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.
1984. Got it at a DU banquet.
bendlli sbe2. It is about 7 or 8 years old. I will not be getting a new gun anytime soon. I love this gun.
#6 lead shot, old full choke, and a black is the reward.
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.
I bought all three this year.
Savage Renegauge, Fabarm Waterfowler and a Mossy 930.
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.
Hmmm, I guess 0 years assuming my new Maxus 2 I pick up soon becomes the go to I expect it to. Some nice classics pictured in this thread guys!
