I love turkey guns but too this is an answer looking for a question. 
 

With todays new turkey loads and super lightweight guns I don’t know why anyone would want a O/U. And make no mistake about it I love O/U and purchased my two grail shotguns when I retired. 
 

My crew shot more turkeys this year with the 410.

I love the idea of an over under for turkey the problem is finding one with the barrels regulated properly. I’ve tried 3 including the one in the video bill put up and haven’t found one yet that would shoot both barrels in the same spot.
 

An over under turkey gun has a few things going for it, 2 chokes is the main one for me. Having 2 different shells is also nice. I shoot my birds really close so I use a modified choke and lead loads. I wouldn’t hate having a little tighter choke and a shell with a little larger shot on standby if needed. Having another shell at the ready without having to move anything but your finger is another big benefit, I’ve had 2 shotgun shells not go off in the last 3 years.

     Over/Unders were a favorite  of mine in Skeet Shooting. Actually  won a Registered Skeet/ 12 Gauge competition  back in 1994. 

  Just a personal preference, I am looking into at the moment.

  Nice Gun there. I have a Steven's  Single Shot.  With the tremendously increasing Black Bear Population  in North New Jersey where,I hunt Spring Gobblers as well as over the border in NY,I want that all important 2nd Shot.  Semi- Autos tend to be heavier.  I love Pumps as well. Time for a chance down the road to keep me going out.

O/U shotguns with barrels not regulated to both shot to POI is a product of inexpensive guns. 
 

Expensive shotguns from Krieghoff, Perazzi, to less expensive Beretta and Browning’s will almost always shoot to POI from both barrel. Of course there are always lemons even in expensive guns.

Most inexpensive shotguns are made in Turkey and it’s a crap shoot if your going to get a good one. 
 

If I was staring out fresh today you can’t go wrong with a 28 or 20 gauge shotgun with TSS. I would pick an automatic but my nephews had no trouble tagging out with single shots in 410. In both upstate NY and Long Island. One nephew shot one with the 410 and one on LI with the bow.

I also shoot registered skeet. I shoot a Krieghoff K80 with Briley tubes in all 4 gauges.

I also have a K20 three barrel set for upland game, 20,28 and 410. 

After owing Browning and Beretta shotguns Krieghoff shotguns are fantastic.

But in order to own these two shotguns I sold 60 long guns and several handguns. 

I can die a happy man. 
 

Don’t buy a Turkish shotgun. Many have regretted it. For more info swing over to shotgunworld.com.

  I sold most of my Guns many years back to pay for a Wake and Funeral. Down to just 8 Long Guns and 1 Handgun. Probably  look for an over/under- under$800 next year.
