If I can find some turkey loads for it under $20.00 . Anyone use a 10 gauge for turkey hunting here ? Thinking of buying a used single shot break open American Arms 10 gauge , price is right and its been modified to accept choke tubes and has recoil pad and sling added for around a $100.00 . Going out scouting the next few days ; season starts Monday here in Missouri.

Why not save the pain and money and shoot a 12 gauge? Or a 20? They both will kill a turkey perfectly fine

$100 for a gun you can turkey hunt with sounds good. But wondering why you would want to buy cheap shells for turkeys? Don't get many shots, and you work hard and spend a lot of money (usually) to get to the point where you can pull the trigger. The ammo makes a bigger difference in performance than the gun does....

For turkeys I use a Remington SP-10 and I find it far more pleasurable to shoot than any 12 guage with turkey loads. A 20 guage will certainly work just fine if the bird is close enough and you have a decent shot. Not everyone can afford to pay the expensive cost to shoot tungsten and for those of us that can't, the 10 guage is hard to beat.
Remember to spay and nueter your democrats.

I also shoot an SP10 for turkey and like he said , it really is a pleasure to shoot.IMO you can't beat a10g. Like said above why not give yourself the best advantage you can when it's time to pull the trigger after spending so much time and money preparing for it..
