    Go to this website and do some reading. It's more that just shooting twice. Bunker is the Fomula One of shotgun sports.

    Remember one item.... The voice call does not have any delay like CVR's. You call and ther trap fires.

    Thanks for the info. I do not know which shotgun to bring: a K-80 O/U (set up for American trap) or a Citori (set up for American skeet). Using IMOD&F. Chichay

    I dunno, Joe, I'd consider the K-80 but, if possible, drop the comb to where the gun would or could shoot flat. You'll want some choke on that skeet gun???. Chichay, why not bring them both.....breakemall

    I think I'll do that. Also found a Citori Sporting Clays O/U with 30" barrels and Invector+ chokes in the back of the safe! Chichay

    Just to add to the confusion between my two ears. Would a Sporting 32' 12 ga be good for bunker or should it be more Trap style be better. Pete G Dallas

    Any good Flat Shooting O/U that is choked something like .25/.35 will work. I believe the ideal bunker gun is a flat ribbed 29.5" O/U choked as above.

    rjh...

    I try to always mention to a new shooter that its 5 groups of 3 traps and you will get 2 lefts 1 Straight away and 3 rights off of each group. The traps are fixed so everyone sees the same bird.

    I think Tom Baber meant to type "2 lefts, 1 straightaway, and 2 rights" in describing the targets from each group in each round. The sequence for each shooter is controlled by computer so the shooter doesn't know which one will be thrown.
