Get your 3.5" gun, 2-3 turkey hunting friends, and 3-4 diff turkey loads and have fun! Your 3.5" gun should be able to handle anything from 2.75" on up to 3.5".

Recommendations: at least a 3" shell. Shot size #5 is a good starting point for lead shot. Once you get into the "hevi-stuff" then #6 or one of the blended shot loads might be an option. Personally, I like it simple.

You may be surprised at the results. And remember...a gobbler taken with a 2.75" shell is just as dead as one shot with a 3.5" shell.

Have fun, and good luck this spring!
