    I am just getting started in shooting trap, so looking for a nice starter gun. Hopefully, it will be something I will really enjoy.
    I would like to find a Remington 1100 or 870tb
    Anyone have one they'd like to pass along to a good home for a good price?

    Thanks

    I have 3 kids shooting trap (19, 16, 14 ) The 19 year old will shoot anything you put in his hands. The 16 year old shoots nothing but a bt 99 34" w/ adjustable comb. The 14 year old shoots a Bps trap 30" w/ adjustable comb and has done very well with it and loves it I mite add. As you can see. diff. strokes for diff. folks. As mentioned before. Try a few of them out and see what you like the best. Me personally, its Browning all the way.

    I have been shooting for almost a year now and I tried a few guns from the club that I shoot at and decided on the Browning xt. I wanted to be able to shoot doubles and it looks and feels very solid. It also was in my price range for an entry level gun. My gun has an adjustable soft comb, a recoil reduction system, and a high viz front sight and it came with a hard case. I just shot my first 25 straight with it yesterday [twice]

    Kandi, while I don't own one, I see a number of very happy people with their Browning XT target guns and I'd assume there are a few that could be bought used as well. I've sent you some mail to review....Bob Dodd

    Great to see you starting to shoot trap. I look forward to seeing you at shoots. I agree with the posters that an 1100 is a great gun to try, I am loving the one you transfered for me, as are Browning BT99 or XT's.
    If anyone is in the Cincinnati area
    Jaegers Firearms (Harrison OH) is great for firearms transfers and for ordering guns and ammo.
