Browning A5 Light Twelve
Since this category said to show off your guns, I will post just a couple of pictures of my favorite shotgun, a Browning Auto 5 Light Twelve, made in Belgium in 1971. I have tried to take good care with it and I would say that it is about 95%. I never use it in inclement weather, although it does become heavy in the field for small game. I have not hunted waterfowl for years. Most of the time I use my old Remington 870 Wingmaster .12 gauge for small game.

Love the old humpbacks! Got a sweet 16 I bought new in the 80"s, course its not belgium made, shot a lot of birds with it since. I've also got grandads rem 12 guage humpback with the poly choke. I see browning is going to come out with the sweet 16 again this year, plenty pricey!

Have hunted birds with both the Belgium and Japanese made versions. Loved them both. My favorite was the Light Twenty, the Japanese made gun. Thanks for the memories.

A class act shotgun right there and a classic. You have taken special care of it.
I stopped waterfowling when I stopped kidding myself and accepted that I didn't care for duck that much. Had to eat more bacon with it than duck.

Bought my Belgium made A-5 Browning with Vent Rib, Gold Trigger, 30 inch barrel with a Full Choke. in 1967 for 199.99 from J.L. Hudsons. I worked all Summer to earn the money. And that was a lot of money back then.
That Fall was when I started Waterfowl Hunting. Been at it ever since.
The old Browning resides mostly in the safe now having been replaced by my Benilli's. SBE II and their M1 (20 gauge).
Thanks for posting many memories brought back.
Maybe I will take her out to the skeet range tomorrow.

Thanks, I know by the serial number that it was made in 1971. It was purchased in Allentown Pennsylvania in 1972. I still have the receipt. The price was $272.00.
