Yup, as soon as you cross the PA/Ohio border you're right around "home." Generally it's a nice area. Public hunting land is becoming less productive and land owners are pretty strict with handing out permission though.

So i have a 870 express 20 gauge and i've doing some research and saw an article on how to make my slug gun into a better deer rifle. Has anyone tried to put a new trigger kit into to make the pull easier?

870 Problems

Ive had this problem all so in my 870. It happens very rarely. The 870 is a good pump shotgun. It is alot better then a Mossberg 500. If i were u i would buy an 870 express mag

Not bad shootin there. Have you tried different ammo brands?

Thumbs down Black Hills makes so

Black Hills makes some good 55 grain soft point ammo for the .223, very reliable, resoanably priced. From looking at the bullet I would guess they (the bullets) are designed by Hornady.Federal Premium has the the proven 60 grain Nosler Partition loaded in the .223, a very effective round. With the .223 round shot placement is paramount, but they are extremely lethal on deer size game. Enjoy!!
