I will confess I bought my SKB 100 in an impulsive "I have nothing to wear" moment. I had been invited to the Ruffed Grouse Society's National Hunt and felt it was only appropriate to show up with a 20 gauge double. This gun, well used, appeared in the used rack at my local store at just the right time at a very low price. Made by SKB in Japan and imported by Ithaca in the '60s and '70s, the 100s were affordable and feather-light at about 5 ¾ pounds. It has fixed IC/M chokes in its 25-inch barrels and is a distinctly muzzle-light gun. Ordinarily I don't like a gun with short, light barrels, but for carrying a gun in your trigger hand while fending off branches with the other, a muzzle-light gun is perfect, and it points quickly in thick cover. Besides the aforementioned pistol grip and single trigger, it also has a giant orange plastic blob for a bead that Ithaca called its "Ray-Bar" sight, a kind of primitive fiber optic. I also used to it shoot the only snipe my old English setter, Ike, ever pointed, so I'm fond of it for that reason, too.
