My 48 year old Remington 870 12 gauge was, is and always will be my favorite shotgun. I have four barrels for it: 30 inch full choke, 28 inch modified, 24 inch cylinder bore and 20 inch with rifle sights. It has never let me down.

This replaces my old favorite (and feel I'm cheating on her) is a WWII Browning A-5 20ga.
I've got the same shotgun but only in Coach configuration. Nice gun except for the triggers. They were terrible out of the box. Literally bottomed out my trigger pull gauge. CZ fixed them under warranty and brought them down to about 4.5lbs which is ok for a shotgun, but they have a bit of creep now which I guess I will have to accept.

Well it generally depends on what I'm using it for to say which is my favorite, but the one closest to heart, and I just enjoy shooting the most is an old plain-Jane, 5.5LB, BRNO 16 Ga, SXS, side-lock, English style stock, 28" bbls, DBL triggers. This ol girl comes up to the shoulder, points and swings where I'm looking as if it's part of me, without having to think about it.

Wish I still knew how to post pics, but since photobucket let us down, I no longer know what to do to post pics.

Here is a pic of the two trap shotguns I use, Browing Citori for doubles and my new BT99 34" with Tronspace work on the comb and recoil reduction, GryCoil kit was power coated to match the BT99 barrel. I made the case to transport when traveling thru airports and to the ranges.

I bounce back and forth among a '55 2-pin Model 12 skeet gun, a Perazzi Mirage wearing custom French walnut, and one of several Ithaca Knicks.

I have the same gun but in 12 gauge. It weighs about a pound more but it sure does come to the shoulder well! I had the chokes opened to Mod and Cyl. and it is my go-to for anything flying.

I have a couple others for small game hunting that are near and dear to me though. One, a Model 12 Winchester 16 ga, has the tightest full choke I've ever seen. Will flat smoke a squirrel at 50 yards using high brass #6. I also have an old 1897 that sees a lot of woods time, and lives behind the kitchen door for late-night chicken thieves. There are others of course, but they don't come out much due to age or as I age, weight. It just ain't fun toting a 8.5lb Auto 5 through the woods anymore.

I hear you on that! If you are thinking you are a great shot pick up a 410 and shoot a 100 with a 410. Best i have ever been able to do is 46x50. A 410 is humbling.
