    -Central American Dove Hunting.I want to be so covered up with doves I melt the barrel off the sucker and have to use another gun!! :D

    -Praire Dog shoot, including "walking thru town" and using handguns
    -Been Pheasant, Woodcock, Chukar...other species of Bird Hunting
    -Been Elk, Antelope, Hawg and some other hunting.
    -Shoot Bowling pins

    I so badly wish we had quail like we did when I was a kid. I have been on some great quail hunts. I will someday attend a Fine Traditional Quail hunt. I mean with the mule drawn wagons, fine dogs, 28 ga SxS's and the Tradition so deep in the air - you can taste it.

    I've heard stories ,seen pictures of the driven Bird hunts and such in Spain. I wanna so bad.

    -Never shot at an indoor range, or any formal range for that matter - other than when I was in the service many years ago.
    -Never missed a deer season since I was old enough to get a hunting license - other than when I was in the service many years ago.
    -Never understood why many hunters, believe their pet .30 caliber cartridge (in Dad's case it's a .308 Win.) is the ultimate big game slayer but .30-30s aren't powerful enough for anything bigger than coyotes and 30-06s kick too hard and destroy too much meat.

    Well, I've never really enjoyed shooting full-power slugs out of my 870, although that doesn't stop me from doing so.

    Yeah there's another one. My 870 is capable of shooting 3" shells and slugs (with its 18" cylinder barrel) yet i've never shot either.

    I do OWN slugs and 3" magnums but...i'm afraid :p

    Most people have never fired an automatic shotgun,stevekl. I have shot quite a few semi-auto ones, though, and a DAO revolving one.:evil:

    Can't think of too many things I haven't done; mostly I haven't shot much official competition, except ATA and a few Garand matches, plus some service matches. Haven't fired anything over .458 Winchester or 454 Casull yet. (Well, .50 BMG, but out of an M2, and .50AE, but I consider it much tamer than the Casull.) I can't comment about whether I've shot myself or not....:uhoh:

    I've never worn spandex at a SASS event. I ALWAYS wear pants under my chaps, during firearm events. I like to play fair. It's the cowboy way.:)
