Sabatti Falcon, I've killed a pickup load of grouse with that shotgun!

Early Benelli Super Black Eagle, It has brought down more ducks than I have been able to keep track of.

A friend I worked for part time during the summer bought it for me as a bonus. Sadly he passed away a couple of years ago.

My favorite changes with whatever I am using the shotgun for; BUT, my most favorite has to be my DeHaan (Huglu) Model SO (SxS) 20 gauge that my wife bought for my birthday years ago!!

It is light, carries well, and Mark did the triggers to 3 lbs each - almost too light!!

I still carry my grandpa's guns..
Remington 572
Remington 870 16ga
Remington 1100 16ga
......
The 1100 , has never failed. That I know of.
In almost 50 years.
As a kid, I deer hunted with it.
Ducks.
Squirrels.
Rabbits.
Quail.
Pheasants
You name it.
We shot. It.
It's still going strong.
......
Course, I can say the same for the old corn Cobb 870 too.
But that 1100 has a special place in my heart.

1960s Remmy 1100 12G
I know, nothing special but mine had several 1000 shells put through it and into targets, tree rats, rabbits, deer..etc by my grandfather and dad before it was mine. They've both passed on. Many Remmy 1100's but this one is mine.

Love reading this thread. I hunted birds for 35 years in Baja CA with Dad where
you could only register 2 guns. Every June I would have to pick my 2 favorites.
We choose smaller gauges so we could bring additional shells

Stevens 311 in 410 many times.
Remington 1100 20, 28, 410
Beretta 686

The last 2 years I went I registered the Winchester 9410. What a blast
on fast doves in the AM flying low into a field. Never shot at anything past
25 yards. Great memories. I miss you dad!

So many and so hard to choose!

I have a 1911 vintage Parker GH 12 ga that is a dream, and a Husqvarna 16ga sidelock hammer gun from the same era that is very nice also. I picked up a little Winchester 101 20 ga field grade back in 1973 when stationed over in Turkey.

I think my hands down favorite is a little 28 ga Darne, French made, a sliding breech
sxs double.

For shooting-a 1939 Winchester model 12. For looking at-a Spencer model of 1882 (pre-Bannerman).

Remington Model 17 I inherited from my grandfather. He and I and my cousins used to go rabbit hunting every fall and winter and that was the gun he'd lend me to use. I liked his Browning A5 but one of my other cousins got it and I really can't complain because this was the one I used and I grew very fond of it. Bottom ejection and pretty smooth to cycle. Even used it for squirrels, dove and quail.

My 870 has seen a bit of mud and blood and I like it for its simplicity. Nothing fancy, at a pinch you can use it as a paddle to get to the duck spot, shoot your dinner and paddle back with it. Wipe it down and squirt some oil at it and its ready for another day.

That sums up what I think about 870's . . . but I've yet to use one for a paddle.
