I am considering a new shotgun. What gage do you ladies use?

I have a 410 and it is a blast to shoot, but I keep hearing that the pattern is too small and you have to be on top of the turkeys to make a kill. A friend of ours hunts with his grandpa's old 1914, 410 all the time and has great luck.

Well go big :)
a Benilli 20ga over and under double barrel, 26 inch barrel would do well for you ;)

Now, that Larry is passed out on the floor,

410 is a fun gun to shoot, with very little kick ( if any at all )
going to a 20 ga would be the next step. Its got what you need for
both play and hunting.
type of gun , pump, double barrel or auto, is totaly up to you.
The old stand by Rem 870 express, is an all around good pump gun for your uses.
you can change out the choke tubes for what you are shooting, be it hunting turkeys, shooting clays, up land or water fowel.

it won't break the bank and you'll get years of service out of it.

If you were going to get into sporting clays, a double barrel or auto loader would be nice.

I seem to recall at christmas, someone saying, it had better not be some gun under the tree ;)

Larry check out Gunbroker.com it is an online auction site.

by the way I stopped and drooled over the Kimber 45's again today.
down to the CDP II or the tactical.
soon very very soon ;)

:) if I say cause their Pretty, that prob wouldn't be a good reason :)

light weight frames, they felt the best.

The tactical has a mag reciever.
the style of 3 dot sights,
dual safteys.

over all the ones that really caught my attention.

price wise, I need to shop.
both were over 900.00
the cdp II was just shy of a grand.

I saw the exact same cdp II at another shop for 680.00

so its time to start shopping.

The CDP II is a black frame, brushed silver slide, rose wood grips.
really a sharp looking firearm.

The tactical has a green tint frame, greenish black checker grips
mat black slide.

I am looking for a 4 inch. The longer barrels don't feel as balanced to me.
then again I like a little smaller gun for feel anyway.

both are 8 round capacity.

Well, Santa solved Melody's dilema. He brought her a nice Winchester Model 1300 with a 22" vent rib barrel on it and she is already getting the hang of busting those clays. The real test will be her first bird hunt in February. She is going on a "Women Afield" hunt with the Colorado DOW. Mmmmmmmmmm; I can smell those birds cooking already.
