I use a Mossberg Silver Reserve. Nice trap gun for the money, Around $1000 new, can find nice used ones for $500 - $700

..Same shotgun I shoot 90% of the time for everything... a 1968 High Standard Flite king 12 ga pump, 30" barrel, standard (full) choke. The other shotgun in the cabinet is a 20ga Weatherby semi... Belongs to my son, but I shoot it occassionally.
I have owned a Remmy 1100 '93 model... and I have no complaints about that one either. My Brother In Law now owns that one.

I won $380 but if I had broken just one more bird it would have been $510...That's how it goes
Very good!

I've got a Browning 725 Trap model and my son uses a BT-99 with a Precision Fit stock.

In skeet, I believe the clays cross in front of you, left to right. So the clays are moving side to side but always the same distance away from the shooter.

In trap, I believe the clays come from behind the shooter overhead and moving away. The longer you wait to shoot, the further the clay gets from the shooter.
A single guy needs to take you on a Trap date!

Funny you mention golf, I was at the driving range with one of my friends a couple weeks ago (just watching). Want so bad to bring my shotgun next time, and try to shoot the balls down after they hit them. What a great idea to combine 2 sports.

LOL That's great. A friend of mine, former Capt., can't help being somewhere and trying to determine where to best place the artillary from his vantage point...

Readygirl, some friends of mine have been doing this for over ten years now. we call it SkeetGolf! one guy drives the ball downrange and another guy attempts to shoot it. much harder than it sounds. that golf ball is small and traveling fast!
