Wait...people use something besides a 22LR pistol, rocks, or sticks to dispatch fool hens???

I've used a 1911 in 45 ACP, it just stood while shooting at it 6 times. Just saying .22 work better, I now carry a 1911 with a .22 conversion.

Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.

First grouse! Finally decided to start carrying the .22 with me when I'm out and about.

Tried a few different file types, all under file size limits but none would post... :dunno:

From the start of october till now. I have only seen 1 grouse. Although I have not been targeting them I have gone through plenty of grousy areas while going for deer and elk. Numbers definetely seem a bit low in a lot of places. If targeting I am sure I can get on some birds. Just hasn't been the priority. But congrats to those finding the success.

But do love my 22 revolver when targeting grouse.
Maturity is when you have the power to destroy someone who did you wrong but instead you breathe, walk away, and let life take care of them.

Nice Grouse setup there pbg ... is that a .410 Thompson-Center Contender?
Understand that if it has 10 inch barrel (using 3" shotshell) can now use it for Turkey too ...

Shockingly I haven't seen a single grouse here in Oregon this year.  Which is so odd.  Even in my favorite grouse spots.

Too bad as I bought a CP33 and PMR30 this year to add to the rimfire arsenal.  Can only use rimfire or shotguns on grouse here.   

Some nice pistol photos in this thread.
