Anyhoo, if I had any guns, I'd take an O/U SKB 20 pop.

Shane, thanks for those close up pics of your beautiful shotgun. On opening day you will be filling your limit with one of the best looking shotguns in Texas, and therefore in the World. Good luck, and be sure to post the tailgate results of this beauty.

I was able to find some 7 1/2 and 8’s today. I prefer 7 1/2 and 7’s. Winchester and Rio’s.

I have one too, built in the 70ís. My Dad bought it for my Mom and she no longer uses. Ted Williams Model 200 20Ga.
Basically a Winchester model 1200 sold in Sears. Its a sweeeeet shooting gun. I grew up killing ducks with it.

Yah, that 7.5 is what I like too. Especially in the .410. I've tried 8s. But lost to many crips in tall grass. 7.5 seems to fold them up better for most of my guns. I even use 6s in my SxS Fox with full and full. It's reach out there with some of my mag 1-1/8oz #6s home loads.

Browning pump - bought it back in 1986 and it's been my go to.. It's bottom eject, has interchange chokes & has never missed a beat. This pic shows some quail, but man did I break it in way back when with dove. I'm going to get back into dove hunting this year, so I'm glad for the post as motivation. I remember the 5gal bucket that I sat on etc... Good post!

Anybody tried the new Benelli 828u O/U? I was going to finally bite the bullet and step into a Citori 725 but I handled one of these at the shop the other day and it sure feels good. Now I'm torn.
