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.

Sorry --

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?

Thanks

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
