What turkey-specific features do you have on your turkey shotgun?

Guns, ammo, and more! What do you shoot, and why?

Hey Ben, The answer is all of these and more! I had my Browning BPS Dipped in camo from Gander Mountain,no more painting or tapeing on camo!! Red dot sight is awesome (see shooting southpaw).3 inch shells works best for me. Sling is mandatory. Choke is factory, tried a couple of others, but factory performed best. The barrel is short on this model and is great for both weight and manuevabilty! Can't wait for spring!

Steve, that is a real nice looking piece. nice to see old browned iron.
My first gun that I hunted rabbit, squirrel, pheasant, goose, duck and turkey with was an Enders Royal choked the same, full and fuller.  Killed many things with it. It now has a permanent place over my doorway where it is retired until I can get around to restocking it or fixing the shattered lumber that is on it.
I re-head spaced it about 12 years ago and the antique wood just didn't last like I had hoped it would.  Great to see the old guns getting used for what they were meant for.

Thank you Tinker.  There are several people out there that can duplicate your stock.  Their work is almost an exact copy.  Very little inletting to do, just corners they can't get into.
Steve, I love "smoked" turkey
