    Still lots 16ga shotguns about, I've got a couple Fair U/O, and a 1100 semi in 16ga, Browning has made a run of A5 sweet 16ga and I see 3-4 for sale up here in Canada.
    As for hunting Chukor, I've hunted them a bit up here in Canada on bird preserves, and several times 20 years ago in Marlborough, they are very quick and flighty, and I recall lots of walking, in very steep country, for very few shot's, and they disappeared down into the valley below, as a great rate of knots. offering few shooting chances.
    I take a light fast handling shotgun, that you shoot well with, Id likely take my 16ga fair or a SXS 20ga. I had a 28ga Franchi, horrible trigger, and had auto reset to safety on, that I detest, I like another, better quality 28ga for upland, they very light and fast to handle,
