And it is not a stupid question.
Totally agree, no simple answers. DTs are ideal…if you never wear gloves. DTs require more tactile feedback than SSTs but gloves inhibit that response, especially ...

Many excellent strap vests referenced above in posts, but unfortunately they are not legal here in WA for upland game as they don’t meet hunter orange requirements. Only the full upper body vests wil ...

Have had decent success with ITX on phez and ducks but in general, nothing comes remotely close to lead which we used to great effect back in the day. Having said that, I must admit that the original ...

Elastic loops stretch loose, shells work their way out.

Vest pockets fall open and lose contents when I le ...
