I'm looking for a semi auto 28, does anyone have one they like for any particular reason? I'm leaning towards an Ethos but want to shoot one first if at all possible.

I have a Legacy 28. Awesome for birds. Not particularly fun for clays.

It took me a while to figure out the purpose of the Legacy 28, but it was absolutely clear once in the field! Great hunting gun.

Could you add enough weight to it for sporting purposes? I assume the Ethos is just as light.

IMO no. it's just not the right frame. I think the Ethos might be a bit heavier.

TBH once you get near $2K for a sporting 28 i think the 686 gets the win. Big bonus is you don't have to bend over a bunch to get your empties for reloading.

I'm waiting a semi auto to help with recoil though. My nephew wants to shoot my SBE but the recoil smokes him.

If you want to reduce the recoil you will need a gas gun I would think
