I am a Man of few guns. I have never collected and if one came in one usually left. I have had some good one's, but the favorites stayed. when I was young I was deadly on grouse with an old Remington model 17 pump 20ga., but I out grew it. several years ago I ran across a man trying to sale a gun for some quick cash, I picked up this gun and knew i had to have it, nothing ever has fit me as well. Well I didn't have the cash and he sold it to a friend who always treated guns like fashion and changed constantly. It broke my heart and I told him not to sale it without telling me, you guessed it he did! However, I knew the guy who traded for it and he was always cash strapped so at Christmas I got it off him for $300.00 in Christmas cash. I still have it 15 years later. It is a Penderson custom O/U 12 ga, with 26" barrells. I had choke tubes installed. It is a wing shooting gem, but I get chided constantly for taking a collectors item (they were last made in 1975)to the field.
My next favorite is my turkey gun, a browning gold classic hunter semi-auto 12ga., 3" chamber , 26'' barrels with invector tubes in the black synthetic stock. Never fails to oporate and has been a turkey killing machine.
