I have a pretty good collection of rifles, shotguns and pistols but I'd have to say as far as shotguns go I would choose my old J.C Higgens pump from Sears. Its about 45 y/o...My very first gun that my father gave me when I was 12. Still in great condition. I don't hunt much anymore. I do carry however, anyone else here?

I like the 380 for the summer as it is small enough to conceal but still packs a decent punch.

Hey guys I like the info. Well here is my two cents. I do a lot of hunting for diferent situations. I turkey hunt I waterfowl hunt, deer hunt and in MA you can only use a shotgun for deer no rifle season. However they do have a muzzleloader season that I just sarted to hunt. The reason I state all this info is although my love is bow hunting I do use my twelve gage often. It is a remington 870 and in my opinoin there is no better shotgun. It is a pump so I never have jams or stove pipes. it is the most versatile shotgun there is I use it for everything I have a slug barrell for deer and a bird barrell for turkey, pheasant and waterfowl. I have different chokes for different situations. I think its the best shotgun out there. And I do also carry I have a 380 semi auto its nice for concealment because it is compact. It might not have the punch of a 40 cal. but it will sure make it a bad day for the bad guy. Love hearing the input from you guys keep it comin. wally ;)

I use a 30/30 for deer hunting,and a 12 ga for the birds/turkey.
I had a sw 44 mag for years and wanted to try it hunting but just never got the chance.
I would like to get the sw 500mag just because it HUGH...LOL

I like the 870 for a shot gun . As for deer I have a 257 Roberts and a 30/30 . For a pistol I have a 9 MM to pack and a few GP 100 / 357 "s that are used for heavy target shooting and a few Ruger 22 "s for plinking . We have a nice range 120 yards right at my house . Later Bill

disclamer)i do not belive hurting any animal for no reason is very very wrong.

I like to hunt and target shoot very much , I hunt birds Ducks/Pheasents with a 12 GA FAUSTI over/under ( which i cut off 2" of the butt ) , for deer i'm stuck on state land most of the time so i use a 20 GA ULTRA SLUG HUNTER  Harrington & Richardson  Single shot  Youth model ( i like the shorter stock) , And i use a Winchester Model 1300 12GA (Which i also cut 2" off of the butt) to hunt Turkey with , my Win 1300 also has a rifled slug barrel . And i do hold a permit to carry a Pistol/firearm which i exercise offen. I like to call it my cold steel ins. .... ;)....And seeing in my case were if i get threatened i can not get away , i prefer to carry a big bore...... ;D..........
