I once owned an Ithaca Flues model 2-E 20-bore with 26" barrels; it was a beautiful light weight little gun but I couldn't shoot the thing worth a dang, it was just too light. Had the same issue with a 28-bore VH Grade 00 framed Parker; it was just too light, and with both guns I became a "poke and shoot" gunner. These guns were so light I found myself just reacting and failing to remember basic shooting fundamentals. But that was 20 years ago, might appreciate that light weight now as 12-bores feel much heavier at age 70 than they did at 50.
