    Probably the best buy available right now for a quality over and under. Really like mine.

    I've been wanting to try one too, although the rib is a little low. anyway, what I understand is that its being replaced with the new version of the 101. I noticed that Cabella's at Little Rock are clearance pricing the select to get rid of them. 2 weeks ago the had the select with 32" bbl's and adjustable comb on clearance price $1299.00 a bargain I thought, but as usual, I only had about $50.00 to my name...

    2 shooters at my club, I shot both well. I liked them. Some people dont like the looks. Felt good. For the price you cant buy a better NEW gun

    The "Sporting Clays" model has a narrower rib than the "Trap" model

    I have a Select Energy Sporting with 30" barrels and it shoots great. I also have a Browning Lightning Special Sporting Edition with 30" barrels and it shoots great as well. I am a one-eye shooter because my left eye is dominant and being a right-handed shooter that causes problems and unlike Piddy I have no trouble whatsoever with 30" barrels. I would be willing to part with one of them for a very fair price. Email me to discuss if you have an interest.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    A friend of mine with two teen daughters in the SCTP bought a pair of the 30" Select Trap guns for them. They IMMEDIATELY shot their lifetime best with them!

    I shot a round of Bunker with one of them, and they are fabulous. For ATA only, the 32" barrel is not too muzzle heavy. For other sports, I would consider the very lively 30" gun.

    The hard case is icing on the cake.

    I’ve had a trap model with 32 inch barrels for about 4 years now and i really like mine. the only complaint i have is when it gets cold the bottom barrel won't fire all the time. I’ve had it adjusted but it still misfires once in awhile.
