    Skeet is preferred but improved cylinder will work. Some debate as to whether 1 oz of 6's or 7's is better.

    Mr. Ellis was gracious, helpful and always made newcomers feel welcome. Most of us in the South saw him and Jimbo often. A Southern gentleman in every sense of the word. He will be missed.

    The very best gunners train & run dogs. Because they throw, shoot & buy their own during the week they understand the expense of a no bird & the complexities it causes the working & honor dog. ...

    Bingo! When I have seen it at a test it is followed by poor line manners, lack of teamwork and honoring on lead.
