This is a platform that must be able to excel on skeet, trap or sporting clays fields. I have been using a Baretta 391 gas gun w 28" barrel and Rhino ported choke. 2" I was at the range and several shooters had decked out Baretta 391 Tekmeys w weights in stock and cap - very soft shooting but they chose to use their O/U Blazers or 682 Baretta's. When I asked why, they said O/U swing smoother. The gas guns were too snappy even w mag extensions filled w springs or mercury. My longer tube is an attempt to duplicate that smooth swing. So I decided to start a thread and get some more opinions on the subject. Note: In the 1950s - ideal barrel for skeet was 26" and now it's 28 to 32" for more all around work n smoother swings.
