Hi. I own several Franch's.

Affinity 150 anniversary 20g w/ 26 in barrel
Instinct L 20g w/ 28 in barrels
Aspire 28g w/ 28 in barrels

Yesterday I added the Franchi Destino 20g sxs. It is a beautiful gun that came at a fair price. I shot it yesterday and must say that I shot it horribly. The Destino only has 26in barrels and maybe I should have opted for something with 28's. This being said, I see that many sxs have 26 in barrels so maybe I'm missing something.

Of the other guns that I won, I shot the Aspire 28g better than the rest even though it is a smaller gauge. Shooting the new Destino took me down to hitting have the clays that I normally shoot. I'm pretty consistent in trap at 19-22 with the other guns, but I ended with an 11 on the sxs! Even skeet was a loser for me. I'm guessing I just need more time, but it is clear that it shoots completely different than my others. Any advise?

No, I have one from when they were clearance priced after they didn’t sell. They were one of 250. It was my first decent sxs and I shot it okay but it was very heavy and hasn’t been out of the safe for years.
