Thank you so much! I just want to make sure i am doing everything I can to make sure my gun lasts me forever! I would use a shell catcher but I don’t reload yet (I really would like to).Hi Mack! Welcome to TS.com!
For my cleaning supplies, I like products made by Pro Shot. Their bronze brushes are the best, in my opinion.
I use Hoppes #9 for my bore solvent. Available just about everywhere. And I also use their Bore-Snake.
For gun oil, I use a product called "CLP" My latest bottle is from Mossy Oak. For gun grease, I use a product called STOS that I got when I bought a reloader
If your gun has choke tubes, be sure to keep them tight and remove them frequently. I had a couple get stuck in a Browning XT and they were a pain to get out. I use "Door Ease" stick lubricant on the threads.
I see you're wearing ear muffs and if they work for you, that's great. You really need to protect your hearing.
I uses molded ear plugs and they work well, but I always thought the foam earplugs like you can buy at the drug store did the best job.
I've lost enough hearing that I need closed captioning to watch TV and I wear hearing aids.
Eventually you'll need to replace a recoil pad. I like the ones made by Kick Eez.
For trap shooting, you'll eventually want a higher point of impact. You can get an inexpensive pad kit to go on the comb of your gun from Meadow Industries. Convert-a-stock pad, I think it's called. They work great.
That's plenty of information on what I like. Go have some fun shooting. It's been a great hobby and activity for me all through my life, from BB guns to Brownings!
Hello! I am a first year youth trap shooter and got a new shotgun 2 weeks ago. It is a Browning Special Sporting Clays Edition Citori (It is absolutely gorgeous). What accessories do you recommend for me. I plan on getting a magnetic barrel rest since the gun is heavy.
Please include links if possible to websites where i can get the item you are talking about.
Thank you so much!

Being that he said he's shooting a Citori O/U, I highly doubt that he'll have much use for a shell catcher.The shell catcher is also a courtesy to the shooters next to you so you dont hit them or their equipment.
As far as cleaning goes almost any products made for cleaning work as long as you actually use them. As in actually clean it .
I found having a few different colored lenses helpful, something to clean the lenses with, and a decent pouch or vest to hold a few extra shells in case you get a bad one from the factory.
Niow I am confused. You are shooting a Citori, what do you mean by "shell catcher"? Shell catchers go on semi-automatics that throw empties to the side.Thank you so much!

They “frown on it” for sure. Especially pump and semi-auto. Easier to police break action shotguns.Good to know. Thank you.
I hope they don't allow closing action before your turn to shoot either.
