No one buys nicer guns and then drags them through nastier cover than ruffed grouse hunters. Cabela’s new Plantation Grade Dickinson ($2,199; cabelas.com) is made for that abuse. A classic two-trigger double with a Turkish walnut stock and case-colored side plates, it is a beauty and a shooter. I tested the 28-gauge, which at 51⁄2 pounds is a wand you can carry in one hand all day while fending off briers with the other. At the skeet field I found it was surprisingly easy to hit with, at least on the first shot. Sharp-recoiling loads, like the 1300-fps Winchester Super Sporting ammo I used, can make follow-ups tricky with such a light, slim gun. But load sensibly, and it’ll be deadly on grouse and woodcock. —P.B.
