Informal "Turkey Shoots" involved rimfire and centerfire rifles. Both my wife and I were involved with them and both shot a bedded, Remington 700 ADL in .22-250 Rem. I usually shot the limit in each match. Once, on a bet, the wife beat all of us, firing one shot at a turkey shoot match that was a perfect dead-center shot from prone at 100 yards. It's the only time she ever fired in competition of any kind. She liked shooting the .22 Ruger Bearcat handgun I bought for her before we were married...for security at her small beauty shop, (mainly because she worked late and alone). She shot it better than I could, mostly because of the small grips. For skeet and bird hunting, I had a 12 Gauge Remington semi-auto and a 20 gauge as well. Today, I mainly use an O/U 20 gauge. .
