    So what is everyone's opinions on what shot size and choke to use for general duck season?

    ive used anything from #4 to #2 shot in black cloud ammunition and have had very good success. as for chokes I change them out according to cover, setup, and decoys to try to predict what range birds will be flying in to. However, it would not be unwise to maintain the ability to reach out to a longer distance. Some birds might take a few more pellets than they needed but in my opinion there is not a huge difference between dead and more dead

          For all-around use, I like #4 Hevi-Shot in a modified choke.

            I leave the IC in year round, usually throwing #4 Xperts. When they have the landing gears down in the dekes they aren't tough to kill.

              Improved Modified choke with 3" #4 shot Federal Black Cloud. Seems to drop'em pretty well.

                  Like most everyone else, I buy a scope to feel a need. Only a few times have I taken advantage of a sale.

                  Do you buy a scope when it is on deep discount, then look for the perfect rifle to put it on ? Or, you have the rifle and it needs glass, justkeep looking...

                  Bubba, I've been curious too. This is our first and so far I like it during dry fire. We're going to see how it is at the range in a few days....

                  On 7/19, Milldawg mentioned he'd ordered a laser sight for his wife's Ruger LCP 380 and they were on sale at MidwayUSA. Well, that inspired me to order...

                  Good question. The old style Ruger LC9 has a very long trigger pull that's similar to that of a double action only revolver. I think it would be unlikely...
