    4850CDC2-0D10-4211-BE0A-E4049BEB5049.jpeg Well when I was in the pawn shop the other day gettin that 870 I saw they had a Mossberg maverick in there and was like brand new. So I swung by there today and picked it up for 160 bucks out the door. My 535 crapped out on me and I had a Indian creek choke for it so the choke would fit this gun so I said what the hell let’s give it a try. Slipped that choke in there a lil bit ago and WOW!!! I’ll be packin’ the Maverick this weekend. 40 yards was completely stupid on paper. Kicked like a mule but what 3 inch don’t? Those Indian creek tubes are the real deal. Iv used them for about five or six years now and don’t see change in sight for me.

    Looks like it got a good pattern. Bought a maverick a few years ago for my daughter to hunt with. She’s only took it out a couple times.

    Got the 935 an knight tk2000 in the truck. Will decide when i leave the truck which to pack. They both will rock and roll. Tk2000 just has 1 shot but it shoots to kill on that 1 shot.

    Those are very interesting. I’d like to see how that setup works. I wouldn’t even know how to load it.

    Very easy. 80 to 100 grains of black powder,shot cup,shot,over shot wad, and pack with rod. Shoot a mix of 5s and 6s.

    That just intrigues me. Does it shoot a nice pattern?

    My very first gun (Xmas present) was a Mossy Maverick 88. It killed many a squirrel & rabbit! But back then (80’s) I think mine came only with a fixed full choke.

    My son has his Maverick here at my house. I have hunted with it a few times. They are good guns.
