H&R Slug gun

I just bought a single shot 20 gauge slug gun for my 8 year old. Here in Illinois only shotgun slugs or muzzleloaders are legal. While he is quite proficient with the muzzleloader, I wanted him to have the option of a quicker reload for late season doe hunts. It is not uncommon to shoot a couple does at a time over food plots where we hunt.

I went looking for a rifled cantilever scope mount barrel for his 11-87 youth shotgun. I discovered that it was most likely going to cost around $300 and a couple weeks to get one! However, for $219 I could buy a brand new H&R slug gun in 20 gauge. I did.

This gun shoots amazingly well for the price (well, any price!). I shot a 3 shot group at 100 yards that were all touching!:eek: I did not have my camera as I really didn't expect anything photo worthy on this range trip. This was using 7/8 ounce Lightfield slugs, by the way.

A buddy's family has 5 of these guns, all with similar results.

It is a great bargain if you have to hunt with slugs. They even come with scope base, sling, and hammer spur.

H&R makes great slug guns. We own many H&R single shot shotguns but the best is the H&R Ultra Slug Hunter. It is a 12ga w/ rifled barrel. The barrel is heavy and thick. It is a 8 gauge barrel bored to a 12 gauge.

The thing is amazingly accurate at 100 yrds, and the knockdown power is superb. Glad to see you purchased a H&R for the young man. Hope you two have a great hunt .
