Update on my gun, set her up with that 870 in full choke and Winchester Longbeards 3” 6’s. At 30 yards we had something like 35-40 pellets in the head/neck area of a turkey target. I think that’ll work.
sounds like birds are in trouble  :tup:

 :yeah: :yeah:

"20 is the new 12"   1 5/8 oz of 9's that shoot like lead 5's...(this is apex advertising saying now) allows shagging a 5# shotgun around hills...
LOL I shoot Apex but I shoot the Z20 series.

I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes. Sounds like you have it set up to rock and roll. Make sure to let her know that you don't feel any kick when you blast a bird. I know the 20 doesn't kick as much as the 12, but I've found it helps new hunters to know it's not as bad when you have some adrenalin in your system.
I laugh in the face of Danger. Ha ha ha Danger Face!

Yeah I've gone over that, but she doesn't really understand how big of an impact that has yet. Hasn't done any hunting before so I'm excited to see the adrenaline hit when we get a gobbler coming in.
