You're joking, right?

I like my Auto-5, but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Any London Best is better looking than an A-5.

Most of them are, IMO. The hump on the A5 just doesn't do anything for me.

It's a classic-I have one from 1993 or so-haven't shot it for years, kicks like a mule and I'm getting to be an old man. But she is beautiful.

Stoeger is making a new polished stainless sxs coach. It looks very cool/nice.

I really like my one owner 1955 Auto 5, but my Kreghoff K-80 with Super Scroll wood is best looking girl in my safe.

The Remington Model 11 is as nice.

Of course it's basically the same gun.:tongueout:

IIRC I think a couple other companies made shotguns based on this Browning design as well. Can't recall who they were off hand, think maybe Savage was one of em' but I'm not sure.

I do like Browning firearms very much, the beauty and polish is hard for me to resist... The old Browning high wall rifles are just a masterpiece too IMO, but to be honest any quality firearms strikes an emotion of lust for me... Me looking at nice firearms is like looking at a well rounded set of lumps and a juicy hump, it's hard to not like them for what they are -- even if they're not top $$ and for the aristocrat ...

I have a Rem 1100 made in 73'. I think it's a grade I as it has scrolling engraved on the reciever. High gloss finish on walnut stocks and bluing so deep it's black. It is beautiful...even though it's not Italian!

I like the smoother lines of the Ithaca and the excellent trigger... oops, still a Browning design.

Ithaca 37 is one of my favorite shotguns. Too bad they didn't catch on like the Remington 870 did, it'd be nice to have an aftermarket for them like the 870.

I didn't think so either.

With all due respect to the great John Browning. No. Not even close.

However another of his idea, the Superpose or over under is the form of shotgun that is beautiful as it is functional.

I agree. Wonder why it didn't catch on?

I have never owned a semi-automatic shotgun and I never will. I have never hunted with a person carrying a semi-automatic shotgun and I never will. I think that they are dangerous. MHO only.

Now, for a beautiful Browning, I think my BSS side-by-side 20 gauge with English stock is absolutely beautiful.

I have a Browning Silver Hunter that is beautiful. Not as nice as a Kreighoff, but not $10,000+ either.

Huh? What's your reasoning on this? Semi-auto shotguns are dangerous?!?

Yea I dont think he has hunted all that much at least not upland birds. I would say upward of 60% of the guys I hunt with use a semi.

Boys, I have hunted for 55 years. Mainly upland game birds. Mourning dove, white-wing dove, blue quail, bobwhite quail, pheasant, grouse, and prairie chicken. Duck, geese, and sandhill cranes. Turkey.

For geese and cranes I use a beautiful Model 12 pump 16 gauge. For all the rest, I use a double-barrel SxS 20 gauge. Have all my life.

I stand by my opinion.

What makes semi-autos dangerous though? Are you speaking about the people that wield semi-autos, or the shotguns themselves?
