    Not exactly the same gun as its in the trunk right now only differance is the Speedfeed TacIV stock on the turky gun which pulls double duty as a patrol shotgun just screw on the mag extension and your ready for street varmints.

    Rem 870 Express magmun
    21" Rem barrel rem chokes , barrel was back bored and forcing cone lengthened by our own Shawn Carlock , Ported by Vang Comp
    Trigger spring was actualy made a bit heavier but the engagments were stoned and trued the trigger breaks at 6lbs but with zero creep.
    Stattergun Technologies Ghost ring sites with tritium front and rear
    Uses a Briley strait rifles extended/ported choke tube .665"
    This makes for an honest consistant 50yd turkey gun with #4 shot.

    If were able to retire now (which I can't) and take as many turkeys, legally, as I could until I was no longer able to hunt I don't think I'd get near half your total. I'm not into killing the bird per se, but rather all the hunting and watching sunrises; I hope you continue to enjoy it as will I.

    Good Lookin' Scattergun

    James,

    You Policin' in LA? That sure is a nice 870. I was a deputy in Texas in the 80's and 90's. You have a bona fide killin' machine in that Remmy. I always wanted to do some of the things to my 870 that you've done to yours. Back then I never had the $$ to do it. Misplaced priorities. I'd spend $1500.00 on a semi-auto pistol but not on my shotgun, yet when I knew things were goin’ to hell in a hand basket I’d grab that shot gun every time. That 870 is a helluva a lot better tool practically and psychologically than a fancy 1911.

    well, age has slowed me down some, I still enjoy hunting them, just just not totaly obsessed with it like I was from around 1980 till a couple years ago. I worked full time night shift and still hunted 6 days a week. They're also getting alot more pressure from way more hunters and the invasion of coyotes into this area.

    Hunting Pressure

    I didn't become a member of the Legion until 2004. In 4 1/2 short years it seems to me hunter interest has tripled. Could be my imagination but I don't think so. What do you guys think?
