My favorite shotgun is an 1883 Charles Lancaster 12 bore, side lever, hammer gun. It was proofed for 2 3/4", 1 1/8oz loads but I mostly shoot 1oz or 7/8oz, 2 1/2" loads. My other shotguns have become safe queens. A buddy of mine said it best when he told me "with that gun, you look good even when you miss!"
