    Sorry about the misspell in the title .. its been a long week!

    After lots of thought and consideration TARGET SHOTGUNS, Inc. will be selling the BLASER (Pronounced blah-zer) as of now. The new trap guns will be available in January and we will have them for sale at the Dixie Grand.

    I have always liked the gun ... the sporting models are absolutely top notch. However the American Trap model (up until now) were pretty lame in the design department and the lack of release triggers just killed the deal for me. (Hear choruses of Handel's Messiah now...) Well, Norbert (formerly of Krieghoff and Rich from Alamo got together and with the BLASER folks have designed a truly awesome trap gun.

    • Adjustable ribs on both unsingle and double barrels. (Front adjustment ie.:K80)
    • True right and Left handed stocks available.
    • Factory release triggers (Yeah!) for those of us who need them.
    • Add a barrel to your single or o/u to make a combo for no more than the combo cost.
    • Internal weight and balance system to give you the feel you want. (up to 10lb!)
    • Long forcing cones, backbore barrels and great choke tubes with all guns.
    • Great looking wood even in standard grade guns, upgrades will make you weep!
    • Factory service and commitment to shooters equal to the best.

    If you have questions, email me or call 800-684-6329 toll free. I'll have a demo gun at Missouri for the Fall Handicap. Come and shoot one!

    Thanks. Bob Schultz / Target Shotguns, Inc.

    Bob, Is there a brand/model that the Blazer would be in main competition with as far as cost/features?

    I shot a demo at the grand and was very impressed. The gun handles very well and the triggers were excellent. I spoke with Norbert and Rich and they were both very pleased with the improvements made to this gun. I believe you will find it priced well below Perazzi and Kolar. My thought was I couldn't believe they could sell the gun for the money. It appears to be worth far more. The fit and finish are excellent, the quality of the wood is better then any of the top guns and the reciever and all internal parts are case hardened. They use a standard choke tube thread, I believe it was the same as Browning, so you can buy your tubes very reasonably. Give it a good look.

    The Blaser will be priced between the Caesar Guerini and the Perazzi,Kolar and KGuns. Combos will be in the 9K range which will include adjustable ribs on both barrels and really nice right or left hand wood.

    Norbert and Rich did not indicate any forthcoming changes in the sporting line. Since the Blaser shooters won the Mississippi, Texas and US Open championships I don't see much reason to mess with a winner...

    Any word on a PFS grip for this gun, either through Vern, or through Blaser themselves (last I knew, vern told me that he wasn't planning on producing a grip, but that blaser might make their own).

    I just bought a 34" LH Sporting Clays F3. I thought I would try it at doubles so I put a MC trap stock on the gun and tried it, man do I love the way this gun shoots. Nice sighting radius, low recoil and it smokes targets. I shot a 98 with it today.

    No, The picture is one I snagged from the current website. As soon as I get some pictures of the new gun I'll post them. The picture is a sporter.

    A friend has a Blaser sporting and I had a chance to put a couple of shells through it. Very nice handling gun. I thought I understood him to say that one of the changes Blaser was making was to eliminate the solid rib between the o/u barrels. I guess it would look similar to Krieghoff. Maybe that is just on the trap guns, he wasn't sure.

    I watched Joey O pick up his friends Blaser F3 in His class doubles event and he busted a 48 out of 50 with it right of the rack no advice where it shoots or any thing. Joe is just a beast in general also.

    The trap O/U will have the separated barrels ie.: K-80. The POI can be regulated for each barrel if one wishes to have say a higher POI in the bottom for the first shot in doubles. Adjustment is with barrel hangars in the front and spacer in the center.

    One of the features I really like is the internal stock balancer and the availability of tungsten barrel weights that fit on the barrels under the forearm. You can increase the overall weight and adjust the balance point relatively easily.

    I shot the unsingle at the Cardinal Classic...very easy to handle and a very soft shooter.

    I watched Joe and Aj shoot off for dubs champ on the last evening of the shoot.

    Those two put on an impressive show of speed and accuracy!

    I also had the Blaser Pro
    shoot on the squad ahead of me, he is a clays shooter but shot the 99 from the 20 in his first ATA shoot{he tried to get penalty yardage but management said no, I think he shot a 99 in the dubs also.

    Between traps Mack showed me the Blaser, seems like a well built gun.

    LOL, Shannon... I guess they had no idea who Tom Mack was......

    That's unfortunately a good example of how lax shoot management can be.

    Tom's a well known national Master class Sporting Clays shooter.
