    How many of my fellow hunters have added a new gun to their collection during the off-season? I have added 2 so far.....Bob

    Bob,
    I added a new .300 Winchester Mag this offseason. Been out shooting it already and I can tell why people told me they liked them. Already in love with the gun. One of my close friends fathers is a gun collector and recently bought a Barret .50 cal. That thing is just massive and packs an incredible punch. It's what the military is giving their advanced snipers in Iraq. It weighs 37 pounds and makes me wonder how anyone could carry it around the hot desert all day. my hat's off to anyone who does

    I didn't add any this past off-season, but I've added one for each of the last 2 years before that though.  Does that count?

    Pork and Beans, Sure does tell us about them. I got 2 exactly alike. I bought a new Traditions by Fausti O/U. it is a 20 gauge and it is a beautiful gun. I got last spring and have shot Trap with it a few times and did well with it. A buddy of mine came out from North Dakota and he shot it on Trap. He got a 23 the best he has shot in many a moon. So I just went and got another one Monday this week as a back-up, I shot Trap with it on Tuesday and did fair. But it was me and not the gun. I just could not get my head into the game. I named the 1st one "Wanda", meaning wonderful gun. The second I named "Lucky13", meaning I got it on the 13th.....Bob

    Specs. 14 1/4 LOP, weight 6 1/4 pounds, Choke Tubes, 28 inch barrels.

    Picked up a Ruger GP 100 revolver (.357) for company firearms training and ordered a Glock 27 (sub compact) as a CCW. Just a few $$ left on layaway for my Remington 700 Sendero in 7mm Ultra Mag.

    That ultra mag is a beast I've shot a couple different caliber and they all rock but the 7mm is the best flat shootin gun around 2" high at 200yds dead on still at 600. TB you should buy a golf cart to carry it for you.

    Holy Shmoly TB, that's some serious iron your pickin' up.  I'm not very familiar with all of them, but if they're anything like the shotguns you've been able to aquire they're great stuff.

    I picked up a used Remington 870, 20ga for my son last year as a first hunting gun.  It is in absolute mint condition but I'm considering bending the barrel so the bugger doesn't keep smoking me at the sporting clays course.  I can only imagine what he's going to do to me this year in the field.

    The year before that I picked up a used Beretta, 12ga, Urika that is a DU version.  Again it is in mint condition and although it has some fancy engraving on the sides I don't feel bad about bouncing it around in the field because of what I payed for it.  I actually bought it intending to try waterfowling.  Hopefully, I'll find someone to go duck hunting with so I can give that a whirl.

    Pork, no matter if  you're getting taken to the woodshed by Pork Jr., I know that is one young man you don't mind getting beaten by on the clays course or in the field. Got to be gratifying for sure!

    Hillbilly, you are correct-a-mundo about needing a caddy for that hunk of steel. Considering putting a winch on top of my deer stand to haul that monster up! I shot my buddy's .338 Winchester and on the 3rd shot, the dang right lens of my shooting glasses fell right out of the frame!!

    A dang box of bullets for that 7mm Ultra Mag runs about $48. I won't be using that pig to plink at tin cans with!

    That's why I got rid of my 375 h&h cost to much to shoot. But I did shoot a deer with it last year.

    This off season I decided to try a new gun and try out the Tri-star. I ended up getting an auto 20 ga! Plus, I'm thinking about getting a fausti field hunter 2.

    Capt. Hook CDNN has some pretty good buys on Fausti Field II right now. You do need a FFL to ship too.....Bob

    Hello all, long-time reader here, first post on the forum. I am looking (drooling) at the new Browning Silver Hunter, 12 ga. Have seen them on sale in my area for about $850. Have held it at the store, almost didn't give it back. Has anyone shot a Silver, or seen them on sale for less?

    Love the new look of the website. Am getting back into pheasant hunting the past few years. My pooch, Roscoe, is 2 now, and is ready to get it on this fall. Looking at joining a local club this year, maybe Pheasants on the Ledge or Wild Wings.

    Any advice on the new shotgun would be much appreciated.

    Capt, how has the Tri-Star been for you?
    Jim, welcome to the site. I'm not familiar with the new Browning. Can you tell me anything more or post a link.

    I read somewhere the Browning Silver was initially intended for European distribution only. There were just a couple of differences between this and the Browning Gold, one of which being the Speed Loader system..??

    But, like I said, I have held it and like it alot. Guess the only thing left is to buy it, right??

    I picked up a Savage .300 Win mag, and a H&R ultra slugster in 20 ga. for some deer hunting this fall. Thinking about a PSE crossbow for the fall turkey season here in Indiana. Just had my S&W .460 scoped, bought it last year.

    Welcome Bo. All good choices. Last night on the Versus Channel I watched larry Weishuhn take a couple of nice 10 pointers with that same H&R in 20 gauge. I actually saw him miss the same deer twice and finally get it on the 3rd try. He was shucking that thing open in a hurry and breathing hard.

    I purchased a new Kimber Montana in .300WSM and put a Meopta 3-10x50 on it. I'm shooting 150grain Winchester XP3's in it this fall on whitetail and mulies.
