    What type of gun does everyone shoot for trap. Gauge, brand name etc. I shoot a 12 gauge Remington 1100. Very smooth and flowing, has quite a few rounds fired through it, but it still doesn't give up.

    I believe he wants to know what we shoot Gordon. As for me, I shoot my old Ithaca 4E single trap, but intend on buying a BT-99 soon, once I get the funds. I don't want to wear the trusty 'ol Ithaca out anymore than it already is. Plan on getting it redone...once I get the funds...again.

    Shoot what ever breaks targets for you, it's not the gun, it's all about the nut behind the wheel.

    Stay with the 1100! Most of the other hype about expensive O/Us is not warranted. Ed

    nothin but dust,
    I too am a Sub Junior, that is if I decide to shoot registered birds this year. I usually just score. I'm very happy with the gun I'm shooting, I've shot 25 one time and came very close many others. I had been shooting a Frachi 20 gauge, but my 'adoptive grandpa' said that if I shot his 1100, he'd load all the shells for me. My thought was I couldn't go wrong. Back here shot is about $20 a bag. The bad news is I'm still shooting that gun, with a Larkin soft comb, but my 'adoptive grandpa' is moving so were looking to invest in a RCBS Grand Reloader.

    Amy, stay with your gun but don't hesitate to try anything that looks interesting to you. Most trapshooters will let you shoot a round or two with their favorite gun if you're friendly, courteous, and interested in their ideas. Check out the ones for sale at a shoot and give any a test drive that interest you. You don't have to be truly interested in making a buy on a moments notice but I guarantee one of two of the ones you try this way will stand out as what you might want to beg for at Christmas and birthdays. We have a sub junior in our club that has gone through an 1100 field, 1100 Classic trap, BT-99, and now into an over/under. He's run 100 at registered short handicap and is as tough to compete with as any in the club...breakemall...Bob Dodd

    Where are you from, I'm from around Wyoming and was wondering if I know him. I do a lot of scoring at registerd shoots.

    Amy, good idea to address your remarks to an individual; I assume you're asking me about "Where are you from..." I'm from the sickeningly liberal Willamette Valley of Orygun and the young man and his dad are members at the Cottage Grove-Eugene Sportsmans Club but register birds at other relatively close venues. Good luck with your never ending search for a perfect target shotgun....breakemall....Bob Dodd
