bought a beautiful older 20g Wingmaster last week...

couldn't pass buy this one. Just like it came out of the factory, 1970's gun with a 28" plain, modified choke barrel. Don't really need it, but the older Wingmasters were absolute classics IMO. I shot some trap with it yesterday and had a ball...

BJP, having lots of fun. Hopefully, if the weather holds out, I'll be shooting at M&M, Pennsville, NJ on Wednesday. Home of this year's US Open!!

A friend of mine had one just like that when were in high school back in the late 70's. It was a great shooter.

That sure looks like a late 70s or 80s gun. Third generation Wingmaster. Nice guns.

thanks guys, I'll try my best with the pump. If I pop 40 out of 100, I'll consider myself blessed. But, should see some better results with 16 yard trap...

Wingmasters are so very nice. Like a totally different gun than the newer express models.

40 out of 100 ...... ......( I'd say commit suicide - but you better take 2 shells ...) ...?? ( in case you miss ) ....??

( Just kidding of course / I'm not suggesting Slugo kill himself for shooting 40%) ....maybe yank 4 or 5 nose hairs out by the root as a penalty ...but nothing serious.... ....but 40% sucks....??
