They've been doing it for so many years in Brookswood, they have the system down pat.
Langley is a long way from Squampton. What were you doing in my part of the country?

What kind of shot do you use for clay pidgeons? I assume something like bird shot?

Thanks for the slugs!


I brought the target back home so they could wrap it for my birthday. That's the problem with gun stuff, you can't really buy someone ammo or accessories without a valid PAL. So we're stuck buying our own gun related gifts!

I work in Coquitlam, and a former colleague and current client wanted to take me out and try trap - so I obliged them. Sure glad I did, it was a lot of fun

28g 7 1/2 shot 2 3/4 rounds - they let rookies use 8 shot, but I figure if I can't hit it with 7.5, then 8 won't help much

I like shooting the shotgun, so I have been shouldering it a lot. Speaking of which, I'd like to refinish it. After 40 years it needs some TLC. Do you guys sell the Tru-Oil and Bluing refurbishing sets?

Cool to hear Z. I have to try skeet shooting one of these days.
As for the tru oil, it works well. But nothing beats a good hand sanding and stain. Or tacticool hardware.

Then how come Lee Valley just picked it up? Tru-OilŪ - Lee Valley Tools

Anyways, I want to do this myself, so sending it out is not going to happen. The gun is stripped, sanded, stained, and I removed all the old bluing already. Regular vinegar does wonders. What would happen if I just polished the barrel? Going to go to CGN and read about that option. I also wouldn't mind simply polishing the aluminium receiver, not sure how that would work out and how well it would look over time.

Here is a teaser of work in progress - lots more work to go.

So far, so good. Been chipping away at this slowly but surely. Painted the receiver, ejector, screws, and mag tube the other day.



Today I blued the barrel - that was a fun process and it turned out great. I just used Outers bluing from CT and took my time, did several coats and I'm quite satisfied with how well it turned out. No pics yet, I'm letting it cure for a few days.

Also managed to polish the trigger assembly, wax the buttstock, and then I sanded down the stock and pump. The natural wood is very light so I wasn't sure if I should stain it before adding Tru-oil.



So I wanted to see if the Tru-oil would darken it up, and added a first coat and let it dry. It didn't darken much at all.



So when that was dry enough to sand, I added a thin layer of black stain and it is now going the direction I envisioned.



I'm going to sand out the grooves in the black stain, sand it again and I'll probably need to do a second or third coat of black before I can then start back with the Tru-oil. Overall, it's been a great project to do during this nice little heat wave - I hang in my gazebo and stay outta the sun. It's been fun learning how to do all these processes. I'm probably going to need to watch a video to show me how to put it all back together, cuz as time goes by so does my memory.

Pretty good deal with 2 left.

I bought 2 to get free shipping. Note that I bought this like late June and it took forever to restock.

FYI for those that work daytime during the week. Pcdhfc has changed their times to summer hours now. They open until 9pm Tuesdays and Thursdays now. Anytime during the evenings are probably the beat times to go. There's almost always a few open lanes whenever I go on those days.

These worth it at 50 bucks?

Well, after many new 'firsts' when trying to finish this gun, I finally have it all back together. I ended up with about 8 coats of Tru-oil on the pump and about 10 on the stock. The last few coats on the stock it started to get a lot of crystals in it (the oil will do this), and I didn't want to keep sanding - so I hit it with my bench polisher and that was a mistake - took off layers and I needed to reoil some more.

Anyways, I did figure a way to polish it eventually with my 7" orbital on low, though I did take of some staining near the buttstock. Anyways, I like how it turned out but next time I will try a different stain and oil process. Also, I will polish the barrel better before bluing - and perhaps do a few more coats. Perhaps tomorrow I can get it out and pump a few rounds down the barrel.

Interesting...

Gun owners may face less red tape, new responsibilities under proposed law - Politics - CBC News

I just read this article - I was more shocked that politicians were actually listening to their constituents and doing their jobs proper.

Somewhat random question here...

Does anyone know where I can get some .50 cal ammo cans for cheap?

Surplus stores are killing it with $30 each.
