Friend just gave me 5 boxes of 3.5 12 gauge loads

Whew!
Seems he bought them for a new O/U 3.5 gun he just got, and then he fired off two. So now they are a fine addition to my Anti- ANTIFA home defense scheme.
Thought I might have to dip into my heavy goose loads in a pinch.
So the words Fall and Autumn are not to be capitalized?
They are in my world.

Psst...friends don't give friends 3 1/2" shells.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I have a Satin Citori I have been shooting now for the last 19 years. I tried shooting 3.5 shells one time through it, have not done so since. I like my shoulder too much!!

I’ve been shooting a Versamax for 5 years and I can’t tell the difference between 3” and 3.5”

This is the girly man forum. You may not feel the difference, but those of us with buttery soft, callus free hands sure do. :oops:

Back in the day when there was steel shot or nothing, a friend of mine bought a 10 gauge that fired 3.5s thinking volume and concussion would do the trick. :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: I honestly do not think he ever hit a bird. Understandably, he would flinch so bad that he was just spraying steel. He quietly went back to the 12 gauge. :yes: :lol3:

And to be honest, when hunting upland, I think I shoot better with a 16 or 20. :yes:
