    Love the 16. Too bad they've fallen out of popularity. It's the right gauge between a 12 and a 20. May that coon RIP.

    may that coon rot!

    Single shot 16...my favorite weapon. Light, and you only need 1 shot​

    sometimes my dogs bring me squirrels and I think it would only be fair to feed them back to the chickens. All they do is steal their food!

    6:30 last night, still good and light out....my Sumatra's let out their "there is a threat" noise. I walked outside, and look at them in a tree.They are staring onto the ground. Screaming their threat call. I look over, and there is a coon, in the pen I had the 5 week old ducks in 10 minutes earlier. By the time I grabbed the shotgun, he was behind the house. The last thing the coon did, and he ate his last meal of corn.....

    It's the 1st coon I've even seen in 3 years since our last rabies epidemic . I was hoping they were all dead..... well there is one less now anyway...........

    I have an ithica 16 featherlite, my favorite gun. It is old (I believe 49 or 59, first year of production) it is my favorite upland, it is so light. Though I can't find 4's around here, and all 16 ammo is incredible expensive.
