All my guns are double trigger, can't afford to upgrade to single or ejectors never Mind multichoke at the minute!...o/u and sxs so it depends on range and if it's incoming or outgoing. But in the real world you will go with the less choked barrel first

Shortly after acquiring a single trigger ejector, you'll find it stays in the cabinet as you prefer the one you have.

For going down the single trigger route I'll probably end up with a semi auto like a hatsan escort. All my guns are cheap but the only reason for that is it's what I can afford, I wouldn't be a reverse gun snob on people who love and buy expensive guns.... more power to them in fact! 

The old girl still worked today

And this was on the bottom barrel haha

Yep, if you can afford it, get it. If you've got it flaunt it. The thing is though, my post had nothing to do with snobs and their money or lack of it, but simply function. With the exception of high volume driven game or decoy pigeon shooting on a good, very good, day, I'll wager that after picking up 200+ empties an ejector (not to mention a self loader) begins to lose its charisma as does faffing about with a selector in a bit of a panic when you have left something at home that provides the instant cure. Function before fashion.

My Beretta has ejectors you can turn on and off simply with a screwdriver. Brilliant for switching between driven days and walked up etc. 

I remember watching one of the videos by TGS on YouTube and Jonny was reviewing/showing off a customer's EELL Beretta that had been given the custom works....can't remember who does it off hand but my word that gun was absolute filth! complete with straight hand stock and interestingly- double triggers, I really didn't expect that but it's lovely to see well respected maker still offering that option on an o/u custom job. Gorgeous stuff

Was it an A A Brown "Brown Beretta"? Although for me an "English" over and under should use an Anson rod on the fore-end. Not an inlet catch.

That's the very one!! Such a lovely piece.

Friend of mine was saying his neighbour lost a whole field of sown grass to crows and magpies becUse nobody was out over lockdown. They just lifted masses of shoots out by the roots, dug up seeds an all that. I went out today for a scout about in quite harsh winds and that was all I got.

As I'm sure you know (but for PW members who may not) lie that dead one on its back and its family and friends will come to the funeral. Set up a hide as for pigeons. Then you can set about them.

When I started shooting on my own licence back in 2003/4 My father in law had given me a few tips on shooting and his tip for magpies with a shotgun was if you were able to find the nests or juvenile birds around parents/older birds to shoot the young on the branches and the parents will literally almost fly straight down your barrel at you for doing it and you barely needed to do much more than fire the second barrel to get it as it came straight down the line of site. I took that story as a look back to his experiences and it happened to him at least once, not sure how much truth it would hold for shooting them regularly as they are a hard bird to get to shoot with a shotgun with how observant they are! Since my first shots with a shotgun as a teen with my neighbour that brings my magpie total to precisely 2! Haha
