    so...good enough predatory/feral animals?

    headin up near manistique for the weekend...

    should my 870 be adequate for any type of defense against any predatory or feral animal?

    16 ga. and i got solid slugs,varying sizes of birdshot,and hollow points,its a no brainer that ill keep the solid slugs loaded.

    also can get ahold of the mosin,but i dont know if jays will have any 7.62x54R,and i can only fire that 1/4 as fast as the 870 at very best.
    not a lawyer, dont take anything i say as legal advice.

    The 870 in 16g should be plenty enough.

    A shotgun is the most versital of weapons IMOP.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Haven't you heard? All these wimpy calibers, the animals out there just get up and shake it off like it never even happened.

    What ya'll need is the .825 Magnum: http://www.chuckhawks.com/825_magnum.htm

    the .825 could be described as a .44 Magnum on steroids--lots of steroids!

    from up here...

    The 870 will stop anything in Michigan..

    I have taken many Deer, bear and other animals with shot guns. Double 00 buck does a great job on anything as well, and slugs pretty much can stop anything including any animals driving cars...
