It is his 6br imp. Looks identical to the moag only it is built on an xr-100 action instead of a bat and it weighs 30 lbs less.

Re: Coyotes around Phoenix?

I c-clamp the press to the wood stand and hold the back end of it and that's it for seating and just barely bumping the shoulders back. For FL sizing, I can clamp the stand to the bed rails of my truck. Nothing fancy, just functional.

The reason I made the wood stand with such a large top is so that I have plenty of room to put my arbor press and a box of bullets on there when needed.

My sister recently moved to Phoenix. We'll be visiting soon. I was wondering if there was a good population of coyotes nearby. Guessing there is.

Yes , we have good numbers of them around. You will have to drive out a ways. If your calling be prepared for shots from 10 to 400 yards or more. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

UncleB,
I live in Santaquin. I've found quite a few dogs nearby. But, they have more education than I do! Can Arizona really be tougher? I usually go to Nevada. I spent Thanksgiving in Reno. I shot several coyotes while we were out and about. They seemed to pose for proper bullet placement. Not like here!

Ron,
Haven't tried sets at the golf course. Good idea!

grit,
Reno is nothing like Phoenix, Phoenix is like a little Los Angeles, millions of people driving everywhere trying to get away from millions of other people.
Yes there are plenty of coyotes in Arizona but around Phoenix be prepared to drive farther out of "The Valley of the Sun" than 10's of thousands of other people.

Idaho Preacher,
You must have too much time on your hand's to notice who's guns goodgrouper is shooting, but on the other hand I have had a hard time deciding on what to name this fine little P-Shooter. Mini-MOAG has a nice ring to it.

Re: Coyotes around Phoenix?

What is the farthest you have ever shot one? Not counting any rifles that need wheels, who shot the longest one?
