Love my Winchester Model 37 and my Stevens over/under, both in .410 bore. Deadly.

I like using a slingshot and on the bright side there cheap to shoot.

I shoot an 870 left hand 20 gauge. I'm not a good shot either just buy lots of ammo and keep pumping and pulling the trigger when the rabbit comes by.

Franchi 20 or 28 gauge model 48 and an old L C Smith 16 gauge light weight, all three are extra nice, and easy carry all day long.

Over 45 yr ago my daddy bought me a 20 ga Ithaca. Had lots of guns since then but somehow that old gun always ends up in the truck. I guess you could say it just fits me.
Never a speck of rust and with some rem scrub on the gas ports never a failure to fire/eject. A durable little gun.
