I love mine. I have an 1100 and a couple of Benellis. I had the 1100 long before I had the Benellis and I must admit, it feels like a boat anchor by comparison.

I had a Remington 1100 that I sold. made me a price I could not pass on. Now I still got a Beretta 686. Great gun and there is nothing wrong with 28 g. They pattern very well. Limited range but a lot better than a .410. Shell are pricey but I got a Mec 600 JR that I reload with. Hulls are hard to come by so I buy case of AAs loaded and then reload. Very very fun gun make sure you buy one on a 28g frame or you are not getting the advantage.

When I was a child in the late 50s, I had a single barrel 28 gauge. Don't know what happened to it. Was expensive to shoot even back then and shells were not available in my small town. All i ever hunted back then was squirrels.

Shooting clays with a 20 gauge OU and a Mod 12 in 20 gauge. Might be in the market for a 28 soon. Have had two rotator cuff repairs on each shoulder. Ain't much good anymore. Gave my grandson a LT20 model 1100. Maybe I should ask for it back.

One of my favorites! Got a browning citori and a couple ringneck sxs.love sub gauges. Killed some doves with a 28 opening day. Fun to shoot skeet with too.

Browning 725 three barrel set in 20, 28 and 410. Since 28 shells are available everywhere here may have to using it in the field for more that sporting clays. lol

I knew a Pheasants Forever director that shot pheasants with a 28. Seems light to me for pheasant but it's all about shot placement and within range. I reckon lots of pheasants have been killed with a .410 also but probly a lot hit but not dropped too.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

28 Ga is my favorite round to shoot. I have three 28 gauge shotguns: a beretta A400 xplor action, a hatfield semi auto, and a tri star viper g2. Listed in the order that I prefer them in. I handload all of my shells and with 1 oz of lead shot I am at no disadvantage with doves, rabbits, pheasants, etc.

I also take piles of ducks and geese with the 28 with my steel/tss duplex loads. There's nothing you can do with a 10 gauge and steel shot that I can't do with my 28 and modern loading!

I like the hatfield because it has a 3" chamber. I can load 1 1/16 oz of bismuth in a 3" hull and have a great waterfowl load. The beretta is my favorite by far though, its an extremely fun gun to shoot.


Gotta live up to the nickname...
