It feels weird being down to a mere two scatterguns in the house after The Great Rationalization of 2012, but I think I kept a couple of good ones.
As much as I’ve been enjoying my new ARs, my Winchester 1300 is still Plan A for unexpected unpleasantness around the house, because everybody speaks gauge.
And here’s the Brownetta, a Browning B-80 that is a rebranded Beretta 303 that uses common Invector choke tubes. I tried doing the switch-barrel thing for a while with my Remington 1100, but eventually there was too much stuff to take on and put off between shooting clays and standing house guard duty. A dedicated clays gun really isn’t that much more expensive than getting a sporting barrel, and makes your life easier. I recommend it. This B-80 was about $350, and even though it’s got a few use dings and the magazine endcap had a lot of accumulated crud, it’s still pretty and runs fine. Plus the lightweight aluminum receiver gives the gun a degree of liveliness the 1100 never had, and it’s still easy on the shoulder after a morning of 5-stand.
