Advice- Trap
« on: April 25, 2013, 10:55:06 pm »
Next year my daughter will be in high school, and is anticipating joining the trap club. I am looking for advice on shotgun selection. I have never shot trap, and would like advice on gun selection. Good and bad of over/under, and of semi auto? Brands to stay away from?

Thanks,

Dan

    I have used a Mossberg 500 which is a pump and a Remington model 1100 which is semi auto and I loved them both.

    Go talk to the coach of the team. He should be able to gehelp with fitting and may be able to get a deal on a shotgun thru programs (school, NRA, gunclub, etc) If they  acan't help, at least they should be able to direct you locally.

    X2 on both of them.

    Talk to the coach, and I've used the same Mossberg 500 for the last 24years with no problems.
    I'd rather push a DODGE than drive a chevy or a ford!!!!!!

    Be advice right there.

    Not much of a shotgun fan myself but, I have a old Winchester 120 ranger(early version of the 1200 from what I understand) that with the bird barrel and a modified choke if you can't hit a clay with it it's you.

    After talking with her coaches, and other girls on her team, we decided on this:



    Beretta 12 gauge outlander. It is good for her as it comes from the factory with an adjustable length of pull. She shot it on Sunday, and did well.
