What kind of shotgun do you use?

This poll/question is for those that shoot sporting clays or skeet. What kind of shotgun do you use most often.

Semiauto- the Remington 105CTi II.

It's more of a field gun, but the gun loves me and I love it.

I shoot a semi auto also I had a over/under, but I just didn't shoot well with it. The only and big advantage I see with a over/under is the fact that you can choose two different choke options at once.

My primary guns for Skeet and Sporting are all Browning O/U Citori's, XS Skeet models, with adj combs in 12, 20, 28ga and a .410 ....all with 30" barrels. I weight them all to the 12ga / so 8 1/2 lbs gross weight is optimal for me.

My backup / travel gun - when I only want to take one gun to do a little of everything or my shoulder joint is acting up from a complete rebuild last summer - is a semi-auto / Benelli SuperSport 12ga, or 20ga, 30" barrel on 12ga / 28" on the 20ga ......

First choice, the Beretta White Onyx the family got me a couple years back so I wouldn't have to pick up all those empties when shooting doubles.

Second, an 870, of course.

bump.

I just got a Beretta Xplor the other day haven't shot it yet. Might be a convert to autoguns but I voted for SxS. I have a damascus 16ga belgian gun that I shoot BP shells in. I have taken a pheasant at better than 40 yards with the left full choke bbl.

Mostly, an array of O/U's, but I also use a 1100 and a SxS. ALL are fun, especially on the sporting course

I only have one shotgun, it's a 12ga pump w/ 28" vent rib barrel, so that's what I use and it will do the job. If I had nearly unlimited disposable income I'd get a nice O/U and a semi for the purpose and doubt I'd ever go back to a pump for the purpose of clays, skeet, trap, birds, etc...but a pump is fine for it if that's what you have an can afford

One of the older gents I shoot with just got one - he's still getting used to it - went to it because the O/U was getting too heavy for him to swing easily. He's also had the 39X series - this is lighter, especially in the foreend, which he seems to like

Let us know how your trial went

You mean to tell us that out of OU, Semi Auto, and Pump you shoot all three equally and not one more than the other....I want documented proof......J/K

I voted O/U because that is what I shoot most of the time, but our club has sporting tournaments for S/S, pumps & subgauges.
