Gun Question

7 posts in this topic

I need a different gun and fast for the upcoming early goose and subsequent duck season. There is a gun shop next to my house that has a Bakail...or something like that...12 gauge 30inch barrel auto. Its some russian made thingy...looks nice...is pretty light. Anyone know anything about this gun, anyone shot it? Otherwise I'll probably just buy a new benelli nova pump...there about the same price.

Yea remington bought them out and raised the price about 150 bucks. I dont think they changed anything on it though. I bought mine from capras before remington bought them out and paid only $250.

I have a beretta AL390. love the gun, I shoot trap, pheasants and geese with it. However, I'm starting to think about adding a nova to my gun lineup. I've become attached to my beretta as a trap and pheasant gun and all the mud and dirt from goose hunting takes its toll. I use a pump for deer, I love the reliability of knowing that its not going to jam no matter what kind of weather or crap I send throug it. So far the beretta has never let down, but the wear and tear is starting to show. Nothing worse than shooting a goose and aiming at the next, and seeing a jam. My browning was notorious for that.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
