It's not the H&R, it was the caliber. I have a NEF 12 ga. That I take turkey hunting instead of my Wingmaster or A5. The Browning is a light 12 I got when my dad passed. Can't get rid of it and really don't want to shoot it. She's a safe queen now. I intend on getting more H&Rs in the near future. I like simple and reliable.
