Firefighter, I'm an inch taller than you and probably twice as fat, and I find the long barreled guns much slower to get after the bird. And while I believe in the long-barreled guns swing smoother theory. The guys that taught me how to hunt will already have the bird rolling in the air before you can get a long barreled gun to your shoulder. I had to learn to shoot my pheasants on their initial jump out of cover or I would not get a shot. I second the Fiocchi nickel #5's also. Baddest thing I've ever shot at Pheasants. 1-3/8ths Oz. These shells used to be called Waterfowl magnums before the steel shot laws came into effect.
