    Got my winchester 1300,20 guage out n cleaned her up n grandads L.C.Smith double 12 with custom ordered 48" barrels and wifes stoeger double 20 also.
    I will shoot trap with my winchester,but splatter board with the smith.i usually tear the splatter board up if i use the left tube.at splatter board range its about a 10 inch pattern.
    I enjoy turkey shoots,meet friends support vfw n get winters meat .
    Anybody else go to turkey shoots?

    I watched but did not compete. When I fire a gun or rifle I want at least 50 lbs of meat to take home.

    I used to go to turkey shoots but haven't done so in years. My go to shotguns for that were 12 gauge. Had a couple of model 37 Winchesters and a Remington Wingmaster 870 that were good shooters. I still have the 870...full choke 30" that shoots tight and dense for what it was and probably still is..

    dont know why he ordered it this long,seen 1 other like it at that huge gun show at tulsa 10 years ago.it was not more than 50% good condition for $700 .i cam back past that venders table,was gone.asked n he said a l.c.smith collector bought it.and as tight as it is choked it dont recoil bad . Must be the lenght that absorbs shock.im 5'7" n it stands tall beside me

    It looks almost like the center of the target had been .22'd in the center.
    Good shooting.
