So now I have 3 12 gauges and I have a 20 on the way. I don't even shoot shotguns that often. Like once a year (other than 3-gun). I rarely hunt.

I have a problem, doc... :roll:

Of all the problems to have, your's is not too bad. I like the late model on the bottom as it's much like my own. I do like the engraving on the top one though.

Just gotta pick on you a little bit in fun:

Phobia=fear of.

Itis=inflammation

I have 48-itis. :mrgreen:

I love them, not fear them. {hs#

I realize that I am making a play on semantics bur when my beloved Franchi 48s are the subject, I prefer that proper usage of grammar be used. :) We both have the same disease for which there is no cure. Nor am I looking for a cure. There is no vaccine for it, either.

Love my 48s, especially the 20 gauges. Ain't anything wrong with the other gauges, but the 20 gauge is my first love.

No prob... I'll pick on you right back, if I may. Read what I wrote again. :D


Philia=love of. I'm a grammar guy as well. But I am also fond of reading comprehension. {hs# :wink:

I put my specs on and read it again. Sorry about that. I am graduated the 6th grade with a D+ average. I'll read closer next time.

Picked up my (nearly new) 20 gauge yesterday... WOW is it LIGHT!!! Holy smoke, what a graceful, lovely design. I thought my 12s were light, but wow!

Now you need to get an Eldorado Grade, much more rare than the Hunter Grade, but it will balance out your collection.
