    Sub gauge Success

    Guys, I know we all love our 12 gauges, and I do as well. I bought a CG a while back and it has 20 gauge, 28 gauge and 410 tubes in a vases set. I didn’t have a 20 ga and wanted to try one and got the other tubes as well.
    I went for quail yesterday and used the 28 gauge tubes for the first time. Holy cow with skeet chokes I couldn’t miss. Even out to 50-60 yards this thing pointed great and just was intuitive on the bird. My new favorite gauge. Took 65 birds in the morning with my friend and we split the kills equally.

    ‘’Used the 20 gauge to bust some mallard in the afternoon. Again spot on even with 1oz loads.

    If you haven’t tried a 28 gauge, I highly recommend it. If you do your part it won’t disappoint


    Here she is all cleaned up

    That’s the only gun I use for clays. Compete game changer. If you look at patterns and density the 28 is a solid performer.

        I'm assuming CG is Caesar Guerini. They make some beautiful shotguns. Congrats!

                Thank you. I am an auction house troll so when I’m bidding on a few collectibles I cannot resist a good old over offer sometimes. This one was a no brainer at the price I paid. I also scored a Merkel 12 ga from 1954 I believe but the double trigger totally screws me up.

                      When you shoot double trigger guns you "fan fire" the triggers. Pull the front trigger then let your finger slide off of it and go to the rear trigger. It is much easier and alot more comfortable this way. The trick is to use the middle tip of your trigger finger to pull the trigger instead of using the first joint. The transition to the rear trigger is effortless then. Shoot often and it becomes second nature.

                        It takes getting used to for sure and yes that’s the technique. I just never shot one before and when I first used it getting to the second trigger wasn’t intuitive. It’s a really nice old box lock. Freaking Germans, that locking lever is perfectly centered and the fore grip snicks into place like no other shotgun I have used.
