I’ve used this Ruger Red Label for years. It kinda fits my maintenance program. Don’t worry about the shiny stainless too much because I’m usually in a good A frame blind or have it tucked in with me in my layout blind.

That was going to be my recommendation and have it camo dipped.

I used a 12 gauge Ruger Red Label for a while. I liked the fit of the gun, but after shoot ducks with it and 3" shells and the safety going one after the first shot almost every time, I sent it down the road. Never had any issues with 2 3/4". I made sure it wasn't me pushing it on.

One of my guide friends is shooting a tristar hunter. He has over 3000 rounds thru it with out a single issue. I shot a few geese with it last season and it felt really good and they’re only 700 bucks

I’ve got a Ruger stainless that I had dipped in a wetlands pattern. It’s kinda a club to be honest but it is indestructible so I take it out when it’s likely to get abused

primary Gun is a vintage Winchester 101 that I had Briley lengthen the forcing cones. Tweak the trigger and and thin wall extended chokes. With a 30 inch barrel it’s pretty much perfect. I miss the third shot a machine offers some days. But my bird totals match everyone else’s. So I’ll stay with it

I shoot a Winchester 101. 30inch barrels 3 inch chambers. Had briley put thin walls in it and clean the trigger up. I seem to tag as many birds as the guys shooting machines and 3.5 inc chambers. Course I don’t believe in busting away and wounding hi birds

not sure it matters as long as you shoot it well. I have used a 682, Citori, Perazzi. I liked the earlier idea of an old 101... find something that you feel comfortable with and have fun.
