I am about to order a 12 gauge Uplander Supreme and am leaning toward the 26". I doubt I will shoot it much...I may hunt with it a little. It will be more for show and to fill a whole in my collection. I currently do not have a side by side and I think the Uplander Supreme provides alot of bang for the buck. I think the 26" would be a little handier to hunt with and also look a little better than the 28".
I would suggest the standard Uplander. Ejectors and single selective trigger in an inexpensive SxS isn't usually a good combination. If you search the net, you will see 10 times as many problems with the Supreme as the standard.
in a double gun that is going to be used for skeet trap or hunting ejectors may not be a good idea. unless your going to pop both barrels everytime. ejectors will toss the fired shell along with the unfired one.
on my side by side i opted for a model without auto-ejection. i often reload just one barrel. just depends on whats going to frustrate you more for me its picking up unfired shells.
