My Favorite Gear, Part 2

I've been able to shoot different guns over the last few years, some with better results than others. But at the end of every experience, I keep coming back to one thing--I really like my 870. It's not super expensive, and it's not dirt cheap, but my Remington 870 Express, 12-gauge shotgun is another tool I have to place on my Favorite Gear List. I bought it many years ago, and it's never let me down. It's heavy, and it's not "flashy," but it gets the job done. I can beat the snot out of it, and use it on ducks, turkeys, doves, and rabbits with equal confidence that it's going to get the job done. Remington 870 express, I salute you. Since we announced our first "favorite gear" post, we've had some great responses--itemized catalogs from readers listing everything from their favorite hats to flashlights to fishing rods. Here is a sampling, but remember, there's still a chance to win. We're throwing the names of everyone who posts or e-mails (to generationwild@gmail.com) their favorite gear into a drawing for a RedHead Deluxe Gear Bag (embroidered with the Generation Wild logo). So shoot us your favorite gear list if you haven't already! Alex Penice: "...My G Loomis Xperience rod is my favorite casting stick. It's strong, and has a good action. It pulled in my biggest smallies of the last 2 years (FYI--Alex won the rod from a contest organized by FlyTalk). Ben C: "I never go fishing without a chain stringer. Yeah the green stick method works good but if I'm gonna be on the shore all day I want my fish to stay cool in the water." Dustin: "My flashlight. It's a Rayovac, and it's the brightest flashlight I've ever seen. It's only like $30, too--definitely a good value." Butterball: "I like to make sure I'm comfortable sitting with my dad while Turkey hunting. So...my stretchy underwear is a must and my Nintendo DS to keep me occupied." Ty: "My favorite gadget is my Light My Fire, firestarter...It works great and I was able to start a fire with Newspaper on my first try. I also like my Leatherman Knife. I also need 15 pairs of socks because they tend to get wet."
