Not to be argumentative, I see 28ga. models disappearing from production lines. Ruger has dropped the 28ga. from the Red Label line, Mossberg dropped the 28ga. from the Silver Reserve line and only offer an Onyx Reserve SXS in 28ga. Remington only offers two versions of the 1100 in 28ga. Winchester brought back the 20ga, but not the 28ga. Of all the new shotguns offered for 2010 only Benelli offers a new 28ga. model. I remember when the gun stores had 28ga's on the shelf ready for purchase, but now they are special order items. I see O/U with both barrels offered in 12, 20, 410, but not in 28ga. If an O/U has a 28ga. barrel the other barrel is offered in 20ga.
28 gauge is less popular and getting harder to find, IMO.
Maybe this is just in my neck of the woods, I don't know.
