Just shot a match of Trap and was wondering how other people do the 'drill' with the Ithaca when shooting trap. It should be the same as a Browning BPS or any of the Remington Bottom-loaders. I had a hard time figuring out how was the easiest way to single-load.

Without Browning, we might not know about the other two...

That is the only drawback to the Ithaca design. It would be nice to be able to insert a shell directly into the chamber but taking everything into consideration, I can live with that!

I think I've got it figured out. After ejecting the empty, I turn the gun over and slide the forend about a half inch forward to allow the forks to drop. Then I flip the gun upside down and wait for my turn. I can now drop the shell down into the chamber without a thought and slide the bolt forward. Then a little flip of the gun and I'm in business. Will have to try that next time, methinks.
