My favorite has to be my W.&C. Scott Premier 16 gauge with 27” barrels choked Cyl/Mod at 5 lbs. 12ozs. I hunted for one for about 35 years before finding it. Greener said not one in five hundred English guns made was a 16 bore and I believe him. It handles like the proverbial Magic Wand. Sandlapper

Fun topic but this is a subjective as it gets I think. To many variables come into play to be able to say any specific gun is my favorite. Frankly, I love all my upland guns and each is my favorite for what I am grabbing them for. I guess I moved onto the camp of what characteristics my upland gun has, as opposed to make and model.

1912 Parker "O" frame 20-gauge double, choked IC/ M. A beautiful female woodcock it brought down over a liver-spotted pointing short haired spetter is stuffed, rising, and paired with a large springing buck mink I took off the Susquehanna River. This gun went dove and rabbit hunting this past season, too. Hate to say it has displaced just about every other shotgun.

I always thought Texas had decent fall/winter/spring stocked trout fisheries...but Walleyes are good eating!

I reach for my AYA #1 28 gauge for grouse and woodcock. For pheasants another AYA, 12 gauge model 53E.

Hate to say I don’t own 16.

My first grouse I took was with my dads little 20 gauge Trust & IBar side lock.

As another member stated, all my shotguns are my favorites.

Depends on where I'm hunting and what I'm hunting for. Overall, these days it's my Ugartecha 12 opened up to SK and SK.

I’m starting to believe Montana-North Dakota pheasant hunting is pretty specialized compared to a lot of you elsewhere. Our hunting is wide open country, with lots of draws and coulees, pothole ponds and huge grain fields. Our early season opens for Huns and Sharptail September first, Pheasant opens six weeks later. Birds hold tight at first, then wise up and flush wildly later unless it snows, then they hunker down. You can use a quick open choked twenty early, but you need at least one tighter choked barrel and maybe a little more punch for those late winter pheasants.
