If you could only own one shotgun what would it be?


Recommended Posts

Imagine a world in which you could only own one shotgun, (terrible to think of I know). Which gun would you choose?

For this I'd suggest two scenarios: 

1. You have to choose a gun you currently own. In my case I'd have to pick my Beretta Upland. Can be used for everything from rough shooting to clays. Not too heavy and being a semi, soaks up most recoil and is an attractive looking gun. It may not be welcome on certain shoots but I could live with that. 

2. You can choose any gun with any budget. To be honest I'd still stick with the Upland. 

What would you go for and why?

1)   I have a 16 gauge Remington 1100 made circa 1960 and that would be my choice.

2)   It would be a 410 double ejector and with unlimited budget then one made for me personally. Do not need famcy wood or expensive engraving but it would have to fit like   a glove.

I'd stick with my camo k200 duck blind . I haven’t used any of my other shotguns since I bought it around five years ago . It's a cheapie , but it just does everything , from clay loads , to solid slugs.

Similar outcome to the last time we did this!:w00t:

I posted it the other way around last time 😂😂

maybe I should have chosen a Holland and Holland paradox that would have covered shooting everything from snipe to buffalo with the correct ammunition 🤔😉

On the grounds that everyone is entitled to one mistake, why is it never possible to get this right on the second purchase? Although I have had a couple of good 'uns, it's taken me nigh on 55 years to get it right and the stupid thing is the actual one which is right was available back then. The Webley and Scott 12 bore 702 based on the Churchill XXV.

Out of my current guns i would have to go for the sarasketa 12bore. Double trigger, non ejector so it's not likely to be letting me down.

If I could have anything I wanted I would probably go for a krieghoff K80

And don't you ever sell it or you'll have me to answer to.

I stupidly parted with my Charles Lancaster in 1972 to get one of the much hyped, hit anything you aimed at, highly fashionable over and under thingies.............regretted it every day since !. Stupid youthful folly in following fashion and believing all that is written. Thank the lord I didn't part with my W&S 700.

Listen to this man. 
I never followed myself and I am so glad I didn’t.

I am fortunate to have enough to choose from, including those new fangled thingies. These Lancaster “wrist breakers” are underrated and have been underpriced for a long time.

My head says I use my .410 mossberg moderated pump the most. For ratting, covid control near the cattle and deer vehicle collision humane dispatch.

My heart says my old Miroku, early 70's, sbs that has taken a lot of pigeons would be hardest to let go.
