Whewwwwwwwww, TSS aint cheap!  Everything seems to be hard to find right now,  for a reasonable price anyways.

I can't find any 20ga TSS OR other turkey loads around here. I only have about 5 left I think & I really enjoy the 20ga over the 12ga. I like em close.  :biggrin:

I here ya on those money bags nasty!! After I made that post curiosity got the better of me. I went to the ammo bin & found a full box,,25rds,, of Win 20ga 3" buffered Turkey loads I forgot I bought some time ago. Those are 35yd slobberknockers! The 12 ga Federal's I have shoot damn near like a slug at 20yds with the CZ factory turkey choke. It's easy to miss with those!  :argh:

After making that post I realize I have more turkey loads than available tags for the next 20yrs or so. Maximum of 3 birds per year in Ohio.

 I have enough turkey loads to last me for the next 30 seasons but to use a 410 in New Hampshire you have to use the TSS.

Well by crikey I called Mr. Schultz today about the Thompson Contender work and spoke to him, awful nice fella! He said he would do the work but has been swamped building precision rifles. He asked me to give him a call back in  month or two. His quoted price was really good I thought, and I am definiteley going to get the work done!

I'ma gonna do this some day

 I am really tempted to call him again and see if he could slide it in and back before the May 1 opener but I don't want to be pushy  :innocentwhistle:  then again I don't know if I want to even get involved with the ridiculous cost of the TSS for turkey hunting,  but it would be nice for small game hunting  to get the work done.

 I appreciate the offer but I am going to hold out for now because they still havent  officially passed the new law and not sure if they will before the season opens.

 Yes and Vermont does too but you still can't use a hand gun in Vermont. Which sucks because our camp is in Vermont and I am a five minute drive across the Connecticut River from New Hampshire to Vermont  and 20 minutes from the camp.  I can't use my 22/410 over and under in Vermont either because you can't have a rifle with you when your turkey hunting. I swear you have to be a lawyer to know all the rules and regulations in any of the states.  If you ask five different fish cops a question you'll get four different answers from them.

 My only goal with using a 410 is to take one with my Thompson Contender I don't really have any desire to take one with a 410 Long gun.

I hear ya! That's why I really like Ohio. It's all so much simpler here.  :yoyo:

I hope you get to fulfill your dream hunt for sure!!  :yoyo:
