Tried my hand at hydro dipping last night. Dipped my wifeís new 20ga 11-87 compact turkey gun. It turned out better than I expected.

I am shooting my Remington 11-87 super magnum. I just have my full choke in it and shoot 3 1/2" turkey loads. Works as intended to 40 yards.

No 40yd shots w/a 410 using TSS #9's?
I got kicked off of a FB Turkey group for saying 40yd shots with a 410 is going to wound a lot of Turkeys. BTW, I use a 12ga smoke pole, w/#4's or a 12 ga with 3" #6's or a 20ga w/3" #5's or archery. It all depends on what I want to walk out the backdoor with.

RETIRED? Good for you when did you become a Burden on the working class. That just means you will be chasing dinosaurs more.

Tried my hand at hydro dipping last night. Dipped my wifeís new 20ga 11-87 compact turkey gun. It turned out better than I expected.

Why would you think painting your turkey gun in turkey head colors was a good idea? Besides it being what turkeys see well itís also what hunters are looking for to shoot..

My setup is rusty old wall hanger.
So rusty I named it ol red.
The choke is the best part.
I call it a open modified ninja choke.
It's like a ninja ,everytime some rust flakes off I get a cool new pattern ,like a ninja star you never know which way it will fly.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

No different than wearing the ceremonial horn hat.

Well I was patterning my 11-87 super mag yesterday when it decided to stop firing. No broken firing pin and no primer strikes. I tore it apart and donít see anything out of the ordinary. I ordered a new springs kit for the trigger housing and firing pin return spring. If that doesnít solve it then itís time to replace this gun.

Really well done! Nice!
Since my wife got a different shotgun I took her LH 12ga Benelli Montefeltro, reversed the safety to RH and put on a set of HiViz sights.
