I took my Remington version (SP-10 I think) on a goose and duck hunt about 13 months ago. Me, my girlfriend, her daughter and son in law. All rule following folks, well maybe not the daughter, heard a couple stories
The guide had explained that nobody shoots unless he says so.
First day we get ice broken and decoys out, layout blinds set up, everything and everybody in them. Then the guide and I drive the trucks back a half mile or so. I left my 10 gauge, unloaded of course, in the blind. So the guide is screwing around with his new lab pup at the truck and I'm walking back quickly as its allready 10 minutes past legal shooting light and the sky is well lit..... so I'm almost back when there is suddenly a flurry of flapping and honking as at least a thousand geese launch off the back side of the pond and begin flying right over the blinds! So I'm running and yelling "shoot! Shoot!! SHOOT!!! The girlfriend sits up and says " "NO!!! The guide did not say to shoot yet." I get to my gun, shove one shell in just as the last of the flock is clearing the blinds. BOOM, two geese fall from the sky. I look at my 3 companions and ask, why didn't you shoot? The daughter says "I was just dumbfounded and couldn't believe what was happening and just kind of froze." The son in law says "She said not to!" And she is chewing me out and saying how the guide did NOT say it was ok. I look back at the guide who has picked up my two geese and is giving me a big fist pump. She asked "what's he doing?" I replied "shaking his fist at me
" "SEE THERE, YOUR IN TROUBLE NOW! He gets back, throws the geese down, give me a high 5, looks at them and asks why they didn't shoot? So after a bit of arguing, the girlfriend explained that they where right over their heads and "what happens to the BB's that miss a goose? I simply replied "they continue on and kill another goose
The second day the 10 gauge started giving me feeding issues after the first shot, essentially making it a single shot. My girlfriend was shooting a 12 gauge but we would all shoot 3 times, then she would get one shot off... (her daughter was a duck murdering machine!) So she says she will trade with me as she's only getting one shot anyway. She handled that thing fine and started getting some hits.
So yea, a 3 1/2" 10 gauge is one hell of a waterfowl gun!
