    Benelli, Beretta or Briley Over and Under shotguns for trap

    • July 14, 2015 at 10:42 pm

      No way. Browning O/U rules. Unless you have a Belgium A-5.

      • July 15, 2015 at 9:51 am

        Lessee…Gun safe has A-5’s in 12, 2×16, and 20 ga. Plus a Remington “Pre-11″ which is their version of 12 ga A5; 30” full choke. Hold on!

    • July 14, 2015 at 11:11 pm

      Some reason you left out the quintessentially American “B” O/U, Browning?

      Benelli/Beretta = Caddy/Chevy (same corporate)

      Briley builds shotties now, or just fine tubes etc. for the above?

      Been out of the FFL biz for 10 years now, there’s a lot I haven’t kept up with.

      • July 14, 2015 at 11:38 pm

        Shot both Trap and Skeet, sucked at both big time.
        Bro-in-law (God rest his soul) had some really rare pieces along with what might be considered everyday, tried his best and gave up. Told me to stick with things that were scoped.

        Scoped is good. Just shooting for a different sport.

      • July 15, 2015 at 7:24 am

        1.5x scope or 1x red dot, lots of eye relief.
        Start with a caliber that you can buy tracers in, it’s hard as heck to hit those clays unless you can see where the bullet is going.

      my niece just did really well at the NH state trap shoot with a mossberg pump. I think she said she placed first in her class and her team placed first too. the New England Scholastic Clay Target Program and the tewkbury rod & gun club have been very good to her. at 19 she’s a “distinguished expert”…3 years ago she didn’t want to touch guns at all.

      • July 15, 2015 at 3:50 am

        Time to get that girl a decent shotgun. She could save tens of thousands of dollars with a shooting scholarship. A Mossberg 500 is a solid workhorse, but to be seriously competitive she needs a purpose-built gun. SCT is a great program. Glad she found it.

      • July 15, 2015 at 6:48 pm

        if she lived in NH, I would get her a great shotgun in a heartbeat. I already told her I would trade one of my 1866 trapdoor Springfields for it. problem is, she lives in MA. so, she needs an FID card, classes, ect and they make it as difficult as possible. local police are requiring her to take THEIR hunter safety course before they will sign off, which spans several weeks, covering topics she will never use.

    That’s great if you’re a fabulously wealthy online cartoonist. For the rest of us, it’s Remington, Mossberg and Savage.

      In my dreams, that is.

    • July 15, 2015 at 6:54 pm

      how about a Burgess Folding Shotgun?

      snap it out of the holster under your duster, bust 2 clays, and put it back in about the time it took to read this…

  • July 14, 2015 at 10:44 pm

    My old 1200 was good, my 870 is good, for some reason my son’s Maverick 88 is very good.

    I have an inherited Rem Model 50, recoil action semi auto, 12 ga. How well does it shoot trap? Don’t know, don’t care right now.

    Love the segue. “Junk” indeed. Can’t wait to see what “trap” Mr Muir springs on Mr Weiner. Hopefully it will cause him to lose his junque.

      For skeet: remington 1740
      I keep pulling the trigger long enough and i’ll hit something.

      (Set those skeet thingees onna fence post a few hundred yards
      away and i’ll shoot them just fine with rifle and iron sights.
      Just stop flying around like a gosh darned bird!)

  • July 15, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Thinking about the shouts of ‘Pull!’ from the range segueing to something with Weiner scares me….

    Intrigues me more…….

    High Arctic Ice, after the Sun has been up for a month, and the Polar bears are hunting. They regard humans as stupid seals…
    Helicopter Pilot _insisted_ that his Savage over&under, .22Hornet/.410 shotgun barrels, and ammo, go into my WWII surplus Canadian Army down-filled sleeping bag’s duffle bag, with the sleeping bag, so I may defend myself from a hungry Polar bear.
    I already kew the tale about why Polar bears all have yellow elbows = when sneaking up on a Seal, the Polar bear would crawl on his elbows thru the yellow snow, thus dying his fur… Oh, one paw over his black nose…
    For true safety, we hired an Inuit Hunter as my body guard, he got paid, got his ammo bought, and got to keep the entire bear as his bonus… Grin.

  • July 15, 2015 at 1:57 am

    Shot trap in the navy with an old Remington 870 riot gun. Only did it few times, no misses…ever.

