Hey Beaglestace,If the shells were cheaper I'd use'm for dove hunting. Matter of fact I may take it out a couple of times next season just cause.Jay G. Shotgunworld.com
That's great that you got an older 1100 16ga in outstanding shape. I bet you plan on carrying that Franchi 48AL 28ga in the afternoon portion of your hunt. Especially if you are walking a hilly area and it's warm out.NANTAN2 said:I just purchased a Remington 1100 (old style..no vent rib, modified barrel). Bought it used from a guy. It's in great shape. Took it home last night and gave it a good cleaning. I'm planning on using it tomorrow for the opener of the Utah Grouse season. I purchase a box of Federal 1 1/8 oz 6 shot from Sportsman's yesterday for $10.50...I little pricey, but hey you only live once...why not enjoy yourself. Besides, I've always loved the odd ball stuff. That's why I also own a 28 gauge shotgun(Franchi semi-auto). I'll take both on the hunt tomorrow. Probably trade off about mid-day. Gave $400 for the shotgun. Anyone know what they're going for used?
Thanks, Nantan2 :wink:
