    Benelli M4 - Sling?

    I’d give my right arm to be ambidextrous!

    My Carrier Comp tube matched perfectly with my M4! A dead ringer!

    I received my extended magazine from CC last month after a month and a half wait. They are in business and it’s all good. After I ordered, I immediately received an email, detailing my order and their billing process. Great product and great people! buy with confidence!!
  4. I just wanted to take the time to thank StrangerD for all the time and expertise that he offered me during my M4 set-up! He was always there to answer a question and I had a bunch of them! As you all know, he is crazy good with the M4 and his willingness to help puts him over the top in my book! StrangerD, you’re a good man and I deeply appreciate the help/advice you have given to me! Thanks, Mike
  5. StrangerD is not kidding! I’m into mine for $2300 and I’m just getting started! I will admit that it is money well spent!! Crazy fun! Last month I spent 98% of my weasel sack on my M4!! The rest.... I just wasted!! 😂
  6. 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
  7. 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!!
  8. 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
  9. 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..
  10. 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!!
  11. Does it have sights of any kind on it?
  12. Is it that bad, Tucker? Haven't been on in a coon's age. Merry Christmas to you, as well..
  13. That sure looks like fun.. Great pictures. Nice weather.. That's about as cool as it gets.. Nicely done.
  14. 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
  15. 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??
  17. Congrats on the nice gobbler..
  18. 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!!
  19. How long was his beard, Tucker? It looks like is well over 10".. Nice bird, my friend..
  20. Try an Indian Creek choke and some Hevi-shot #6's or #7's.
  21. This is the bird that I shot on opening morning. (4/11/12). Shot him at 25 yards with a facefull of Nitro #7's from my BPS 10ga.
  22. Way to go, Tucker.. Nice turkey bird..Mike
  23. I shoot 3.5" Win. Hi-Vel. #6's out of all my Benelli's, when I shoot lead. It patterns great. The only way that you will know, with any gun, is to try each. They are all different. Buy a couple of boxes of each, and have some fun testing. It is the only surefire way to know what you have. It will also let you see what your POI is compared to your POA. This is absolutely crucial for turkey hunting. You must know where the gun shoots, and then determine if a sighting device is needed..The .650-.660 range of constriction is a good bet. Again, you may want to try it and see how it works for you. Hope this helps, some..Mike
  24. The 26" will probably group a tighter pattern. The velocity gain will be about 20 F.P.S. Either length will get the job done..Mike