    My then 14 year old son went to a class once with the only shotgun I owned at the time–a Savage Camper Special .22LR/20 ga. O/U utility gun. He hit just about everything with it. When he ran out of ammo old guys were rummaging around for more ammo to give him so he could keep it up.

    Ah, youth.

    Ruger has made some beautiful Trap and Skeet Shotguns over the yeas as well. But I’ll stick with my BT 99.

  • July 15, 2015 at 4:47 am

    During our academy shotgun training, a sgt with a Rem 870 (pulled from a patrol vehicle) out-shot a cpt. with a Purdy o/u (he had over 50 shotguns, and shot in international tournaments) on the trap range. And he did it with one hand. Really p.o.’ed the cpt.

    I have a Remington 1100 12ga with family value, a Mossberg 500 scoped 20ga “slug-gun” for deer (has a field barrel also), and an old rusty Ithaca 20ga (my fav). I shot “sporting clays” once and it was a BLAST but I needed more practice… I thought it a far superior option to Golf but similarly only for the well heeled and not the likes of me… I do have a clay pigeon cannon, and I love to shoot it when I can get enough people out to my property to shoot…

    As for the dork with the “junk selfie” addiction – I hope Mr. Elliot schools the boy…

    Be well all,

    • July 15, 2015 at 7:10 am

      The golfers and the course management **really** don’t like it when you combine skeet with drives from the tee. Especially when it’s someone else driving from the tee. It is more challenging than clay pigeons, though.

      • July 15, 2015 at 8:50 am

        Now *THAT* was one hilarious bit of dry wit, GWB. And truly such an exercise is a far better use of those well manicured acres.

    It’s said “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure; I guess one man’s junk is another man’s jewels.
    The comparisons reminded me of a line from ‘Mig Pilot: The Final Escape of Lieutenant Belenko’. It seems an instructor was asked which nation had better planes, them or us. There must not have been a commissar in the area since the instructor gave it to them straight. He said some of there planes were better in some ways, some of ours were better in some ways, but no matter what if they fought someone like Yeager they were going to lose.

      Just as you do not need to actually see the sodium go “kaboom” when it hits the water, you can know what Weiner is doing with that phone in private, without seeing it.

  • July 15, 2015 at 7:52 am

    I shot trap with a Model 1897 Winchester, 12 gauge, 26″ improved cylinder. I used to drive people nuts by doing doubles with the “’97 trigger trick”, holding the trigger back and working the pump; the hammer followed down and fired it because the ’97 of course was designed without a disconnector.

    One of my friends with a Browning Auto-5 wanted that ’97 very, very much. (He didn’t get it.)

    I finally traded it for a cherry S&W M20. Ended up selling it when my mother needed $$ for legal fees over father’s estate.

    Easy come, easy go.

    Well, I tried looking up what I thought was the story for the basis of what I THINK will be coming next. . . . .

    A hunter is lost in the deep (jungle? forest?) and is found by a wealthy and bored sportsman. The sportsman will take the hunter back to civilization, but he has to play a little “game” first. The two will hunt each other, (supposedly) with cameras. Turns out the hunter has the camera, and the sportsman has a real rifle.
    The hunter eventually wins, but it ain’t easy.

    I’ll stick with my Remington 870 Wingmaster, thank you very much. First shotgun I ever purchased. No choke. Specifically for trap/skeet shooting. It works just as well as my Browning for knocking clay out of the air.

    P.S. First time, long time. Love the toon.

  • July 15, 2015 at 12:05 pm

    I use an old black-powder side-by-side 12-bore in local trap. Not much choke in the barrels so my best is 7 out of 25, but it sure is fun to watch the smoke. Blinds the opposition a bit, which helps to level the field, so to speak. 😉

  • July 15, 2015 at 12:44 pm

    Shot trap at Long Binh Post in Nam. Shortly, chicom 120 mm rocket hit. Never knew the clays could soot back.

  • July 15, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    Shot both trap and skeet with a Rem 1100 and did quite well. Have the unofficial range ‘record’ for calling a “covey” (4 in a row, quick as possible) from the high house and dusting all of them from station 7 before they got 10′ out the gate.

    So I agree….whut’s this ‘Rem is shit’ talk.

    Chris you have GOT to post this ‘shootin’ match’ twixt Sam and Bill…..ya jus’ GOTTA!!!
