Trap shooting is really fucking addicting.

>>36478228
What's the minimum advisable barrel length for trap and skeet? I want to do clay shooting, but I also want a hd gun and I'm too cheap for a second barrel.

>>36478245
I'd shoot something up that, if you catch my drift.

I failed shotgun merit badge in boy scouts because I couldn't hit clays for shit.

>>36478895
You can get away with a 20ish barrel, what is really gonna make a diffrence is the choke tube. I use a 30in barrel on my remington 1100 classic trap and it slays clays all day, but its obviously to big for hd

>>36478228

When I impulse bought a hawk 12g a couple days ago. Saw it at local pawn shop, dissassembled it anx the bolt looked good. Priced for $160, guy liked me so have it to me for $150 out the door. Havent shot it but its nice for being a "cheap" 870 clone, nicer than some new 870s I've seen.
>>
>>36478931
How shit were you? I did it at 12 and only hit like 6 or 7 out of ten. I think to pass you just needed to hit 5.
>>
>>36478245
I wish I could shoot more traps but unfortunately it's illegal where I am
>>
>>36478937
>You can get away with a 20ish barrel

Most ranges are going to require at least 26 though, just FYI.

Obviously shooting on your own property is preferable anyway.

>>
>>36478895
I dunno... Because I went and did 5-stand today with an 18" cylinder bore pardner pump protector for shits and giggles and outshot everyone in the group but the NRA Shotgun instructor.

It depends on what you're doing but ultimately your skill as a shooter is what matters the most

>>36479036
I did something very similar a few weeks ago. They're great and legit better build quality then Remington now
>>
>>36478228
I do have two inherited OU shotguns, a Beretta 682 Trap and a Franchi.

I really do encourage anyone to go shooting clays, even with pumps / rented guns. It is something that completes the shooter: one thing is shooting stationary, and even moving ground targets, but when you have the challenge of an airborne target, well that's a whole different story.

Anyone should give it a try or two.

I had a IAS Hawk 982 and DESU, I preferred it over my Mossberg M88. It's a bit heavier, but you can really feel the durability with it, shit is robust as fuck with 3" magnum loads. I'd recommend changing the stock cause it's thin on the shoulder (for me, anyways). Other than that, it's a fine scattergat. Good shit, Anon.

I've never been to a clays range that had a minimum barrel restriction. They did have idiot restrictions, IE if you were dicking around with your HD gun and being annoying and/or unsafe they'd kick you off, but I would routinely see people with PGO's trying to hit clays and nobody gave a shit.

You can buy a decent pump for Sub $300 in most cases Used and New. I'd say give it a shot, shotguns are hella fun and easy to reload.

English sporting clays usually.

>>36478895
Standards are 30" for trap, 26" for skeet, 28"-ish for sport clays.
But that's just the historical basics. 32" is becoming popular for trap. Like anon >>36479129 said, its all about skill.
Choke will help/hurt you.
If you're at a standard trap range with the bird house at 18 yards from the shooters, you'll need a tighter choke than if you're at a friends house and the thrower is right next to you (I only have single shot spring loaded throwers with a foot release, so my range isn't regulation).
Clay loads are #8 shot. But people use #7.5, #7 #6- I've used all of those myself. I've seen people use 28 pellet buckshot. Even #00.
Having a gun that you're comfortable with and fits you properly is more important than barrel. Something that's lightweight and swings easy is more important with skeet than trap.

Does anyone have an idea how semi auto shotguns fair in cold weather? I'm think of picking one up for deer hunting. I assume the saiga 12 and other perform well enough. I'm thinking more in terms of Benelli, and that style of action?
>>
For casual I got by with a 870 magnum 28" but the pump delay was an issue sometimes. I moved on to the Beretta a303 and then the Weatherby Athena before I got out of it. Shooting a light cylinder bore kind of defeats the purpose unless you're goofing off on your own property. My friend had a spas-12 he broke out but the thing was miserable to shoot.

Skeet shooting is fun, I'm terrible at it but I love it

>>36479297
How much would those barrel length differences matter to someone who just wanted to get into it casually?

A Benelli will run just fine in all kinds of weather. The M2 is a fantastic field gun.

