    No doubt my favorite Shotgun is this: Browning Double Automatic Twentyweight (the weight of a twenty gauge) 12 Gauge Shotgun, Made in Belgium, Full Choke, Vented Rib W/ Gold Inlay and Walnut stock, Still in the original box with booklet and in the shipping box. 50 years old this year.
    When my Uncle who shot competition skeet gave me this it came with the following story: keep in mind he liked a good story and a tall cold one.
    When I learned of this gun coming out I ordered 2 one full choke and one modified the Browning Co. after making only 6 decided it was too costly and time consuming to make as a production gun so they made it special order only I have two of the original six made and want you to have one. (It was much longer as we sat drinking Millers long necks)
    I love this gun and the story and he did have two of them however long after he passed away RIP I learned a bit more about the gun then called Browning to learn more and run the numbers, They loved the story but said this one was made in 1967 maybe two years before I received it and long after they started making them and if it had been one of the first made it would be worth over 10k (in the 1990s) So Uncle Jack liked to embellish a little "alternative facts" so to speak but I loved hearing the stories while tipping back a tall cold one (or three) and left me a great shotgun (among other guns and items) and some very good memories to boot. Hope you enjoy.

      TY - I meant to add in the post how I plan to give it either to my nephew who I know better and collects guns or a 2nd cousin who has the same 1st and last name as my Uncle Jack (really John) and myself, If the later I would like to have all 3 names with dates engraved on it.
      Thanks for the Loves and comment bobby725 & Thomas

      That's a pretty fancy shotgun. Quite nice that it still has the box.
    3. PoliticalPinbacks PoliticalPinbacks, 4 years ago
      I think it was made mainly as a competition gun and a bit too fancy for hunting I used a more basic model when out in the sticks for fear of damage, I'm happy to still have both boxes still as the shipping box protects the box shown.

      Beautiful gun I had a Browning 10 guage pump action for goose hunting Magnum loads ,still feel the bruise on my shoulder lol.
    5. PoliticalPinbacks PoliticalPinbacks, 4 years ago
      10 gauge has a kick 10 gauge goose gun hell of a big kick, This one has next to no kick but won't work as a auto with a target load it needs more to cycle, I didn't (but will) put in the post that like most or all? from the date it was made in Belgium.

      Can't go wrong with the Remington 1100 this one is nice but maybe a little too nice for out in the woods the fine finish always made me worry too much so Likely a better skeet and trap gun as it's very light, has hardly any recoil and never jams up unless you try a target load it likes full brass, If it was all beat up I would feel better using it for all around although these days it's more home defense then anything and any 12 gage that won't jam is good for that.
      Thanks always good to hear from ya
