Bird Guns - Hunting Shotguns

For hunting birds, I believe it is hard to beat a fast-handling SxS 12ga. I know lots of people are using semi-auto shotguns now, but I still think there is a place for the SxS guns in the field. I find at least on my CZ Bobwhite that I am slightly faster to mount the gun than I am with other options. Share your hunting shotguns.

My 1996 Mossberg 500 12 gauge, purchased used for $250. I probably have more rounds through this gun than anything else. Broken a thousand or more clays and brought down a few birds in my custody.

Unfortunately it is difficult to carry in my tiny little hatchback, leading to this rather dubious transport case.

Currently I'm in the market for a Turkish over/under (with CZ/Huglu being quite interesting) or a Ruger Red Label. Have you had any experience with CZs warranty service for their Huglu shotguns?
 
My go to has been a FN made 3in 20 gage auto 5. That gun has killed more rabit, dove, And Dove, than I want to think about. I honestly like the polychoke that's on there. The guys I used to trap shoot with wouldn't let me use it anymore, said it was cheating some how.20210729_064322.jpg

I have a CZ Upland Ultralight in 12gauge for shooting occasional skeet, sporting clays, and partridge/ruffed grouse. I love it, no experience with warranty stuff because it has never broken. I'm not very fancy but it's nice for the $650 or so I paid for it. I love how little it weighs, since I'm carrying it a lot more than I'm shooting it and often in one hand while clambering over stuff or pushing aside branches.

A buddy bought a CZ Supreme something o/u ( can't remember the exact name) and it's REALLY nice. Was about $1350 if I recall, it's an impressive shotgun.

It took a longtime saving but I got my Beretta 486 Parallelo a couple years ago now. It’s in 20ga. Very lite and handy. Not too often I’m in the grouse woods without it. It’s been a great shotgun to me so far. C768D546-4C23-46FE-91A5-0C782504BE84.jpeg
