    I read this hours ago, I'm still chuckling. I hope for you that this is one of those funny stories, in retrospect, as it all turned out good. At first I didn't get the part where the puppy saved...

    According to their website, the ZW II and FTer use "standard" tubing.

    The HTer and Mini T use "heavy" tubing.

    What primers are you using? It sounds like the primers are expanding too much. Have you tried Winchester?

    I had that problem with Rio primers, which also got stuck in my pistol.

    It is not...

    I am of the same mind. I have two IIs, the distance is usually more than I need. I think the tubing is the same and pouch is the same as the other Wingers they sell, or maybe the company has...

    Bon, I got my Ruff Tuff covers installed this morning. They did a nice job---everything as expected and they look great. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Here's hoping the truck last awhile longer!

    You can use a plastic dog/cat crate to take them home.

    If you keep them awhile, you will want something fancier to keep them them clean. Ducks, for example, play in the water, then they spill...

    I just noticed the pics of you, your dog and infant in the other thread.

    Wayne, the tape shows up so well in your video I assumed it was wider than 1 3/16". I haven't been able to find it in the stores around here (in white) but see there are places to...

    If he likes to retrieve, I would start by teaching him to sit the way I learned through the Hillman puppy dvd. He sits, you walk away and throw a bumper, then you release dog for the retrieve. If...

    If you have snow and don't think the white bumpers will show up in the air, try black ones. Or black and white. You want the bumper to contrast the background while it is in the air.

    I thought she looked quite pleased with herself when she came back with the bumper. She thought she done good. It is always pleasing to see a dog happy with it's job.
