Deja vu. I had a similar experience last year. After a bout with cancer and while recovering from surgery afterwards, I'm thinking I need a new gun. At the same time my wife asks me what is she going to do with a bunch of guns when I do finally kick the bucket. In the meantime I've been going all around trying out new guns without finding anything that really rung my bell. So, I started thinking. I don't shoot nearly as much as I used to. And switching guns all the time had probably contributed to not shooting as well when I do shoot, either. So I decided to sell off a bunch of guns, and buy an 1100 Magnum and convert my '63 back to original after nearly 30 years of hard servitude, and buy an 1100 in 28 gauge, and try one more time to replace that dear departed Wingmaster Magnum I never should have sold in the first place.
I had fun shopping and when I got thru I was many thousands of dollars to the good as well. I was going to the range with my step son teaching him before last dove season, and one day he says "How come you hardly ever miss?" Well, his statement wasn't quite accurate, but my hit percentage had improved dramatically. And when the season opened the doves fell almost like I was 30 years younger and ****** (censored) pounds lighter. And the real thrill came when we went to Manitoba waterfowl hunting, with an old friend I used to hunt a lot with, but had not seen in 12 years, and I was really cooking. He commented that it looked like I had regained some of my old form.
I might have thought I was better equipped with several thousand dollars of gun on my arm, but I may as well face it, I shoot a heck of a lot better with a Remington repeater. Maybe I can remember that the rest of the way.
