    I was wondering does anyone duck or goose hunt with this gun??Just curious does anyone own one of these shotguns and if so what do you think of them? I just bought one hoping to try it on some ducks this weekend. I have the Mossberg 500 20 gauge for rabbits and squirrels and love it

    You can. But your shoulder will hate you.

    Well does it kick more than a Remington 870 pump? It really kicks that bad?

    I bought a Model 500 in 1984. Tough reliable shotguns at a budget price! Mine is loaned out to a friend for deer season. I meant to get it back to loan to another friend for duck season. The 500 did not bother me any worse then other pump shotguns on kicking. Now the 835 with 3.5 loads is a different story!

    Not any worse, but after a few days of shooting heavy duck loads, you feel it.

    Yes. If you buy the synthetic version, it is lighter and will kick like a mule. The wood versin is heavier, and won't be as bad. For a couple hundred bucks more, you can get a decent semi auto. Your shoulder will thank you.

    I've had two of them. Broke the first one goose hunting. The second one a friend gave to me after he took it apart and couldn't get it back together. I cannibalized the old one for parts on the other. They are not a bad gun but I much prefer my semi-autos. And amen to the the 835 comment. Got one of those too and will only turkey hunt with it.

    Because they don't kick like a pissed off mule.

    I'm curious as to why you would prefer a pump over a semi for anything?
