for sure!! Perazzis are known for their world class trap guns. As well they should be, given their price tag!!!

best way to buy an O/U is to find a good condition pre-owned Browning or Beretta. Many of mine are pre-owned. Amazing what's out there and at reasonable prices...

I´ve tried a Perazzi once, it wasn´t even set up for me but still shot like a dream but as you said, they´re mighty expensive. So I guess I´ll go with the Beretta if I can find one I can afford, I´ll have to check out the 2nd hand market also.

I like trap and skeet, but sporting clays is my favorite. I find all of them a challenge and lot of fun. But the greatest challenge, to me any way, is the extreme variation that you find in sporting clays. I shoot 12ga, 16ga, and 28ga.

I used to hunt upland birds and waterfowl. However, I don't anymore. I just hunt clays. Funny, though, I still haven't found a decent recipe to prepare them!

I agree. My favorite without a doubt is sporting clays. Skeet second and trap third. I find 16 yard standard trap the easiest of the three. international trap, now that's a different matter, as is international skeet...

I've done it several times and love shooting clays. I'm pretty sore after a morning of shooting. I don't have a sporting type shotgun so I always use my friends Browning 12ga o/u, and Barretta 20ga o/u.

I'm really looking for one of my own. I'm leaning, heavily towards a Rem. 11-87. I'd like to stay with an autoloader so it's more likely my wife would enjoy it, with a bit less punishing recoil. Now I just have to fine one or two.

I shoot clays in the dark. With a fully moded saiga 12 with a weapon light, on instant pull with 200 lumens. Its great for quick dark target location practice.

I use to do it a lot when I was younger (every fourth of July off the back deck), but since then I haven't really done it too much should probably get back into it.

As you can see by my avatar what my favorite brand of shotgun is!!

So, how many clay target shooters do we have out there!?!
Trap shooter, used to run a BT 99 and a Browning O/U XT Gold but I sold them because I just don't have the time to take it seriously anymore. Nowadays I shoot a old 870T with GORGEOUS wood and a Winchester 1897 and my scores are still as high as they used to plus I get a lot of interesting looks at the range when I shoot the '97

My wife shoots a BT-99 Golden clays and she's deadly with it.
