Well I took another stab at it. For over 40 years I have tried various side by sides and o/u's and never warmed up to any of em. I rigged up a 12 guage Beretta with left hand furniture this year. Going to give it another go but the jury is still out. Seems to be an itch I just can't scratch.

Years ago, used a Winchester 101 for pheasants in Kansas. Outstanding double.

I use a s/s for dove and an o/u for pheasant tower shoots. I also own three autos and a pump, and I use them in poor weather and rough conditions, but a double of some type is always my first preference.

I'm not active in the field these days, but my 1969/70 30" 12ga Winchester 101 seems to have some kind of guidance system built in. I have several other shotguns, but when I do get the itch, I reach for the 101.

101 for dove, and looking for an O/U for ducks

SxS is a safe queen since I don't hunt quail any longer

I use a double for quail. I like to have the 3rd shot when dove and duck hunting though.

I have a couple of 12ga Uggies that fit pretty well. I’m going t order a 20ga Dickerson and the. Have all three fitted.

Love me some SXS.

I use one of the 12ga Uggies for pond hunting ducks when the weather is nice.

It doesn't bother me that I don't have a 3rd shell. I rarely miss and tripling ends the hunt too soon.
