8) I shot the Browning BPS 10 this fall in ND. Love that state by the way!! I also have a 12 870 with a Hastings wadlock barrel shooting the 3 inch shells. Believe it or not, I think the 870 has a harder recoil shooting the 3 inch shells. I tend to stay with the BPS unless we're shooting ducks over close decoys. I even put some large shot through the ten a couple weeks back and they just dropped those big geese. Now, if I could afford one of those really good 3 1/2 inch gas 12 gauges, backbore the barrel a bit.........my BPS may not get used much!!!! Just my humble opinions here!!!!
