    So I decided to bid on a used pair of Briley Ultralight Companion tubes in 28-gauge for my Citori. Yup - I won them and they arrived yesterday!!! They weigh next to nothing and go in beautifully. $390...

    Oops!! The chokes they came with are Skeet and Skeet! Can't shoot Chinese, and won't shoot Sporting Clays, with Skeet chokes! On the phone to Briley, immediately. Ordered 3-chokes: IC, Mod, Full!! $90....

    Oops!! I don't have a 28-gauge loading machine. I'm sure The Old Man will give me his Mec 600 Jr., but let's see what's available on Ebay. Hmmmm - fast, progressive Hornady 366 (just like my 12-ga machine) in 28-gauge!!! Comes setup in 28-ga with a full set of 12-ga dies and 22-bushings to boot!!!! Gotta have it!! $299...

    :what:

    <SIGH>


    Best - Ed


    PS: Stop laughing, Dave!!

    Laugh? Not me....

    I can't make it this Friday, Ed, $%^&* work. Maybe next week we'll see how she shoots.

    I know shotguns have no gender but anything a man spends that much money on has to be female....

    All I gotta say is the number of pages of my "Blame List" is giving some fat guy in a red suit a run for his money against his "Wish List".
