I do not like O/Us of any ilk, and for any kind of serious clay target shooting I would definitely get a gas semi auto. Before someone says you can do it all with a pump, you can, but It is not the easiest or preferred option. I would inquire how many really good clay shooters use one, other than for singles trap. You can drag race with a Yugo, but it's not quite the same thing.
What could have happened... did.
