My Remington 870 Super Mag. 12 gauge that I do all my shotgun hunting with. It has a 26" barrel and full camo and shoots 2 3/4, 3, or 3 1/2" shells.

No need anymore for these big bangers!! Take a look at the Moss--510 mini camo for around $300.. in 20 gauge magnum and it fits into your back pocket it just might be perfect for carrying all day and up and down. With the modern hevi-shot 13's in 7 shot at 1 1/4 ounces it will level any turkey out to forty yards without question with manageable recoil and hitting just as hard as anything else.. it's a great little gun that packs a punch and a half.. put a Nikon 1-5 on it and your set for life.. don't be afraid to take a long hard look.

Well it would have to be my 11-87 sps-t in Mo BL green. If this gun could talk about the last 23 years, what it has seen, where it has been and what it has done. It sure would be a story. All three of my kids killed their first long beards with her also.

My Benelli Super Black Eagle I with 24" barrel and full camo. The gun sits under a Leupold/Gilmore red dot sight. I shoot Win. Supreme 12 ga. 3.5" HV 2 oz. of #6 shot thru a Kick's GT .655 choke. This combo has taken a number of gobblers without fail.

I've been shooting the same Browning Auto 12ga. 3" mag. for 35 years now. Went trough several stocks and forearms before I wised up and bought a synthetic set. Can't tell you how many coats of camo paint it's gottin over the years, but it's alot. I just can't bring myself to carry anything else because it's never let down.

i have a 870 SM with a 23" barrel and ventilator choke. its all camo and lightweight with synthetic stocks. and if you wanted to change the chokes you can make it into a rabbit gun, waterfowl, slug, etc. it is deadly out to at least 40 yards for turkey too. you can pick one up for under 4 bills too or even cheaper used.

I am not a big gun guy and I do own only one. When I was about 16 I bought a winchester 1300. Its old, it kicks like a mule, and its pretty heavy, but for the 1 shot it takes a year it works. I put some kinda fancy choke on it last year and a red dot on top. I think I only missed once with it cause I couldn't see the front sight. Just can't see any reason to replace it.

Either one of my 870 express' wouldn't trade them for anything. I have had other nice semi autos but always liked my 870 the best.

My dad, brother, and I all have the same gun. They were 3 my dad had built about 20 years ago. Remington 1100's (one is an 11-87) with custom sleeved barrels from Mark Bansner and homemade camo spray job that looks like mossy oak bottomland. I couldn't even tell you how many birds fell to those guns combined but I wouldnt walk into the spring woods with any other.

As for the fall, I'm going to start using a Fox Sterlingworth A grade with 28" barrels and factory sling swivels. It's getting the ribs relayed on it and the chambers extended to 2 3/4".

I'm pretty happy with my Browning 12 ga. BPS 3" Upland Special with 22" barrel and JellyHead choke. I'm sure there are others I might like as well, especially with different stock configurations, but the Browning comes through every year for me.

Any one of the 5 shotguns I happen to be carrying in the woods at whatever time I happen to be out there. That being said, My dedicated turkey destroyer, 835 thumbhole shooting about any load I feed it to 40 plus yards has accounted for close to 60 birds alone. Polished the barrel to a chrome like finish, had the trigger worked, a sims pad on the thumbhole stock, a bushnell trophy red/green dot scope and a .670 truglo choke and a good load of pb 5's or 6's or some HS 6's, 7's or MB's and evry single bird I have ever dropped the hammer on with her had met a quick and sudden demise...except for ONE...last year when I let the old man carry here and he missed a big gobbler clean at 30 yards, though the 4" sapling at 8 yards in front of the muzzle wasn't so lucky.
