I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Got any tips on being able to remember to remove the latches once you make the set? I may or may not have dry fired a couple over the top of a beaver head...i mean i know a friend that did that once...or twice.

Nothing like beating a dead horse, Nessy!
If I promise to modify my 330s within the next 14 days, will you leave that poor dead animal alone?
(Great tip. I just haven't got around to doing it yet.)
Maybe you could rerun some of your other neat tips. The stubborn and lazy need all of the encouragement as they can get.

Or just spend the money and get belisles. They are a magnum trap that can hold most any leg, foot, or tail catch. They will make you more money and save you time.

The Belisle dogs are junk....they always have to be squeezed back together with a pair of channel locks . Not worth the money
