    What is your all round favorite shotgun, (that you own)? Not a Trap gun or a skeet gun but that gun you really enjoy shooting the most and why?

    Spider paint ball gun rules. It's not a shotgun but I can decorate all the critters that come into my yard. Have you ever seen a polka dot deer? Ha!

    391.

    A smooth pointer.
    no recoil.
    good balance and feel.
    always works.

    And I'm capable of "running them" with it.

    My serious trap gun is a 90T for singles & caps and the old "club" 3200 for dbls.

    I have 4 shotguns right now. My favorite is my 20 gauge 11-87 camo sportsman. I use it for all of my practice and most of my hunting. Being camo I don't have to worry about cleaning the exterior when I put it away. Being heavy for a 20 at 7 1/4 pounds with an added limbsaver pad it is my lightest recoiling gun. And it fits me like a glove. It shoots where I look.

    Without a doubt a Remington 1100 Comptetition or any other 1100 or 11-87. Bill Parson Jr.

    BPS 28 guage. Handles like a dream, very smooth, reliable, negligible recoil, safety is where it needs to be, holds enough shells for covey shooting, plenty of punch for what I hunt.

    870 special purpose with synthetic monte carlo stock with small pack of lead shot in the butt. It hits where I look whether my head is on the stock or not. John E.

    My 1100 I bought used in 1977 with two barrels. I have since added 2 more fixed choke barrels and shoot my registered trap as well as deer, ducks, geese and doves with it.

    Although I shoot it very little; I like my Winchester Model 50 trap. It just points good. But I use my Beretta 682 and my Super X-1 for most of my shooting. I wish the Model 50 had a modified choke; then I'd use it for sporting clays. Anyone got a barrel?? Ed

    This is going to sound crazy, but...my cheap-ass Stoeger Condor 12 gauge.

    Out of the box, that thing felt like it was made for me. I've killed more pheasants with it than I can count.

    Until I got nicer guns, I probably shot 5000 skeet targets with it.

    Its got a trigger like a Daisy Red Rider (though in all honesty, the Red Rider trigger might be a little smoother...)

    Crazy thing is, its only hiccupped a couple of times on me, and in both cases, I was able to figure out what was wrong and repair it myself.

    I second the Browning Double Auto followed closely by the Winchester Model 50 20 ga skeet gun.
