Re: Shotgun for Trap and Skeet
What JLA said. I have a ruger red label that I shot competition trap all through college with. I love that gun, every bit of it. Don't fall for the pump guns though tempting. Many trap and skeet ranges don't even allow them and if they do, you can only load 1 round at a time. none in the magazine. Stoeger Condors, Ithaca 500's, S&W elite series, CZ sporting and redhead (my new favorites) are some I could add to JLA's list. IMHO don't go 20ga. If your worried about recoil just shoot 7/8oz 8 shot shells. 20 ga and skeet will just set you up for frustration. Just ask my dad. He's been trying to shoot trap with his Browning 20ga SXS for years, he just don't have the hit ratio like he does with his SKB or his Superposed 12 gauges. Skeet he's good with it but its that distance thing that is a killer.
Only cowards shoot with their eyes closed....
