Re: 26 versus 28 in barrell

20 Gauge with 28 barrels. Still a light weight gun even with 28" plus the longer tubes will help keep your gun swinging on crossing shots. I bought my 20 gauge CZ Canvasback with 28" barrels as kind of a specialty, early season gun. Once I found Federal Prairie Storm this gun now covers all my hunti...

As far as "commands" or saying stuff to your dog...do what you feel you gotta do to handle your dog to win the thing. I'd advise not looking at it as commands but rather "helping" the dog - after all, we are the brains of the operation. It's hard to argue that less is likely better when it comes to...
