Which 28ga

Okay with a budget of around $800 would you buy a Franchi AL48, CZ Bobwhite, or CZ Woodcock?
This will be my first 28ga. Read several reviews and all of the these are good options.

I just went through this and I came down to three options:

Double barrel - Bobwhite
Auto - AL48 or A400
Pump - Ithaca 37

I bought a bobwhite off the classifieds here.

How do you like the Bobwhite?

I like it a lot. I haven’t hunted it as I ran out of time by the time I got it this season.

It’s light. It sits well on the knee. Two chokes, two triggers gives wide 20 yard pattern and tight 40-50 yard pattern at the slight readjusting of my finger.

I also have shot a 20 gauge CZ side by side for years now wing shooting so I was already familiar with the gun.

Cant speak for the turkey killing with the 48AL, but I can say that it's a light gun to carry and a dream for just about any wingshooting. Shot everything from quail up to ducks with it.

Get the semiautomatic!
The bronze colored Tristar semi is a excellent gun also
