I recently picked up a Stevens 555 in 28ga. I’m not a shotgun snob and I could care less what anybody else thinks of my guns. It weighs 5lb 1oz!!! I will use it 80/20 upland/targets. I have a Mec 600jr to load shells as they are quite pricey! It’s slow but a case a year is not a big deal. Only thing I’m gonna do to the gun is upgrade the chokes to Carlson’s extended. So far I’m very happy and can’t wait to carry it this fall in the field!
Kinda always wanted a 28ga BPS too. Maybe someday!

Currently own 3. A Fabarms Elos B, a Beretta BL3 and a Beretta a400 semi auto. Fabarms is by far the best looking and the first one I grab to carry around in the field all day. The A400 gets the nod for clay shooting and the BL3 is my "loaner" for visiting friends if we decide to hunt.

I have an 1100 Sporting with 27” barrels and I love it for any kind of upland bird hunting, it’s probably my favorite “fun” shotgun. It’s not as light as some of the other guns listed, but it’s still lighter than most bigger framed guns and I don’t mind it a bit. It’s also my girlfriend’s favorite gun for sporting clays.

I also have an ATI O/U, and it shoots well, too- and I know that’s not a high volume kind of gun, but it’s fine for hunting. Since the GF took a liking to the 1100 for clays, I will use this one more for hunting going forward.

I had a Browning OU, schable, straight grip, I think 26” barrels. Loved it for ruffed grouse and probably should have kept it, but traded it in on a Merkel SXS sidelock.

So far, I got more use out of the 28 than the twelve.

Trying to make this one acquired last year a favorite....but so far it sits below the Model 37 for hitting....It is about to go into fall training camp....

How about that Buck rub on a corner post.... wink

My 1100 is my only and only until next week when my Winchester 23 comes in, I can’t even sleep good, I’m like a kid on Christmas Eve.
Bit the bullet and one of each except the 16ga.
I’m enamored with the Franchi SLX o/u, pleasing to my eye but don’t have a clue about quality of the brand.
28’s came to me in my 50’s after my madness for simple killing subsided, the art of a correct kill is highly satisfying these days. If that makes sense.
