I'll be sporting a new rig next season. Traded my Browning Maxus for a couple of handguns and some cash, and got a Remington 870 SM with shur-shot stock and a 23" barrel. Got a Sumtoy Customs choke I plan to use (depending on patterning that I plan to do in the next several weeks). It should be much more manageable to carry this thing around in the woods than my Maxus was. If I can get it to pattern like my Maxus did, we'll be golden. The only things left to do on it are to decide if I want to use the iron rifle sights that came on it, or go with a Burris FF3 like I used on my maxus, or a 1-4 power scope. Leaning toward one of the first two options right now. I know the iron sights would work fine, but I really liked the FF3 on my maxus, so not sure that I want to "downgrade" so to speak. We'll see.

Anyway...not really important info at all, just wanted to talk about my new toy! Ha!

Default new gun

Sounds like a nice rig, not trying to top you but will be fielding a new turkey sniper myself. Won a Beretta A300 NWTF edition at the Palmetto Sportsmans classic. Added a beartooth stock riser, Beretta weaver base & a Vortex Venom reflex sight. Only thing lacking is a jebs headhunter choke. The truglo choke that came with it is junk. Knock 'em down Bibleman.

That sounds like a good set up ya got there. If you need someone to break it in for ya let me know . I got talked into going to a Camo and Pearls NWTF banquet with the wife on Friday. Looks like a bunch of womens stuff in the auction and raffles. Hopefully there will be a gun or 2 to get some ticket for lol. The last banquet I went to I won a Saiga 12 gauge. Not sure what I will ever use it for though. I've had it for 2 years and never fired it. Kinda kept it around incase all hell broke loose during the election lol

I won big in the western hunting lotteries this year. I think my best line-up in 20 years applying: AZ Kaibab archery deer, AZ unit 1 archery elk, WY unit 108 pronghorn, Iowa zone 5 archery deer. All overlap very conveniently!

Sweet, springspur! And congrats on the draws, zim!

I haven't been able to pattern my new gun yet, but will be testing out the stock Remington super full turkey choke that came with it, a jelly head, and a Sumtoy using Maxblends...got a ton of that stuff left, so going to see which one performs with it best before considering other loads in the future. It's been too hot, and I've been too busy to get out and shoot.
