Nice! That would be a sweet little quail gun.

One of my friends Dad shoots sporting clays and skeet with us is deadly with his 28. He's got to be getting on to 80. I'll have to have him out to the new club when it finally opens....

I'm a 28 fan, and carry one on all quail hunts. Unfortunately, I'm pretty rough on a gun. You've got some lookers there for sure. I'm gonna keep an eye on that twenty.

Love my 28 ga 525 Golden Clays Browning.

I love a 28 gauge! Nothing like hunting with one!
I had the Browning Model 12's and hunted with the standard model.
Great field gun!
Now, I use either my 28 gauge Parker Reproduction side by side or my 28 gauge Browning Superposed for all upland game.
Nothing peels a pheasant from the sky like a 28 gauge and #6 shot!

When I was a kid, like most others I started with a 410, went up to the 28 gauge, then a 20, 16, and finally a 12 gauge. The gun I couldn't wait to hunt with...... After about one season, I went back to the 28 gauge for everything but waterfowl.
My Dad had a pair of semi auto Model 11-48 Remington skeet guns. One in 28 gauge and the other in 410. Man, could I shoot those guns!

I have a 28 gauge I have never shot. I hear they are fun, though.

I recently bought a 28ga Weatherby. I haven't got to hunt with it yet, but I did run few low and high brass through it. I think I'm going to really like it. First 28 I've owned.

IMO, there's 2 types of 28 gauge guys, those who own one, and those who will after they shoot one. IMO for most clay's games and hunting they are hard to beat...Really a great all around gauge for most people..

You are rotten.
I am trying scrape together all the excess nickels and dimes to take with me to the Wild Sheep Foundation convention in Reno next weekend and you dangle these carrots in front of me.

When in doubt, shoot low, they might be riding shetlands

Hopefully for me Dave, it doesn't end up like the Weatherby...

If that's the case, maybe I better bid on the Model 12 also

I am a fan of the 28 gauge. But I am not coordinated enough to chew gum and walk at the same time - much less take on multiple aerial targets with a pump.

I can use a semi-auto - O/U - or a SXS. I don't wish to step on toad67's cape - but if https://www.GunBroker.com/item/736683146 - had ejectors instead of extractors I would be bidding on that auction. But I am envious of those who can use a pump and toad67's is a real beauty.

Best Regards - AQH

I can make a pump run like a singer sowing machine. I've taken 3 quail out of a covey rise often enough and a few times a little better than that. However, I have been buying doubles and semi-autos lately, guess I'm getting old.

Been really wanting an English stocked SxS in 28ga, a real quality lite weight one.

I agree. A fine double needs ejectors. In my world, an English stock too.
Are the CZs built on 20 or 28 gauge frames? Wondering about the weight of them.
The pump on that Model 12 is like butter. You'll have 3 birds down and not remember pumping!

bought my grandson a 28ga double right after he was born, one of the remington/baikal that were floating around few years back. I have used it a few times to rabbitt hunt. I only wish now I had bought the over and under also. I love the gauge, the older I get the more my shoulder appreciates the 20 and the 28 gauges. low recoil similar to 410 with patter equal to or better than 20, I reload and use a one ounce load for hunting, those few extra pellets are great.
