What shotgun feels like it was made with you in mind?

For me it's the Remington 31 Riot.

I hate to say it because I sound like such a pleb, but my mossberg 500atp from 1982 with 18.5" RS barrel points like an extension of my shoulder. It's just so fast.
If I shot trap, the Browning BT99 is super natural for me. Swings like nothing else in my hands.

The Rem 870 Wingmaster 16 Ga. that I shot for over 30 years. I just gave it up to my older brother today. I just purchased a Stoeger M3000 and I am pleased with it so far. I'm sure it will do well for ducks (the reason I switched).
That Wingmaster was my right hand though.

Remington 11. Classic, beautiful, functional, a bit heavy, and way away from normal operation. I fit the same description except for the beautiful part.

Mine is my High Standard Model 10B. But I've always had a soft spot for the ugly girls.

There have been many. Several Remington 1100s, a Rossi SxS of all things, a Winchester 23 28 gauge, Wingmaster Magnum, V. Bernardelli 20 gauge, Browning BSS Sporter, an AYA #4, a few others.

Winchester SX-1, field grade, 28" mod barrel.

They're machined steel and fairly heavy for a field gun. I decided it needed new springs and a buffer since it was used and only cost me $449. I don't recall why I had a roll of duct tape on the table.

i have 6 or so older double barrels that i hunt with from time to time,but these two are my favorites. a browning bss sporter from the 70,s in 20ga and a fox sterlingworth from the 20,s in 16ga and they both came when unexpected and at a very good price and they shoot where i look. i,m trying to shoot a 25-25 at singles trap with the bss browning,so far i have not gotten above 23-25. i may never get there but it is a lot of fun trying. eastbank.

I also have 2, my Browning BSS 20 with the sporter stock, and my Browning BT-99 with the adjustable comb, I really have to concentrate in order to miss with either, hunting or trap shooting. har har!

Ithaca DSPS with 20" barrel. 7+1 of sweetly balanced slam fired fun. I need to take the ol' girl out dancing again. I haven't shot it in a couple years.

Winchester Defender & Browning Citori 725 grade VI. I have a complex personality, some would say an uneven one
I own only the first one and do not foresee change about that any time soon.

I have a 20" Remington 870 Wingmaster I bought at an estate sale years ago that fits me perfectly. The only other shotgun that felt that good was one I tried at the Beretta factory in one of their meeting rooms. It was a double barrel (I don't recall the name). It felt as if it had been made specifically for me.

Well I've only had it for a week but my new 500 has everything I'm looking for in a pump action. I'd also say the BPS however you can't really customize them and I don't care for the fact that their made in Japan. Aside from were their made they are still an amazing shotgun.

I REALLY like the Mossberg 500-590 series. All the controls are just right and the length of pull... it's just... it's just great!

I just got one of those off craigslist and sawed off the barrels and stock to make a coach gun.


If you're clutching your heart right now, I was only joking.

I have TWO FNH SLP shotguns, the short barrel non MK1 versions. One is the regular stock and one tactical with the pistol grip. I can't decide which one is better, they both shoulder up and the sights line up.

Winchester 1400. I wish it could be something not so hum-drum,
but they shoot where I look.
