    Default Browning BSS 20 ga.

    Well guys, I finally bought the gun I have been wanting ever since I sold one in the mid 1980's. I think I've posted my desire for another BSS on this site in the past. Now I'm going to have to sell a couple guns I don't use to pay for it but I'm happy to again have a BSS.

    I bought it on GunBroker and you can check it out on this link: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/754187314

    Nice gun, George.

    When/what will will this gun be used for? Dog training? Sharp tail? Looks like a fast mount gun...

    Curious.

    I'll do some hunting with it and probably use it mainly for field trials.

    Wow !! I have one just like yours George. Bought it because it didn't fit my tall lanky friend & he wanted to get rid of it. This was 30 years ago. Hardly use it tho. It certainly has appreciated in value. You made my day. Thanks. Another George. We met one day a few years back for lunch on my way thru going to Eureka pheasant hunting.

    I remember you well. You also got a Brittany, right? We need to get together for a hunt this fall.

    Yes. You have a good memory. Hunted last fall but there were virtually no birds in the area I hunt due to hail & ice. Also back issues prevented me hunting as I usually do. I only got 2 shots & missed both !! Unless we have a great hatch I'm not really very optimistic for this year. The pup is going to get some birds this summer. Keep in touch. The other George.

    Nasty, do you know what your BSS Sporter weighs? I can't find anything definite on the internet but from what I have found it should be approx. 6.5 to 6.75 lbs. I think that is about an idea weight. Heavy enough to absorb some recoil and not too heavy to carry. I'll have to weigh mine when I get it. I'm having it sent to my FFL in South Dakota so it will be 3+ weeks before I'm back and be able to pick it up. What I paid was more than I wanted to spend but this gun is like NIB. I've been seeing these Sporters going for over $2k.

    Congrats on your "new" BSS. I ha Sporter 2so that I used for years. Great gun reliable, tough and good shooter. Never had a problem or issue with it. I gifted it to my oldest son and he uses it quite a bit.

    I want to wish you many happy and healthy years shooting her.

    Best,

    Zeb. 6 lbs 11.9 oz. on my postal scale. I did put on a Kickeez Sporting pad on it. Haven't shot it enough to have an opinion on recoil. When I first got it I was really slaying woodcock. I have too many shotguns to get very good with any one of them.
