I have read all the reviews on the Escort Supreme and for the most part, its reviews are as good as some of the best made guns available, overall. My other choice for a 20 was finding a good used Benelli M1 or a Benelli SL 80 but I like the Escort choice better. Thanks for your imput though.
The 20ga Escort has features that come with this gun right out of the box, not all found on other guns. These include, over bore barrel, black chome barrel, bolt and charge handle, sling swivels, flouresent front sight, quality recoil pad and white chorme bore with allow action. Thus nothing to worry about dealing with rust or problems with the recoil spring with it being on the magazine tube. Plus it fits and feels perfect which is a main consideration to me. In other words, I dont have to modify it. The Escorts are stocked with high grade Turkish walnut which as anyone knows, tends to split in certain pieces and grains of wood. My oldest high grade shotgun has some high grade wood and I have owned it long enough for it to aquire a split in the forearm.

They had a chromed sleeve (situated on the magazine tube) that you set one way for light loads and reversed it for magnum loads, somewhat like the friction ring arrangement on Browning A5's.

Good for him. How many rounds has he put through that gun? 10,000? 1000? 100? Two boxes? It's important, those details....

That pretty much sounds like the answer to my question might be; closer to two boxes than to 10,000 rounds...?
To answer your question: only on the internet. My friends all are smarter than I am....whereas on the forums, I seem to be in the 90th percentile.
Only on the internet will I find people who make statements that sound good at first reading but, when analyzed, have little actually useful meaning. (I take that back; Washington DC is one other place)
So, I try to ask questions...or make statements... that will either bring out important facts so the statement can demonstrate useful information, or show the statement for what it is; without much worth. It comes from my background, which developed highly analytical thinking.
