Bought a CZ Supreme Field in the last year. Only quail hunted with it once but love it. Intend to use it waterfowl hunting some on top of other things. I really really like the 28 ga. Had an 1100 but it wasnít factory and had some issues, so I switched to a 2 pipe gun.

I love my 28. I shoot a remington 11-48 in 28 along with an ATI over/under in 28. The ATI would suprise you how it handles and shoots. I had a SxS in 28 and just couldn't get used to the swing and double triggers, it got traded off.

Welllllll it wasn't really ever supposed to be shot. My uncle came over one morning to take me dove hunting when I was about 9 and my dad was out of town, my mom opened the safe and that's what he picked hahaha we went to Walmart and got a box of shells. My dad wasn't to happy but he said I guess you have new gun take care of it I have been using it ever since he has a matching 20 and 12 ga and a matching model 42 .410. Kinda screwed up the collection but oh well it's been a good gun.

I feel the same way about it. Kind of like having a nice car and never driving it.

Red Label and CZ Sharptail. Since I could start getting steel for them they've seen a lot of time on the marshes hunting rail, and missing snipe. Great woodcock guns and no problem once our "chicken" season opens.

I've tossed the idea around for a CZ bobwhite in 28 gauge, what a sweet gun!, not sure what I'd use it for though...lol
Funny thing, 28 gauge shells were the last ones to disappear from our Walmart....

Anything you hunt with a shotgun, except maybe animals you'd be using buckshot or slugs to hunt. Besides who needs a reason to buy a new gun. It's not always a matter of need. laugh

And theyíll be the last to return as well.

Ruger O/U with the 28 inch barrel, and have used it for a lot of small game and a few ducks and geese when you could still use lead in Canada. Mostly hand load but Winchester one ounce load of 6 seems to kill just as well as the one ounce load in the 20. It says 1100 fps on the box but have not been able to tell much difference from the 1200 feet per second loads. A lot of old lead loads were pretty slow. I have used it on the sporing clays course a lot and could not tell much difference than the 12 if they were not throwing anything real long. Good gun and cheap to reload with the light loads. I had a foreign made one about 30 years ago but do not remember the name of it at this point.
