going back to 1993 to the Warrington Kennel Club, Wellsville, PA. The first 40 plus out of 50 I shot with my 12ga/29.5" Perazzi MX-8 sporter!! That same year I sold the MX-8 and bought the newly introduced 12ga/30" Browning B325, which I still have today!!

Polaroid pictures before the digital age... :)

Very nice!
My most used is a Gti - the "daddy" of the *25 series - ugly, but still going strong since the mid-90's........

Ah, the days of Polaroids - when misbehaving at a frat party wasn't world-wide in 30 seconds..............:D

I liked the blued receiver and simple graphic on the GTi. They are appreciating in value since they were the first dedicated target sporting clays gun...

not mine...

Everyone thought I was nut to go for 32" barrels back then - 28 was the norm and a few were venturing into 30" territory for sporting clays
Now, if they would have left the ports out...........

There was also the Special Sporting Clays model - a few friends still have theirs -IIRC, it came out around the same time

only made for two years. Lightning Sporting Clays 12 gauge with 30" barrels. Also a great gun for trap with the high-post rib...

Did that come with the case, or did you add it afterwards?

I am really wanting to get a nice Superposed with a broadway and open the fixed chokes from M/F to something along the lines of .012 and .025 for sporting

I had a beautiful 12ga/30" Superposed choked mod/full. Sold it sad to say, but made $800 bucks on the deal. Nice guns until you need a part or two...
