Yeah Ive been lookin at those. Im really tryin to get one with camo AND at least 26 inches on the barrel. There IS one that JUST got put up that is all black. It has a 26 inch barrel but it has some very stylish engravings on the side that I like.

After owning an 835 Mossberg, would never buy another one. The dang things have such an overbore that you might as well over bore a 20 ga to 10ga diameter if your going to throw 1 9/16oz of shot through em. On the other hand my 10ga has little felt recoil and can fling steel as fast as you can pull the trigger and it likes big shot.

Both my Browning gold hunter 10ga and my remington SP-10 have 26" tubes on them. This helps with handling. The 10ga is a specialty gun. It does not shoot any further than a 410. What it does do is handle large shot extremely well. In addition it handles large payloads better than a 12ga. This gives more even denser patterns with shot sizes #2 and larger. It does have a little more reach in the hands of someone that knows how to use one, only because it patterns big shot well!!!!

YEAH RIGHT>>ImageImageImage
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

The Ithca's are fixed choke shotguns so to have some leaway with chokes you would have to have something installed. The Ithca's are very simular to the remington SP-10 in which remington bought the manufacturing rights for the ithca gun. The browning stalker would be a fair deal. The O/U is also fixed choke so you would not have too much choice but to use full full...in that gun....But the prices are reasonable.

Owning a 10ga is for those of us that want ultimate performance in big heavy birds such as canadian geese. I have owned 2 for over 10 years and use them as "specialty" guns. I discovered that having interchangable chokes and developing good solid load/choke combo's make the 10ga a very effective late season heavy bird gun. I choose to use 26" barrels on my 10ga guns as the 30" barrels were cumbersome to use in pits and blinds. This does not effect the performance when using 10ga loads. My choke constrictions that work the best for me are aftermarket hastings as most manufactures of 10ga guns have decided that tight chokes are what shooters of 10ga guns want. I have discovered that more open chokes provide and incredible performance factor when using a 10ga. Remember a 10ga will not majically knock down 80 yard ducks and geese. What it does do is provide excellent patterns with large shot and handles that shot with extreme effeciency. For my duck hunting my 3" 12ga guns are the rave. For geese on public property where others like to shoot at decoying geese over your decoys it provides 45-50 yard effectives unmatched by other waterfowl guns. Using a 10ga takes some time and practice as they are heavy, and bulky. Using a 10ga in a layout blind is a chore on to its own. Once you have gotten used to the massiveness of a 10ga however, it is the go to gun in tough waterfowling conditions.
Good luck with the purchase!!
