    EFAD5DE2-D57F-4A25-AEC1-F64CEF8DF62A.jpeg Starting to shoot sporting clays and didnt want to spend much on a shotgun for it. This is really nothing that I will take to seriously so maybe 1,200 rounds through it a year. Guess I will see how this thing does from a reliability/longevity standpoint, the reviews are a bit all over the place but most seem pretty good.
    Tristar Upland Hunter, 26” barrel, 20ga and this thing is light. It really doesnt look to bad and the quality seems to be decent, definitely nothing to write home about but decent. It was $364.

    Tristar from Turkey... They have a good reputation. I've shot their .28 ga model

    I like the looks of yours

    That is a pretty shotgun for less than four bills! Let us know how it handles.

    I have a Tristar C-100 9MM. Made by Canik in Turkey. Shoots great. Never had an issue with it.

    I have a Tri-Star 12 ga SxS coach gun. Never shot it, just bought it from cousins wife because they needed some $.
    It seems well made.

    It will be about three weeks before I can get it out (darn work :)) but I will certainly let you all know how it handles a round of sporting clays.

    How has this gun held up? I picked one up this morning after doing some research I couldn’t find really anything negative about it.

    I haven’t been out much this year, only 400 rounds through it so I can’t attest to longevity after thousands of round but it has impressed me so far. Feels well built and is very nice to shoot, would buy it again without hesitation.

    I've had my C-100 for about 2 years now, it's my EDC and it is a great pistol. Accurate right out of the box, well made, super price for a weapon of this quality.
