Default New England 10 ga.

Just bought a new england 10 ga. 24 in. barrel screw in xtra full choke. Just wondering what you guys think about this gun or if anyone hunts with one let me know how you like it. It KICKS like a mule. Overall if you can take the kick i believe it will be a turkey thumper... Thanks.

It will be a turkey thumper, I have an old NE 10 gauge with a fixed full choke and it shoots good, but a buddy has one like yours and it shoots an awesome pattern. One of the tightest patterns I' ve ever saw.

Strut- What choke tube is your buddy useing? I' ve got a kicks in mine and I think my pattern could be tighter. I haven' t had it out hunting but it sure is a " thumper" on my whole upper body! I drilled and tapped mine for a TrueGlo adjustable sight, worked a good load and put it away.

Your NE 10 ga. will serve you well. I used a NE 12 ga. for years. " Thumper" would be a good name for your gun.

Strut,

I may be crazy but I' m not stupid, (well that depends who your talking to I guess).

I used NE Pardner for years. It was the 3 inch version. I filled the stock with lead to help absorb some of the recoil but that baby can still get your attention. I have only owned one 3 1/2" 12 ga. shotgun in my life and I sold that. I was going through my inventory the other day and found two boxes of T shot that I don' t know what to do with. Maybe I' ll use it to dynamite stumps or something.
