Yesterday I drove over near Washington Courthouse to a gun store looking for a couple barrels and a Sweet Sixteen. They did not have what I was looking for but while looking around a Browning BPS with straight stock caught my eye. It was the first time I had ever looked at one.Only thing kept me from buying it was it only had a 22 inch bbl. and it was made west of San Fransisco. Today I made a couple calls and I can order one in 16 gauge with a 24 inch bbl. But before I part with the coins I would like to know if anyone has one of these guns and how do you like it. is it reliable? Is it a new design or is it just another copy of the good old Remington 10/29/31. BTW, This was my first visit to this shop, folks there were friendly and helpfull.
