Stevens 12 ga. single shot hammer model I've been using since 1958.  Lots of birds with this gun.

My main Turkey gun is my early 80's 12ga 870 wingmaster magnum. 26in vent. rib. stock full choke barrel Glow bead on the front Had rattle canned it for years but decided to wrap it in a original bottomland vinyl wrap from Mossy Oak 5 years ago. It has and will continue to break necks out to 38-40 yards until the end of my days
I ain't got to hear 'em gobble to know he is there.

My go-to 870 super mag is wood stocked with just a bead, been around the block on turkey guns the last decade but came back to the 870 mite throw the saddle mount on it but time will tell.

Maybe this might be considered Old School. I just picked up this Original Bottomland Remington 870. Been trying to close the deal on this and finally did. Great shape, original bottomland sling. I love this gun. It patterns great....

Old School as in wood/blued metal, bead site.

I took my dads old remington model 11-A (not sure what year it was made)and used 2&3/4 ounce TSS out of it. Shot it twice so far once at pattern board and shot a nice gobbler with it. My only concern with that model would be breaking the  forearm stock so Im planning on getting a new recoil spring for it.

I got a Remington 1100 2 3/4 inch 12 gauge. Long barrel sucker with a fixed full choke. Bead sight, no sling. Carry it every year. Inherited it from my late Grandpa. I have other turkey guns but feel close to him when I pack it so it's always the one I use.

Have one of those that belonged to my Dad. He used to hunt with a Mod fixed choke barrel. I had Tru choke threads put in the barrel, Parkerized the metal and wrinkle/airbrush painted the stocks. Hastings .655/.665 and lead 5’s, 6’s.

Had 2 coming in from different directions and didn't want to risk hand motion from the wingbone at the very end, so used some natural voice calling.

Just wasn't sure how to represent that (like guys put diaphragm calls in the pics) so I put my dentures in there with the wingbone.
