    Does anyone have any opinions or comments about a Browning Lightning?

    Sorry, shotgun. Fixed chokes, modified and full. Looks to be in good condition.

    The Citori Lightning is unquestionably one of the best Over-Under gun-per-dollar values on the market. Well built, classic looks, and will last for the rest of your life if you take care of it properly. I like buying them used, shooting them for several years, then selling them for more than I paid.

    Richard: You didn't mention barrel length or how its fits you. Both factors are critical for trap. Most trap shooters prefer 30-34" barrels. 28 is OK for fooling around but if you get serious you will want something longer.

    The gun has a thirty inch barrel and seems to fit me well. At my advanced age I don't intend to get very serious about trap shooting, but I do want a gun that will allow me to enjoy the sport. Richard

    Are you talking about the Japan made Citori Lightning or Belgium made Superposed Lightning?

    It's the Belgium made, and I did buy it for better or worse.
