I would doubt it since the tubes on the GL are really thin. BTW despite all the negative comments, I like mine.

Have one retired friend who spends all of his time in one of three activities.

(1) Watching grandchildren in their competitive sports (they're all in college on sports scholarships).

(2) Fishing either in the Gulf or in fresh water lakes and streams. He once left home without a plan or reservation and only returned three months later having fished everyday along streams in the Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho Rockies. Sometimes moving only 300 feet in a single day.

(3) Hunting birds. He especially likes pheasants anywhere from Kansas to North Dakota. He travels thousands of miles many times per year to bird hunt. But he can shoot birds in his backyard too. He won't make a hotel reservation for a night because that is a long term commitment. (In work life, his schedule was nailed down in fifteen minute increments for months in advance.)

He has time for nothing else.

Though he has a large collection of very nice double guns a lifetime in the making, he uses the Ruger Gold Label more than the rest combined. His has the straight English stock and splinter forend (as does mine).

I bought him a pallet of Winchester factory pheasant loads for his Gold Label. Can't remember whether they were #4 or #6, but they were what he liked.

I like my Ruger Gold Label too. Just don't hit as well with it as I do my Browning Citoris. Practice may help.

Either he owns his own preserve or you have VERY liberal bag limits! There's 24,000 shells on a pallet!

You're also an exceptionally generous friend... that's a $5000+ present!

He didn't shoot the whole pallet in a single year, but he is actively working on it over time. As I said, he likes to shoot. Think he is spending 100+ days per year shooting birds. Won't let it get out of balance with fishing though.

He had been a friend for 20+ years and when he retired I thought it would be a nice gift. Twice before bought him nice rifles for presents.

Besides, when I visit the Gulf he knows the back-in-the-woods places with pork barbecue or whole-fried catfish.


One year bought five different friends complete Dillon Precision progressive press outfits with all the trimmings for Christmas. Think they enjoyed them.

Like some others, I have been fortunate in life to find something I am good at, to make a good income doing it, have saved and invested well, and like to share with my friends.

Being my friend isn't easy.

Have to eat pork barbecue, whole fried catfish, fried okra, real apple pie...

Have to like shooting innocent prairie dogs.

Have to like 44s.

Sheesh, you'd think we grew up in the same house with the same mom cooking.
There are no innocent prairie dogs.
I have a S&W .44 Special. That close enough?

Since I am always accused of shooting innocent animals, I go ahead and plead guilty to it. Saves time.

Have several S&W 44 Specials. They're a joy.

S&W 44 Mags are fun too.
