    Some of my favorites?

    It's like asking me which of my kids I like better. Although I did recently shoot a 100 bird tournament with a 9+ lb O/U fitted with .410 subgauge tubes. I found it amusing in the extreme. I could hardly tell the thing fired except for the fact that the targets were breaking. It felt like I'd shot 100 squib loads, all in a row.

    Exactly. I can't pick a favorite either.

    The gun that delights me the most would be my Perazzi MX8-28 gauge. Great fun at sporting clays and a pure pleasure to shoot.

    In the duck blind however my favorite is my Beretta 391.

    Hunting upland my 12 gauge Iberian sxs on a 16 gauge frame is without peer.

    When something goes bump in the night or there are mysterious noises in the barn nothing beats my 870.

    Each one is a favorite for different reasons.

    A nice classy O/U (Ive sadly never owned an O/U but prefer them) in 12 gauge.

    But for now my Mav88 12g is serving me very well, just with much less panache.

    A nice CZ Woodcock Deluxe (O/U) in 20ga but I am beginning to feel the need for a 28ga.

    Kinda assumes you do one thing, so one guns works.

    I have a Weatherby Orion II that I use for clays. It's as close to perfect as I'm gonna get

    Use a 10 gauge SP-10 for geese and turkeys. 3 1/2" shell with 2 oz might be a little much for sporting clays

    I use an 870 for general field stuff and a rifled barrel for deer.

    Well, I'm very glad to hear that redranger1! The 28ga BPS I ordered just came in on tuesday! I've only got to shoot two boxes through it, but I am in love! I'm sad because I'm travelling to Asia for three weeks on monday and won't get to shoot it again until amost November!

    As far as the one I shoot the most and am the best with, it must be my 12ga SKB 85TSS O/U 30". It weighs almost ten pounds and after picking up something like a Beretta 682 Gold E it feels incredibly unsexy and cumbersome, but I have never found a gun I shoot so well! It swings so well and fits me like a glove. Shot my first 25 straight in skeet with it this spring in a windstorm and my second a week later in a downpour!

    For a pump action, I love mossberg 12 guages. (I have a 500).
    For a semi auto, I would love to have a Bennelli SBE II :D

    Obsolete Eastern Arms early 1900's SBS 12ga 30" barrel with pearl sights. Holds a tight pattern. Not a high tech gun at all but it locks up tight and fires well. I think it's the age I like best.

    Marlin single shot .410. Gun weighs under 5 lbs and swings nicer than a fine double.

    I had an 870 in 28, but it just didn't fit me. I'd love a superlight 28 gauge double, but the American ones are super expensive and I have no illegal aliens in my safe.
