When rifle season comes in a slug gun is all i use. If your looking into buying a slug gun there is a ton of options. I hunt in Mecklenburg Co. which doesn't allow rifles. I shoot a 12 gauge Remington super slug gun topped with Leupold 2*7*32 scope. It shoots 1 inch groups with the Remington accutips. Knock on wood i haven't lost a deer yet. Most don't make it a few steps and fall over. Average shots for most people is around 60 yards and with slugs guns today 200 yards is possible.
