I have a ten gauge I use often in the spring. It kicks like a mule because it’s so light, but you’ll never notice it in the field. Getting it patterned is a different story, my dad shot it once and handed it back to me, while saying “that thing kills both ways”. I still know I shot it on Saturday morning.
