Not sure if OP is smart enough to handle a firearm so I won't recommend anything.

12 ga Remington 1100 and go dove hunting for 1st time
post #18 of 42
Yes there are plenty of places that only allow shotguns for deer hunting.

I give a big +1 to the above. Get a remmington 1100 semi-auto in 12ga and it will do everything you want. If you really like a pump gun the I would say go with a 12ga remmington Wingmaster. You can get a good used wingmaster for $500. or a brand new remmington 870 for around $150.

OP should check if there's an Orvis store downtown, to spend on blue-collar gear.

Great gun. I used this model when I shot trap in 4-H.

Dove hunting sounds awesome - thanks for the tips, folks! I don't mind the aspersions on my intelligence at all, by the way, so if they're going to be mixed in with good advice, keep 'em coming!

The Wingmaster is an 870, it's just a smoother and better looking package than the 870 Express that you mention in your last sentence. The 870 Express isn't $150 anymore, though. One can expect to pay around $300 for one.

This guy would have this table set up with 0.22 pistols facing this berm set up with trees decorated with ornaments along with busted out T.V.s with Santa toys in them. We'd drink ale, Scotch, and homemade fruit brandy while shooting the ornaments. It was fun as hell, and when you walk outside, all of the locals are on their porches and sidewalk looking at us wondering what the hell all these white people are doing shooting guns in a building.

That sounds insanely fun.

Yea I just didn't feel like writing out a whole long post about the difference between a wingmaster and an 870. I haven't looked at buying an 870 in a while so I didn't realize they had goon up. I'm really thinking about a Wingmaster 28ga, for dove, so that's probably my next shotgun. Either that or a Browning O/U in 28ga. I know big price difference.

To the OP: dove hunting is a blast and a Remmington 1100 12ga would be a great gun for that.

Last time I looked at Browning shotguns they were nice looking but fairly heavy. I'm not much of a shotgunner but if I was going to buy a new O/U I'd take a hard look at the Remington Premier. It's a beautiful gun that shoulders really well and should be priced $100 under the Browning Citori. Includes a pretty nice case and a handful of chokes like any shotgun should but many companies forget about.

Doing anything because you fancy the "image" it exudes is always a dubious endeavor... yet seems to be more and more popular these days (are they still putting carabiners on water bottles?). The funny thing is rednecks do it just as much as city folk (PNW yokels mimicking Texan accents )

I only shoot at the range. I don't have a permit so I cannot own a gun in NJ. But I get to the ranges in PA and shoot whatever my heart desires. I do like shooting skeet with the shotgun. If I have time I would like to learn bow hunting this fall. My future father in law does it all the time so I am hoping he will teach me.

+1. Watermelons are a favorite target for us. Wishing I could avoid the element of one-upmanship, here are a couple of pics from what we like to call "Family week". Every year we throw about 1,000 rounds into a boat in order to create an artificial reef. This is Boat #4.

Apologies for the hijack but I'd trust some preschoolers I know with a gun before I'd turn one over to the OP.
