Starting with my grandfathers 1897 Winchester I too have gone through a few over the years.What I've settled on when birds are on the line are my 80s era 870 wingmaster 12 guage 28 inch with tubes for water fowl and my Browning Citori lightning 12 guage 28 inch for upland. As soon as I can scrape together the cash I'll get a 20 guage Lightning or White Lightning for quail or smaller upland birds, then I'll be all done buying guns. Yeah right!

Took a Winchester model 1400 20 ga out yesterday. I have a number of shotguns but chose this one because; Light weight(Al reciever), plain barrel with SK choke and I was out for more of a walk/exercise thing. I am 76 Years old and have Type 2 diabetes. The gun really enjoyed the walk by the way and I never even saw a tweety bird so I didn't even waste a round or dirty the barrel.

Since I only hunt doves and rats with shotguns, I use a 1981 Citori 12ga and a Remington 870 in 20ga for the doves. For the 2 legged rats I use a Dept. issued 18" Rem 870 loaded with 00 buckshot. All 3 guns work great. :)
