    Just saw my first Kolar unsingle last week and it seemed very heavy. Do all high end trap guns like P and K seem that heavy too? Thanks.

    it takes mass and good steel to absorb the constant pounding a trapgun recieves.

    a "heavy" gun that's properly balanced doesn't actually feel heavy.

    Not all of the high end guns are too heavy. My Perazzi is just great, and I do NOT like the weight of a Kolar!

    More than one thread here, and more than one qualified trap guru has recommended doing 100 gun mounts a night. Not only does it improve the consistancey of your gun mount, but after a few months you'll be able to shoot trap with a Buick.

    I've been doing it since last summer (the mounts, not shooting with a LaSabre) and now my old heavy 3200 feels like it only weighs 3 pounds.

    I don't know the weights, but a friend just got a KX-5 and it seems much lighter than my 90T.

    I like the way a heavy gun swings, with an easy follow through.
