How much is the effect on resale price and resale time of having short barrels on trap guns ?

Seems like on single-barrel guns that 34-inch barrels always sell faster than the shorter 32-inch guns.

And on over/unders the 32-inch guns sell faster than the shorter 30-inch guns ?

Thoughts ?

True

Because someone has been reading somewhere that the big boys shoot long barrels they decide their shooting will improve if they have a long barrel.

Most people would do better with shorter barrels

Same with the word magnum

Using your line of thought, we have the winner in Western Penna. He doesn't shoot much anylonger but last time I saw him at a Penna. State Shoot he was shooting a 56" barrel Ljutic..Yea, you read it right..56" And he shot it from a wheelchair. Mr. "Bat" Thomas. I'm sure many watched him in amazment.

There's always people out there that will buy what you want to sell. The secret to selling something is to get those people and that item together. Once you've been humiliated by a 15 year-old with a Mossberg 500 you'll realize that there's no gun better than another; there's just preferences.

Longer barrels allow for a nice consistant swing, if you rotate at the waist like you are supposed to. You move the gun with your arms, your going to have an inconsistant swing.

Longer barrels cause more misses if you are off the flight line because it is harder to correct with them

If you dont shoot all the time or are not one of the big boys you are going to be off the flight line quite a bit

Compare your scores- not your ego

This past weekend saw a young stranger with a short-barreled Rossi single-shot beat several experienced trap shooters on several turkey shoot squads.

Gene, with that philosiphy even though correctly on proper flight line, it would be easy to pull off prior to shot.

Hammer1, shoot and use what works best for you. The long barrel syndrome (34/35" single and 32" O/U) is a ploy used by many buyers to reduce cost...
