    Shot the F3 at a sporting clay shoot and LOVED it. Extremely well balanced and swung very smoothly. I actually hit more targets with it than I did my own gun. It fit extremely well out of the box.

    The triggers on an F3 are the best I've experienced.The fact that all options interchange without fitting is a big plus in my mind.

    I shot their unsingle at the Cardinal Classic and really liked it.

    Before I make a commitment, I'll have to shoot it more, o/u and the unsingle (especially 'caps).

    I currently have a prototype of the new Blaser F3. This gun is magnifacent. Rich Kaysa and Norbert really made a heck of a gun.

    There is another post on here talking about their customer service, might be worth reading. Didn't sound too great.

    I shot a round of sporting at the MO. State shoot this year and really like it. I've shot a few of high end O/U's (Perazzi and K guns) and have the trigger jobs done on my Berettas but the stock Blaser has one of the best triggers I've seen. I liked the balance and the gun was a very light kicker with the 1 1/8oz. Remington Handicaps I was shooting.

    Tried a o&u at the grand on doubles. Shot 6-8 pair without missing. Found it very well balanced, extremely nice triggers. Liked it allot.

    I shot one of the proto type traps at The Grand. It is impressive. Easy to change the balance. Nice wood, bbl. interchangeability. Light recoil Really could find nothing negative. Available in April '10 I believe

    On their website, they say that Blaser shotguns are magnum proof tested. What is magnum proof testing compared to proof testing? Neil

    Your expertise and ability to judge based on merit seems to be rather challenged! In other words, you should not make such butthead remarks. Preserve your dignity. Silence is golden in such a case.

    A friend shot the trap prototype at the Grand and loved it. I have been looking at the sporting clays model and it looks and feels great. Does anyone know if there will be any changes to the sporting model or is it just the trap? Has the sporting changed any since it was first brought out?

    I really do not care how beautiful the receiver is compared to how well the gun will function for me, as I currently shoot the 32" barrel set of an SKB trap combo for skeet. Several people told me before I bought that gun that they wouldn't have an SKB. That reasonably priced gun has served me very well for the last two years. I would now like to have another gun so I could use one for backup. I have thought of buying another SKB and having a tube set made for it, since I have had good luck with my last gun, but would like to keep my mind open to other brands. I have been concentrating on the DT10 and the Blaser because they are in my price range. I will have to shoot both before I will make a choice.

    Rich Kaysa shot one at the Texas Zone 5 in doubles and only shot a 98 I am sure aoit was the gun , but then again he could shoot a H& R .
