  1. On early season pheasants modified choke would be O.K. The later the season the tighter the choke and perhaps, the larger the shot. A pointing dog may alter the length of the shot, no matter the season. My BIL has shot more than his share of pheasants, in Ia., over a German Shorthair, with an improved cylinder. If they are not falling the way you like, go to a tighter choke and try some #5's. Good luck.. Mike
  2. One thing is certain..If you can't hit anything with it, it doesn't pay to keep the gun. Find the problem, get it fixed so that you can enjoy shooting this fine shotgun, or peddle it and find one that will shoot where you point it.. I have zero tolerance for a gun (any format) that doesn't shoot where it is pointed. And.. the more expensive that gun is, the more it burns my Butt!!
  3. Truckcop has it right. Shoot the gun from a bench and see where it is hitting. If it is off a mile, send her back. My SBE ll was shooting 12" high, out of the box. Sent it back, and Benelli fixed it within a month. Until you know where the POI is, you won't know why your missing your targets. Mike
  4. The M2 is probably as entry level as Benelli gets. They are great guns, but not a whole bunch cheaper. I have an M2 in 20 ga. and love the heck out of it..
  5. It's totally up to you, but the Vinci that you own will do the trick, nicely. The 12ga. 3" shell is plenty big enough to kill gobblers. They shoot them every day with smaller gauges. As far as the oddly colored, Vinci, that doesn't matter either. Not everything in the woods is the same color. There are too many people out there that think if their pants camo doesn't match their shirt, they will never kill a bird. Unless you want to spend your money, use what you've got. It will work. But, with that being said... A guy can never have enough guns!!
  6. Does it have sights of any kind on it?
  7. Is it that bad, Tucker? Haven't been on in a coon's age. Merry Christmas to you, as well..
  8. That sure looks like fun.. Great pictures. Nice weather.. That's about as cool as it gets.. Nicely done.
  9. Thanks for the info, sagedog. I am struggling with the bbl. length issue, but am leaning towards the 26". That is what I have on my Legacy, and I shoot that very well. Mike
  10. I am considering buying an M2 Field APG in 20ga. I don't quite know if I want the 26" or 24" bbl, as of yet.. Anyone have any input about this shotgun? I have the 20 ga. Legacy, but it is just too nice to beat around in the woods. Google brings up jamming issues, but I would like to get some info right from the people that own one. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.. Thanks, Mike

    Got Him!

    Congrats on the nice bird. Are those Rios out your way??
  12. Congrats on the nice gobbler..
  13. I had to shoot one with my new 10ga. BPS turkey masher. He was only 25 yards away, and looking right at me.. Never stinkin' fails..He got a snood full of Nitro 7's, that kinda messed up his noggin'. Awesome!!
  14. How long was his beard, Tucker? It looks like is well over 10".. Nice bird, my friend..
