    I shoot a K80 with 32 inch sporting barrels, (flat rib) and have a Monte Carlo Trap stock, but don't recall the number they reference it by. Shoots about 80/20. I have used it for 16 yard trap, skeet and Sporting, and it works good for me in all 3. Is it perfect for all, probably not, but it shoots where i look. I have also tried it this year for ATA Doubles and it works good there too.

    You need one of these. Right barrel Trap, middle barrel Skeet and Left barrel Sporting Clays. Or is it Right barrel Skeet, left barrel Trap and right barrel Sporting Clays? Or is it..............Heck, i can't remember now. :)

    I shoot a 34" MX-10 o/u for all the disciplines, like one of the other guys said, it shoots where I look.

    I have your best "all game" gun. Caesar Guerini Impact combo (32"/34"). Thinking about selling as I shoot a KX-5 near 90% of the time now. PM if interested.

    Best gun for the money is a Browning XS Special with a straight stock. You can shoot all games without putting a lot of money in a gun. Ray

    Krieghoff with what ever length of barrels you prefer for skeet/sporting clays, set of sub guage tubes and a 32-34 inch trap barrel. Also adj. comb and butt plate.

    A good runner for this might be a Benelli Super Sport. I shot one for trap and skeet a few years back and it did quite well for both disciplines. Itnwas designed with SC in mind, so I would think a good gun for your goals....Cya


    PS: you can use a shell catcher when shooting trap, then swing it out of the way for skeet & SC. Birch wood Casey makes a good one for that....

    Boy, do I have it wrong! I thought the only reason to shoot different games was to have a "need" for more guns. Jack

    I shoot all three with a CG Maxum Impact 32". Great gun, great balance, and has a great deal of adjustment. Love my Caesar Guerini.....

    Browning Citori 525 is what I shot all games with for quite a while until I got the XT.

    A Krieghoff O/U or a Win M21 SxS. As I get older am more inclined to lighter loads of 1 oz or less. Like the LW Kguns; the K32 Phantom or K80 LW. As light guns go, they are not really superlite, especially if nice wood. A M21 will weigh about same. Both durable target or live bird guns depending on set-up.

    A sporting clays model 30" will cover the three games,as long as you change chokes and dont mind a flat shooter for trap.
    Ive a 687 28"bbl,and shot straights in skeet/trap without much effort, and do aight in sporting also.

    There is no universally known "best gun". Everyone needs to find the one that suits them best. There are many excellent choices. My personal choice is a Krieghoff. However, the next guy may find he shoots a Perazzi better than anything else. I suggest you try as many as you can. Mike

    One of my favorites is a Remington 1100 with a Jack West stock and a 30" Rem Choke barrel. Wayne
