.005/.015, just about IC/MOD in a 16ga.
She's light, 6lb 2.8oz, 27" bbls, solid rib, POW round-knob grip - swings FAST! So far I'm loving it!

Beautiful gun, if we ever get to meet up and shoot, I wouldn't mind seeing it!

If we can get together to shoot, I'll bring it and you can shoot it - but it may be way short for you. I seem to recall a post about gorilla-length arms...

More like a chimp but yep. 6 foot tall with a 79 inch span. It's hard to find a gun that even comes close off the rack

About an hour farther than RKB is. I am all but due south about 1.5 hours from him.
