how many still shoot 26" bbls or less?

This is a discussion on how many still shoot 26" bbls or less? within the Skeet Shooting forums, part of the Shotgun Shooters Forum category; You bring it, I'll shoot it. Do I need to bring 410 ammo? I'm bringing about four flats of other stuff now!...

Me too. 28 in 3200 4 barrel set also. Bought a Benelli 828u about a month ago. Ordered a 28 in model but thy were out of stock so got a 26 in model. I wanted a light gun for my 80 yr young body and it really helped with sporting clays and skeet. I shoot 3/4oz at skeet and 1 oz at sporting clays. No recoil or reloading issues.

Hey gang, Glad to hear so many are still interested in the 26in barrel. I started out shooting skeet with an 870 wingmaster with a 26in barrel and had no tbl with hitting some of the targets I shot at. Now some 45yrs later I shoot a Citori 20ga 26in bbl and am still doing fine with it as well as my citori 12ga, but it has a 28in bbl. Can't get myself interested in the longer barrels at all. I just think back to all the tournaments that were won world wide with the 26in barrels on guns, why suddenly do people seem to think they need longer barrels than 28inches which is as far as I would go. Read on a forum not too long ago where someone asked how much farther would a 30in barrel gun shoot over a 28inch barrel...... wait for it ..... The response was 2inches further. Now that just floored me and I still get a kick out of it every time I think of it lol.
Cheers
Dutch

While my favorite skeet gun has 30 inch barrels, I have set up my old Rottweil for International Skeet. I find the longer barrel swings more smoothly, but for low mount skeet the shorter barrel on the Rottweil comes up faster and is more agile. The leather covered butt-pad reduces drag on the vest.

Winchester 96 O/U Skeet. 27 inch barrels. +- 140,000 rounds since it was bought in 1976. I would not object to longer barrels, but don't feel the need. lol

I enjoy shooting a Model 12 Skeet Grade with a 26" barrel.

My shotguns range from 21" barrels to 32" barrels. All lengths for different games and hunting scenarios. On my under & overs I prefer 28" barrels. Turkey-quail-deer. I like the 21"-22" barrels.
