Noticed here recently that one member has sixteen 16 gauges. Got me wondering how many of these fine old shotguns our members have. How about posting how many you own. Myself, I only have two, though I have a relative that has quite a few side by sides I have my eye on.

Citori 525 28
FN hammer sidelock
Stevens 311, one 26 and one 28
Belgium made o/u
Ugartechea bboxlock
Simpson 30s vintage box lock
German guild sxs, boxlock
Marlin model 90
Ithaca 37r with polychoke
Winchester Model 1912
Winchester 37 single

Think thats all of them, sold a few 31s and sweet sixteens in the last couple years, maybe some others as well.

Ugartechea and FN get the most use. Have settled into a sxs dt as my go to set up for birds. Both have fairly open chokes, the right weight and fit me. 525 only comes out for hunt tests or when Im shooting clays, which isnt very often anymore.

Ive stagnated since my move a year ago. Need wife to get second job to support my habit:

New A5 28
2 - Marlin Mod 90 (26 ic/m and 26 m/f)
870 Express 28
BPS Upland Spcl 24
Citori White Lightening 28
870 wingmaster from early days 28
31L
31 standard, 1st version 28
2 - Win M12 (same year but different hardware during type change)

Seems to be it, traded early 37 standard and 311a away as part of getting a trap gun right before I moved.

I really only have one target left, a sporting model.

I'm likely sitting below par for the club, but they outnumber the other gauges. As they should.

Have been searching near and far for a double triggered, splinter forend, useable dimensions, not too heavy, classic looking side by side. Then I find one and my wife says no...Im about to quit asking.....😃

Mine are listed below. Sold a model 12 and gave away a 870 youth model in the last few years, but bought a Beretta and a A-5 Sweet, so I guess I'm holding steady. Still get the urge to add to the flock from time to time, but someone always beats me to the punch when I see one I really like!

My disease hasn't quite progressed as far as most of your's has, but it should! My wallet has me stuck at "two and a half"! It will be three once I finish up the L.C. Smith. That one has a bit more barrel weight and will become my duck gun of choice. The Fox and Lefever get used a heck of a lot. If the stable grew, they would feel neglected. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
