This is my gun

My shotgun of choice for the upland bird trip is my Remington 870 Synthetic with a 28" barrel. The gun has a modified choke and shoots 2 3/4" to 3" 12-gauge shells with capacity for four in the magazine and one in the chamber. Hunting limits the capacity to two in the magazine and one in the chamber so I had to install a magazine plug prior to the hunt.

I've fired a little more than 500 rounds through it in the past three weeks and have had exactly one misfire which was caused by a bad round. I hope to put plenty more rounds through it in the near future while I continue to develop the muscle memory that will make next year's hunt even more successful than this one.

I don't have precise numbers on what we brought home but I can tell you that I've got a freezer absolutely full of birds.

Thanks for reading,
