    The CG, with 32" barrels is the most naturally pointing, well balanced shotgun I have ever held...

    Several friends who have shot the gun feel the same.

    Get 32" bbls in the 28. They will help with control & balance. I do favor the Guerini. Tom

    I have and enjoy a Browning XS Ultra 30" Sporter in 28 ga. These guns can be had for a very good price. They actually weigh a little more than the 20 ga.

    They are a lot of fun. You will want to reload for this little gem ($$$$$)

    Make sure to get some very tight chokes. XF will give you surprisingly good breaks.

    I am still waiting for the CG to establish itself with high round count guns and long term service.

    You can't go wrong with Browning or the CG. Pick the one that fits you best. I prefer the CG's balance and weight.

    I will have to go with the concinsus on this one. 28 ga CG with 32" barrels are a joy to shoot and handle. Absolutely the best gun in its price range! The other plus is that you can get either right or left handed wood. Buy the Summit limted model with the nice color case hardening and upgraded wood.

    I'll also agree to the 32" Guerini, mine is still new but it's been a blast to shoot. It does very well in small gauge competitions, I even use it in the 20 gauge comps. Mine has just over 4K rounds thru it.

    I/M is a really fine choke, including in the 28 G.

    The only things I dislike about it is the coarse rasp-like rib surface, very distracting. And the steel tubes, for what they cost they should be stainless.

    Browning has certainly established their service and it sucks! On the other hand, Guerini's service is second to none.
