    Got this 20 ga Remington G3 in a trade deal with Coot Shooter a few weeks ago. Had every intention of selling it as I'm just not that big on Remington 1100's. Grew up with one, then got a LH version, then moved on. Well first box of shells at the skeet range it lost its cool grip cap(I see Remington hasn't figured out how to keep that on either after all these years). Found it after 20 min of looking. It'll stay in the drawer. Then I had to send my new Versa Max back to Remington(see my other thread). Well this left me without a hunting gun, so I gave the 20 a chance. Had lots of 3in ammo, Heavy shot, Heavy Steel, Tungsten Matrix. Took it out 3 different times and limited each time. The first two outings were jump shooting and shots were limited to about 25 yards. This last time only a couple came into the decoys and I pass shot the rest out to 40 yards. 9 shots, 12 shots and today 16 shots. I think this thing is gonna have to hang around for a while, at least till I run out of 20 ammo.

    Looks like it's a keeper. I wish I had some good duck spots like the ones you went to. Good job!

    What glue works? Remington can't seem to figure it out. Hate to lose that metal cap in the field.

    You should by all means dispose of this gun immediately. Continued usage may/will result in distrust of future attachments.

    Looks like you have a keeper on the 20 gauge 1100 (recommend epoxying the cap on the stock) and most definitely a good little duck hole. Good hunting!

    Took one of my old 10 GA's out today. 18 degrees with a 30 mph North wind. Good day to be alive hunting with a classic. Man I can't wait to be retired.

    Well, took the 20 out yesterday. Didn't know it was going to be it's last run. Got home and my neighbor had to have it. Oh well, got guns-a-plenty that need field time. Probably have to finish out the season with my RBL as I doubt I'll get my VersaMax back in time. One last pic from yesterday for the road.
