Whats your thoughts of the new Remington 887 Nitro Mag Pump For a waterfowl gun?

I mostly field hunt and when I am near water hunting, I am never out on a boat shooting...

I tend to stay back and in the flyway as they leave and head back to the ponds ....

I Mostly goose hunt,cheap dreamweaver (http://www.ellamour.com) Only taken 2 mallards and I'ld rather goose hunt myself.

I have been shooting 2 3/4" #BB and 2 3/4" #2's and doin' okay.

Just want a Newer model gun that can chamber 2 3/4'- 3 " or even 3 1/2" .....But I am not really into 3 1/2" loads...

My wife won one at a dinner in the spring. Seems like a great gun but I haven't shot it yet since I have a Benelli M1S90 that I've shot for years.

It's a good gun, if you don't plan on shooting the 3.5's you have extra weight to lug around.

I don't like the way they feel in my hands, but i say the same thing about the Benelli Nova.

I also have some concern about water getting under the plastic covering. I imagine Remington Imagineers thought about that, but who knows.

Don't listen to this guy. I have proof his only duck hunting is Nintendo duck hunt and COD BO. :p

Barbarossa - If you have any good hunt pics share em either here or aE. I haven't killed really anything worth sharing yet.

Looks kinda cheesy to me, but for the money and it can handle 3 1/2 loads I might even look in to it for a turkey/goose gun.
Also if you're knocking down geese with 2 3/4" shells either they're really close or you're just a bad ***

Is that the real bulky plastic model if it is oh yeah it is ugly and I would not shoot that if it was free.

Shoot it ----If it is free you can always give it to me. You know I can always use another firearm. Got room in the new safe.
