Where did he get the sweet 16? I've been trying to find one for sell anywhere, and haven't seen one yet.

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

I use either my O/U Ruger Red Label 20 gauge, or my 12 gauge Browning 725 Citori Sporting with the palm swelling and ported barrels. Those were my babies when I use to shoot in shooting competitions back in the day. I ordered a dozen different Briley chokes for each from skeet chockes all the way up to Improved mods and diffusers. I only use them hunting doves...I have never hunted quail or pheasant, but I would much like to.

Beretta 390 20ga. light, no recoil and fits like a dream. This was given to me by a good friend and customer a few years ago.

Well, this will be my first Quail hunt, but I am going to use my Stevens 555 in 20. I shot better with it than I have ever with any other gun....

The beauty happens when you pull one up to your shoulder and pull the trigger...

But the fit and finish of a Belgium made Browning is second to none. They have their own beauty.

A5s draw both lovers and haters. Dad had one back in the day and loved it. I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it, and it felt clunky as heck to me. He had another in 12 gauge magnum - and it was a great turkey gun. The Belgian ones are definitely very well made.

I have a Belgian sweet 16, and a Jap light 20. I think both guns are of equal quality. I inherited the sweet 16 and bought the 20 in the 90's for $300 when Walmart quit carying Browning and clearanced them in Midland.

From what I understand the new Sweet 16's are made in Portugal
The new A-5's are built different from the old ones or they at least they feel different to me, I like the new ones

If you like the 28 gauge, take a look at the Rizzini models. I handled them at the DSC show and liked them greatly. I'm also a big fan of the 16 ga s/s, but don't currently own one, but maybe I'll fix that later this year. I also own and like my "Ugartechea SXS. English stock double triggers". It's a great handling gun.
