Shotgun-fi?

post #1 of 30

Just got a new skeet gun and was wondering if any head-fi'ers were into this? Thought I'd post a pic, it's a nice little O/U.

I'm not into it, but I sure want to be. Someday I'll have the money, time, and inclination to get a double-gun and get into bird hunting and skeet shooting. I really, really love going out quail and dove hunting but I haven't gone for several years. Right now I just have a Winchester 1200 12 gauge that I got for my 12th birthday. It's ok, but I'd really like to buy a nice double someday.

I don't get to go bird hunting much anymore since I moved, but clays are pretty cheap and it's not to hard finding an area to shoot them at. That Winchester looks alot like the gun I keep out for "home defense" mines a cheapo, but it does make alot of noise when you chamber a round.

lisnalee: It's a franchi.

I have a Lanber 0/U 12g, must be about 7/8 years old now but still shootin straight. I'll post a pic when i charge the camera up.

I try to go to my local club at least every other weekend for some skeet shootin but havent been the past few with the holidays and that.

Its hard to beat shootin a few clays early on a saturday morning to kick start the weekend

I do some skeet and bird hunts from time to time. I don't currently own any guns...although I'm working on that

Right now my dad has a Savage Model 444 that I might buy. Decent gun, but fixed chokes. Certainly like over/under over pump or SA. Faster reload times for me. He's got a Browning Citori, I can't remember the model number. That's a damn fine gun, but a little expensive for me.

no shotguns at this time but i have considered a couple... one for home defense and one of those replica trench guns (i've seen how much the real thing goes for... if i ever start crapping out money i'll buy one)

I do a fair amount of Pheasant hunting, because I only hunt what I care to eat (Pheasant is delicious). I have 2 Winchester Model 12 16-gauge shotguns one has a full choke and the other has a poly-choke. They both have the original walnut stocks. They are both in excellent shape considering they are 55+ years old and have been used quite often. I am considering getting the steel re-blued however.



This isn't my gun, but its the same model, gauge, and condition as mine.

Very nice lisnalee, I love the wood grain in the stock. Is it just me or do engravings look far more classy without the gold leafing?

I dont mind either way, I think that more expensive guns have gold in the engraving. Mine didnt cost that much as i only wanted a cheap first gun. Next time i might go for a bit of gold trimming

I heard that having gold plating makes you shoot 30% straighter.

Skeet and other clay games may be good practice, but bird huntin' is the thing. Spaniels, the woods, boots that fit, a beautiful October day and guns that will pattern whatever shot charge your game calls for. Mostly for us it's grouse with an ounce of 7 1/2s through the 20 bore tube of a light, quick, short gun. I've got Winchester 101s in 20 and 12, Grade 2 English straight stocks, fixed IC/IM and IC/M, a Classic Doubles 201 (think Winchester 23), Grade 2 English straight stock, fixed IC/IM, but in recent years, my Benelli M1 20 gauge has been getting the nod. Very durable, fits me like a glove, and allows fast followups through the same IC tube. Allows me to "IPSC" the fleeing grouse.
