Ended up going with the composite stocked 870 combo… Iron sites it is to start…

Made a bb trap target for the garage… Oldest shot probably 50 shots this afternoon… Last 10 all but one was in the 2” circle at 20 feet with iron sites… His confidence went through the roof which makes me think I made the right decision…

Thanks again for the input…

I agree with Oz lots of practice makes perfect. I have killed a lot of deer with my quail gun Rem. 1100 just shooting reg slugs through modified bird barrel. I did break down and buy a rifled barrel for it and it is a little more accurate. The problem with scopes are if the deer runs after you shoot are you going to be able to shoot him again with the scope can you find him in time through the scope especially if you already hit him or her and they are running. Can’t count how many deer I’ve see dropped at a dead run but then again I was brought up quail hunting since I was old enough to walk and if you can hit them on the fly a deer is a piece of cake. lol
