I don't have one of the newer 10s, bought the Ithica Mag 10 many years ago, and it is still killing geese for me every year.
Now I have a Beretta A400.
If I can drive to the spot I'm hunting, and if i will be shooting ducks as well as geese, I have both guns with me, but if I have to lug everything any distance by hand, the A400 does duty for both.
I will never sell the 10 ga. as it seems to me the geese come down just a little quicker with it over the 12ga......sometimes!
Early season birds come down with either gun, just like they hit the same wall.
So the words Fall and Autumn are not to be capitalized?
They are in my world.
