tilting it to the right would aim it right at my face....

I'd tilt it to the left!

You telling me I don't need to get Maura Healey involved in my pending consumer protections case? hahaha

Loving this new barrel. Put a cheap red dot on it to mess around and it's a pleasure. Scope just arrived and possibly cut down the barrel a touch and recrown it to 11 degrees.

Either way, having one frame with 4 calibers. Very nice indeed.

I do. In Mass the pedestrian has the right of way no matter how stupid their personal choices

Ghosth Tilt the rifle to your right slightly as you open. I normally forget the hand the first 3 times. But I somehow remember the tilt better. Then instead of hitting your face you get to watch it float over your shoulder.

MSP Ret If you are getting hit in the face with empty brass from a ejector Handi and find it difficult to keep your face out of the way you might try this. After you start opening of the action by first pushing down the release lever place either your right or left hand (whichever is better for you) over the back of the chamber area and then complete opening the action. Your cupped hand will stop the empty from flying away and landing a distance from you and it will be in your hand. No picking it out of the chamber in cold weather or with gloves on if hunting or target shooting in cold weather. It works slick and soon becomes second nature, it is quick and reliable....<><....
