We just published our list of the best new shotguns of 2011, which we picked after spending a week in Montana conducting tests on eight shotguns. Our gun tests are the biggest project we take on each year, and while they’re lots of work, they’re also a blast. This year’s tests were hosted by the Boone and Crockett Club ranch, and while the scenery was killer, the temperatures were freezing. Check out this quick overview clip of our shotgun testers in action.
