Just curious what guns you ladies shoot. After some trial and error I've found that so far, I like side-by-sides best. The balance works well for me and I love that straight stock. I'm a little unconventional though. lol.
My favorite shotgun is my Beretta Silverhawk. It's a 20g, and it feel so good. AND it's pretty. lol. It was a Christmas present from the hubby the first year we were married and he REALLY shouldn't have spent that much money. But, I'm glad he did.
I know some people would be appalled, but I take it rabbit hunting and duck hunting on the nicer days. It has some "character engravings" on the stock. But what's the use of owning a gun and never taking it out hunting, right? ;)
I just recently traded my Beretta 390 for a CZ Bobwhite in 12g. This is going to be my backup for my Silverhawk on the nastier weather days. I shot it for the first time last Saturday and it feels pretty good. The trigger pull is a little heavier on the front trigger so I'll have to get used to that, but it swings really nicely.
I also have a Ruger M77 in .270 that I use for deer hunting. It's a really nice rifle. It's been passed around my husband's family for years. He used it, then his sister did, now I am. And my husband gave me his old Browning lever-action .22. It's a very fun plinker.
