Turkey guns...

What are you favorites? I just picked up an 870, figured for the price it's the most versatile/reliable gun I could think of.

Anybody have ideas on how to camoflauge it? I almost went with a mossgerg 835 camo'd up for $385.00 (auto-loader), but it was to heavy to walk pheasant fields with too.

Camoing up a gun is pretty easy. If you want to drop some coin, you can have someone DuraCoat or Ceracote it for you. If you just want to paint it, degrease the gun, rough up the shiny areas (if the bluing is high gloss, not necessary on the parkerized 870 Express), tape off or remove anything you don't want paint on, then hit it with some rustoleum or krylon camo paints.
I did it a couple weeks ago and it came out pretty well. Here's a link:
