here's a 20 I really enjoy shooting...

2010 Shot Show Special. White Lightning with 30" non-ported barrels. Installed a Pachmyar Decelerator SC200 recoil pad and added four Carlson's extended sporting clay choke tubes. Came with three flush cut Invector Plus chokes. This particular long barrel model balances so much better than the cataloged 12 or 20. Browning used a 1957 Superposed as the template for this gun, which also includes the engraving.

Just a fun gun to take out every now and then...

Nice looking gun ( you're just addicted to these 20ga's ....) ....

step back, think happy thoughts....close your eyes...and grin a little...

( and then think about a 28ga ...just a little ...).... ( maybe even a .410 ).

Jim, I had a relatively new 28 gauge Lightning. Sold it, the gun was too large for it's gauge. Same size as the 20's. Also, the 410 has the same frame size. Some day I may invest in a Beretta SP1 in 28, much smaller and more fun to shoot than the Browning...

On the range Thursday were two guys who just bought new 20ga Brownings O/U.

Must be contagious.
