2019 Shotgun Showcase

 

 

By Rachel Hoveland

A warm day with peeks of sun dappling through the leaves. Minnesota Horse & Hunt Club's challenging sporting clays course wandering its way through woodlands, uplands and wetlands. A couple cases of Federal ammunition waiting at each station. More than 40 shooters of all shapes, sizes and experience levels with itchy trigger fingers, ready to get their hands the latest and greatest shotguns and find that one (well, maybe more) new shotgun they just have to have for the uplands this fall.

Welcome to Pheasants Forever's Shotgun Showcase, 2019 edition!

Oh, we made everybody "work" a little too--testing, evaluating, and summarizing their shotgun thoughts for you. Following are the resulting reviews of our top 10 picks. Whether you're in the market for your first shotgun, looking to switch things up, shopping for someone else or just feeling the need to add another shotgun to your gunsafe before hunting seasons kick off, 2019's Pheasants Forever Shotgun Showcase will start you down the road to upland joy.
