Q) What gun would you recommend for duck hunting from a kayak?
A) For kayak hunting, where a short-barreled low-recoil semi-auto is needed, I don’t think you could go wrong with Beretta’s A-400 Xtreme in

Q) What are the most popular accessories for guns you sell to waterfowlers?
A) Most waterfowlers find themselves hauling a ton of gear with them when going to the field, and having your shotgun hung on your shoulder via a gun-sling frees up a hand to tote something else. Avery has two slings on the market, the Finisher sling and the Power Hunter sling, designed with a soft and stretchable neoprene that keeps it gripping, but not digging into your shoulder. I’ve been very satisfied with the Power Hunter slings that … Read More »
