Girlfriend & 28 gauge
We shoot sporting clays. She had been shooting an 11-87 (12 gauge) that I had cut down to fit her(she is small & slight build). It was too heavy & awkward for her to shoot well. I let her try my Citori 28 & she liked it, too much! So I had to buy her one as she shoots lefthanded(master eye thing) & I right. Had it cut down & cast changed for her. She loves it & we can use the same gauge shells! Yes,I know that you can't shoot sporting clays with a 28, but yes you can!
