    Indiana.
    BTW, my first dove hunt I used an 870 Special Field 20.
    Was new to bird blasting so did poorly the first day.
    2nd time out was better and by the 3rd figured out the gun was fast enough, no need to rush it.
    Had to steer it but be careful to not oversteer.

    Figure the SKB "could" be used for dove, but more of a bunny and grouse popper.

    It is priced at what a little 870 Special Field 20 goes for these days LOL.

    The shop got an A5 20 too. The ol lady thought it ugly as sin, said buy the SKB.
    Years ago I picked up an 870 Special Field that had been cut down. It had very good wood too.
    Was for her. Of course she then said she absolutely hated the straight stock.

    I kept it a while, thinking I'd get a new stock and keep for me. But somebody offered me a good chunk for it (for their kid).

      Straight stocks "usually" give the shooter more recoil, something that is bad for most folks.
      If I were to shoot my 20 gauge SKB 100 on doves I would use a 3/4 oz load. The only issue is would it create enough recoil to reset the inertia trigger for the second shot.
