Another option would be a Browning BPS. That's what I shot when I switched from Right to left. Great gun! I think I paid a little more than 300 but I bought it 13 years ago and still shoot it.

There are lefty 870's in Gander and Cabela's, but they are going for a tad more than that.

I've had my 870 WIngmaster lefty for 30 years - I love it. I just found a new 26 inch barrel with remchokes for it for 50 bucks - unbelievable.

if you buy the browning bps you don't have to worry if you are ever going to get rid of it. it is a good gun I have two. I have a auto that I mainly use now but I won't give up the bps's.

The BPS is a great gun in that it doesn't matter if you are left or right it works for either. They are more than $300 normally. They are usually in the 400-500 range depending what you get. But they are well worth it a browning has never let me down.

Another BPS/lefty here. I have a 12 and a 10. The 10 has been used and abused and never let me down.

I shoot a regular mossberg 835 ulti mag left handed without any problems. The main issue for me is the location of the safety for quick shots. I like the thumb safety. The shell ejecting across my feild of vision does not bother me at all. The main thing is getting a comfortable gun for you to shoot!

I've been shooting a BPS for what seems like forever. Bottom eject, top tang safety. John Browning did himself proud. I love mine.

Is it just me, or does this topic sound dirty?

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
