    What are your favorite Upland bird guns? I hunt Quail, Pheasant, Huns, Chuker, Ruff Grouse. I use 2 guns, My 20 gauge Traditions By Fausti and my 28 gauge Savage Milano. They are both O/U's. With the right chokes and shells they both do the job very well......Bob

    I'm shooting a Franchi o/u that has both 12 and 20 G barrels. I'm finding th 20 g is getting the most use .

    My favorite is the 91 year old Parker 16 gauge. It has taken ND & SD phez, as well its share of quail and dove down here in the short 2 1/2 years I've owned it.

    Some very nice guns gentlemen.

    TB, is the Parker a SxS?  I thought it was an O/U.

    I use a Beretta, Silver Pigeon, 20ga on Grouse and Phez.  I've also got a Beretta, 391, 12ga that I bought for when I get into a duck blind.

    Pork, it is a SXS. Not aware that Parker ever produced any stackpoles. This particular piece is choked Skeet and Improved Modified.

    Thanks TB. I don't know why I remember it as a O/U. That is a really nice pic by the way.

    I have been shooting a Beretta Silver Pigeon IV in 28 gauge, but have ordered a Caesar Guerini Essex LTD. in 28 gauge that should arrive later this fall. Looking forward to a slightly heavier firearm, as the Beretta was too light.

    You know this swing to "its gotta be light." Has a lot of draw backs to it. Many hunters such as yourself Evan, have learned heavier is a little better. I will not buy a gun under 6 pounds. My 20's and 28 both weigh strangely the same thing 6.25 pounds. I find them to be good guns for an old man like me.......Bob

    I have a Aya 12ga double (Dad's Quail gun) and a 28ga double to "dump the birds".  I use a 12ga Browning Golden Hunter for Waterfowl.

    I have a Benelli SBE II 12 gauge that I used for everything from ducks to quail. I wanted to go lighter so I purchased a Benelli Montefeltro in a 20 gauge which is light and swings well. It does all I need for the birds that I hunt. However, I find that the 12 gauge just fits me better. I love the look of an over under and have borrowed a 20 silver pigeon that was beautiful....it just didn't fit me and feel right. (That's the reason I used for missing the birds I wish I could use a gun a few times before I purchase. I'm always looking for my next gun, you guys have given me some great ideas. I agree with the lighter, not always better for me. I sure appreciate the light weight when hiking but I swing it too fast and take a while to "get use" to the gun.

    I shoot a Ruger Red Label 20 ga with choke tubes.It seems to do OK .Any misses which there are a few is not the guns fault.I tried to use a semi 12ga but could not catch up to those roosters.This Ruger is what I used to hunt grouse with when we had some here in southern Ontario

    Huntig birds without a good dog is not worth going out

    I use a berretta 686 black onyx 20ga for grouse and pheasant.

    A Winchester super X2 for waterfowl 12ga

    A Benelli Nova 12ga for turkey and backup

    And  which ever rifle catches my fancy for deer season, .243 a bolt, 7mm-08 vanguard, 30-06 a bolt, or .300WSM Abolt

    And the Smith and Wesson .44 when doing drives.

    BC, back in the days when I hunted Big Game and other critters. My go to rifle was a .243, I killed more game with that rifle than any other I have ever owned. I hunted Big Game for about 35 years......Bob

    Jav, I love the SBE II. I had the opportunity to shoot it at a local outdoor festival and it was awesome. Light, soft shooting, minimal muzzle jump; great gun.
