I am working on something special for Dr. Evil (the Gobbler that busted me) this off season.
Once I have it finished in the Lab I will provide pics.

Thompson Center Encore, 20 ga. 20" barrel with Tru Glo sights, synthetic fore/thumb hole butt stocks all in Real Tree Hardwoods camo, currently shooting Winchester 1 5/16 oz. # 5's. This is an awesome turkey killer out to 25 yds. Getting ready to try a different choke and some other loads hopefully to strech it out to 30-35 yds.

Here's the pic with a little extra eye candy.

I normally shoot whatever I've been shooting the most when the season comes in. This year however I decided to use a black 3" Benelli Vinci. It's just so light and shoots right where I aim it. I can also get 2-3 shots off, if needed, and keep a good sight picture because it has very little muzzle jump.

Thanks,
Clark

Currently, I have a Hevi-13 turkey choke in it. I've also had the SSX, a Wright's, a Pure Gold, a Strangler and a couple of others at different times. It seems to get along very well with the H-13 choke and patterns exceptionally well with it.

Thanks,
Clark

I shot my old Remington 1100 for years and loved it. My dad bought it when I was young and I hunted everything (dove, squirrel, deer, turkey) with it. Then about 10 -11 years ago my wife (then girlfriend) suprised me with a 3" Browning Gold and I have turkey hunted with it since. Up until this past spring I had shot the factory full, but switched to a Jelly Head. I have tried several loads. With 1100 I always shot the Winchester Hi-Velocity #4 and did for a while with the Browning. I think I am settled on Hevi-Shot #6. A little expensive, but I like the way they pattern.

I need all the help I can get when it comes to shooting!!! Operator Error. I have missed a few too many point blank standing still, then shoot them out of the air..... guess I just like to give them a sporting chance.
