BDOG,

Give me #2,3, and 4 from your list and I'll be thrilled.

I'm pretty partial to SxS myself, and those fine old guns are hard to beat today.

ghrousseau: Not to jump threads but I saw you have a Darne. I was watching a Mexican "novela" (soap opera) while waiting for a patient to get done with a blood draw and in the course of the action, one of the actors dropped a prop gun down a flight of stairs. The gun? A Darne. I almost swallowed my stethescope. ~AMMOe

Yeah...................love that Darne action. I have handled some at Ivory Beads in Covina................he's got a nice 20 gauge in, but it's way above my price range.

I have a Savage Fox sxs 12 ga. and a 1917 Colt 45ACP that has had the rifling reamed out but for the last 1/2" of the barrel for firing cylinder length shot cartridges made from 30-06 brass. I can hit more with the COlt than I can with the Savage. I'm not much of a shotgunner, I'm afraid.

Seeing you specified cost is not a factor:

1. High (very high) grade Perazzi with 12, 20, 28 and 410 barrels, with spare trap stock and trap barrels

2. Winchester Model 21 SxS

3. The same old Remington Model 1100 that I've had for the last 20+ years with the Baker screw in chokes

Number 1 and 2 measured and cut to fit by a highly competent stockmaker. Number 3 left untouched because they couldn't make it fit and shoot any better than it does already.

There ain't a thing wrong with any of them. I don't need no high dollar conversation piece.

Nice trio of O/U's. What does the 12 bore weigh in at and are those 28" barrels?

The 12 and 20 are 28" barrels. I like the 28" barrels and the balance. The Ruger is a 26" bbl. According to Browning, they say that model (12 ga.) weighs in at 8 lbs 2 oz. I shoot a Franchi Peregrine O/U which is probably similar in weight and I don't notice it as long as the balance is good. The 12 ga. Citori is still unfired as of today.

those are some beautiful guns. I have a citori 20 ga and I love it, the next gun I buy is going to be a nice citori 12 guage, maybe a super grade.

For me it would be the two I have,
a Weatherby Orion 12ga O/U and a Beretta 3901RL 20 ga,

plus a Benelli SBE for super-schwackin' Big Bird.
