    Have long had a thing for 16ga Model 12s, but its history makes that one a special treasure.

    It really is special to me. I have to decide what relative to pass it on to down the road. Will have to agree to never sell or trade it off. I have a few youngsters in the family who are bird hunters who are in contention.

    bendlli sbe2. It is about 7 or 8 years old. I will not be getting a new gun anytime soon. I love this gun.

    I used the same SBE1 for 20 years. Replaced in last season for an SBE3. The jury is still out on that decision.

    My first ducking shotgun was a 12 gauge LC Smith side by side that my grandfather let me borrow and he would never take it back when I tried to give it to him.
    Then I bought a Browning Citori Gold over & under in 1984. I used it until 1994 when I purchased my Benelli SBE and never looked back.
    The SBE is well worn( it has spent many hours on the bottom of my pirogue) but it still is a great gun, with my faithful Citori as my backup. Neither one has ever let me down.
    I have hunt in the marshes of LA most of my life, now hunting the prairie pot holes in the freezing temperatures in ND.

    Interested to read your thoughts on the Savage after a season or two.

    Current favorite is a 2013 Browning Maxus. It shoots like a dream. Did replace the shell catch two weeks ago at ~ 3000 rounds. Before that was the Mossberg 835 bought used in 2005.
