Default Bought a new gun today

At least I ordered it. Will be sent to my ffl. I bought it with the money Iíve been saving but not going anywhere. Iíve been sheltering in place for a month now and only used 1/2 tank of gas instead of 2 tanks a week.

So I ordered a new Tristar bronze semiauto 410 turkey gun. Going to put a red dot on it on a weaver pistol rail. It comes drilled & tapped.

Iíll be sending my 2 double410s for my friend to sell for me. As much as I love the doubles they are just not regulated as well as the single plane semiauto for the turkey woods.

What you guys been doing during out new martial law, socialist practice drill?

I love the look and feel of SXS shotguns but have never found one that I can wingshoot well with so I got rid of the ones I had and now use a semi-auto for trap and waterfowl. I haven't used it on turkeys yet but I'm going to pattern it in case I want to.


That's good that they let you use 410's for turkeys, we have a minimum 20 gauge requirement here which stinks if you're trying to get young kids into turkey hunting.

The .410 is only effective if using the newest tight shot, I forgot the name. It is about $5.00 per shell, but for turkey who cares!!! I wish I could afford to do that too. Nice acquisition.

TSS I think it's called. Tungsten Super Shot.

My grandson killed a nice gobbler during the spring youth turkey hunt here on the ranch this spring. I had given him a savage turkey single shot turkey model using TSS #9s. One shot at 45 yards. Bird was dead right there. That federal TSS turkey shells are a little over $4.oo each at target sports. Free freight if you buy 10, 5 packs. That’s what I did.

I had him start out with Winchester 3” 6s and after sighting in and lots of practice with them I let him shoot further out to 50 yards. That gun and shell will kill turkeys at 50 yards. But you must shoot it more like a rifle, that why I put a red dot on it. He just puts the dot on the turkeys head and presses the trigger.

He used a benelli 20 gague before that but he was afraid of it. My SIL just about ruined him before I switched the grandson to the 410. A 3” 20 guage with 3” mag turkey loads will make a kid lose interest in hunting. You’ve got to give them something to shoot that will kill the game and that he’s not afraid of.

So I’ve got him hunting deer with a AR 15 and turkey with the 410. He killed two deer last fall and two turkey, one fall and one spring.

I totally agree. When my daughter was young I tried to get her into turkey hunting but because of the foolish 20 gauge minimum law here she couldn't handle the recoil.

Actually I bought it from a old friend and fellow missionary from my Alaska days. Itís a new in box gun, never fired. He has its twin in 28 gauge which I may buy also. But havenít commited to the 28gauge yet. Yes Iíll send him the check along with a couple of guns I want to sell. He will sell them for me. He and I have bought a lot of guns together. And traded quite a few too.

Things might work out better for you Richard, if you were not so difficult to deal with. Truth is itís not worth all your jabs and insults to buy something from you. You generally have the attitude that if a person just inquired about a gun you have and then decides not to buy it itís a waste of your time. Not a good attitude for someone trying to make a sale.
