Shooting Gazette: Should I use a gun with shorter barrels for September partridge shooting?

In his Expert Instruction column in the Shooting Gazette, this month Adam gives an expert view on the question: ‘I normally shoot with 30″ barrels but should I use a gun with shorter barrels for September partridge shooting? I have struggled in the past to react to coveys bursting over hedgerows with the longer barrels.’
