So, bought a new Sweet 16 late Dec with 28" barrels because I was in a hurry and wanted to take to Texas dove hunting (which it came to late)
Walk into an old gun shop I may or may not have been in a thousand times, on Saturday, and there on shelf was 26' barrel sweet, damn thing jumped into my arms, so I took it home.
Now have two new ones, I like the 26" version very well, and I shot it well. (yes, took it on a clean -up hunt on Sunday)
Not sure what to do with the 28" plus have a 26" on order that should be coming in this month.

Having too many is almost as big a problem as having too little storage.

Pack up the unfired one and keep it for 10 years. then sell your collecter gun for the big money.

The concept of too many Sweet Sixteen does not compute in my head. I also have the new 28" and 26".

Decadently, I also have one of the new models in both barrel lengths. These new sweets have created a masss exodus from my cabinet... I'm even to the point that I'm going to sell my 1952 Belgian sweet because these new guns are all I want to shoot... if Browning comes out with a high grade. Ideal in the new sweet I'll have to have one of those too, I'm afraid!

Shot the new 26" at a clean-up hunt last weekend, I like it. Did miss one pheasant with though, although no fault of the gun, poor gun mount! But I like the gun. I thought it might be a smidge too long, but it isn't.
Need some choke tubes though, would like a skeet and a Light Modified for it.

Wonderfully light weight, will make an excellent prairie chicken/sharptail gun this fall!

taking it on another hunt Tuesday, along with my new Small Munsterlander, and again on a tower hunt next weekend and follow up clean up next day.

Hootch,

I added a skeet and LM tube to mine too. I use the LM almost exclusively for my hunting. I've found the LM is tight enough to cleanly take rabbits and pheasants at 40 yes but isn't so tight that it destroys game inside 20yds. You'll be glad you did, if you get a LM tube for your sweet.
