    I agree with "THE UNLOADER"! I have called mine a great deal of names. Some in English, Spanish, and some that aren't even thought of yet! Mine has never talked to me until the day I sold it. I started shooting trap with a BT99 about three years ago. I had shot skeet for 10 years. I wanted a nicer gun. I bought a used Perazzi MX15 off of this website. I picked it up and had faith in it. I broke a 25 with it the day I got it. Broke some good scores, and like a dummy...I thought I would shoot better with something more expensive. Sold the Perazzi to my friend. The minute I sold it, I regretted it. When I handed the gun to him...I heard "Idiot Alert" in the air. Luckily he didn't like it, and I didn't like my newer gun. I bought it back from him last June. Won enough @ my State Shoot and Grand to cover my losses as a gun trader. I will never ever sell that gun. I might buy something different, but that ole' Perazzi will still be there. I turn to it and talk to it when I am down and out! LOL!

    You people who have relationships and conversations with your shotguns need some mental help. They're just metal and wood, Jeez.

    My mint Browning Medalist target pistol, on the other hand, does moan and complain to me constantly. But that's just because I refuse to let that sexy little be-hotch out of the safe ;)

    My firearms are rather quiet and obedient, but my progressive presses have a nagging habit of wanting to be constantly fed expensive components. :^)

    New eye glasses help.

    Wait a minute ........ Many of us have gone to great lengths to fit our shotguns to our individual body shapes, stances, mounts, etc. We may have many different swing dynamics, different leads, etc. We do this to make our trap guns an extension of our arms and eyes. If we shoot enough, we expect to hit every clay. So when you do lose a clay, your trap gun better be talking back to you, giving you feedback as to how you screwed up (it isn't the gun's fault!). How many times after a lost clay do you tell yourself, "I know exactly why I lost that bird!" It's because you felt the difference between that lost shot and all the other successful shots you've had. That 'felt difference' is your trap gun talking back to you.

    If you don't hear what your trap gun is telling you, you're not listening!

    I think we all have a special gun. Mine is a 1100 trap t 30" mod vr barrel mc stock, 1st gun I purchased in 40 years. Looked like crap. Got home started cleaning it found out it was coated in cosmoline. It took 5 hours to completely clean and check it. I was shooting 24's before heart problems. Now I'm over swinging with my lighter guns ,from lifting weights and exercising ,I hear it calling me back. Think I get it out this week. It's my second 1100, sold my 1st one 25 years ago, big mistake. Thank God I kept my dbl Fox. Still working on my 870 trap tb. My second favorite gun.

    Hearing a piece of metal and wood talking to you is a sign of dangerous mental heath. If I were you I would not post it hear. Someone might just go and tell Obamy and he will take all your talking voices away for good!!! LOL Just a thought. Break-em all. JEff

    All I ever hear from my gun is, "You suck, man, give it up." Or, "Who ever said you could shoot trap"?

    Or that lying *ss gun will say, "You can break this one"........Yeah, right.

    I can't be sure but I thought I've heard it snicker a time or two also.

    my guns can't quit laughing long enough to draw a decent breath to get a word out.

    The last time one said anything, it threatened to sue me for fraud.
