What's your waterfowl gun?
« on: September 28, 2009, 07:25:43 PM »
I'm just kinda bored I guess... And too lazy to look back and see if there was already one of these threads, But I'm curious to know what kinda gun you shoot for waterfowl.

This year I'm gonna be rockin' the cheap Stoeger P350 :chuckle:. But I really don't mind it, seems like a decent shotgun to me. :hello:

I bought the same one with the same logic but have come to realize that I will never use a 3.5", but still a great gun

on the sound-870 3.5" Super Mag, custom painting
anywhere else-11-87 premier The greatest gun I have ever and probably will ever own. I swear that gun has killed more things than it's been pointed at.

All good guns mentioned.  Started out first gun Mos. 500, then went to the Browning BPS, wore that gun out, picked up 870 wingmaster, then the 870 Mag Express.  Then Benelli came out with the Nova, so I ordered one up and picked it up in 1998.  I wore all the camo off the gun and the choke rusted in place.  Ended up selling it.  Picked up another Nova.  Then decided to go with a semi-auto.  Picked up an 11-87 as I had used the 1100 for trap for a long time.  Didn't care for it.  Traded it for the Browning BPS 10 gauges. Then picked up the Benelli SBEII which I shoot very well.  Recently picked up the Benelli 90 and Winchester sx2 as back up guns for guests.  I'm into the waterfowl thing like an addiction.

Browning Gold Hunter Dura-Touch 3.5 Shadow Grass. Three years with it, outstanding.  All weapons are different to each person.  When I throw this one up it fits just right.

Browning BPS stalker, flat black and shoots good for me..
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

Benelli Nova. Was black, but hand painted some camo on it after a post i saw over on DHC. Looks pretty decent, but next time i'll use automotive clear coat. I've got my eyes on a new browning maxus if I ever get back to work.

Man you go through shotguns like crazy! :yike:

Do you have a sling on your SBE II? If so what kind? and What swivels?
