    Mossberg smooth bores were the choice around her for deer back before rifled barrels.
    KIlled many a deer with mine.
    24" smooth bore. 2 3/4" Winchester foster slugs (all bought from same lot #).
    The gun should shoot pretty decent, at least good enough for 100 yard stuff (maybe better).
    The issue is shooting a gun that kicks that hard well.
    Many get to flinching.

    Shot my first gun deer with one, 77 yards over 30 yrs ago.

    Would not feel handicapped if I had that old gun now.
