Arrow 357 for a 28 guage

Today I traded a Colt Trouper III 4" for a new CZ Ringneck SxS in 28 guage with case hardned reciever.

Ive been lookng at 28 guage for a while and already sit upon 12s, 20s, and 410s. My son was with me and questioned my sanity. I told him this will be my old man gun when the 12s and 20s are too much gun as I get old.

Good excuse huh. Anyone else have a 28 guage.

Have to wait till tomorrow for photos.

Ale-8(1) will become famous soon enough
My first shotgun was a Savage Model 220 single-shot in 28 gauge, Christmas 1956.

Still have it, still works fine.

Yeah . . . I'm old, but not that old. Thanks for the catch. Fixed.

Roger Norris is on a distinguished road
I hunt rabbits twice a week all winter...I have landed on the 28 gauge as the perfect bunny cartridge.

I had an 870 express in 28. Neat shotgun, but I sold it because I couldn't hit anything with it.....(Me, not the gun).

It was a tough winter at the Plymouth Colony with the passing of Miles Standish.

A 28 gauge is a good compromise and a fine field gun.

It was indeed. Fortunately, I had my 28-ga to help feed the group.
