To all you trap shooters , skeet shooters, and shotgun people in general.

I'M guessing/assuming that many of you are small game hunters and that you already have your favorite shotgun/shotguns. I'm also guessing you already have your favorite watch, and if you play golf...by now you have your favorite set of clubs.
