    Well, finally got to go to the range:

    Weather was balmy 29 F, with mild winds.

    Got to try out my crossbow:

    Sad to admit my girlfriend was a better shot than me with the crossbow, but to be fair I was the one sighting it in as I went along, as well as aiming for the head.

    Also, got to try my Remington 870

    All in all, fun day, learned quite a bit.
     
  2. Cool pics. Sure beats sitting in front of the tube waiting to go to bed doesn't it? :)
     

  3. Looks like you had a good time, a little too cold for me though

    A tip-
    I used my barrel as a handwarmer :wink:
     

  5. Sure does :shock:


    Nice shootin by the way.
     
  6. Nice toys!! I like the 870, I have been thinking on getting one myself.

    Tell your girlfriend that I think she has pretty hair, I'm a sucker for redheads.

    I like the grouping with the shotgun! LOL
     
  7. For turkey hunting, that shotgun pattern is a bit spread out to make a clean kill shot... You did get pellets in the head, but not enough for comfort. Of course, if you're using a Modified or Improved cylinder choke tube, that's about as good as you're gonna get.

    Nice 870 there. That loks like a pretty open choke as Primal stated. Although for turkey, I would go with at least a full if not extra full choke for a tighter pattern at distance. Personally, I like to shoot skeet with a modified, and use an extra full for anything else. It is all about personal preference though.
     
  10. I shoot skeet and dove hunt with a modified, extra full choke for Turkey.
