funny repair

Postby vital_kill » Mon Sep 15, 2008 1:02 am

My friend just bought a new Browning Gold in MODB 12 gauge 3 1/2". He took it out today and load it up with 3 shells and fired away. After the last shell was fired, the gun "jammed," as of what he told me. Couldn't get the bolt to close. Swung by my place as I have numerous experiences with Golds, and I took a look at it. After listening to his story, all I did was press the bolt release button and he was good to go. HAHAHA :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: NOTE: this is his first automatic ever, the guy was a pump freak. Gunsmiths could of charged him an arm and a leg for that. :wink:

At least he didn't break the forearm trying to pump it. I almost did that years ago when I bought my first auto...pulled up, shot the first dove and almost broke the thing trying to shuck another round. It finally donned on me what I was shooting and commenced to dropping a double from the next drove that came in.

Yep me too, but just the opposite. I just got my first auto and I didn't have a problem trying to pump it or what not. Then I shot a few times with my dad Super Nova and I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't load another (while a clay pidgeon is flying). I forgot to pump! :rofl: I thought it was pretty funny.

I switch back and forth from time to time. I get screwed up almost every time. It always takes me a shot, followed by momentary confusion, to get it all figured out and in the right mindset.

Growing up on an 1100, I still prefer autos. I still occasionally forget to pump my BPS 10ga, but that's the only pump I've taken out to the field for some time.

Really screw myself up when shooting a pump with safety on the front of the trigger housing. Twice the chance of messing up, as I'm also used to the safety in back or a suicide safety a la A5/M11.

However, if I could find the right Model 12, I'd be willing to live with that.

:lol3: :lol3: I was an electrician for a number of years. Can't tell ya how many times I was called to take care of a "dead" or "failed circuit." Get there and it was a tripped GFCI. Push the little button in and you're good to go! Same thing. Someone could have spent 4 hours crawling attics and subfloors and charged them $600! :lol3: I usually told them to "not worry about a charge, but next time you call for this....." :lol3:

A conditioned response that becomes a reflex, like me searching for the clutch in my wife's automatic Subaru LOL. She only lets me drive it on special occasions!!!!!!

Always been able to go from pump,auto,o/u, double trigger S/S's, even single barrel hammer guns with no problems due to the guns I grew up with. But I could never get used to the safety on a model 12. I actually got rid of a sweet model 42 for that very reason.
Life is to short to hunt with a ugly gun.

I've been accustomed to adjusting to the action of the gun I was shooting with very few problems as I use pumps and autos quite frequently depending upon my mood and the quarry. But I always seem to forget the double trigger on my .410 SxS bird gun on the first covey rise...after the first one I'm good to go.
