    I no longer use trigger shoes, the last one I used went off and blew off two of my toes.

    Strictly personal preference. If you think it helps you, it will. I didn't like one on my 1100 Trap but I do use one on my Broadway.

    Have one on a Rem.LT-20 that I hunt with. Its Loc-Tited and fits well. Makes the slim Rem. trigger feel better. Would not use one on a trap gun with a release trigger though.

    I use a release on 1100's,a Perazzi TMX, and a BT-99. They vary in their set pressures. Adding anything mechanical to those triggers could upset what to me is a very precise operation.The thought of a trigger shoe repositioning itself due to vibration,wear,not enough bearing area for the lock screws,etc. is not an acceptable situation when shooting a release. Have not shot a trap house yet and don't want to probobly my main reason.

    You can use them on either a pull or a release.

    They don't come loose if you epoxy them in place. The shoe on my Browning has been epoxyed there since 1970.

    Eric, what expoxy did you use. Did you spread it inside the shoe slot??

    Flaketm,

    It was some two part epoxy mix like "two ton", you could also use "JB Weld" or even something like Crazy Glue and yes I did coat the inside of the shoe with the mix using a toothpick and then tightened up the set screws to lock everything in place. Because I like to modify things I painted the aluminum shoe with black auto touch up paint, looks very cool.

    Thanks again, Eric. I wonder if you could do just as well putting a touch of loctite on the set screws???

    Flaketm,

    I suppose you could but it depends on how wide the trigger is where the set screws tighten against. I think that I had to use the epoxy because the shoe on my Browning was originally on a Colt Python that I had so I modified it to fit the Browning.
