Tim that's so mean and I am still wondering at myself for LMFAO while reading what-cha done.

That's ok Ive been short N'd before. Give us a shout ahead of time so we can make sure we are home. That is a nice trek. I haven't been over the ferry but have worked on both sides of the lake!

My bad! The shotgun is a 20 gauge. The salesman spoke about several different models. He could have been speaking Greek and I would have understood just about as much. Hopefully it won’t knock me on my butt.

20 gauge is mild. Good for beginners

20ga won't and it should do the job without to much preamble, however I would think you would want double ought buckshot for your load of choice, you don't want them to get back up. Barb you're just following tradition, the same thing had to be done back in the 1800's ....

Yup!
I remember those days, Jeff.
How’s your aim since 1860? And what was our tradition in the “back when”? I fergit

Barb,
Wear a jacket or easy on shirt, larger one if you have it. Take a bath towel and fold it so it will fit in the shirt on the front of your shoulder. This is where the butt of the rifle (shotgun) is going to go. When you are ready to shoot, put the rifle against the towel and pull it tight against the towel. You don't want a loose rifle butt slapping you in the chin.

Squeeze the trigger with the TIP of your finger. Do not put the finger all the way through to the meaty part, just the tip. Aim, squeeze - boom.

Even with the towel there you may get a bruise and that is why previously it was stated to only take a couple practice shots until you get used to it.

When done practicing - for good - it will only take a few times once in a while to stay familiar.

Call me for sight alignment and sight picture, or just plain ol' battle sights.

Rain Driving

Made it to Effingham IL today. Drove in the rain most of the way, really heavy at times. Slow speed and had hazard flashers on part of the way. Drove in some rain yesterday too but not as heavy. Was trying to remember the last time we drove the MH in the rain, must have been last summer sometime...
Camp Lakewood is a really nice smaller older park, close enough to town to run in but far enough away the only traffic noise is a faint siren now and then.

Does the shotgun have a recoil pad on the butt of the stock? If not, you can easily add one. They're made of rubber and available anywhere shotguns are sold. I'd guess Walmart even carries them.
Now let's see, which gal of the old west carried a shotgun.....Calamity Jane, Annie Oakley?
Barb needs an old west style nickname from this....."Buckshot Barb" ??

We had a really cool uncle that really liked guns and practice the 'quick draw' all the time. His main problem was he was a lot quicker on the trigger than the draw. His nickname was "No Toes Tony" Barb can use this if so inclined.
