    Do ya'll think I will hurt myself if I send my gun in (getting the top lever place, and maybe replacing everything on the trigger since it'll be there anyways), if I set up a gun that has very similar POI and shot that for 1-2 months (waiting for the gun to come back), or would it be best just not to shoot?

    Thanks,
    Ron

    Not shoot?

    Ha..my only concern would be that I would gain bad habits, or have to 'relearn' my gun that will be sent it.

    Never ever speak this way again. Now go out and shoot before it gets any worse.

    Just to make sure...It's better to shoot a replacement gun for 1-2 months while my main gun is in the shop, than not shoot 1-2 months while my main gun is in the shop?

    What kind of gun? If it's a Perazzi it wont take that long. They are very simple to tune up.

    Barry, but in my experiences, it takes about a month because of backlogs.

    If your vehicle needed a few hours work would you let them keep it for a month or two? I think not, talk to your gunsmith and see when you can send it or drop it off. It doesn't need to sit on his rack for 59 days and then get done in a day and hand it back. Ask for a spot in his schedule and even offer to pay a deposit to hold your spot and then get it to them a day or two early, If they are that busy and won't work with you go elsewhere.

    I send my stuff off to Giamco, really don't feel like taking a chance on a high-end gun.

    Seems to be commonplace, ts.com has more than their fair share.

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'hurt myself' but will assume you are worried about your scores dropping and dragging the average down. Could happen but so what? Shooting is about having fun - the numbers have no relation to the fun factor.

    But you should also know that a real trap shooter will have at least three good quality shotguns ready to go a all times. So if you don't have that type of back up redundancy then by all means it is time to go shopping for another trap gun.

    Find a similar Perazzi to the one you sent for tune-up. Shoot it while main gun is being repaired, then use it for a back up you can shoot with confidence.

    Well you need three because if/when one goes down you still have one to shoot and one for a back up. Okay so much for the cover story. Truth is you probably don't need three but there is this natural desire to have a collection of nice shotguns;)
