Well after 32 years on this earth my Father finally took me out shooting. The old man has 5 shotguns and never took me out when I was younger! We went clay shooting and I immediately became addicted and needed to buy my own firearm. We then went quail hunting and it was a blast! I found a great deal on a Browning BPS Real Tree Max 5 shotgun (http://www.browning.com/products/firearms/shotguns/bps/limited-availability/bps-realtree-max-5.html). It was on sale at Basspro for $500. Plus it has a $50 rebate. I haven't got to shoot it yet but it feels great. After much research I found out it was part of their 2018 SHOT show production line. So it is a limited availability shotgun design. I'm pretty excited to say the least. Anyhow, I have a few questions. First, I'm looking for good case. I was leaning towards the BOYT Plantation soft case. Looks great and seems like it would last a long time. But, if you have any suggestions let me know. Second, I do plan on mostly shooting clay, skeet, trap and most of all some waterfowl. But could this firearm work for deer? I also have a friend that hunts deer and I wanted to join him some time. What type of setup would I need to make this shotgun work for hunting deer? (choke, shell size, etc) Lastly, I've only been quail hunting once. So I am new to hunting. My wife is completely against it for reasons unknown. I don't plan on letting that stop me though. Anyone else deal with a wife that is against the hunt? Thanks all!
