My first post so apologies for any mistakes in forum etiquette. I would appreciate some advice please on choice of a 12 bore. I’m an inexperienced member of a syndicate on a walked up ( I think that’s the correct terminology?) pheasant shoot. I currently use a 20 bore Silver Pigeon with varying degrees of success. I’m constantly being told to get a 12 bore by the other members. Assuming I follow their advice, what should I consider? I intend to spend up to £3k. I have no bias towards any make or design features as I don’t yet know enough to know what difference these make. I’m embarrassed to admit that what the gun looks like is currently most important. With this in mind, I like the look of the Silver Pigeon V, Rizzini round body models and the Chapuis C35. I’ve asked the other syndicate members and have received as many suggestions as there are members. I would be grateful for any advice from the forum, I realise this is a question you must get asked all the time and if so, perhaps you could point me towards the appropriate thread.
