Laugh all you want, but my "go to" gun is one I've carried since 1988, a Mossberg Model 500. 24" barrel, camo finish, 3" chamber 12 gauge. Factory X-full choke allows it to shoot good patterns with Federal Premium 5s. It kills 'em and it is an extension of my arm. The only thing I've done to it is add a cheap, magnetic fiber optic front sight. It helps me get on them in low light.

I also have a Winchester Model 1300 that I won at a DU banquet. I put a 4x shotgun scope on it with the diamond reticle. I am going to try various choke/shell combinations in this gun until I find one that works to suit me and then I might carry it some.

But the Mossberg suits me just fine. I can take it apart and put it back together blindfolded. And it shoots every time.

just a FYI in case anybody's interested. I would not go with the 1300 if I had to do it over again. My buddy's rem 870 sps with the factory x full turkey choke that came with the gun shoots better out of the box than my win with improvements

Jesus, a cheap as hell mossberg maverick I bought from Arrow 3 out of a parking lot with a standard full choke. As long as you don't try to kill em at 55 yards (4x) it'll drop em in their tracks all day.

I used to shoot an NEF single shot with a built in modified choke. I"ve killed two with that at 35 and 40 yards. Both dropped dead in their tracks.

I'm a firm believer that you don't need anything special to kill those old yard birds.

Oh, and I'll shoot whatever turkey shells I have laying around. Usually 3 inch number fives, but I've been known to pop em with 6's and 4's as well.
