My latest find, for instance, a 25-year old Mossberg 835 turkey gun in original Realtree, is a perfect example. The old Realtree and Mossy Oak patterns are in among turkey hunters these days, and the gun was priced at next to nothing. Despite my increasing dislike for plastic-stocked and camo guns, this one I wanted. I missed my old 835 turkey gun—a gun I shot a bunch of turkeys with before I had to sell it to cover part of a huge vet bill, and the old camo pattern made it tough to resist. I looked this one over at the store. It had been used hard, but other than a missing front swivel stud, all the parts were there, everything worked, and the action was slick but not sloppy.
