Successful test of dual metro barrels, and action photos from TCP.
Permalink  
 


The TCP had high hopes for this mornings crow shoot.  Unfortunately, we arrived to find another crew of crow hunters already in the orchard. The noise of their loud shotguns prevented us from achieving the high numbers we had hoped for, but we still had a great time none the less, and recovered 29 dead crows.

We had a new gadget on hand today.  A duck hunting buddy of mine, James, brought his Browning Cynergy and two metro barrels, and proceeded to whack crows with this dual metro device.  Very impressive by TCP standards. 

I also brought along my DSLR camera, and snapped some action photos of the boys crunching crows.  Enjoy.

Hi Matt,

Those are good close up photos, I see in photo number three where the left wing took part of the shot charge.

How come you guys didn't go to another location when you had other hunters in you're spot? To far between spots?

The main thing is that you had a good time and also got some nice photos.

My crow count is zero so far, it will be a while yet before I get after them.

Bob A.

Hey Bob,
Yes our next nearest orchard is about a 2 hour drive from this one, so we were stuck. Also, the orchard owners grandson was hunting with us, and we didn't want to bail out on him.

Yes, that left wing took severe damage. Those shots were all at 15 to 25 yards. At that distance, our subsonic re-loads are very deadly.

JD, the TCP always carry's way more firearms than are necessary for the task at hand. You never know what might emerge from the brush. This orchard is full of hogs, so I strapped on my 'hog leg'. Also, Lone Star Phil made that cartridge belt for me last week, so I wanted to show it off a little.

No Bob, thats merely a .357 Mag. I've been thinking about upgrading to the .44, just haven't 'pulled the trigger'.

Yes, Phil is quite the craftsman. His leather work never ceases to amaze.

The metro barrels in the double gun...are they barrel inserts? If so, what gauge?

Hi Pat,

They are simply a pair of Metro barrel extensions - www.metrogun.com.  They are only offered in 12 gauge.

And I agree, Texas Matt's photography is awesome.

Regards,

Gadget Bob

And it took James to bring home the concept of "one [fill in blank] good!: two [fill in blank] better!!"

Great pictures Matt!  And fine gun work, gentlemen! 

I have a working knowledge of that orchard and for the TCP to ground 29 crows in the middle with un-attenuated shotguns working loudly on the perimeter is a fine field trial demonstration for the effectiveness of the "quiet" technology when shooting crows in their grocery store.

Great photo's Matt...I'm going to have to force myself to put down the gun and snap some action shots some day!

Great leather work too...Phil is certainly a great craftsman.

I am officially addicted!

The similarities between the crow hunts and my style of duck hunting is something I had to experience to fully appreciate.

I consider myself fortunate to have the TCP showing me the ropes in the finer art of crow killin'. Lots of years of experience and proficiency taking me under their wings.

Although no money was offered to Texas Matt to replace the Remington with a camera, he has been highly encouraged to duplicate his efforts on ducks as well. biggrin

Exceptional work, Matt.

James
