the right gun?

8 posts in this topic

I consider the question every year, but have not gone away from my beneli 12 gauge all-around gun.

What would be the best gun for the money? side-by-side over/under brand? cost? gauge??

Just wondering what you guys think.

Thanks

Best gun for what? Guns are like golf clubs. For different situations different guns will work better than others.

I throw in a vote for the 16 ga in whatever frame of O/U is in your price range....

I own 12's and 20's. I shoot them both. It comes down to personal preferance.

What ever gun you like to shoot and feels good in your hands is the perfect gun.

Different strokes for different folks.

I still have the old 12 gauge pump, but last year I found a nice 20 gauge o/u for a good price. The fit is really nice and it sure is nice to have a lite gun when walking all day. I spent a lot of time at stores seeing how the gun fit to my shoulder and how it felt when you swung it up and side to side.

The gun that you can afford or is paid for and has that perfect fit. I have gone through several shotguns over the years and the gun I carry 95% percent of the time is my old Browning BPS Field model with an english stock and a 22" barrel. I use it for grouse, pheasant and ducks and it works just fine. For sure there are better models and gauges better suited for a particular bird, but for me it fits great and I shoot it really well. Thats the right gun.

I guess I meant best gun for the money. O/U or S-S 12 ga 16 gage?

Best price? What can a guy get for like $600?

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
