I'm jealous.
Tell me about the guns please. I love twice holers.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

OU is a Beretta and mine is an SKB 200. Both 28 gauges did a good job on the pheasant.
That is my buddy's Llewellin and Molly, my Drahthaar, wouldn't sit still for the picture

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

I've never shot a 28. Heck you can hardly find shells around here, and I've only seen the guns at gun shows. I've heard that they are sweet to shoot. I'd love to find out sometime.

The 28 carries and swings up like a .410 and hits like a 20. My SKB SxS is 6 lbs.

I like the 20Ga. I would love to get my hands on a LC Smith SXS in 20Ga.

The SKB with the Prince of Wales stock and single trigger I picked up from my brother last fall. I like the way it handles and I am getting used to it. Below is my 28 DeHaan with straight stock and double triggers I got in 2008. I have been deadly with it.

I have a 20/28 gauge SXS combo sample that I’ve killed a few pheasants with.

As Tipster said, beautiful all around! I’ve thought many times about picking up a fine 28. Nice shotguns there!
