Re: Painting bead red

I've got the tru glow sights on my turkey gun and love them, a turkey you aim carefully. Tried same sights on my field gun and absolutely hated them, when I pulled the gun up the front sight was all my eyes seemed to pick up on!

Re: Words of Wisdom

Not sure this counts but, owners should practice with their guns as much as the dogs practice finding birds. Nothing worse than having your dog give you that , why am I even finding these birds for you, look! Remember dead birds make owner and dog happy!

House your dog inside or outside??

I have always had EP's and have always housed them outside in dog runs with plenty of room. Now thinking when I get my new dog someday I will have him in my home. What are the pro's and con's of this, I'm sure some of you have done it both ways.
