Welcome - and good to hear you like the gun.

In terms of what the gun is - in my opinion, the name is irrelevent and just marketing speak. Personally, my primary gun for hunting birds, shooting sporting clays and for Skeet - is a Browning Citori XS Skeet with 30" barrels at about 8 1/2 lbs ( and I've purachased the same gun in 12, 20, 28ga and .410 ) because it fits so well / and I like the weight and feel of that model. I can shoot Trap with it as well .... But my primary Trap gun ( I like a heavier gun for Trap ) because there is less left to right barrel movement - so I go to a Browning Citori XT with 32" barrels for Trap ( at about 10 lbs ) and my primary gun has a Gra-Coil system in it.

The key - is having a gun that "fits" - meaning it hits where you look. To determine your point of impact -take it to a pattern board. Then, if necessary, you can adjust the point of impact up or down etc ...

Have fun / and enjoy the holiday with a new gun and your son home from school.
