I know my buddies Benelli SBEII is at the bottom of the river in Lake River down in Vancouver, WA.  The dog thought a stick looked like a duck and rushed to the side of the 10' boat and rolled it.

Remington 870 3.5" Super Mag. Tough as nails and keeps on shooting like a dream. For me, it is the best for what I like to do...Kill ducks, turkeys and geese.  8)

Well..

I really want to switch to an auto but havent decided if the mossy 935 is legit or not! dont want blow 1K$ so holding off for now...

but I have hunted with the mossy 835 for everything for over 10 years now...  last night...I put a nighthawk recoil suppression stock on it..we will see if it helps...

The idea was a day of 3.5 inch goose shots might kick my butt. Gun is ready...now just need someone to take me goosin'

 ;)



ps- Yes, Yes...I know that my hunting shotgun is starting to look a bit tactical!

Knowing Chim-Chim more like 12  :chuckle:
Mines a 12g Ruger Red Label synthetic stainless. A third shot is usually wasted IMO.

Remington 870 3.5" Super Mag... Picked it up for brand new- in box- for $195.00 when GI Joes was going out of business.  Don't know how I did it- best purchase of my life.  Tough as $h!t and shoots well.

Looking into a Benelli SBEII... What do you guys think? I've heard great things.  Let me know. :)

GOOD LUCK THIS WEEKEND GUYS! We've waited 9 months for this! :)

Most of the time on the westside(salt) I use a 870 12gaTurkey gun wthe the stock shortenned to 12.5".  Over on the other side I use a Browning 20ga Superposed Lightning or an SKB 100 12ga SXS.  This year I'll be shooting a Charles Daly Youth 20ga for almost everything.

After the first shot the rest are just noise.

My trusty Pawn shop bought for $250 12g Charles Daly autoloader.  My back up is another inexpensive Stoeger Condor O/U.  If that breaks, my ability to throw small rocks and gravel at passing ducks hopefully knocking them down.

I had an 870 the last 2 seasons and workrd great but I decided to upgrade to the sx3 waterfowl edtion. What a difference not only is is smooth shooting it handles everything with out fail shooting 2 3/4 6 for phea and you name it up for ducks and geese. Going on a turkey hunt at the end of the month as well. Semi-auto is the only way to go.

The 870 is not a sexy pick, but I can't find anything wrong with it.  It's a synthetic Super Mag with my sweet custom camo job on the metal using bow-flage spray paint :).  Can't really afford to have it dipped and need some kind of barrier from the salt.  Plastics are still black with a DU sticker on one side of the butt and Delta Waterfowl on the other side, with a Ragged Outdoors sticker and the forearm.  The pattermaster tops things off on the barrel.  I will not duck hunt without that in my gun.  It was spendy, but I am a results oriented guy and I can't argue with the results of that thing.

Been using a Winchester Super x-2 up until last night.  Has major problems with it not ejecting spent shells and not firing shells period.  Would strike the primer, but not hard enough to ignite the shell.

Bought a Benelli SBE II last night (well dad got it for me as a x-mas/bday present :IBCOOL:) and I can't wait to wack some fowl with it.  Got it in 28" barrel, 3-1/2" chamber, wetlands camo!!
