Convinced me into a over-under
 
I'm thinking to get a pump for bird hunting but convince me if an over-under or double barrel is better?

I prefer pump or auto.

Rugers9 07-05-2012 07:34 PM

I think I would to but I see an over-under and I just want it

mountainman13 07-05-2012 07:38 PM

If you're dead set on it get it.

LOL OK You answered your own question. They are sweet, and classic. Over/Under it should be then.

No question about it, get the over/under. The gun will feel more lively as the balance is between the hands as opposed to more weight out forward as in an auto or pump. The double in side by side or over/under is the classic bird gun. I would never be caught using anything else. It would be uncivilized.

I guess that gives me a reason to get 2 guns a pump for HD and a over-under or side by side for hunting.

I've hunted ducks and pheasant with a semit auto and an o/u...I love the o/u for upland game birds because of the tradition and style...but for ducks..being in the swamps with chest high water...synthetic auto all day long..
