    Default 28ga in the sierra's

    What a great gauge for quail

    I love the balance of the Browning over/under, nimble and fast on target.

    You can carry more shells in vest (there about the size of tootsie rolls..lol)
    than 12ga and a lot lighter.

    Theres other good 28ga as well, just sharing my gun

    First mountain in the morning



    My view...lots of manzinita, buck brush and springs/ creeks = quail



    Big Sugar Pine and 28er



    noon time take

    Great pics of some very birdy cover and your manzanita bushes even have berries on them.I remember a day a few seasons back when our 28's had quite the day in quail hills.

    Robert our 28ers were dropping birds just pulling em out of the cases lol

    smoking hot barrels and low on shells is a good upland day!

    Your 28 sxs was even lighter than my browning, sweet gun man

    Creeks still have plenty of water for game

    I've hunted with SG and I must say he works quite well in the field.
