    What

    This has probably been done before and I missed it.

    What is your hunting shotgun, or if you could only have one what would it be?

    My only hunting shotgun is a 16 gauge model 12 Winchester that I love only second to my family and dog. Wouldn't sell it for anything.

    Mossberg 835. Multi purpose tool. I don't get sweaty if it falls in the swamp or gets scratched. It's ugly as hell but it works.

    In no particular order, whichever one strikes my fancy the day before the hunt:

    Stoeger Condor 12 gauge o/u (yes, this gun has a bad reputation, but I've shot thousands and thousands of rounds through this one, and it just keeps working, plus it fits me great and I've killed a LOT of pheasants with it.)

    Tri-Star Viper 12 gauge semi-auto (OK, yes, its junk...I won it at a Pheasants Forever banquet, but its soooo light weight and easy to carry.)

    Mossberg 500 12 gauge - Backup gun that doubles as a home defense gun.

    Ithaca 37 16 gauge - Almost identical to the gun my dad hunted with when I was a young lad. Saw it at a gun show and simply had to have it.

    Savage Stevens 311B 20 gauge SxS - Dad bought it for me when I was probably 10. Couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with it back then. I was sure the gun was faulty. Now it kills pheasants just fine. Amazing how much better it shoots now.

    For dove and quail, a Beretta BL4 or Silverhawk - both in 12ga.

    For duck, depends on how many kids are visiting - yeah I know I'm a total pushover, but love having them there...

    When I'm alone I shoot the Extrema2 (great gun)

    When one's home, I shoot my 870 magnum and let him shoot the Extrema.

    When two are here, I shoot the original sword-to-plowshare ugly 870 (bought it at a police selloff - still has "Medley PD" scratched on the receiver - and added a used 28" barrel) while the boys argue over the other two.

    Got a step-grandson starting this year. If all three show I may end up with a slingshot! Guess I better go shotgun shopping this summer...
