    John, Why do you want a 20 ga for trap? There is a fella at the club selling a 20 ga O/u. I'm going to use it this Sunday for my ladies clinic. I'll let you know what it is and what he wants for it.

    Maclellan1911, see if you can locate a Ruger Red Label in 20 gauge. They come with choke tubes but you may have to buy a second Full tube if you want to shoot doubles. The safety can be easily modified to not operate automatically. You will probably have to add a cheek pad such as the Kick Eeze to raise the comb as these Red Labels are field guns, not trap or skeet guns. They are solid and reliable. I think most of them are 28" but they may also available in 30". I have one in 28 gauge that I modified as before, and in addition had to have the stock cut as I need to have a short stock. I paid $800 for it, used but in the original box and, even after the above modifications, I have only about $900 in it. The Ruger may not be as snootie-pootie as the $3000 and up guns but the 20 gauge will definitely do the job at 16 yards as well as the 12 will with only 1/2 the rcoil. A member of my gun club began having a real problem with recoil in his 12 gauge trap gun so he had Briley make a single 28 gauge tube for his $3,000 plus trap gun. He runs straights on 16s on a regular basis so don't let anyone denigrate your idea of using a 20 for 16s, you will not be under-gunned by any means. And the money you save on shot and powder using the 20 can be saved to let you buy one of the snootie-pootie guns later on. And the Ruger Red Labels have a very good resale value.

    PICK UP A USED 1100 STANDARD 20GA (NOT LT20) WITH A 28 OR 30 IN MOD OR FULL BARREL. 350 -500. ADD A USED 1100/1187 12GA TRAP STOCK (NO MODS NECESSARY)OR AN ADJUSTABLE COMB OR A CHEEK EASE PAD TO RAISE THE POI. VOILA...... 20 GA TRAP GUN CHEAP, SOFT SHOOTING AND DURABLE. A FRIEND OF MINE MADE ONE OF THESE FOR HIS DAUGHTER. SHE SHOOTS 25 STRAIGHT FROM THE 16 QUITE OFTEN.
