20 Gauge Slug Gun

Looking for some ideas on a short 20 Gauge slug gun for hunting the thick stuff. I want it short with a synthetic stock. Have the itch to carry a slug gun on some drives.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks
Dave

I carry a 870 20gauge youth with a 2-7 x 34 red feild works great for me and you can buy them cheap

Re: 20 Gauge Slug Gun

I set up an 870 youth for my turkey gun. It DESTROYS turkeys. Put on a ShurShot stock, a patriot sear spring, polished the barrel had it drilled and tapped. She weighs a shade over 5 pounds and is a dream to carry for long hunts and is very nimble in the hand. I wanted tonrun her for deer in NY too, so I picked up a fully rifled slug barrel for her and with 285 grain sabots she is lights out to 150 yards and only gained a few ounces due to the thicker barrel wall.

I have a mossberg bantam set up with a red dot scope. Even added weight to the stock to absorb recoil but it can easily be removed. Gun is less than a year old. PM me if your interested I may be willing to part with it.

If you want an accurate slug gun you want the 220F.

Re: 20 Gauge Slug Gun

Since you have a reference to T/C in your posts - why not a 20 guage barrel for the Encore. I have one for mine and love it - very accurate and easy to shoot and in the Encore form is lightweight and compact so easy to carry and to shoot quickly.
