Once, I killed a gopher with a stick. It was about {...yey...} long.

28" or 30" for me.  I guess it's a combination of what feels comfortable for me and the fact that my formative shotgunning years were spent on a trap range where my 30" barreled gun was considered a sawed off.  I can shoot shorter guns, it's just not as comfortable.

With regards to the suspender discussion...I am counting the days till I reach an age where suspenders will no longer be considered inappropriate.  Despite being "full figured" as with all men in my family we have virtually no ass.  I buy shirts from Duluth Trading that are designed with long tails to combat plumber's crack.  If I wore standard shirts my continental divide would forever be on display.  

Of course if I wore skin tight blaze orange turtle necks maybe no one would notice my derriere.....hmmmm

Timmy, it just hit me why you were missing all those woodcock up here last fall. It must be those 30" tubes and that oversized LOP. I did see you get a couple grouse over a young dog with a short, stacked barreled, borrowed Browning though. What's with that?

and how many others did I miss with that crowbar earlier??

BTW that pair of  birds, over Riely is a memory I cherish .... he's a good dog. Looking forward to him this fall, all growed up

I'll stick with my 28" SxS 16ga with Skt1 and Skt1 (tubes) in it shooting #8s.

Backup is a 28" SxS 16ga with fixed Skt1 and Skt2.

It's not the size of your bait it's how you wigggle your worm.

But if the bait isnt big, there isnt much wiggle.

I'm guessin size really does matter.

It's more the motion of the hips and not so much the wiggle of the worm. If the worm is wiggling I think some pills are in order :laugh: .

Heck I have only hunted ruffed grouse a total of 4 days and I use short barreled guns. I have a CZ Bobwhite which I have used 99% of the time for upland and waterfowl with 26in barrels and an AYA XXV with 25in barrels that I just bought this year and will become my go to gun. I like short barreled guns so I don't get tangled up out here on the prairie when back in the thick stuff :laugh: . A short barreled gun is a good gun, but it takes some time getting used to, so it is not for everyone. They do need to be balanced well IMO for them to handle right but that is subjective and the balance each person likes differs from shooter to shooter.
