    Hi Guys, Someone mentioned in another thread that broadribs are no good for handicap shooting. Is there a rationale behind this idea, or is it one man's opinion? Cheers-Graham.

    Some of my best handicap scores were shot with a Browning Broadway. When you're cookin' you don't see the rib anyway.

    There is no rationale, if you are looking at the rib you won't be hitting the target. HMB

    Thanks Guys, here in New Zealand 'caps was dead and buried, but there is a move to resurrect it, as shooting numbers fall. We still get 2 shots per target, but the only full/full choked guns around are old brownings.Cheers-Graham.

    I owned a Browning Broadway many years ago. When looking down the rib, things looked great. But, when shooting the gun, the very wide end of the rib became a wide front sight and I caught myself shooting off of the corners of the rib.

    A narrow rib appears to me to keep your vision aligned along a narrow plane to the front sight and the target.
