Whats your favorite 20ga?

I'm a beater-gun kinda shot gun guy. Never even shot a semi & only a double/over-under maybe 1/2 dozen times. Why screw around with less? ;)

Coupla 870 Youth Express Magnums - one has the stock shimmed to fit me.

Works plenty good. ~$250 The Wingmaster series is pricier.

Prettier out there, but tough to beat.

But I'm an 870 snob .... :p

I like my H&R topper in 20 gauge. It's got a short short stock on it and points like a wand.

I'm thinking about acquiring another barrel for it that's 18 inches long with ghost ring sights in 20 gauge, and another in .357 or ..45 colt or something like that.

Browning Gold Hunter 20. By far the best shooter for me of all the 20's I have ever tried, and I have tried LOTS of them. LOL, I like my BGH better than some other 20's that cost more than my truck!!

When young I got snake bit by a 20. Or more like spider bit.

Shot a Parker small frame 20 for years and when I finally tried my mom's Superposed 12 discovered that the 20 had been kickin my teeth out all that time. Switched to 12 and never looked back.

I know that a properly fit, adequately weighted and sanely loaded 20 should be a joy to shoot but the memory lingers on.

Sooo......no favorite 20. Tho that Parker busted a lot of clays and filled the pot many times.

Mossy 500 given to me at 13 by my grandpa. It's currently sitting about 5 feet away from me!

Since I just traded off my Ithaca 20 Ga Featherweight for a 16 Ga. Stevens/Fox, I'd have to say my trusty old Stevens/Fox .20, which I preferred to the Ithaca anyway, so... good trade, eh?

Browning Ultra XS sporting 28" barrels with Briley Extended choke tubes.

Ruger Red Label fits me fine. Why pay more when a slightly used O/U fits great. Half the price of a new one.

Browning A-5 Light 20 circa 1969. It still looks mint and shoots like a dream. We won't even talk about how the value has appreciated!

I like my Win 1300 defender (the lady defender). I think it is the perfect home defense shotgun when loaded with .20 #3 shot magnums.
