28 Gauge

Stopped at the sporting goods store yesterday and i seen this sxs in the rack.It was a new Stoeger Uplander 28 gauge with imp.cyl/mod fixed chokes with 26" barrels.Felt great and swung real nice and the price was right at about $320.Was thinking this would make a good brush gun for rabbits.What do you guys think?Anyone ever use a 28 gauge

Re: 28 Gauge

I have a Remington 870 Express 28 gauge that my grandad bought me when I was 8 or 9 or so...........I killed a heck of a lot of squirrels and bunnies with that gun, and it is still one of my favorite guns to carry when hunting small game................

Re: 28 Gauge

One of the best shotgun gauges ever conceived. Throws nearly perfectly proportional patterns. Buy it, you will not be sorry.

Re: 28 Gauge

I have a Remington 1100 in 28 and killed many pheasants with it. I semi retired it when I switched to a 410

Re: 28 Gauge

I use a .28 sxs for much of my hunting and I shoot clays and skeet with it as well. It is more than enough gun for rabbits.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

28 gauge rocks! The only set back for me is the price of ammo.

Re: 28 Gauge

I shot my best trap score with a 28. I wish I would have kept the gun.

Is it more expensive than 410 ammo, the greatest rip-off of all time? The reason I ask is because I have some 28 ga. shells I may get rid of.
