Well it's going to be deer season and I'm going to buy a designated slug gun. Right now I have an 870 with a slug barrel which works good. But I have to switch barrels and take the scope off it every year which is sort of a pain(literally also, cause that means I have to site it in every year and 12 gauge sabots can take a toll on ones shoulder after a while.)
I know you can get barrels with a cantilever mount but would rather just spend the money and get a designated slug gun.
I'm looking for any suggestions with gun/ammo combos that you guys have had success with. I've been seriously thinking about an H&R Ultra Slug Hunter w/ thumb hole stock. Good reviews, supposed to be a tack driver. Thanks fellas.
Both Hubby and I have ended up with severely bruised shoudlers from rifles/shotguns.
We don't hunt, just practice.
If you can afford it, they do sell certain types of body armor that will pad your shoulder so you don't get the impact, at least as bad.
My dad hunted for years and wonders why his shoulder is so bad now.
Think about all the damage you're doing to it.
Oh, and good luck in your hunting.
A few weeks ago, I saw a large family of wild turkeys crossing the street and could only thing "Mmmmm, dinner".
I've been having fun with snap caps lately with my Glock.
I load my 8 mags with snap caps in various places in the mag.
I shuffle the mags so I don't know where the snap caps are.
What it does it jam your gun (doesn't hurt it).
It teaches you how to handle your gun when it jams (slap bottom of mag, pull slide back and fire).
Of course, my targets are off now that I have to shoot with a stance with a big boot on my foot from it being broken, which makes my footing uneven.
