Remington’s new turkey gun:

Its solid, dependable action makes it America’s favorite, and our continual upgrades, including this year’s new ShurShotâ„¢ ambidextrous pistol-grip stock, make it the most lethal, well-rounded family of pump shotguns around. Along with continually evolving designs, this shotgun’s superiority is a matter of rugged dependability, great pointing characteristics and versatility. In fact, the Model 870â„¢ has been the standard for slide-action performance for more than 50 years. Our new Model 870 express® ShurShotâ„¢ Synthetic Turkey is optimized for the turkey woods with the revolutionary ShurShotâ„¢ synthetic pistol-grip stock.

It’s contoured to accommodate both right- and left-handed shooters, while offering an incredibly steady-aiming platform that handles like lightning and aids in lessening felt recoil. This shotgun’s shorter 21″ barrel adds to its superb maneuverability, and the Turkey Extra Full Remâ„¢ Choke channels maximum payload to the sweet spot. The receiver is drilled and tapped, so adding optics is a cinch. Mossy Oak® Obsessionâ„¢ coverage on the stock and fore-end keep you concealed.

    You made a number of good points there. I did a search on the issue and found the majority of folks will agree with your blog.
