    Default 20 gauge shot gun, yup

    would love to be able to buy a Bennelli with a clear concious, not going to happen, as I only visit the duck blind for about 1 duck a year and can't justify a bennelli. So what is out there for a double that is affordable and reliable. I know 870's (which is my bail-out gun), but what double barrell is a decent gun for less than a house payment? CZ, Stoeger? Barretta is out of my league too. I want something that wont fall apart in my hands when I pulll the trigger for a dozen shots or so a year.
    I have 870's in 12 ga, want a 20 for less noise. So, dancing between a double or a pump. ?

    Mossberg has O/U and SxS doubles for anywhere from $475 MSRP on up. never shot one so I cant say anything about the quality.

    Just go the pump!!!Much more useable gun Mate!!!!
    I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    Talking Here's what I think !

    As much as it cost to hunt ducks , I'd have to shoot more than one a year in order to just hunt them .

    I love 12 gauges for ducks and geese and an a pump or auto hunter !

    Go used Red.

    I got a nice used semi-auto browning for less than a new pump.

    Got a few marks on it but I just beat it up in the goose blind anyway. Been using it for the last 3 years and it hasn't let me down yet.
