    Was shooting my 390 Beretta yesterday. It's kinda a backup trapgun for me. It is trap model with a release trigger. After about 15 shots, the gun would not fire. Just heard a "click". I wonder what's wrong, gun was clean, hardly ever fired. I suspect, but I'm sure somebody knows and can help me better:

    1. Something in trigger group broken. 2. Maybe Remington Gunclubs have extra hard primers. 3. I was careful not to set off extra targets via voice pull and slamming bolt shut. Maybe gun needs to be slammed shut to get into proper battery? 4. Maybe the area where bolt slides needs a little tri-flo or other kind of proper lube? 5. Are strong hammer springs required all else being equal when using a relese?

    If the bolt handle goes all the way forward, it is in battery. These guns are very easy to disassemble, take it apart, see if the trigger works, check the firing pin, there are a pair of braces on either side of the trigger assy. sometimes one of these breaks. All of these except if the trigger doesn't work are easy cheap home fixes.
