    Depends on the phase of the moon on the day the gun is shot. HMB

    I am on the National Development Team for trap, so I am going to go to California to get my gun fitted. What would you prefer Big Bore.

    Mike, if you can, you might advise olympic shooter to contact Allan Chubb, from his posts on the subject of "Bunker" sounds like he knows what he is talking about. AJ.

    Ok...dumb question. I understand that some of these birds are not typical rising targets, but wouldn't a flat rib sporty gun work? A 30" or 32" MX-8?
    Pardon my simplistic approach, but I've noticed a few people making quite a deal out of this bunker game.

    Setterman, Essentially, you are right. A fast, flat shooting P-gun is the ticket. Sporting guns may be fine.

    If you go to a serious bunker shoot, the predominant gun by far is an MX-8 with 29.5" barrels and a low flat rib. You do see some 32" barrels but seldom one shorter than the 29.5". And, they typically weigh in at 15.5 to 16.4.

    Regards, Jake

    i would be really tempted to buy the MX8 combo for sale on this page and put a PFS on it - that would make a sweet bunker gun.

    did you see bret erickson took silver in suhl. diamond took the gold. watch out for bret, he could do it this year, he's really shooting well.
