Wildfowl's Best Duck Guns at Every Price Point

There are pessimists in all walks of life, yet I'm still taken aback by how many are encountered among our ranks. After all, this is arguably the best time to be a duck hunter in many years. Duck populations are at record highs. Season lengths and bag limits are generous. Steel shotshells finally work. And our guns — at every conceivable price point — are in some ways better than ever before.

You can buy a duck gun with a couple days' pay or one that's equivalent to a monthly mortgage statement. Most are well-made, reliable and — for different reasons — worth the investment. Here are a few of the best duck guns at every price point.
