    I have a hankerin for a good SxS... Sort of a nostalgic connection to the past.. My Grandfather who quit hunting the year I was born had an old Knickerbocker 12 that I have shot a little.. It is really not that safe to shoot as I later found out it has 2.5 inch chambers...

    I have hunted with a 10 ga SxS but that was given to a friend by his grandfather so I can't talk him out of it...

    The CZ Bobwhite G2 looks just about perfect! I want a 12 to mainly duck hunt with and want the screw in chokes and I want the English stock. Price is right also!

    Anyone have any experience? I do have a CZ Canvasback O/U 20 that seems to be well made although I have only shot one box of shells through it.

    I looked at the cz sharptail and felt it was a little heavy in the rear than in the front. Have not handled a cz bobwhite yet.
    I ended up settling on a Dickinson estate combo 20 & 28 gauge. If I had not picked up a Dickinson plantation at cabelas gun room. I would have bought a CZ

    Potroast has the Bobwhite in 12. He hunts everything from squirrels to rabbits, to ducks to turkeys with it from time to time. He loves it and shoots it well. I've tried it on the sporting clay range and I can't hit the broad side of a barn with it.

    I'm threatening a Bobwhite G2, as well, but haven't seen one available in 20, yet.

    Well I had my mind made up on a Fox Sterlingworth, but now that I've seen the CZ Bobwhite I don't know what to do! That's a good looking double barrel.

    What choke does your son use in his CZ for turkeys?

    One other benefit of the 12 guage Bobwhite is that the chokes are Bennelli/Beretta Mobil Chokes so my SBE chokes will work in it. I understand the other gauges are Huglu brand chokes.

    The 28 guage would be a sweet little gun at 5.5 lbs but 28 shells are higher then a cats back...

    Carlson's makes turkey tubes for it. He shoots factory full in one barrel and turkey tube in the other

    Well, I ordered a CZ Bobwhite g2 today. Supposed to be able to pick it up next Saturday, the place I ordered it from is closed during the week. Got on eBay and ordered a Carlson's turkey choke also. This is going to be a long week!
