You WILL like the BPS I guarantee you. I see that like me you're a south paw. When I got mine, it was because I couldn't find a left handed 870, or 11-87 when I had the money. My gun dealer suggested the Browning because it was ambidextrous. After I took it out a couple of times I was glad I listened to him! Mine's a 12 ga. 28", with 3" chamber. It is kinda heavy, but that helps me to swing through, like I'm s'posed to (got an issue with that sometimes). The wood is nicer than some other guns I've looked at, especially in this price range. But the one thing that I love is that to make it ambidextrous, Browning put a thumb safety on it, instead of a trigger guard safety.
Mine has hunted everything from doves to geese. I think it might be a little "clumsy" for dove, but that's just me. I hunt dove like that old joke about the guy who goes hunting for the first time and buys a shotgun and box of shells, and asks where the best dove fields are. A couple of hours later the guy comes back and asks, " what's the bag limit on doves?" When he is informed it's 12, he asks for 11 more boxes of shells.
According to the literature that I have your new shotty comes in at just under 8.5 pounds. Not a featherweight, but you knew that already. Congratulations on your new BPS.
