    I shot my best ever round 22 23 25 and a 23 with BudsterXT's spare 870 CT.

    My dilemma is do I just keep the gun and tell him Thanks or what. He seems

    to think it is his. Hell, he can't even shoot it that good. Ken U

    Good Shooting, Pops.

    See what happens when you put/keep your face on the stock.

    Stop messing with that adjustable recoil pad and put a factory pad on the stock of the 870 Comp that I gave you.

    I give you one of them, but you ain't getting both of them!!

    Man, I love them 870 Competitions!

    I picked up the wrong gun (Model 12) by accident at a shoot one time and ran the front 50 with it ... The owner walked up to me in between the second and third trap and handed me my gun and asked if he could have his back ... I almost cried as he walked away with my new found friend, and I proceeded to drop 5 on the 3 rd trap and 1 on the forth after getting my own gun back ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I few months ago I grabbed "my 870 comp" from the gun rack at Birmingham and went outside to shoot a round.

    I stopped to tie my laces and noticed "my 870 comp" was now ported. I am thinking What the Heck? I turned around and went back inside with a dumbfounded look on my face.

    It so happenned that a fine old gentleman also had one, and I grabbed his by mistake, I just grabbed the first comp that I saw in the rack.

    I am used to seeing two comps in the gun rack but they are usually both mine.

    I got a little ribbing from the guys that day!

    The best way to ruin a perfectly good gun is to buy it!

    keep working for me. As long as owner stays away anyway!!Ken U

    My dad has his own 870 Competition, he just happenned to have been using one of mine.

    The guns are exactly the same.

    He justs wants someone else to tell him to keep my gun!!

    I shot it again Monday night, no 25's also missed the money bird lost $2.50 on it.
    He can have the damn gun back. It has to be the gun's fault. I only wish it was

    so. Still had a lot of fun. We had 5 young shooters on line at 1 time. It was

    good to see. 10 yrs to I think 15 yrs old and the youngest is something to watch. He has hit 20 and is in the high teens most of the time. They practice

    good gun safety and are a joy to watch! Ken U
