I have an older Robust #4 16 that has bores rough as where the county road crew left off after quitting time on a Friday.

Thing is, it shoots great and patterns everything well. Go shoot Elsie. wink

Oh,,, it stil shoots good but the metal's pretty thin at a few of those pimples.
It'll probably never let go, but still, I have visions of pulling a trigger and ending up looking like Elmer Fud after another failed attemp at shooting that Waskelly Wabbit or Willy Coyotee after firing his new Acme shotgun.


The place smells like whores and Hoppes.

I used a fine 16-gauge double yesterday hunting in an all-day rain. I had to set it in the mud a number of times for the usual dead bird and dog handling tasks, but I just wiped the metal on my pant legs and carried on.

Actually I could never do that - the abused gun was a Benelli. wink


Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense.

I get a bit weary of some of the uppity people that hunt Pheasant. I must admit, though my favorite gun is a Webley 12 gauge SXS with 2 1/2 inch chambers...

You must not have hunted there for the opener yesterday or last year. smile

Never seen it so bad as it was yesterday, 30mph winds, gusts to 50, dust bowl conditions. Most of the CRP had either been baled or grazed due to the drought, very very few birds. I'd have been better off carrying a Red Ryder BB gun, its a lot lighter to carry and just as effective when you never have to shoulder it. smile

I like the Citori 16ga. o/u with choke tubes and a Winchester model 23 sxs 12 ga. Those two have taken a lot of birds over the years. I have had a few others and as long as the gun is under six and half pounds its okay for the uplands.

A 12 ga. Winchester Model 12 works well for me.

Well,,,, if shooting the same old double I bought used over forty years ago amounts to being "uppity" then I guess I'm guilty. ;>)

I don't own any "classic" shotguns, but my go to guns for roosters are a Beretta Black Onyx 12 ga. 28" O/U, and a pair of Winchester 23 Pigeon Grade Winchoke 12 ga. 26" S/S's. Each of these guns is plus or minus 25 years old. Not nearly old enough to be any good! grin A load of 2-3/4" 5's works well enough.

In an effort to improve my image, I have acquired several 20 gauge shotguns, which I have yet to try out on roosters, just the skeet range, since I am forced to work for a living, and am extremely busy. But, am looking forward to shooting my Beretta 687 Onyx 20 and a Beretta 471 Silverhawk 20. grin

You haven't shot that Beretta on Roosters yet!? What a shame. I'll shoot it for you if you need me to laugh

Bravo

BTW - get a Benelli

You can adjust the drop in the stock if you tend to shot over or under the birds - easy fix.

Also they have a high rib so if you have eye dominance issues they are less troublesome

You're properly uppity. cool

Woolens and English doubles are required accouterments at a pheasant shoot. wink

Cheesy: Only had the pleasure of hunting in Kansas once 7 years ago with a good friend. Memorable. Pity the season is so poor this year. All the best.

Beautiful Classic double!

I wanted one of these, and there were a lot coming in a couple of years ago. I missed out when they were relatively inexpensive.

What loads do you use in her?
