4. A Beretta A400, just like Phil Bourjaily's
This may sound like heresy, and it probably is, but I'm tired of duck hunting with my 870. Don't get me wrong, I love my 870, and I'll never get rid of it. I traded a set of golf clubs for it when I was 16 years old and to this day it remains the best trade I ever made. I've killed a flyway's worth of ducks with it, but lately I've been really feeling the urge to try a softer-shooting gas auto. Don't ask me why. Maybe I'm getting old and soft. At $1,600, I won't even complain about not getting this one, but I can still dream, right?
