    I wish I did...but its burned in the memory banks just waiting for a rousing, drunken game of dominos for a wake-up call. He was pretty excited going out after a crippled Speck. He asked me to hand him his gun as the bird was making a break for it. So I handed the shotgun to him, he waded a few yards and went down. Came up spitting and sputtering about who was the #$$%$# that decided to put out a jerk string. Got the bird and came back to the blind and handed me bird, then said; "This isn't my gun"...and handed me my soaked shotgun. We have identical SBE2's. It gave me an excuse to deep clean the shotgun when I got home.

    This is what I use.

    A couple of things:

    1. God awful heavy. I mean really heavy. I don't like that about it but it is what it is.
    2. It throws up so much water it throws it onto itself which gets it wet and makes it shine. Not a huge deal as splashing birds get wet anyway but may be an issue for really skittish birds. I think it would be better flocked so you don't get quite the glare on it.

    The battery lasts a long time though and it has good water action.

    Thanks, mainly on the snow goose forum and sometimes on the shooting page these days.

    Ha, yea they are and that hammer is sorta weird. Each hunt and its in my ATV bucket and its a weird shape too. I ordered a bag from them for it, but now, its in a big take out bag.

    As far as the splashing, change the feet so only one foot is in the water, but I did wonder about having it flocked.

    When I saw that hammer I was like holy cow! That keeps it stable in really rough water conditions I guess but chances are I wouldn't be using that thing if the water is that rough to begin with.
