Any of you guys own one? Been thinking about one for a very long time. Sell everything and just shoot this!

I have a K-20, not a Parcourd.
Weighs 8 lbs and is ideal (for me) target gun.
I've added barrels for 28 ga and 410.

I have a standard K20 with the adjustable target stock. It and my K80, similarly stocked, are my go-to target guns. Both have upgraded wood. Exceptional balance and feel, and very nice to look at. Can't break 'em with a hammer, either.

Slugo the first step is admitting you have a problem. "Hello, my name is Slugo and I'm a shotgun addict." "Hi Slugo!!"

It all depends on what your goals are. If your ultimate goal is to own a very nice and expensive shotgun, buy it. You don't need our permission. If you want to become a better shot, keep your Brownings, sell off the rest of your junk and use the extra money on lessons.

I shoot a K-80 Parcours in Competition... This will be the perfect hunting gun. :)

The first time I held the K-80 Parcours in my hands I asked Phil Krieghoff "when is the 20 ga version due?". Last year when the K-20 Parcours came out and I finally held it in my hands, it felt like the ultimate hunting shotgun!

Since retiring I have way too much time on my side. Trying to scratch an itch that never goes away. I guess I'm just looking for Mr. Goodbar.

My Parcours is an extension of my body like no other gun around... highly recommended.

The Parcours 12-gauge is a very nice shotgun - well balanced and lively with enough weight for control and recoil absorption. With factory wood the gun kicks me in the face, but that is a stock fit issue. I found the K20 Parcours to be "flippy." It would probably be a nice hunting gun, but I could not move it smoothly on targets. If I were looking for a (primarily) clays gun in 20-gauge, I believe that my choice would be the "standard" K20 with 32" barrels - well balanced and controllable. This is an opinion forum; so that's what you get, and mine is worth exactly what it cost you.

The K20 Parcours weighs in at 7 pounds.

7# isn't "light" for a sub-gauge gun, but total weight wasn't my issue. For me, there wasn't enough weight forward to enable a smooth swing (ymmv). It was great for short-window and close targets, but not so much for longer presentations, especially crossers (not usually one of my problems). If you are seriously considering a K20 Parcours, I recommend a long demo of the sort you can arrange with Paxton Sporting Arms. It's a big investment, and you want to be sure that the gun feels as good out on the course as it does in the store. Have fun.

This is what I'm using now. Citori CXS 20 gauge with 32" pipes. Not one complaint about this one. IC/M combo, it ink spots the targets!
