I recently bought an H&R Partner Protector 12 gauge. It's basically a clone of a Remington 870. I like the shotgun but the stock didn't fit at all. The length of pull was too short and it dropped too much at the heel. When I pulled it up to my shoulder, I had to lift my cheek up off the stock to properly sight down the barrel.

I bought a Magpull stock for an 870 and it attached perfectly. It came with 4 inserts that allows you to adjust the length of pull. Also, it has a parallel comb (no drop at the heel) that gives perfect cheek placement for sighting down the barrel. The pistol grip area drops down and gets your hand out from in front of your face. It's a solid feeling piece of work and it's evident that the people at Magpul put a lot of thought into shaping it so that it gives the shotgun a good fit.

I recommend it to anyone that doesn't like the fit they get from the H&R Partner Pump series of shotguns or an 870.

You can find them for about $90.

4” Colt Diamondback best pistol I ever had. Just so easy to hit with that one.

Short action BLRs for whatever reason fit me really well and swing like a light shotgun. Only rifle I’ve made multiple hits on running game with.

S&W 19 with a 4 inch barrel

Shotgun
Beretta 391 20 gauge fits me like a glove and shoots exactly where I am looking.
First time I shot it I had borrowed it from a buddy that was selling it because he didn't shoot it as well as he does a Beretta 390. We went dove hunting one afternoon and I killed a 15 bird limit w 20 shells. Wrote him a check for it on the spot.

Rifle
M1 Garand and Tikka T3
When I shoulder one the sights line up on target everytime.

Thoughts on the Browning B2000... I've had several over the years in 20 gauge and agree that they come up nice in the hands. I did have issues too with failure to eject. Frequent cleaning was paramount but even that did not always solve the problem. If one remembers, they came with barrels marked either 2 3/4" or 3". My early ones all had the 3" barrels and I don't remember having many issue with running 3" shells. I later drilled out the gas port hole in the barrel to a slightly larger size and never had problems with 2 3/4" shells jamming again as long as I kept it clean. My later 2000 20, that I still have, was purchased with a 2 3/4" barrel to begin with and I have never had problems with that one!

With that said, I have been a Benelli fan with it's mechanical recoil action since that time and now mostly use 20 gauge Montefeltros for my upland hunting. They are pretty forgiving on the maintenance issues, yet still come up real nice like the 2000 did.

I will agree with huntsman on the Colt Woodsman/Huntsman .22's as well! Mine is a 2nd series 6" target model with the bakelite grips. It just melts/molds into your hand and is balanced very nicely. It is my only .22 pistol that I have been able to get a running jackrabbit with enough frequency to keep me trying on occasion rather than going exclusively with a scoped bolt action .22.

I will add three others to my honorable mention list for natural pointers...

1. Browning Safari Grade Mausers. They sure are heavy by today's standards but Browning designed a wonderful classic stock for them, at least for me.

2. Browning BSS w/ field stock. Mine is the only 12 that I own and has 26" barrels, but it seems to hit/kill everything I point it at (pheasants/quail). I was skeptical at first, it being a bulkier 12 w/ short barrels until I shot it. I shudder to think what a field stocked 20 with 28" barrels would be like... maybe someday!

3. Anything in a Remington 700 KS stock! For me the best feel in a synthetic rifle stock.

My 2000 was a 2 3/4" chambered 12 Ga.

My Marlin Guide Gun with the XS small ghost ring sights. A decent AR w/ a parallex free red dot works well also.

Merkel 201e 12ga. fits me very well. Pretty much the only shotgun I shoot when I'm not shooting waterfowl.

Revolver - 3” L frame and 6.5” N frame S&W’s are magic for me. Full lugged versions so say 686 and 629 Classic.

Shotgun - laugh all you want, I can do anything with a Benelli SBE and do it fast. Woodcock to whitetail. That’s my plastic choice.

Rifle - fastest weld to my cheek and eye is sav 99 in DL with the high comb. My buddies BAR is ridiculously easy and intuitive with iron sights. Haven’t shot a BLR yet but imagine same.

Pistol - I just bought a CZ 75 that is impressing me beyond expectation. I guess the theme is I like heavier hand guns. But there’s a sweet spot there I don’t know what the weight range is.

It's tough to recall since I no longer own a firearm.

I'm a taller guy and I just miss consistently with an 870. Browning BPS has always pointed well and is my favorite shotgun. As to rifles my CZ 550 points like a dream. Big laminate stock. Love it but at my age it just keeps getting heavier every season.
