    What shotgun brand and model do you have to shoot skeet?

    Lately at the range people have been coming in with European and custom made skeet guns but I always fail to catch who manufactures them.

    Very nice guns though, I shot a under/over skeet shotgun last time out that was "custom" made. Puts my 870 to shame.

    I shoot a CZ Woodcock Deluxe in 20ga (O/U). I just shoot for fun and giggles, not real serious about it.

    Skeet gun

    For my money, in 12 and 20 ga, it's hard to beat a Beretta 3901. For a lot less than $1000 you get a gun that's easy to shoot, very reliable, and has very soft recoil. The 390 is nice, too, just a bit more expensive and a bit more involved to clean.

    I use my hunting gun for shooting skeet!
    Why would you need to use another?

    I usually use my Browning Citori 20ga, but I'll shoot skeet with any of my shotguns.

    skeet gun

    If you are just shooting skeet to sharpen your hunting skill any gun will do .
    If you are taking up skeet for the sport best use a gun designed with the correct choke and length for skeet . I have used a Ithica skb model 6oo 12 ga. and Browning superposed 12 ga and shot 100 straight with both . good luck

    I'm just getting into Trap, Skeet and Sport Clays. I bought a Fausti Stefano O/U from a friend for this purpose.

    I don't know, maybe it's just me, but why do the newbs keep replying to posts that are 3 and 4 years old. It does get irritating at times.

    Hell I did it all the time when I first came on, just never read the date. Eyes aren't that great...so it - Still happens...:p.

    I assure you, it is never intended to be irritating - hopefully, it will be more entertaining the second time around. I have several skeet guns and I'm still trying to find, "the one."

    I don't have easy access to Trap, 5 Stand or Sporting Clays

    2 years old, 4 years old, don't care. I'm game. I have a Caesar Guerini Summit Sporting in .20 ga with 32-inch barrels and kinetic recoil reducer in the stock. Cost new was $3695. My skeet club is a Guerini fan club. I also use a Beretta A400 Excel Sporting with 32-inch barrel. It's a .12 ga and has the Kick-Off stock system. It was $1695 and is my favorite gun.

    I don't know why Caesar isn't well represented at my club. It's B & B country (Browning & Beretta). Find it difficult to believe the auto beat the O/U for your affections.:confused:

    I just got a Rem 3200 O/U w 27.5" barrels - wish they were 30-32" but se la vi...
    Fact: my scores went down when I switched to O/U - so I went back to my Beretta 391 for the summer skeet league. Oh the Vanity...:eek:

    To make matters worse, the O/U is slapping the ****e out of me.

    Big Blue - Like my 391 - PIA to maintain. After shooting service, 500 rd service, 5000 rd service (only time you can really clean gas system - if you can find the spanner wrenches) and lastly the 10-15k service. Recoil spring - they don't make it easy !

    Beretta should have stayed w 390's system where we could clean secondary gas bleed ring w hand tools. Problem - idiots forgot to put the spring back in so now the Engineers mounted it to the barrel.
