    What do you folks think of this gun specifically for Turkey?

    "The Stoeger P-350 pump shotgun is a no-nonsense, rugged and reliable hunting gun designed to fire any and all 12-gauge ammunition from field loads to 3-1/2" magnums. Whether its dove loads in September or steel shot in November, the Stoeger P-350 will digest them all without so much as a hiccup. And there’s even an 11 ounce recoil reducer that screws right onto the tail of the stock bolt to tame the kick of the heavy magnums.
    There are nine different models of the Stoeger P-350 to choose from – an 18-1/2" barreled home security model, the MAX-4™ HD camo gun for waterfowlers, a Timber™ HD for turkeys or the standard black synthetic for all around. In addition, every P-350 field gun comes with "FIVE" choke tubes, including an extra-full extended turkey choke, so no matter what your game the Stoeger P-350 has you covered."



    Would like your thoughts folks, I may be able to get one for around $200.00 in the synthetic black!

    I know nothing about them, but like Jack said that's a good price.

    I don't like to buy guns for specific uses. However, as JackJr. & GoGop have stated, for $200 I don't think that you'd go wrong with this one.

    I'm not so sure that it's all that far off from the Nova, beanpile. At least it looks similar and has similar stats. Good price.

    Nicholas, where are you finding that deal? Do you mind sharing?

    Thanks for the info. folks. I have a nephew in CA/State, that is into SASS that won it and does not hunt, so I offered him the 2 bills for it. I just thought it was a great deal so I offered it to him.

    Yikes, I have found nothing but bad reports on this gun on several forums. Too bad, it pretty much boils down to a single shot because the gun has a history of jamming and not cycling subsequent rounds, regardsless of round choice. I will search further. Anyone here with actual experience with this specific firearm?

    I'll ask a friend of mine on another site. He knows guns real well, and he doesn't ever hesitate to say what's on his mind.

    I'll let you know.

    I thought I'd have to edit all kinds of nastiness out of the dude's reply, but he simply put;


    "Sucks."

    hey if you get a chance ask your dude what he thinks of the benelli nova.
    i am courois since they seem to be close to the same gun in the pics any way if he has the same opinion of them both.


    just trying to get a feel for how his gun rankings work you know its kinds like looking at playboy the best pages to me may not be the same ones he likes you know:)

    its not as bad if you tighten it up some its still there i don't feel its near as much of an issue as some others do. i mean you have to bump it just right to get it to make noise in the woods its not as if you sit there making it rattle while your in the process of calling a bird.

    but yes right out of the box its pretty loose. it was made that way for the duck hunters i was told so the mud and gunk of some duck hunters would cause problem honestly though i really don't know of any duck hunters that shove there gun in the mud.
