My only shotgun a plain 'ol Mossberg 500 12ga. Keep the 18" barrel on for HD duty and just swap on the 28" barrel for birds.....it does all my shotgun needs.

I would love to post pics but being decade impaired I don't know how to on this forum. If someone could explain it to me I would be grateful.

It's hell being old and dumb.

The gun that got me started on clays almost 40 years ago. Super X Model 1. Still in service occasionally, for those nostalgic moments......

Definitely the gun - it doesn't have rotator cuff, torn cartilage, arthritis burrs, and all that other good stuff like me to slow it down. Had the firing pins and a few springs replaced at 90,000 +/-, basically that's been it

It isn't a million rounder like Zippy's real nice Perazzi MX-8 above, but so far it has provided a lot of fun for the money spent

I gotta confess, the MX-8 is far from a million rounder, and has seen little use. I had it out for some trap (using the 20-ga tubes) about three years ago, it's mostly a safe queen.

While YOU may not have a million through it my friend, I know you know a certain young lady who has done that with hers before she retired it for a newer one (Kim)

The one thing about them, they were designed and built to go at least that far

Shotguns 11-10-08 015.jpg
Here are a pair of Browning Citori XT's - both 32" ..one with an upgraded stock. ( both 12ga ).

Shotguns 11-10-08 001.jpg
These are my primary guns for hunting, sporting clays and skeet. They're all Browning Citori XS Skeet models in 30" ( top one is a 12ga, then a 20ga, then a 28ga and a .410 )...


Shotguns 11-10-08 007.jpg
Here is an older model Citori BT-100 single barrel, 12ga, 32" ....its a Leo's special engraved model, mine is # 110 of 200 made by Browning.

Browning always did put nice wood on their XS series of guns, Jim, and yours are no exception - look great!

BTW, since I know you do woodworking - saw a woman at this tournament I attended with a light colored stock - thought it was maple, but it was beech with some fantastic grain and a dovetailed solid ebony grip cap. She said the company burned up three routers working the beech - I never knew it was that hard of a wood, but it showed me there are some nice alternatives to walnut
