Hey guys, I'm a long time lurker to this forum and have received TONS of great advice. I am not new to hunting in particular, but new to turkey hunting. Which of these would be the preferred turkey gun?

Browning A5 - 12ga that shoots 2 3/4" shells
or
Yildiz O/U 20ga that shoots 3" shells

Thanks in advance!

I hunt with a TK2000 Black powder gun from Knight. 31/2" shot wad. Knocks them deader than a door nail. No wrestling match after shooting them with this thing. Good luck. Fall is my favorite Turkey hunting.

What kind of choke are you using with the browning. Need a good choke to hold a tight pattern for longer shots.

Thanks for the help, guys. The Browning has a Poly-Choke on it. I'll be using the Xtra-Full.
