    I know there are a few SxS enthusiasts out there--who are you and what do you shoot? I have two SKB 385 Sportings, one in 20 ga with 28 inch barrels, and one two barrel set, 20 and 28ga with 30 inch barrels. I have inserts for the 20 gauge in 28ga and .410 so I can shoot 4 gun skeet with them. I'd love to have a Winchester Model 21 some day, but probably won't happen.

    I like the look and feel of a side by side, but have never owned one. I no longer hunt and don't shoot the various shotgun sports, so I can't justify buying a nice one. However, I really want a Coach Gun with exposed hammers just for the fun and coolness factor.

    I have a Spainish made Stoeger Uplander 16ga that was built back in the 60s. I absolutely love that gun for upland birds. Barrels are shorter then most and it's effortless for me to point well.

    When I was shooting skeet I used a Ruger Red Label with 26 inch barrels, good skeet gun but couldn't hit the broad side of the barn when using it for trap. I made the mistake of letting my ex son-in-law use it the first time he shot trap and the little A-hole shot a 23 and a 24 with it. Traded it off a week later for an evil black gun.

    I do all my small game hunting with an old Savage Fox side by in 20 ga. I love those side by sides. just not that Ruger.

    I have a Stevens model 311A, 12 ga., it was my fathers gun, he bought it new in the early 60’s.
    Still my favorite trap shooting gun!
