Turkey Guns
« on: August 11, 2009, 08:56:02 PM »
All this turkey talk has got me to wondering on what y'all's favorite turkey guns are.

Rifles are not legal in Georgia. Are they in your state?

I shoot an American Arms 10 gauge side by side. It has extra full chokes on a 24" barrel. I have tru-glow sights installed and it's got the old original trebark camo tape on it. (scopes are legal here, but I don't use them)

The gun is made in Spain and is not a high quality weapon, I picked it up at one of those little mom and pop gun shops back in 1988 and at first thought I'd thrown my money away. I had a gunsmith tinker with it and, and he tightenedf up the choke, put on the glow sights and the camo tape. And it will tear up a turkey out to 60 yards with #4 or #6.


To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

I've taken several guns turkey hunting, but finally settled on a Remington 870 Express Magnum 12 gauge shooting 3" Federal #4 shot.  That gun has taken all of my turkeys.

I ran across a pretty good deal a few years ago and got a Remington 870 Express Super Magnum.  The gun came with the turkey choke, sling, scope mount, B-Square scope (I think), the modified choke, wrench, and all of the papers.  I'm not going to say what I paid for it, but let's just say I paid well less than the gun itself was worth. O0  I've been wanting to take that think out and try it with the 3 1/2" shells but haven't really had a chance yet.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

No rifles for turkey here in MI.

I have a Winchester Super X M1.  Picked it up from a friend for 70 bucks! :shock: 
Can't get much of a better deal than that.

Now that you bring this up though, I seem to recall BC saying that it is teh suck for a turkey gun due to the fixed modified choke...unless I manage to draw teh turkey in to 30 yards or less. :-\

If you like the shotgun, noname, you could always take it to a gunsmith and for about $150 or so, you should be able to have that modified choke reamed out and a set of swappable one installed. I almost did that with a shotty I had. O0
