    A fine gun to start with. I bit light but that can be fixed.

    I got one for my gf and she loves it. We use 1 oz "weenie" loads and recoil does not bother her.

    I just got here a PFS stock for her birthday.

    There's a reason this gun is still going strong after all these years. Takes a whole lot of shooting to wear one out. You can hardly go to any trap range and not see one. Most people will let you try theirs if you ask. I think recoil is quite light in them despite the fact its a fairly light gun. For a step up, look at the Grade 3 guns Browning is offering this year. It really is a very good gun and few of us benefit by owning anything more expensive.

    Hi I have two BT-99 Golden clays guns. Believe me you can not buy a better gun for the money.The gun has been made since the early 1970s,an little has changed in the gun.I shoot a KX-5, but never gave up my BT-99. I shot the gun today, first time in weeks, an broke a 99 with it.Hope this helps you make the right choice Hank

    Just bought another BT through TS.com. Own 3... One is used as a "guest" gun for acquaintances, friends and family to use. Easy to learn with, comes with choke tubes and easy-in price point.

    BTs shoot relatively flat. Offered by Browning for 45 years...

    If the price is good you can,t go wrong . The BT-99 has been and will be the starter gun for years to come . It,s the Model-12 of the last ten years .

    What is your length of pull? I how much can you spend? I, like many of us, have guns for sale and you can not go wrong with a BT-99 as first gun. I say "first gun" because if you stay with the game, part of the game is the love of the guns and the desire to shoot, own and trade them.

    Know you price range and ask people at your club if you can shoot their BT-99. You will not be denied often as we like to see new blood on the line.

    Welcome, Scott
