ya snooze you loose

I guess my thread and slow thinking are a little late..

Have a great New Years my friends. I wish you all the best.

I love that dog picture in your avatar. What a look! Happy New Year!

OP, thanks for the reminder,but, I believe I'm good. The first or second week of Jan, these posts on here should be entertaining, to say the least.
