    I am taking a survey out of general interest of trapshooters and I will post the results on a different thread around christmas. Please put your singles choke constiction IC, Mod, Imod, ect. or your constriction in numbers 20", 35", ect. What kind of gun you shoot and your last years singles average. Please note if you have shot little targets or an excessive amount.

    I shoot the same model gun and same choke as you do Tony but my average is five points lower that your's. I think prob'ly you just shoot better than I do?

    Same gun/barrel/choke as for the last 37 years...870 TB, 30" Fixed Full, choked for smoke. Unfortunately, not all original anymore as I had to replace the receiver this summer when it cracked.

    Funny, I had one of the best seasons of my shooting life....a hundred, five fifties, and lots of smoke.

    I am using a BT-99 w/32" barrel, and a Browning IMOD choke tube. I just started shooting trap about a month and a half ago, just casual club stuff, so I have no average. I usually get 22-24 per round.

    I practice with my handicap choke (.032 with .745 barrel) and shoot with .022 for registered. Makes me work harder on my practice birds (head game?).

    Win Diamond Grade Un-Single with ex full choke. When I miss, there is no amount of lead and choke that will hit the bird.

    My son and I shoot a BT-99 and XT Unsingle.

    We both use Briley Light Full for singles.

    I shot about 500 rounds last year, he shot 7,000.

    I average about 84%, he averages 95%.

    Must be those young eyes and reflexes..... LoL

    I shoot an Infinity .740 bore & I use a Briley .015 extended choke, with STS factory load of 1 oz of 81/2 @ 1185--incinerates the targets. Will have to change to #8 now that its getting colder, may have to change choke then. But my primary setup has gotten me a lot of compliments from really good shooters.
