    Just curious what the numbers look like around here. Thought a poll would allow folks to participate anonymously if they so choose.

    2 here. 870, 500A

    Started with an 870 and made it a combo, but sold the extra parts when they could fund almost a whole new shotgun.

    I Found that I could load a Mossberg 500A much faster and I liked it better overall.

    I hear you. Well, while I really don't need a 20, I sure want one, for some reason.

    One 590 ghost ring 9-shot
    One Browning Gold Fusion 12-ga
    One Stoeger 20-ga break open single shot

    All three get shot a lot. No problems from any of them and good performance from each one. I'd sell the 590 to help get a nice 870 w/ GR sights but the 590 just does everything pretty damn well. The Fusion is a dream.

    Mossberg 835 12 gauge (hunting)
    Browning Gold with DuraTouch in Shadow Grass 12 gauge (hunting)

    Browning Feather XS 12 gauge (skeet)
    Browning BT-99 Max 12 gauge (trap)
    Winchester 101 20 gauge (too good of a deal to pass up).

    Eventually I will get a Browning 20 and 28 gauge but that's a few years down...Also looking into a Benelli for home defense.

    I have only one. (See user name.)

    I feel a need for only that one.

    It feels good in my hands, all black & synth.

    If I want, I can install different barrels for hunting,
    but for now, that 18" suits me fine
    for keeping an eye on the studio.

    Recently, it donned a sling,
    installed 'upside down' for African carry.

    Now, said puppy mostly stays upstairs.
    While downstairs, especially 'after hours',
    I've got the 9 in an OWB.
    It would allow getting to the 870P,
    should I hear breaking glass or a door being busted.

    Load? 00 RR.

    It's enough.

    Having owned over two dozen guns in the last 15 years I've made a conscious effort to thin the herd and upgrade. Here's where I ended up.

    12 gauge o/u for clays
    12 gauge semi-auto for waterfowl, back up clays gun and loaner if required.
    12 gauge sxs for upland
    28 gauge o/u for subgauge clays and back up for upland
    12 gauge 870 with three barrels (14" 20" 28") for slug hunting, predator control and back up waterfowl gun.

    Just one right now...Maverick 88 Have both the 28" modified choke and the 18-1/2" cylinder bore barrels. Usually it wears the short "Home & Land Security" barrel

    But on the lookout for a short 'Coach Gun' with the big external 'dog ear' hammers. I'll find what I want in that fairly soon.

    I currently own two shotguns:

    Remington 11-87 which I use for trap and hunting.

    Mossberg 590a1 for HD.

    I am currently looking for a reasonably priced O/U for use on the trap range, but so far everything is much more expensive than I can swing, so the hunt continues. :mad:

    Two Winchester model 12s, on in 16ga and one in 20ga.
    An A.H. Fox 12ga sbs.
    A Savage 28ga single shot, no idea what the model is.
