First let me say I am a fan of 30" barrels but have a couple friends, one of whom is an engineer and extremely particular about balance and moi. He examined another friends 25" barreled 20 bore Purdey and measured moi. He described the gun as dynamic, not whippy at al and a delight to shoot. Don't judge it until you have had a chance to shoot it

This ain't a dress rehearsal
