A 2 frame! Wow. That would make a fantastic waterfowler. Look forward to the stories this coming fall. I've been with Bruce Day when he used his light 10 on quail!

Now a 2 frame on quail ! That’s kinda Intresting , just so happens I have a factory original EH 2 frame 28” gun that’s choked cylinder and lite mod . If I’m not mistaken it’s the bottom gun in my avatar .

He and Charlie H and I were actually hunting pheasants in Kansas but a quail got up and Bruce took it with his 10 with a long crossing shot. I think it's a 2-frame.

They'd stone you to death for showing up on a South Texas quail hunt with a 10 ga.! I usually shoot an O frame 26" 16 ga. lite mod/IC or one of several pretty open choke 20s I have. Most of my group shoots 28s and razz me when I show up with a 16. Besides, to hunt quail with a 10 I'd want a gun bearer. Even this 2 frame is more than I want to carry in the brush.

Don't think that is true, Charlie. One of the many shotgun related "olde wive's tales." Research presented at one of the long ago PGCA annual meetings showed the 10-gauge never outsold the 12-gauge and by the late 1890s the 10-gauge market share had become miniscule.

That's certainly what the used gun market reflects. Seems like any time period I'm interested in buying you have to look harder for 10s while tripping over 12s. Many more 12s than small bores as well. I've personally seen 1 .410 hammer SxS, 0 28s, 0 20s, 2 16s and a boatload of 12s, a few 10s, an 8 and a 4. Granted I'm probably underexposed, just need to spend more time and $$ on my habit!.......My wife would disagree........at length.

The weight of the gun doesn't bother me as much as the weight of a box of the shells the EH 28" balances well , I'd have no issue using it from one of the quail deals you build . I've also got a Grade 0 top lever 10 2 barrel set on I believe a 2 frame , one of the barrels left the factory at 26" that one does very well on the skeet field so I'd not have an issue using it for a quail hunt as long as I was hunting from some sort of transportation .

Oh they're out there one just needs to be persistant . Lord knows I've found/acquired way more than I need of 10's and 16's

I still haven't figured out how many is "enough". I'm still chasing an 0 frame 26" 16 Damascus among others.
