    I've only been shooting singles & handicap targets thus far. However, I want to start shooting doubles. I'm shooting a KS-5 Special but I also have a 682 o/u. Would I be better off getting a combo gun or should I just shoot the two different guns?

    My next dilema, I recently went through a major change in my build & I'm having trouble getting my gun to fit me again. Debating whether to go to a PFS or have someone custom fit a stock for me. I know there are a lot of PFS supporters on here but I have never shot one or know anyone with one.

    danimal: Regarding the fps, I too have been thinking of getting one for my 682ex as was fortunate to meet this week with a local gang of shooters who all have them, and after that 1 afternoon, I am now looking to get a good used one...Hope that will help you out with your decision...there are many good posts about the fps on this site..

    Danimal;

    Interesting parallel. I too shot a KS5 Special and a 680 o/u. For various reasons I had to start using a PFS on my Krieghoff. I also bought a PFS grip for my 680, thinking I'd just move the PFS mechanism over when I wanted to shoot doubles.

    Well, it didn't work out so well. I had to readjust the pfs when I swapped it between guns, and it was a big pain and it seemed like I never could duplicate the adjustments I needed.

    So, I bought a beretta combo, and put the PFS on it and it's a lot less stress and grief. The setup stays the same all the time. I'm not shooting the beretta unsingle anywhere near as well as I shot the krieghoff, but I'm hoping that will come in due time. I do miss the krieghoff trigger though - the beretta feels like a marshmallow compared to it.

    Danimal, one point. Are you sure your change is permanent. Might find yourself in the same posistion again? The PFS stocks are great. Get a grip for each gun and you will just have to switch the unit. Right down and mark your unit for the different guns.
