I prefer the higher end doubles and o/u's for trap and skeet anyway.

Hot, period. June is usually the hottest month of the year. It can hit 115, sometimes with regularity. In late June through early September the Monsoon arrives, (southerly air flow), and brings somewhat higher humidity. But it is nothing like the Midwest or the south. Then temps will usually remain in the low 100's. Our best weather is from mid October to early May. All but ideal for any kind of shooting.

That makes a lot of sense. I'm more the opposite, I love hunting, and I like competition shooting, but it isn't the same as hunting for me. Bottom line akers06 is right no matter the type of shooting sport as long as its fun.

Yes, fun should be a "given" but some guns make it easier to hit with and some are more challenging. We have a summer league for skeet which is just for fun.

Many people w high end O/U w tube sets have added dead mules to the rear and sliding weights to the front to keep muzzles down & tame the 12 ga. Is it any wonder why people are buying autos to literally lighten things up ? There is a $7 device that slips into receiver that prevents single shells from exiting the receiver. (one less to pick up). Must remove for doubles.

I picked up an 870 - 20 ga. W 28" for hunting and pure fun on the skeet & sporting clays fields. I don't know why but it seems like you earned it more when you break a double w a pump.
