    410 is still my favorite but 28 runs it a not so close second. Jackie B.

    .

    Are the 20, 28, and 410 gauge Citori frames smaller than the 12 gauge frames ?

    I like all the smallbores just fine...really got into them with the 20 gauge in teh beginning.

    But I LOVE the 28 gauge Browning ...

    I just got lucky and added a 30" XS Skeet 28 gauge to my collection. Rare gun in that barell length...shoots like nothing I've ever owned.

    Best dove gun ever for an old geezer like me ..and really intimidates the 40 year old kids in my family with 12 gauges. They don't know it patterns like a 20 gauge...with hardly any kick. Plus I can carry a bunch of shells, they are so light, as is the gun.

    One of the skeet instructors at our range told me he shot his first 100 straight with a 28 gauge. I asked him if he had to keep only one gun (especially for bird hunting) what would it be...He said..he'd hate to have choose only one gun BUT it would have to be a 28 gauge...

    20's on the trap field with the 28 gauge isn't that difficult either....mostly a mental thing. After that it's just like everything else...

    Stan..

    My first introduction into clay targets many years ago, was a gentleman who came to the range and in his dress white shirt, dress shoes and a tie ran straight 100 skeet targets with a double barrel .410 bore. Still visualize that man today, and the shells he emptied into his dress work pants!
