My foray into short tens was less than intoxicating. I had acquired a nice condition L C Smith 32", 10 ga., 00 grade, for little money. Tight as a widow woman's purse strings, but 10 plus pounds and very muzzle heavy. I reloaded for it successfully, even used it on ducks in AR, with bismuth loads, but it was just too cumbersome for me to keep in my stable. When I acquired my 32" HE Fox 12 soon afterwards I found how nicely a big, heavy duck gun could handle. If I ever went the way of short tens again it would likely be an English or European gun that would be lighter in weights and more suitably balanced.
