Gear: Weatherby Shotgun

Weatherby has been busy tweaking its Italian-made semiautomatic shotgun line, which was introduced early last year. There are five different Weatherby 12-guage models, including the Shadow Grass and Break-Up camouflage versions that match up well with waterfowlers. Upgrades include longer choke tubes and extended knurled surfaces on the screw-on end tube to make field changeover faster and easier; no wrench is required.
