TriStar arms has released a shotgun specifically for turkey hunters. Made in Mossy Oak Break Up, and has a 3″ chamber and 24″ barrel. For a MSRP of $489, there are several upgrades that you get with this shotgun including a picatinny rail, ghost rings sights and pistol grip stock. While it is not a top of the line shotgun, it looks to be a great shotgun to get into shooting and getting out in the field. Searching for TriStar reviews, there are not a whole lot out there, but I was able to find some anecdotal information in several forums, all of which are positive. As a turkey hunter myself, look for a full review in the future.
