    Here's the scenario:

    Leaving to go to a game/meat shoot one evening at your local club. You have 3 guns to choose from, Ruger Red Label, Winchester 101, or a H&R Topper. These are all 12 ga's. You have but one load to shoot 1 1/4 oz 1330 fps shells. No modifications can be made to the gun or the shells. Which one would you pick and why?

    101. Its heavier and will probably live longer through the night shooting those loads. You'd probably be going to the doctor in the morning after using the Topper all night with those loads. Then again, my Win 840 single barrel hammer 12 gauge works pretty good from the fence, but it has a limb saver on it.

    Easy, the topper...there will be more pricey guns in attendance, and if you win, you can talk no end of shit about it.

    If those were my choices I wouldn't be into trapshooting.

    Now Brian, your missing(?) the spirit of the thread.

    I know how the Red Label feels shooting these loads, as I was fool hardy enough to do it in my younger, dumber days!

    FlaLagarto,

    I first started shooting games at B'burg with a 30" Red Label. I use to shoot big shells through that thing all day long and it didn't bother me, but that was years ago. Now, you couldn't pay me enough money. I don't think that there is a recoil system that will tame one down enough to make it tolerable.

    The 101, but fold a bath towel 4 times and hang it over your shoulder, then mount and shoot. After the shoot, you can use the towel to cry on, or hold the ice on the way home.

    I'd continue on to the club. Leave all the guns and shells in the car and have me some chili and a hot dog.

    I would pick the Perrazi cause it shoots that load farther.

    Whoops! Sorry.........a Perazzi wasn't a choice. I meant the Kreighoff.

    Jim,

    I lived in Michigan for a year here a while back. My house was the easiest to spot. I had a IU flag flying proudly in the front yard. My ex-wife is a alumnist of the University of Illinois. You don't think that added a little friction. He he he.

    The 101 of course..... since I'm one of the folks who can actually shoot one without suffering broken facial bones, loose teeth, a dislocated shoulder, brain damage, trapshooters elbow, gout, VD.......and don't forget world hunger, global warming, tsunamis, hordes of locusts, and all the other maladies and mayhem that those EVIL 101's are responsible for.



    KEEP SMOKIN' EM.... Dave
