    A friend of mine has a beretta Onyx that I always borrow. Good for just about everything but geese, the 3 1/2 shells just kick too dang hard out of it. Love it for everything else!

    I'm with TJC...mine are all O/Us

    Most of the time, I use one of my 20ga Citoris. However, when strictly pheasant hunting, I will switch to one of my 16ga models.

    Totally love them!

    I have a DB, EAA, 12ga. made in russia, with 20" barrels, both IC., But the pattern is 'excellent.' I am very picky, but i highly reccomend this gun. Also have an old, very old, 12ga. DB, made by Savage/Stevens. it is a real work horse. use them both on rabbits to turkey. (not deer). I would prefere a different set up (shotgun wise) for this. That is just me. :)

    Mine's a Weatherby Orion OU in 12ga. It fits me and I hit more than I ever did with my Remington or Ithaca pumps.

    Iv'e had an Ithaca SKB M100 for 30 years. 20ga / 28" / M/F. I used it for everything from grouse to pheasants to ducks to geese.

    The only reason my hunting buddy and I switched to 12ga was to use up all the AA hulls we had from trap shooting.

    I almost bought a Ruger RL, but got a 1100LT 20ga instead (grouse and pheasant). I use 12 ga for ducks and geese now.

    So, the SKB is the only double I have. Very rarely use it anymore.
