Changing guns is a recipe for poor shooting for me. I follow the recipe every year! However, I generally shoot a gun I've chosen for a particular game bird until I begin to miss...then switch. I switch often.

PH 12 cpg/splinter for home field doves
(Quality U straight/splinter 12 as the back-up for doves)
Quality 4 Bernard barreled top action 12 for early Teal
DH 16 straight/splinter for MN grouse
GH O framed 16 for home covert Woodcock (factory cylinder choke in the right barrel)
EH 32" Damascus 10 for Fall season turkeys
Grade 3 Hammer 10 for the duck opener in MO
DHE 20 for wild quail in home covers
(AH 16 as the back-up for quail)
BHE 12 #1 frame for late season Kansas/OK quail and pheasant
CH Bernard 12 for the rare occasion I go for home field pheasants
CHE Bernard 16 for February end of season Appalachian grouse

I think you're correct on the changing guns thing .

BUT...……………………………………… ,

I've got so many I wanna shoot and always been relatively decent with whatever I pick up I say to the heck with it and shoot what ever suits my fancy .

Over the years there have been numerous times I went to the dove field with a SxS and an O/U and shot equally bad or well with them both !

Reggie, I frequently get an inferiority complex when hunting with my wife, dogs, and Parkers, all of which are so much better than I ever will be!

Charlie you should take the 8 gauge after some pheasants haha . Ive been researching what kind of birds can be hunted with 8 gauge in my state at least .

What kind of groundball are you using ? Ive found some .820 round balls that are 830grs I think .

I got out for the first time for this season this weekend. I used my 1905 DHE 16 with Damascus barrels. Doves, mostly Eurasians. I shot 16 boxes of shells for two days. This gun is flawless.
