I’d say a (Ithaca) Lefever A Grade in 16ga but after all these years of looking I recently found and acquired one.

So, of course, nothing else would tempt me. 😉

I owned one of those in 20ga. Ithaca didn't make a lot of those A Grades. Nice guns, but rare enough that you do need to do some looking.

I never know what shotgun is going to cast its spell on me until I see it.

there is nothing I need, and nothing I am looking for, and that means less than nothing....

I am with Stan in a search for a British long barrel, fluid steel, hammer pigeon gun, 32" barrels a requirement. A while ago, I fulfilled my search for a British fluid steel, hammer pigeon gun. Unfortunately, my high condition bar in iron Whitworth Steel Purdey has the cursed 30" barrels, but I'll struggle along with it.

I was thinking of two or three guns to add to the collection, a Grant sidelever or just plain old sidelock, a nice English boxlock or a Parker VH 20 gauge.
But with the world situation now I am not looking to buy a 2 1/2" gun.
