There were other issues with the P22 that I had.

The biggest one was that It was not very accurate. I never could fire a decent group with it. 4-6" spreads were the norm at 30'. Not even plinking accuracy.

The other annoyance was the fact that I had to wear a baseball hat and button my shirt at the collar to avoid getting hot brass down my shirt and between my glasses and my face. The thing sprayed brass all over the place.

I read about using dry lube at Rimfire Central and tried some KG-7 moly powder. But it wasn't the cheapo zinc cast slide, it was the feed ramp. The pistol just did not like anything other than a RN bullet.

On the plus side, like others mentioned, it had a very comfortable, nice fitting grip frame. It was also compact and light. A great backpack carry gun, but do not expect to use it for anything other than a noise maker.

Don't forget the shooting vest to hold the shells at the trap range. It's better than a shell pouch IMO. I'd recommend a Browning vest as they have a thin after market gell shoulder pad that slips right in to the pad pocket. You can probably get both the vest and the pad for 60 USD if you shop around. I paid 33 for the vest at a local sporting goods store and 29 for the pad at Cebella's. Yes, I'm a pussy. Even the 20 gauge will beat me up after 4 or 5 rounds.

Dove season just around the corner, I want to go dove hunting via bike. I think the easiest way would be to open carry my shotgun across my back via sling. It is legal to open carry in my state.

Has anyone done this and is it secure and comfortable enough for extended periods?

So, what kind of shotgun? My model 12 Win pump fits into a small case once it's broken down, as would a double barrel or over and under. If you have a Rem 870 or 1100, it'll be bigger. Fancy guns, I don't know about.

Hmmm.....never tried this. But i can get my range bag, two ARs in cases, and two 308s in my sidecar.

I broke down a Remington 11-87, put it into a heavy plastic case and securely strapped it to the back seat and side cases on my Tiger. I could in theory open carry it here, but did not want any hassles. I did not want to damage the weapon or fall onto a piece of wood or steel in the event of a crash.

The shoot I rode to was an hour away from home on some busy roads. If the hunting grounds are just a few minutes away I might reconsider.

A little under three years ago, I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard after 28 years. Not wanting to
continue in my chosen profession (IT), I decided I needed a change. So, I packed up (most) of
my stuff, 2 cats, my fish and relocated to N.C., where I enrolled as a student at Montgomery
Community College in Troy to pursue an A.A.S in Gunsmithing.

This is what I've been working on for the last 2 years:

Remington 700 action, Shillen barrel chambered in 25-06, fiberglass MPI stock, Vortex scope.
Shot a 5/8 inch group at 100 yards the first time I took it to the range.


FN SPR (Special Police Rifle), Shillen barrel chambered in 300 Savage, Boyds stock, Vortex scope.



This one I worked on the longest.

1917 Danzig marked 98 Mauser action, Shillen barrel chambered in 6mm-284, hand-carved stock in Bastogne Walnut
with Zebra wood grip cap and nose piece, Vortex scope.




This was a project rifle that my Dad had started fooling with before he passed away. I finally had the time and tools
necessary to finish it.

1894 Stevens Favorite (early 1900's mfg). At some point in the past, the barrel had been rechambered because
almost 1 inch of it was missing. I had to turn new link pins, fit a new extractor and re-sleeve the barrel. The receiver
wasn't color case hardened originally, but since this wasn't a museum piece I thought it would look nice if I was able
to pull it off. This is actual color case hardening - not cyanide case coloring like you see nowadays.



The receiver close up:



This one is a Remington Spartan SPR 220F (Baikal - Russian mfg) that I use for Cowboy Action Shooting. Since I used
it for a couple of other projects, it got a little beat up so I refinished it. Color case hardened receiver, rust blued barrels.
Also did an action job on it, so now it no longer looks or feel like a recycled russian tank.



Receiver close up:



I've had this 10-22 for about 35 years. It wasn't in bad condition, but I thought it would be nice to update it a little. Did an action job on it, dropped in a few upgrade parts, and
tightened up the headspace. I didn't want to mess up the factory barrel, so I got my hands on a Bentz chambered E.L.Shaw barrel. You can't really tell in this picture, but I
refinished it with a Duracoat matte black finish. The stock was still in good shape, so I kept it but I did refinish it.



This was another "parts gun" project from my Dad. It's comprised of at least 3 different pistols.



One of our projects last fall semester was to build a custom 1911. We were handed a bag of parts, and 6 weeks later,
this is what I came up with.



All in all, a fairly productive 2 years. And for a dunce like me, scoring an Associate's degree was the icing on the cake.

So where are you off too now? Staying in the NC area, or taking your business elsewhere?
