    What is the Life expectancy of Field Gun shooting trap?
    My friend started shooting Trap about 5 weeks ago and has already broke 25
    he has been averaging around 22-23 using an 35 year old field grade Beretta 12g and was wondering if he continues to use this gun for Trap, shooting only 50-75 rounds a week, will his gun hold up. The gun is very good condition.
    Thank you

    No reason it shouldn't outlast him with regular preventative maintenence.

    Shooting 2-3 rounds of Trap a week is usage that any shotgun should be able to handle.

    What kind of Beretta are we talking about? O/U? Semi Auto?

    Parts are available for most guns....break-em and replace-em. But more likely your friend will move on to a dedicated trap gun within a short time.
