Dakotajude13 ,

Episode 173.

It was awesome to hear that people still appreciate the 311s. I was handed down my Savage 311 .16ga from my grandfather. He hunted upland in Minnesota and Iowa from the 1960s till the 1990s. I’ve hunted birds with it from California to Kansas to Tennessee. It’s a brick but swings great and knocks down birds. It will be the gun that is handed down to my son.
