Re: Shotgun Styles

Right now a Mossberg 535 12 gauge field/deer combo
Have open, mod, and full chokes for the 22in barrel and a 3-9x rangefinder scope for the 24in rifled barrel. have been nothing but impress since I first got it, great pack gun. Really versatile, I always take a grab bag of sizes shots and slugs and have yet to come home empty handed with it. The first time I had a chance to take it out, it knocked a 250lb boar flat on it's side from about 75yrds across small pond with hornady sst's, before the scope was on. Havent got a chance to hunt any waterfowl yet, the short barrel makes me a little wary about long shots, but it patterns well so I'll find out soon enough. Or maybe I just need an excuse to buy that double gun I've always wanted

Re: Shotgun Styles

Semiautos
SBEII - go to duck/goose gun when stuff needs to die
Gold - backup/loaner duck/goose gun
1187 - safe queen but kept for setimental reasons
1100 - same as above

O/U
Beretta 686 Onyx (12g) - ditch parrotts and doves
Beretta 686 White Onyx (20g) - quail and doves

Pump
870 exp - home defense when stuff REALLY needs to die

I used to own a SBE, but sold it once I picked up the deuce. I've since learned that selling off guns often causes regret so I figure I'll have to buy a bigger safe.

Nice choices. I like the way you think (bigger safe) Ive made the same mistake multiple times, so Im all over the bigger safe idea!!!!!

2)CZ 712 .12 ga 27'' bbl- wanted a 3 1/2'' autoloader for big fowl and turkey.
3)Rem 870 .12 ga 25'' bbl-swings easy out of a blind, and ALWAYS RELIABLE.
4)H&R .12 ga single shot- needed one to keep in the pickup calving out cows.
5)Stevens .12 ga side-x-side(just traded to for Win.94 30-30) Need another Side-x-Side cause thats how God intended Shotguns, but will prob opt for a brand with more ''quality'', but loved how it shot and having 2 triggers!
what cz O/U do you have? I started trap shooting this year and need a 12 ga for next year. I was looking at the CZ woodcock. any draw backs to not use this gun ... I was using a franchi 620 (my bird but i want a 12 ga over and under before next year.

These kriegoffs are very nice to shoot. I've shot many and them and the perazzis don't dissapoint. I'm more purpose driven over quantity so here's what I have now:
Beretta 687 ultralight
beretta 391 30" sporting clays with the parallel comb
And a never fired still in the cosmoline, remington 870 wingmaster left hand 28" with rem factory choke tubes (they made very few in this configuration)
I have also owned a beretta 687 32" sporting clays, rem 870 and a browning bps (I hated this thing)
I used to sell shotguns for a living and have shot most everything from kriegoffs to stogers. Let me know if anyone wants to know the plusses and minuses when compairing brands and models. I would be happy to help.
