for what??? a 12 can drop anything here in texas. Now if you lived up north and had residents on your spread, then a 10 might be a consideration. Even then you could still get by with a 12.

Well I just bought one a Browing bps pump and love it, its a little heavy and a little more expensive to shoot, but it kicks less than my 12ga 3 1/2 inch that I used to own. I guess the only real reason I got one is because no one else that I hunt with has one. I like to be diferent. :toofunny:

ive killed more birds with the ten than the twelve. more shot, less kick, better pattern. I prefer it, but shells are almost a dollar a piece... considering you dont need but 6 shells. :cool:

10 GUAGE

Postby WIDGEONATOR » Thu Aug 11, 2005 7:15 pm

I have a 10 and a 12 3 1/2. The 10 guage I have is a side by side 32" barrel both full chokes. It is like trying to swing a black lady with two big ass cheek's blockin your view. :oops: Bismuth is the only thing that patterns well out of it. I shoot BB's. The 12 guage 3 1/2 with the same rounds don't even come close. But my 12 guage only has a 28" barrel and I shoot a modified choke. It would probably go alot farther with the pattern master choke. The 10 is great for geese at 60, other than that it does not really serve a purpose.

Shot skeet with my browning bps the other day it was unreal we were throwing doubles and it was blowing up both skeet at about 30 yards out and the skeet were about 5 to 6 feet away form each other. A little costly but is was fun, cant wait till duck season I'll have em plucked and tenerized before they hit the water.

although the 12 3.5 is supposed to have similar ballistics I have seen the 10 do wonders on geese. The 12 with heavy shot is awsome
love to watch'em fold
