    I'm sure some of you use a .410 - just curious what ones you like.

    I went in the gun store a few months ago with the intent to buy a new Henry lever action .410 - just something to shoot starlings with around the place. It was like $700 bucks or something. While looking the gun counter guy said they had just gotten in a pump .410 on trade (Mossberg) and he had it for less than $300 bucks so I bought it.

    It sat in the safe until the 4th of July when brother in-laws and nephews all got together to shoot some clays so I took it along. I loved that thing - it was great. I didn't want to spend a lot on yet another caliber so I thought I'd look to see if there were any cheaper semi-auto's and found a couple:

    TriStar Viper G2
    Pointer Phenoma

    Any yea's or nay's?

    I looked at many makes and models and went with the Remington 1100. Not cheap at $1099 but by far the best handling. For me it was the right choice because it's now my main gun for everything from mourning doves to greenheads.

    870 Wingmaster. I don't hunt ducks with it.....but a .410 timber hunt would be fun.

    I just inherited a Winchester Model 42...I’m planning at least one duck hunt with it this season.

    The Tristar is a really fun gun. No complaints at about 6-7 boxes shot so far.

    My son's sensei has bought a couple of the Tristars as seems to really like them. Not top of the line but a pretty good value.

    Next on my gun wish list is a Remington 1100 - 410. I think the extra money for quality is worth it over the Turkish gun.

    I stumbled upon this Browning model 42 last summer. I paid to much but its mine and I love it. 20191030_163817.jpg

    I read that John Olin hunted the flooded timber around Stuttgart with a .410. He also always reserved room #410 at the hotel in Stuttgart. However, I doubt he used an 870...but who knows.

    Cool gun. I like your boat. Kick arse machinery. But what about the silver color and hunting? Interesting registration number. You are number 4 in your state. How many boats are registered in Utah, I wonder. Got any more photos of your boat? (pant, pant,pant :h)
