12 ga. Mossberg 935 semi-auto(good gun for the money), 3 inch Winchester Supreme 5's, Factory tube. Used to shoot a pump but all the what-ifs and backup shots caught up with me. Seems like everything that could go wrong would and at the worst times. Three mishaps that I remember well; 1. Rolled a gobbler, he gets up running, I run after him while ejecting shell and all the shells(2) fall out of my gun unknowingly, lucky I had a spare when I caught up to him. 2. Rolled a gobbler, he comes up flying right over my head, forget to eject, bird is too far by the time I do. 3. Finally get an old gobbler in range after hunting him for weeks, lying in leaves in prone position, forearm of pump has slid back and gun won't fire, tried safety again, getting frustrated and gobbler is watching me, jerked forearm shut, gobbler takes off flying, killed him with second shot. Everybody has their own needs and I need a semi-auto!
