New Toy - Thoughts?
Found a new turkey/goose gun this weekend at a gun show. CVA Gobbler 12-gauge BP shotgun, 1999 NWTF Edition. I'd like to someday graduate to a flintlock shotgun, but this is a good starting point and the price was right.
Looking forward to learning how to use it over the next few months, and hopefully knock off a bucket list item by harvesting a turkey with it next spring. I also plan to take it goose hunting every now and again, if for no other reason that to aggravate my ol' man
First item of business is to find a way to put an adjustable raised rifle-style sight on it. When I shoulder it, my head can't come down close enough to see straight down the barrel to the bead. I can eventually get down on it enough, but in the heat of the moment I don't want to have to think about it. It is tapped for a scope mount but I'd like to avoid that if possible for aesthetic reasons.
I'm not new to BP shooting but have never used a BP shotgun before. Any thoughts or advice I can use to get started on this journey? Thanks!
