At Athlon Outdoors, we don’t like to sit behind cozy desks and write about how great the gun world is. As the name indicates, we’re outdoorsmen. We get out there and get after it. VP and Group Publisher Nick Seifert recently demonstrated this mantra to a “T” on a recent quail hunt.

Beretta 687 Silver Pigeon

Using the 20 gauge Beretta 687 Silver Pigeon shotgun, Seifert hit not one, but two 100 percent wild quail with some ridiculously fast shooting.

As for ammo, Seifert used 7 1/2 shot Remington Game Loads.

The Silver Pigeon, an over-under hunting shotgun, features two conical locking lugs at mid-action, right between the barrels. This gives the shotgun great locking strength and durability while keeping the action’s profile considerably lower.

The advantage, Beretta says, “is that the eye of the shooter is a lot closer to the plane of his supporting hand, resulting in a considerably better swing and hand-eye coordination.”
