I totally agree on the toilet paper, it was my "entry drug" to COSTCO membership. But I would add single malt scotch to the list. MAJ


Ha Ha! Thanx Mary Ann. You are prescient! Would you believe my Denver friends sent me a fruitcake from the Collins Street Bakery in Corsicana? It's almost gone. I fork-out bites throughout the day as I pass the fridge. I'll be sad when it's gone . . . . sometime mid-day tomorrow :(

485 more rounds of practice and 320 in a couple of local NSCA shoots in December - NSC and Capital City. Boy it felt cold on the 29th in Austin. Brrrr. The feels-like temp in Austin last Saturday was around 30-32 deg F, with the 10-15 MPH steady wind. It used to be I only resorted to long johns when the temp hit the 20's and below.

On a related note, I just got back from walking my two Goldens. 47 deg F and breezy, and I feel chilled. In one year in Texas, I feel like I've shed my Michigan cold resistance for good.

Happy New Year to all Guerini/Fabarm shooters on this forum. I had a pretty humbling year this year, but I hope I have turned a corner and will depart Crappy Shootingville for good in 2019. God bless you all and see you soon.

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 20970.

Oh Andy this made me laugh. When I moved to Phoenix in 1987 I used to sneer at the bundled up locals in the winter. By the time I left in 1997, I was one of them. And in your defense, shooting on the ridge line at Capital City in the winter is not for the faint hearted. Mary Ann

I've been slacking off my Guerini Summit Ltd. posts lately. 560 more rounds of practice and 535 in a four local NSCA shoots so far this year - Copperhead Creek, Capital City, and two at NSC. The Copperhead shoot wasn't really a shoot, it was a laughable attempt to hit clays buffeted about by 30-40 MPH winds.

Oh well, the gun continues to perform, and maybe I am learning, finally, to focus intently on the bird. Why is that so hard?

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 22065.

Thanx for the kind words mickd. Beretta makes some incredible clay target guns, to be sure. I believe my Summit Ltd is similar in price to the 692, but about half a DT11. When I purchased it, I knew I was getting Guerini’s outstanding service, and was not as confident that a Beretta would garner similar attention and turnaround time that CG had displayed time and again. I’ll keep posting as long as I keep shooting it. I appreciate the feedback.

345 more practice rounds. No local tourneys lately, and none for me until the Texas State shoot next week. I'm off tomorrow to Denver to visit my daughter and some dear friends.

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 23395.

Well, my Texas State shoot experience wasn't very pleasant. I suddenly manifested issues keeping my cheek firmly planted on the stock (shooting high every time). And when using my 20G Briley Side-Kick 2.0 tubes, I chose cheap Rio shells and one got so stuck, I had to use a fellow squad mate's gun to complete the 100 bird event and FITASC.

The good news was that my CG was fine thru it all, and I discovered my transient light cheek issue, which I can reflect back on past events and see when it (Me!) raised it's head in key moments. Pain (embarrassment) is a hard but effective taskmaster.

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 24150.

Thursdays with the guys and several local tourney's - 565 more rounds. Weather's getting hot here in San Antonio. Time for the wide-brimmed hat and "stay cool" methods. Looking forward to a great summer with my Guerini.

One quick question for you sub-gage tube shooters: One of my Thursday shooting buddies has a set of 28 gage tubes in his Beretta. He let me shoot a few rounds thru it and it was a joy to experience. Zero recoil and plenty of clay breaking power. I have 20 gage Sidekicks 2.0, but wonder if my inertia triggers would reset with a 28 gage 3/4 oz. load. It didn't feel like there was enough ooomph to do so. My buddy said he had to have mechanical triggers installed to allow 28 gage shooting in his Beretta.

One more quick question: Could the Guerini guys do this on site during the Nationals shoot so I wouldn't have to send the gun in to them?

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 24715.

Got some more practice in, and a local NSC shoot yesterday - 440 more rounds. I just passed the 25k round mark this week as well. Way to go Guerini Summit Limited!

I made arrangements to see Cole Gunsmithing at their new local store at the National Shooting Complex when Rich Cole will be in town for the Texas State 4H Championships in July. I'm going to have the inertia trigger changed to a mechanical trigger. The next step will be 3/4 oz. reloads to practice with (and save $ on shot). Then a purchase of 28G Briley Sidekicks for future fun and sub-gage competions. Finally, I have a shooting buddy willing to sell me a Mec 9000 28G loader for $100.

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 25155.

More practice and 3 or 4 local NSC shoots - 910 more rounds.

Cole Gunsmithing (new local store at the National Shooting Complex) installed the "skeet" trigger this past week. Cole Gunsmithing, an authorized Caesar Guerini service provider, could not convert the gun to a true "mechanical" trigger without nullifying the warranty. They did make it a really sensitive inertia trigger. In fact, with the barrel selector on the lower barrel position and an empty gun, the trigger acts like a mechanical. With the upper barrel selected, it isn't quite as sensitive, but enough so. But the proof of the trigger's efficacy was apparent today, when I shot about seventy five 28 gauge rounds without any issues (except it's a bit harder to hit sporting clays targets - smaller margin of error). Now, my 7/8 ounce 12 gauge loads seem huge in comparison.

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 26065.

More practice and 3 more local NSC shoots - 585 more rounds.

It sure is hot out here lately! I'm starting to see that any one day of shooting that exceeds 150 rounds may be hazardous to my score . . . and my health.

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 26650.

Thanks for keeping the CG info coming. I was looking at Summits when a deal on a Magnus came my way. I'm still about 25k behind you in the round count but I'm trying. :D

More practice and 3 local NSC shoots - 1150 more rounds.

I've forgotten how to shoot. In basketball, the sport of my youth, it is said that good shooters in a slump keep shooting. Eventually, they return to form. I hope that's true for sporting clays. I'm too old for basketball.

Total shot count for the Summit Limited = 27800.

Thanx Stuck. Sorry for the delay in responding. Keep shooting, and if you are so inclined, document the results for us all.
