Night time hunting with other people makes me want to use a single shot shotgun instead of pump or semi.
I do not own any Encore shotgun barrels.
Understand that the Turkey barrels attached to a regular Encore stock does kick a bit...Probably best to use the Prohunter stock system when using the turkey barrel?

Do you like the Regular shotgun barrels or the turkey designated barrels the best? The turkey does come in just blue and also camo...

What I like about the turkey barrels for night time predator calling... The front sight has a equal too Raybar type sight... By attaching a Truglo bow light (pack of 3 cost $12.00) to the barrel you can illuminate the front sight and use it at night time.

like all of you I could not see paying $340.00 for a 20 gauge PH slug barrel.. I too purchased a 20 gauge Model 500 pump shotgun that came with slug barrel, field barrel, 5 chokes, add on cheek piece, scope with mounts too.
Dicks Sporting Goods...About $200.00. with a rebate yet...

Not quite sure I understand the point here. Gun safety is gun safety.

John Henry last year I took a brand new hunter fox hunting with me... He never hunted at night before and he never hunted fox before.. I allowed him to use my equipment. I felt better that he had a single shot in his hands. A NEF 10 gauge and of course Encore 17 Rem rifle instead of a pump or semi..
When I hunt alone or with seasoned night hunters I use a pump or semi...

What I like best is the accuracy of the slug barrel. The few I have shot just amazed me. And the turkey barrels I shot grouped incredibly at 50 yards with a 3" shell(I consider to be the farthest shot for a 3" shell).
Now see this is yet another reason not to buy a cheap slug gun... If the slug gun is accurate..It just might be worth
owning an Encore Slug Barrel...Um I would think that 20 gauge would be OK since just imagine the size of a 20 gauge slug and it would not kick as bad as a 12 gauge. yep it would have to be a 20 gauge slug Encore barrel for me.
Someday...Um maybe not in my lifetime...Our children children will be using slug guns only for big game. Now that also would be a reason to get one in the Encore system to hand down to them?
