I have been looking around the trap range. What are the advanatges/disadvantages of using an O/U as oppossed a single barrel for singles or handicap. Where I shoot mostly including me use a single barrel. Do people use a single barrel mostly because less weight?

Thanks,

Travis

One of the advantages (for me) to a O/U (and to a "bottom" or "un"-single) is that the recoil is directed primarily into the shoulder instead of over the top of it because the breech is lower in relation to the butt pad. So the felt recoil is less sharp and less punishing.

Many shooters shoot sporting clays with their trap guns. If this is something that you might like to do and want to use just one gun; the over/under is the only choice. (Or a semi-auto or a pump). The single limits you to shooting trap only and then only 16 yard and handicap. Ed

My thought is why rest with just 1 gun. Buy a O/U and a single barrel. That way you have an extra toy to play with.
