Cowboy WHY IS THE 2 3/4 " SHOTSHELL NO GOOD ANYMORE?

In the past two months I've purchased two Model 1100 Remington shotguns in new condition. One standard model for $200.00 and an upland model with a straight stock and 21 inch barrel for $300.00. The owners lamented that they needed 3 1/2 inch guns to kill waterfowl. I really can't think of anything I couldn't kill at reasonable ranges with a 2 3/4 inch Hevishot load. How did we ever get any game in the good old days? I was forced to use a 16 gauge until I was in my 20's and never suffered. I used a 12 gauge blackpowder double just for fun for years too. I really like getting good guns for these prices, but how did we get into this state of affairs? God bless and good shooting.
