Single shot 20ga TC Encore. It's getting a hair cut this year by shortening the barrel from 26 to 20 inches,

Not interested in hunting turkey don't even know if there is a huntable population in these parts. I do find this thread interesting looking for ideas for a rig for close coyote work. Grizz

I may use the new to me BPS10. Plan on an RMR mounted. That means I have until Spring 2020 to get it back and practice with it. If not, I have an old single shot 10 that a PO installed a piece of 7/8" all thread in the buttstock over the stock bolt. A poor man's recoil reducer. Will shorten the LOP before hand. Be safe and Be Well, Rustyzipper.

I retired my old Remington 11/87 this year. Next season I plan to use my Remington V3 with a reflex sight.

No offense Timbo but anyone that says old and 11/87 in the same sentence makes me feel really old.

Just got the barrel back from Gunsmith. 20 inches + choke. Haven't shot it yet. Sure is quick, handy, Just what these old bones need. Like it! 26 inches of barrel was waaaay too long.

Yeah, I think the 87 portion in 11-87 designates the year 1987. For this 80 yr old that's practically a brand new introduction. Nothing old about that. : -) At most it'll be a 32 year old.

It'll be a toss-up this year. Stoeger 3020 with Rhino .575 and Nitro Ray's #7s, or the TriStar Viper G2 .410, Comp-n-Choke .385 and Federal TSS #9s.

All boils down to where I see birds and how close I figure I can get them to come in.

I've patterned my citori 725 with a turkey choke and its incredible, but too nice to take into a muddy turkey blind.

I would have to wear a proper tweed jacket if I took that one turkey hunting.

Very nice.


Other than that, How was the show Mrs. Lincoln?

Beretta 391, 26", Kick Off system, one of the finest shotguns ever made...takes the kick out of heavy kicking shells.

Didn't do well last fall, but will use my 391 sporting again this spring. It's killed 4 turkeys and I think it's one of those lucky shotguns. I use the standard full choke and 3" Remington Nitro turkey loads, 5 shot. It patterns very well out to 40 yards. A little too pretty maybe but it works.

I just ordered a blued VR 20 gauge barrel for this turkey season was going to try it out this year over my 12 gauge barrel. Any suggestions on ammo you have would be appreciated.
