Rem. 1100 28" Modified Vent Rib. (an oldie but goodie) Shooting 2 3/4" field loads (3 1/2-1 1/8) in either # 7 1/2 or # 9 shot. Later in the year I may switch to 3 3/4-1 1/4 for a few more yards range when they get more skitterish.

Most all animals breed for life. I guess you meant "mate for life." ;)
If they mate for life, it's only fair to kill both, right? And since you don't know which one is which mate, you should waste the whole covey (SP), right? So, we have a legitimate sporting need for automatic shotguns. ;)

Buzz: Good point! If only we could all be so lucky (to breed for life that is).
