I have my grandfather's 16ga Ithaca 37R from 1953. He passed in 1987. I begged for it for years...my father finally gave it up when he moved to a retirement community.
So yeah...I also love this in between gauge....best of the bunch for small game as far as I'm concerned. I hope to have it out after squirrels this weekend in NH. Ammo is expensive comparatively speaking...but it is what it is.
