      I was over there a couple of years ago and it is really nice. Lots of camping spots that I'm sure fill up when an event is going on.

      .... nice looking place but it sure is way, way over my head .... that might be a good place for me to go and watch Jeff shoot ....

          during the last few days I've received some choke tubes from Cabala's and BassPro .... I guess the next step is to pattern them to see which seems to work best with our 11-87 .... in thinking about doing so, at what range would it be best to place the targets

            What size connecting rod do you use on that?

            I use my 18" defender shotgun? Why? Because it's what I own. Best option I have!

              question : choke tubes for a 1990 12ga Ruger Red Label Shotgun are marked by notches cut into the end of the choke tube .... does anyone know what choke restrictions correspond to three notches and four notches

                another question : with an over and under 12ga, are there circumstances in which it is best to have the same choke tube in each barrel .... example, a skeet choke tube in each barrel when shooting skeet/sporting clays and such

                  chokes

                  Jim, usually 1 notch represents full choke, 2 is imp modified, 3 modified, 4 improved, 5 skeet. Typicaly when shooting sporting clays you will shoot your bottom barrel first with a more open choke on the closer target, and your second shot with a tighter choke because the second target is almost always farther away. If both targets are in close you can use the same choke in both barrels. I am not a choke changer, if the coarse is like most then you can get by just fine with a improved cylinder in the bottom barrel and a modified in the top.....just shoot them and have fun!..Scott

                  PS, if you plan to go to the St Louis area during your trip, send me a PM and I will set you up to shoot with my daughter , she shoots out at Gateway gun club in St Charles and works at Bass Pro.

                    we will be in St Louis twice this summer for a week each visit .... offer appreciated but I'm sure I'm not anywhere near her shooting class .... thanks for the info .... I've just learned that Ruger is no longer manufacturing their Red Label over and under .... the choke in the top barrel has 3 marks and the bottom has 4 .... no clue which barrel shoots first .... I thought I'd pick up the rest of the available chokes while the supply is still plentiful .... have been trying t decide if we need two or each or not

                      chokes

                      Jim , you dont need to buy Ruger factory chokes, you can get them from Briley in Texas. These are better chokes and dont require a choke wrench to install, they are about 35 dollars ea. My daughter enjoys helping people learn to shoot , and would have no problem giving you some tips.Scott

                        Briley is the site where I've been looking at them .... in this link the short tubes that our '90 model uses can be seen in the last two tubes .... one is labeled as "Ruger Flush Black Oxide" and the other as "Ruger Flush Black" .... the black oxide tubes are $5 each more expensive .... are they worth it

                          Jim the Flush black chokes fit flush to the end of your guns barrel, the other one has a nurled extension about 3/4 of an inch long , which makes them easier to get in and out of the gun. I prefer the nurled chokes , but if you arent going to change them a lot it doesn't really matter, they will both pattern , al though Brileys are more true to the constriction. Scott

                            I must not be looking at the same ones .... the black flush and the flush (last two in the link) look to me to be the same length .... the difference appears to be the black oxide finish .... would that finish be worth $5 .... and no, I don't think I'll be changing them often, the ones it it have been there since 1990
