    I am looking for a good trap combo to shoot doubles and singles. I have been looking at the Browning unsingle combo. I need to keep price at 4000.00

    Take a look at the Joel Etchen 687 combo. I have one and wanted a Cynergy Combo but could not get one. I was at my club and a guy let me shoot his JE unsingle and I bough one the next day. Browning are good gun. But in the same price range the Beretta I think is a better deal.

    I suppose it wouldn't help to suggest buying any type of good used trap gun to get started with, and develop a better understanding of what you need/want. A good fitting 1000 dollar gun and 3 grand worth of extra practice will put alot more x's on the score sheet than a four grand gun and two boxes of shells a week. But buying guns and stuff is all part of the fun- Dan

    There's a great buy here being sold by Shooting Coach. MX8 Special for $4,000. This gun is worth more but that's what he wants for it. You'll never lose a dime on it, plus it's a beautiful example of a Perazzi, great wood an lifetime gun. If I bought it I would put $4,500. on it and get it.

    Seek it out here. Good luck, Barry.

    The main thing is that the gun fit you and that it feels like a part of your body. Adjustable combs and recoil pads can make almost any gun fit you. Try shooting as many different guns as you can. Look for that one that "just feels right". Take a hard look at used guns, as you will find there is some real great buys out there. Make sure you get any used gun checked out for wear and tear and alterations before you buy it. Good luck on your quest. Bill Malcolm

    Hi,I have to agree with Beretta687EELL go try the gun you think you want at a well stocked store before spending a dime.It is imperative that the gun fits YOU well and you like it.Each gun has a little different feel and this could make you pick one that "feels" better to you.You could go the the store wanting a Beretta and end up with a Browning.Good luck.

    How about a K80 combo the o/u barrel has a high rib and the top single has a moneymaker adjustable rib on it. Soft Touch stock double release triggers. I broke 100 straight doubles with this gun in 2005 at the Grand American and ended up 3rd after the shoot offs.
