The modular soulder rigs I build are pretty much entirely held together with Chicago screws. One of these I made for Daniel S to fit his massive .44 Magnum. A couple weeks ago he emailed me saying that one of the screws had fallen out. He asked that I replace the missing fastener and loctite all of them. Not a problem. We’d been planning a get together for feral hog hunting for some time. I told him I’d take care of it then.
Fast forward to now. He and I are sitting in a blind, waiting for pork. That’s not the funny part though. As I sat down next to him, I felt a *SNAP* under my coat as my shoulder rig came apart. I felt the gun from my right side slide around to my back. Oh no. Looking down, I saw the little screw fall to the ground. I don’t know what hapened to the post – it has disappeared. I’ve been using that rig regularly for well over a year now without issue. I think Daniel S may be bad luck for Chicago screws!
