Went out on a good note
« on: January 30, 2011, 03:15:51 PM »
Its been a long season with its ups and downs, being only my second season waterfowl hunting I still have a lot too learn but this year was pretty good. It was frusterating at times, but overall there were more birds around this year than last it seems. I went out on a solo hunt and did pretty good, hope you all did well too.

Nice limit!   It's been the worst year for me on the wet side with only a couple big duck limits.

Nice 270, that is a good way to close the season.

I also closed the season on a good note. Got my first Wood duck  :brew:

I have a left handed M2 as well thats how I could tell what it was. I like mine but am looking at maybe going to a right handed (because they dont make a LH) Benelli Vinci. Not 100% committed to it yet though

I am on the fence about going LH for an auto loader, I have a RH Breatta AL391, I feel like i am too used to loading that 4th shot on a flurry shoot, hold the gun up with the left hand while grabbing a shell and putting it in the chamber with my right..... It would be nice to not have casings fly in my face and have powder residue in my eyes. So I don't know what to think.

Ive shot right handed pumps quite a bit but not RH autoloaders. Do you get lots of powder blowback in your eyes? I would hate to switch to a RH autoloader and regret getting rid of my M2

I like my M2, it was getting pretty slow as the season went on because I never cleaned the recoil spring in the stock, but it is a very reliable gun, points well and is really light.

Mine seems to cycle slow sometimes too. So you clean the recoil spring in the buttstock to quicken it up?

I clean the recoil spring usually at the end of the season.  I totally break the entire gun down and clean it good.

It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!

Yeah I haven't done it yet, but I'm going to do it soon, take the stock off, and take the trigger assembly out, clean the bolt and the recoil spring tube.
