I have this one in 20 ga. I like it very much.dblcrona said:Hello,
I am new to this forum and would like to get into sporting clays. My club has a great course but I need a proper shotgun. Being new to the sport (I have shot a fair amount of trap in the past) I don't want to spend a small fortune on a Citori or similar only to find out that I don't want to do it very often. I would like to stay around $600 or less if possible. I would prefer an over under but would consider others as this will probably be my starter gun. I have looked at several over unders in this price range and the reviews have not been stellar. The Mossberg Silver Reserve had a lot of bad reveiws about firing pin problems, selector issues and apparently it breaks hard. The Stoeger Condor reviews made me cringe too. I did see some good reviews for the Stevens 512 which I really like. Can anyone speak to any of these? Does anyone have any other recommendations for an O/U or other action gun? Any input on choice of starter gun for a newbie would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
