I never particularly liked KFC anyway, could care less what his "Secret" spices are. We used to have a lot better Chicken lace here than KFC but for some reason they lost out & KFC stayed, but wasn't because of my patronizing them. Name was Lee's & he was a nephew of the Colonel, used a different recipe than his uncle which was much tastier, at least to me.

Keith, I'm not talking about the cost of raising the bird, I'm talking about the cost of hunting them. LOL

I surely do like my 16 gauge. I shot several quail with mine over the last few days. Mine has 28” barrels and weighs 5 lb 13 oz. It’s a pleasure to carry in the field and is user friendly, all day long. I shoot RST 1 oz loads in the gun and they are perfect for quail, as is the gun. I’ve shot all the other gauges too, but the 16 is my favorite. Maybe they will become even more obsolete and hence, cheaper.....but, I doubt it.

By the way, everyone knows that Kentucky Fried Chicken is healthier than wild game that has been killed with deadly poisonous lead shot. And this forum is long overdue for another thread on hinge pin grease, oil, or both... including their effects upon the environment.


I'm lucky because I have Wegman's that sells Jojoba oil plus vaseline and Cabela's with Bismuth shells next to it. Jojoba is fine gun oil and when mixed with vaseline will make nice pin grease. Jojoba and vaseline are skin friendly and Bismuth subalicylate is used in sick stomach panacea called Pepto Bismol. You know the nice looking pink stuff that tastes like "shit".

Mike, It’s an English SLE gun made in about 1920, 2 1/2” chambers. I treat it gingerly with low pressure RST loads. It’s pretty sweet and shoots great. I think the barrels are properly regulated, which I know was recently discussed in another thread here. The gun shoots a tad (2-3”) high at 25 yards which is what I like.

Nice gun, is it true that the barrels have quail magnets on the muzzle end to ensure a great shot??

Cost of hunting a bird ? Recently , we figured off hand about $3000 per pound. Some hunts are better.

That sounds in the zone. Although it's the one hard truth I try to stay away from. laugh

Hell Daryl! I got the cost down to $2990 yesterday. I shot the fourth bird of the year in this drought.
