Re: Shotguns


A 9mm with the right bullets like GoldDot's or HydraShock's will get the job done just as well as the big boys. If you can hit them in the right place a .25 ACP (like the one sitting in front of me full of GoldDots) will get the job done.

Back to topic. An expensive firearm will not make you a better shot. I get invited to some expensive/upscale turkey shoots and I love busting the 'clays' crowd with my old $35 Stevens. I've been shooting it for 47 yrs. and am pretty good with it.

pritty much anything in the remington 870 family will suit the bill... i have my ccw license for NY and that was a bitch to get (another story) but yeah if your lookin for the drop you where you stand gun, 870 is the best bet... get it with the 18.5 inch barrel and throw either a pistol grip or tac stock on it... i have a surefire light on mine and a sidesaddle... gun gives me 14 rounds of piece of mind when shes all said and done... only had to call on it once and cause of the light im convinced i didnt need to use it.

Re: Shotguns


Rotator cuff surgery both shoulders after a fall 3 yrs back. My first shot of the year I thought I ripped that muscle off the bone again. Took about 3 months for the hurting to stop. Had MRI's on both to make sure all is well. Doctor thinks I should give up hunting

My next shot at a duck will be with a Benelli Vinci. Been a pump guy all my life and it's funny when I used my dads auto I would always try to pump itand only get one shot off

I know it's alot of cash for a gun but not smoking for 3 yrs pays for it. My reward. I can't wait to shoot that thing!

Merry Christmas to all !

Re: Shotguns


benelli pistol grips are real nice. they're great home defense and tactical shotguns. Those hydrashocks pack a good punch.

H&R makes a 10 gauge single shot for turkey hunting. If you've ever shot an H&R 12 ga. or even their 20 ga. you'll know they kick like nothing else because they're so light. I couldn't even imagine shooting their 10 gauge it looks like it's modeled after my 12 ga. and I was pretty bruised up after shooting trap with it earlier this year.
