I am reduced to using my other 00-frame VHE 28 gauge fair weather grouse and woodcock gun for the rest of the season. The one I would have preferred to use this season very quickly became my "beautiful sunny morning hidden-underground-yellow-jacket-nest-swarming/stinging-bastards" gun and it is now off for expert repairs for a few months.

Unfortunately I fear there is more to this story?

I reckon so Reggie. On top of that I still do not see them. Are they in this thread and I am blind ? Maybe I shouldn't see them, does not sound good.

In a frenzied attempt to remove myself from the proximity of the highly audible drone of the angry swarming yellow-jackets I took a nasty tumble and an instant before I would have fallen on my little VHE Skeet I quickly tossed it onto what appeared to be a cushioning section of fallen leaves and ferns...

The gentleman who will be repairing the break has assured me it will be an invisible repair and it will be stronger than before the mishap.

Oh geez that sucks bad. My apologies for rekindling that topic. Best of luck with the repairs.

Dean
Will you stop posting the nasty pics.
My rainy day gun is a 12 ga trojan with a 26 in. Barrels choked .008 and.023 and another set of barrels 28 in. choked F and F.

I got a dozen or so stings on my forearms and Gracie (the culprit who stuck her foot down their hole to start the whole melee) got more I'm sure... a half hour after the event when the area had cooled down, even before I even knew my gun was broken, I let the mouth of their hole have both barrels from about 15 feet.... That'll teach 'em!

I am not super concerned about rain, but I am concerned about dragging a good gun through some of the crap that we hunt in. The last thing I need is to fall and break a good gun or use it to push brush out of the way.
This VH gives me a gun that I can do whatever I want with and not worry about it. I dont even bother cleaning it, it cant get much worse than it is.
There's a pretty good gunsmith that hangs out here and posts a bit that could probably fix that gun up.
