Please sell me on the 16 gauge. I had a 870 in 16g once and didn't care for it. To me it was like shooting a heavy 20g load or light 12g load. Or is it just a romantic thing.

That 870 was built on a 12 gauge frame and weighed a bit more than the 12 gauge. Once you shoot a true 16 gauge framed gun you will understand the magic. They are incredible pheasant, quail, hun, and grouse guns.

I really enjoyed my grandpas 16, but I don't know if I would want a new one because of the price and availability of shells.

Ok. I get that but the recoil was crazy.
I think one of my buddies have a 16g in a browning. I'll borrow it and try it out.

Nothing better than having the shot load of a heavy 20 ga. and the recoil of a heavy 12.
