No worries. Just a friendly conversation.

Not a gun for dangerous game but I really like my shotgun. Thought about buying a rifled barrel and removing the recoil pad to reduce LOP. It has the mercury recoil reducer in the stock and I can really go through rounds with it. Used it for snow geese and have shot a pile of 3.5" shells with it.

Would be interesting to have it set up for dangerous game. Bought a Winchester 37 for turkey this year so won't need it for that anymore.

I loved my Benelli 12 Gauge pump gun, just sold it because it never made it out of the closet anymore. Looked great and felt great, altho I am still partial to the old Remington 870 pump that I had for many years back in the day.

I run my fathers Rem 870 pump. 40+ years with 1000+ shells each year. Works like new.

The second one is the most interesting. I know the place it happened.

I just did a practice spray a few weeks back in windy conditions as I’ve never practiced like that.
Spray made it about 10ft, to be expected I guess
Probaby end up getting as much spray as a bear in windy condtions, wont need pepper on your dinner that night!

I read today that the man that was killed up here in Alaska in Hope was found with an empty can of bear spray. I’ve never carried spray or tried it but it’s a one shot deal isn’t it?
