Bought a 12 ga Ithaca/SKB 500 O/U, M/IC back in the 70`s when I was in the service. It`s taken lots of dove and quail over the years. Short barreled and quick! Shoot it pretty well, but my 12 ga Browning B-80 with a 28" barrel may be a better dove gun. I`m anxious to try my new Remington V3 this year for dove with a light mod choke and for turkey with a turkey choke.

I usually use a 12ga Beretta 391 field model or a late 70s 12ga Wingmaster. Mostly we hunt pheasant. I bought the 391 when I was just getting into shotguns and upland hunting about ten years ago. Didn’t know much about shotguns then, was more of a pistol shooter, but the 391 just felt comfortable-and it was a good deal. The 391 has been 100% reliable as a hunting gun and I seem to shoot it well. For some reason I’ve always liked Wingmasters. I fit them well and I like the balance.

Benelli Nova in 12, it's primarily used for turkey, doves, waterfowl, bunnies, pigs, and any other shotgunning I do...it is also coincidentally my only shotgun, though as funds permit a 20 is on my wishlist and should be taking over for s ome of the small game/upland duties...I've also considered a .410

For wild pheasant I like my 12ga. L.H. Benelli Montefeltro and my 16ga. Browning Citori. For waterfowl I like my 12ga.L.H. Benelli M1 with synthetic stock & forearm or my 12ga. L.H. Rem. 870 Wingmaster.

I do more waterfowl hunting than anything and I prefer the Browning Maxus 26”. I shoot my M2 20 gage 28” during early teal and at my favorite teal spot. I also hunt quail and dove with the 20 gage occasionally. My favorite turkey gun is the Remington Versa Max with 28” barrel.

Mostly go for waterfowl and use a remington 11 / 87 12ga 28 " light contour and a sx3 20 ga 26 " sometimes. Like them both

I shoot Mossbergs now, for everything I hunt..........My two Browning's stolen with my car a while back........I just can't justify a new Browning price at my age, or budget.

My fav is a 325 Citori in 20ga with Invector chokes. It has 26" bbls and weighs 6 lbs 5 oz. A very pleasant gun to carry and shoot.

Another fav is my Light Twelve A-5

I don't have a "favorite" bird gun, but every shotgun I own is a bird gun. I don't have but one that I would consider particularly valuable or collectible - it's well used and was my dad's favorite. I have three that I would consider "classic" shotguns. I have American made, Belgian, Spanish, and Turkish made shotguns, 12, 16, 20, and 28 gauge, O/U, SxS, or pump. I enjoy shooting and hunting with all of them. They are all my "favorites" or I wouldn't have them.

When it's time to hat up and hit the field with friends and dogs, I just pick the one I want to shoot that day.

Love the 28 gauge for use on upland birds.

I'm in much the same boat. I have an eclectic assortment of shotguns with Berettas the most numerous. I grab whatever suits my fancy that day whether its a 12, 20 or 28 O/U or a 12, 16 or 20 pump. It might be a Bland or Lefever SxS or maybe a Sweet Sixteen. If I was forced to be a pragmatist I'd probably just chose the Beretta Blackwing 12 for everything but the guns I have are ones I really like and I enjoy spending time in the field with all of them. I have to say though the recent addition, an Ithaca 37S, 26 inch IC 16 is starting to become my favorite gun at the skeet and SC range and I could see it easily become my favorite upland gun.
