What Santa May Bring Early Next Year.
#1: The Mossberg 500® PERSUADER®/CRUISER® - 6 SHOT. 18" barrel which is technically petite.
#2: The Mossberg 500® BANTAM™ PUMP-ACTION. Which I am slightly less thrilled about because I can't get it in black stock. So it's heavier. It comes in petite which is why I like it.
#3 The Remington 870 Express Super Magnum Synthetic. A little longer than I want with a 26" barrel.
What I would really like, is the Sigarms .30-06 that I shot two years ago at the blogger outing at McMiller's. I haven't been able to get in touch with Chris, who has since closed the Spotted Horse blog. He had the model written on the blog. It was a fabulous gun... extremely precise. Kind of painful but I could hit just about any area on the target within one inch. Pretty good for my first time with the big gun.
For my first hunting gun, I'm probably better off with the shotgun. Plus, I know this gun does not make my butt look fat.
If anyone has any shotgun recommendations let me know. One very important thing for me is to find the gun in a smaller model, but still 12 gauge. I need a barrel length less than 26 inches. As many of my readers know, I can't post during the day, so please don't be offended if I don't reply immediately.
And if you got any deer this weekend, post a link so we can see!
