Hey guys I would like your opinion on the FRANCHI RENAISSANCE o/u shot gun either 12 or 20 gauge mostly 20. I would be using it for Grouse and pheasants mostly. and i was wondering if it was too light for a turkey? @--0--0109

As long as you get a good tight pattern with and keep the range under 35 yards the twenty should be fine .

hey deerboy91 the franchi renaissance is the perfect gun for all those birds you hunt, but i think the benelli ultra light would be the best gun you could possibly get for a reasonable price.   good luck kid on making a tough decision.
Take your kids hunting!

That's a good gun and in a 20 gage, I don't think you can go wrong, and like sundowner said, pattern it, and know what it can do at 30-35 yards for the turkey. You will enjoy shooting it alot.
