A few years ago I had the opportunity to shoot a round of clays with the 28ga Silver Pigeon. Hit 28 out of 50. I was happy as a priest in Boys Town! But, I understand your reluctance...

Actually thinkin' about ditchin' the O/U's this season in favor of a 20 ga auto.

Probably the one extra shell syndrome. After covering quite a few miles, its nice to have an extra shot at the covey rise.
I dont have a 20 ga auto at present but they look to be cheap enough.

makes allot of sense! Look at the 20ga Benelli Montefeltro! Best smaller bird gun on the planet, 6 pounds! It's the standard bird gun in Argentina, and that says allot...

you're going to waste the third shot anyway. But that BS and bravado. I could see that third shot coming into play in a covey rise, esp. if you have a late riser or two. I occasionally empty my 1187 when duck hunting as well.

Benelli's have a great reputation but I think they're kind of cheesy looking, plus aren't they recoil operated? I just think the Beretta 390/391 is a total slam dunk in today's semi-auto market; great looking, well made, light and gas operated.

There's a few good sources to search here:

Thanks KP.. Hell, Academy Sports has their 11/87's on for $600 this week here in SA. That may just be the ticket.

20ga.... I've got a 1100 in 12. Hey, another quick question........looking at buying an O/U Beretta (20) as well. Wondering about the barrel selectors? I've read their a PIA to operate.
Also, once the barrel is selected, do the 2 barrels fire sequentially or have to be manually selected between firing(s)? Make sense?

$600 bucks for an 11/87 is a no brainer! You can also find allot of nice used 1100's in any gauge for $500 too. Both superb for bird hunting. I like the Benellis because of their low maintenance. You never have to clean them. The 390 Beretta is also a great gun. I prefer it over the 391's because of a superior gas valve. Wally World has their own Beretta 390 in black plastic for around $500 bucks!!
