I've got 5 B guns and my favorite is a ca. 1958 B-25 26" IC/M 12 ga. that was bought in Scotland for a driven grouse shoot. I'm the 3rd owner. What is your favorite?

I have two Lightweight Browning A-5's (12 and a 20) and the original receipt from 1960.

They are sort of retired.

Very nice - I have a 1958 Light 12 with a vented Poly Choke I got from a woman selling jewelry at the WAC gun show. It was her late husband's gun and she had no sons. I told her I would pass it on to one of my son's and she sold it to me for a reasonable price. I also have a 3" 12 gauge Auto 5 but it is in the process of being sold to one of my hunting buds in North Carolina. I'd love to find a vented 3" 20 gauge and a Sweet Sixteen but really don't need them. I always take the Light 12 as a back up gun on road trips and used it to kill a limit of roosters one day 2 years ago in South Dakota.

I inherited mine from my grandfather. I hunted (quail, dove, clay) with them for several years before "retiring" them.

My favorite is probably the Special Sporting Clays O/U. It's what I hunt with and used for everything except trap singles and handicap. In the picture below, there's a 20 ga. Lightning, a field grade Citori (my first O/U), the Special Sporting Clays, and a BT-99 Plus.


I inherited my grand-dad's Remington Model 11-A, built on the Browning patent. I added an A-5 Light but it really doesn't see much use. Shown below along with my dad's Rem 11-48.

Tex,
That is a very nice collection.

I have a C&R and have been looking for a new O/U.

I usually hunt (and shoot clays) with an old Winchester 50 Light Twelve.






Don't tell anyone, but I do have two modern plastic shotguns (Rems). I like 'em OK but don't take pictures of them. :D
