My new shotgun finally came in this afternoon! :signtripledogdare2wf: It's a Remington 870 Combo. Has both a 28" vent rib barrel & a 23" fully rifled slug barrel with cantilever scope mount. Came with a sling, a modified choke for the 28" barrel, choke wrench, trigger lock, a pack of RemOil wipes, & fiberoptic sights for the vent rib barrel. I'm planning on mounting a Bushnell Banner Dusk & Dawn 3-9x40 scope (model 71-3947) on it and eventually replacing the stock with a Hogue. Despite popular belief, it WILL become my 200-yard-capable slug gun! :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow: I also attached a pic of the Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker in .30-06 with a Leupold VX-III 3.5-10x40 that I picked up recently. I REALLY need to get out to the range! :roflmao3[1]:

Nice slug gun!! Have you ever thought about a KNOXX stock for it? I know guys that have them and they say it's like shooting a 20ga instead of a 12ga!! I would not be afraid to shoot 200 with a scope on that gun :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow: :signtripledogdare2wf:

Very nice! I also have the 870 and slug barrel for hunting deer in Delaware. I remember while hunting thinking about how i might actually shoot at one, finding myself 10 yard back from where i fired it laying on my sore arse.What do you plan on 200 yd with it?

What do you plan on 200 yd with it?

Mainly deer, coyotes, & bobcats. But maybe even a cougar or a bear if I get lucky enough to have one come in while I'm calling. I picked up 2 boxes of cheap Federal slugs to get me on paper and I'll be ordering a few boxes of Hornady SST's to do my fine tuning & hunting.

Oh please... You must have received a big sack of cash too because I've seen some of your toys! :harhar1[1]: Actually, I sold a shotgun, a rifle, & a pistol to help afford the new toys. I need to replace the pistol I sold but I'm going to hold off on that until my work schedule picks back up in a couple months.

Nice toys . I bet that you will have no problems getting that thing to hit at 200yds. Do you thing a slug might be a littls small for yotes :harhar1[1]:
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
