    Whats wrong with a single shot shotgun?

    Whats wrong with a single shot 22 rifle? Do you own any?

    Hey buddy, I got ya. I have over a dozen single shot single barrel rifles in caliber .17 Ackley to .50/70GVMT and .22 Rim fire. Four single shot rim fire .pistols. Twenty -seven single or double barrel shotguns. But that is just me and you know I make them from 100 plus year old junk parts for the fun of it.
    I agree with you about the versatility of the shotgun. If I only had one gun it would be a model 12 Winchester 12ga. pump gun. That gun shoots every time I pull the trigger with a little extra on the riot trigger.

    I'm expecting to have a much fun with the 22 Pinkster as I do with my compact 22, which is my favorite gun.

    That is a nice clear pic. What camera are you using? My pics have been lousy. It used to do well. I have a FUJIFILM FinePix S700.

    My problems seemed to start after changing to LED lights. I took my deer pic outside. It came out good.

    Some cameras hold the shutter open less time than others. Your camera is going between the frequency of the led cycle. You could change that by going into manual settings and extending the ISO up one or two notches.

    I believe you will be a bit surprised at the 100-125 distances. The drop between the two is noticeable. But out to 100 the Sportco target master I bought a few years ago is still the most boring rifle I ever owned. I have never tried it out to 125 plus. My eyes aren't good enough any more I have to use glass past past 100yds.

    It will be fun. I redid my Marlin 60 back to 100 yards after i didn't get to do the 200 yard shoot. Im going to take different weights and velocity ammo with too.
