My daughter has renewed my interest in hunting so we took our firearm course in the fall and she got her card in time to go hunting with my father and got a 7 point whitetail buck on her first day. Last month I got her a Remington783. I also for myself got a 12 gauge Remington870 Express with interchangeable rifled or smooth barrels and an sks (for playtime). We just made it out to the range on Friday

Nice choices! The area I'm in is shotgun or muzzy only. The 870 my dad bought me for a boot camp graduation present is my preferred deer gun below the rifle line. The 500 marks a better HD. But that's just my humble opinion.

Thank you. It's been 20 years since I've been hunting. Do you use the lead slugs with a smooth barrel or sabot with the rifled?

For my Remington I like the deer slayer rifled barrel with Remington acu-tips. Very fast and long distance! With a shotty I never take a shot over 75 yards, IMHO, it's just not ethical, even though I know for a fact that round can be accurate out to 200+. Lightfield is another good sabot that I've had good luck with.

I haven't been hunting in about five years myself. The itch is always there, but every year, even if I buy tags and plan on hunting work seems to get in the way.

I do know old school guys that only use smooth bore and riffled slugs, but they limit their shots to 50-75 yards. On the other hand I know guys who use smokeless in muzzys and shoot at something 300 yards out. There's all kinds out there.

Good to see the youngins getting into hunting. Congrats to her on getting her first one. 20yrs! Dang ... you better post pics of your first kill next season. That's a neat fireball pic. That's gotta be tough to time it just right, or did you take a still shot from video?

Lots for sale. Saiga 12 was there-last minute forgot the food in the other wallet-smashing head against wall repeatedly-my brother was already there. Helicopter and tanks were there. Good weather,got a sunburn. Doing it again in October.
Looks like fun. Hmm, only a 12hr drive for me. How's the weather usually there in Oct? Do they let you shoot a round from the tank?

For Christmas Santa got my kid a BB gun. We had a pretty mild winter here so he got a few down range. I was a coach on both the pistol and rifle range... you'd think think I could have my own son an expert day one. Soft copper in my hands, already has glasses. Nope. As far as hunting... he loves Mother Nature! So he doesn't have the mindset yet.

Acquired an [email protected] Shield 9mm a year or more ago. Put a few rounds through it this weekend, nice little gun.

I have the same Smith & Wesson M&P shield but in .45 caliber. I have no complaints.
