Can you shoot a 10 gauge magnum rifled slug shotgun shell in a full choke 10 gauge magnum Marlin super goose gun?

It is generally not advisable to shoot slugs through a full choke, although people argue about this all the time. Personally I use IC choke for Foster slugs. Sabot slugs are designed to be used in rifled barrels only.

You can but it proves a little dangerous. But the biggest factor is that the lead slug squeezes through such a small hole it deforms and your accuracy goes to crap.

Can you shoot rifled slugs through a smooth bore barrel?

Shooting rifled slugs is the ONLY way to shoot thru a smoothbore for deer. If you shoot sabot slugs thru a smoothbore, it will not spin and therefore not be accurate. For accuracy, the slug must spin out of the barrel. Either shoot a rifled slug thru a smooth barrel, or shoot a saboted slug thru a rifled barrel.

What is one of the best paintball brands?

angel, smart parts, tippmann

no no and no, angel makes rather large poppet style markers, SP makes a few good enty/mid level markers but the high end stuff is really lacking in either performance or value, and tippmann makes sear tripped blow forwards, in fact that's all they make, all of their markers are the same exact design with different things on the outside.

planet eclipse makes some of the beat poppets out there along with Bob long, Dye makes the best spool valve markers by far, and WGP still makes some good closed bolt markers but they are kinda expensive for what they are now

How do you clean spring assisted knife?

Use canned air to remove dust and loose dirt. A cotton ball, cotton swab or soft cloth work well to remove dirt and debris. Wipe away oil from your hands after each use to limit the amount of dirt that sticks to the knife.

Be sure not to mess up the coil spring or tension bar, as then it wouldn't be spring assisted any more.

What age can you own a gun?

Where I live (Canada) you can get your unrestricted firearms license at the age of 18. Unrestricted classifies as most guns used to hunt (ex. shotguns, rifles). You can get a restricted license which allows you to purchase handguns. This is for Canada though so the laws where you live are probably different if you live in the US. Try researching your local laws on firearm possession and purchasing.

Can you shoot slugs through an accu-choke?

Without knowing the particular make up of the barrel or slug, I would say that the answer is NO as slugs are generally designed for a non choked barrel.

If you really want to know take your shotgun to a firearms specialist.

This guy is essentially right on the money. Take it to a dealer or gunsmith. You should never take the chance and fire a slug though a choke--it just isn't designed for it. Use smooth bore if you want to be safe.

They are bands that are found on banded ducks. Certain agencies band ducks with aluminum tags to collect migratory information. Once a duck is harvested, the band is called in to give the agency data on the bird (lifespan, migratory path).

Why do people hunt doves?

We use to hunt pigeons near old barns and along field edges. It was a fun way for me to see my uncles when they were home and we would clean the birds for my grandmother to cook. A pigeon and a dove are very similar in size and with a group of guys you could put together a nice meal. They are faster in the wild versus the ones that seem to sit right next to you in the suburbs.


Pigeons are a type of dove. Wild doves are hunted for their meat and for sport.
