at the Valley Waterfowl dinner in Lodi last Saturday. A Remington 887 Camo.

It's pretty sick. Being a polymer it's very light and might supplant my benelli on some trips It was the adult door prize and the last thing they raffled off. We had already stood up to leave when they called her name. I went down to Outdoor Sportsmen today to start the DROS. I even bought some #4 buck (among other ammo) in honor of Marcelo5150.

She won a Savage 93R17 2 years ago at the same dinner.


Great job honey!

What does that mean???

It's her gun, not your's.

Maybe it's a sign she should be out shootin/hunting with you.

My wife won an AR15 flat top at the friends of NRA dinner last weekend. What it is with the women winning guns this month

It's a "SetUp" to get more girls/Ladies into shooting :) Congrats to your wife, the guns NOT yours :) but you can USE or Borrow to own it :)

Remington did that on purpose from what I've read.

they claim this:

The most durable and reliable shotgun ever built

Isn't that something that has to be earned first? How do they know this if it is still a new product? I hate exaggerated claims, although if i had won it i would gladly accept it. :D


congrats lewdogg21's wife. :)

I'm hoping. Then it would be a whole lot EASIER to justify guided elk hunts, multiple duck clubs, etc.

^EXCELLENT THINKING!!!

Hey! Once you get that 887 home let me know what you think of it. I really want to get one to use strictly as a duck gun. So I'm recruting you to be my Field Test Dummy!
