I hate to disappoint but I'm talking about Apex. I've had so many screen shots of destroyed guns sent to me that I wouldn't shoot Apex if they gave them to me. Each their own. Yall like 'em, keep shooting 'em.

I picked up a used 20ga Franchi just for turkey, it did very well. Then I found the 410. So I have a 12, 20 and 410 setups for turkey!! Lol. overkill. But my Canadian buddies might come down this year, and they won't have to bring a gun. Make their travel much easier!

Like a lot of y’all, been using a 20 gauge for almost 20 years and love it. Benelli M1 Super 90 and have killed a ton of ‘em with it. Not sure I could go back to a 12 gauge.

My son uses a 20 ga. Benelli Montefeltro with a Carlson choke shooting 3" longbeards. Can thump them hard out to about 40 yards.

Started downsize from 12 to 20 gauge about 5 years ago. My older son stopped using his 500 mossberg youth model. I started experimenting with it,adding long recoil pad,adding camo tape,fast fire 2 optics,and came across the pistol grip stock on internet. 20" barrel it's perfect for long hill jaunts on public land. With TSS it's good out to 50yards.

View attachment 96980 Here’s a little Remington 20ga I’m building. Just got done with the camo and polishing the barrel. Waiting for the Burris ff3 to come in for it and we’ll see what she does
Thats a super nice gun, i traded some lights and a little money, got a 870 20 youth im gonna try this year, it has camo stock and forearm, but nothing compared to yours. I love those panels on the stock and forearm, i put a synthetic stock on my 700 with those on it. I have lost, some of the feelings in my fingers, still have some, but seems like i can feel that rubber real well. Sweet set up you got there.
