Over on the Migratory board they ran a question about favorite water fowl gun. So what is your favorite upland gun. Mine is a Browning Citori 16 gauge.

Beretta 686 Onyx Pro 28ga because the O/U allows only 2 shots and for me everything other than leaving it in the case is a waste of shells.

Old H&R Over & Under 12ga. that my mom bought my Dad in 1978 (I have the receipt, she paid $178) 26" barrel with imp cyl on top and modified on bottom. Stock has been shortened just a bit and has a nice Pachmeyer pad on it. I have several shotguns worth more but I have been shooting this one since 2004 and love it. I traded Dad an AMT stainless .30 carbine semi auto pistol for it back in 03 and then ended up getting the pistol back in July 2016 when dad passed. I would spend 10 times what the gun is worth to get it fixed if it ever broke.

I was using a 20 ga. Browning Citori for the last 16 seasons. With as jumpy and skittish as the birds have gotten, I pulled my Winchester 101 12 ga. this season. It has made a noticeable difference. I/C over I/C.

Ruger Red Label 28 gauge O/U 26" barrels skeet/skeet. Had a 28" but went to the 26" - believe it or not it makes a difference in the thick stuff where the woodcock hang out.

I have several I like to rotate but my current favorite two are:

LC Smith Field Grade 16 GA 26" barrels IC/Mod (I need to open up to SK/IC)

Benelli Ultra Light 20 GA 26" barrel I leave the IC choke in it most of the time.

But I am really wanting the new Browning A5 16 GA...a hunting buddy of mine got one and I got the chance to take a look a it last week...really nice balance, under 6 lbs...time to start saving! Or I could sell one of the other shotguns roflmao