Smoking clays used to be fun.
Now we slip a random clay into the lineup with White Lightning™ superglued to the underside. (Instructions actually suggest having a friend through them in the air and shoot it with a shotgun).
I highly suggest anyone with a home range trys it.
>>

Not at all. A Mossberg 500 with a 26 or 28 inch barrel will run you about $250 new and will do just fine

you'll be laughed out of the range and get butthurt after you miss every shot, then they'll stop letting you shoot because you're wasting clays and swearing too much

Friend has a yearly trap shoot at his place, just for fun.
This year it was below freezing with the wind chill.
EVERY semi failed (most stove piped).
Brands were all over the place. Old Remington's, browning, Ithaca... It wasn't a cleaning issue, these were all well maintained firearms. Friend uses a browning auto-5. Never had an issue with it before. I even cleaned and lubed it the night before to insure there wouldnt be issues. It still had a couple fte's.
>>
>>36479334
>>36479366
Yep.
A beginner or novice won't notice a difference.
>>36479403
By "every semi failed" I mean they all had issues. Some only happened once or twice, others were more prevalent. We even took a break and broke them down to clean and it didn't change anything.
None of the pumps had issues.
>>
>>36479312
My Benelli M2 has never had issues in cold weather, but then again it only gets to about -5C in winter here in England during the day while shooting.
>>
>>36479312
I routinely hunt ducks and geese in neg-20 to neg-30*F weather. I shoot a Browning Gold. The only time it's ever failed on me I spent half an hour crawling around in foot-deep snow under a Russian Olive thicket chasing a cripple and iced up the action.

What is the difference between the sbe and m2 series? They all look the same to me

>>36479486
m2 has a 3" chamber and SBE has a 3.5" chamber.
Pretty sure the SBE has a weird multi part receiver too.

>>36479486
The SBE has a 3.5" chamber, the M2 has a 3" chamber.

>>36479238
Not like extended chokes do anything anyway. I feel like they just needed a reason to justify a $50+ price tag
>>
>>36479526
Not the same guy, but extended chokes have a longer taper, which (just like a longer barrel) helps pattern consistency. They are also MUCH easier to swap out, which is why many clays guns come with them. They aren't as big of a deal on a hunting gun, but on my O/U that I use for sporting clays, they make changing the tubes much quicker and less tedious.
>>
>>36479526
Assuming you're starting with a not-shit gun and aren't buying the cheapest shit-tier chokes, they can help IMMENSELY with pattern consistency.

I shoot a Citori 725 Sporting. The difference between the OEM flush-fit Skeet choke and the Browning Diana Grade extended Skeet choke was massive. And then the Briley Helix improved even further upon it. I seriously went from ~82% pattern density with big holes at 30 yards to 99.5% pattern density with no one hole bigger than a dime. And the factory chokes that ship with Citoris are already pretty goddamn good compared to a Remington OEM Remchoke or, worse, a Mossberg OEM Invector.
>>
>>36478228
Hey /k/omrads, im thinking about buying my first shotgun but please enlighten me, is trap shooting even possible with pump action? Im planning maybe Remington 870 for some more universal use but the question is can I take it sometime to clayshooting because it looks like lot of fun. Of course not gonna start in competition, just having good time. T. complete shotgun newbie
>>
>>36479617
trap=/=skeet=/=sporting clays=/=5-stand=/=[fucking around in a field with a hand thrower].

For the actual game of Trap, yes a pump is fine, single-shot shotguns dominated that sport for decades.. Trying to shoot International/Bunker/Olympic/Doubles Trap, any variation of 5-stand, any variation of Skeet, and any variation of Sporting Clays with a pump will put you at a severe handicap because those disciplines throw doubles.
>>
>>36479566
In that case I'd say it has alot to do with the specific gun/choke combo then. I noticed no difference with my Benelli with extended chokes, and after researching about it for a few hours online most of the actual testing showed a marginal difference or not difference at all. But hey, if it helps in your case that's awesome
>>
>>36479695
Briley and the higher-tier Carlson's chokes have made a big difference in 5 different shotguns for me, and a modest difference in 2 others. I have Briley chokes for 7 different guns and Carlson's chokes for 6 different guns, and there's some overlap.

I somehow don't believe it's actually as rare as you claim, your "research" is probably a bunch of people buying Tristar and other turkshit shotguns that use Beretta Mobilchoke pattern chokes, or Mossbergs with their 3/4" long Invector tubes, then throwing the cheapest Truglo extended chokes they can find in them then shooting the cheapest walmart bulkpack birdshot and going "wtf it still sucks"

Guns pretty much sat in vehicles while we all had lunch after everyone arrived, so they cooled down a little bit- it wasn't like they went from 75° straight out to the cold. Once we started shooting all the guns stayed on the range.
Competition took a couple hours. One ithaca had issues from the start, other failures started about halfway through. Most were minor. A couple were sidelined for doubles. There was about two dozen guns, half were semis.
>>
>>36480118
Huh. I'm more talking cold to warm to cold relativly quickly. Within an hour or two, enough time for the guns to get condensation on them from being taken indoors. cold -> warm. Then for that condensation to freeze. Warm -> cold. This causes a thin layer of ice on the gun. I've read it's best to keep guns constantly below freezing if possible to avoid issues.

Novas are great as long as you're not expecting the aftermarket that a Mossy 500 or a Rem870/chinkshit clones have. I had one as my hunting gun and it took quite a lot of abuse and just kept on chugging.

If you retards are serious about getting into trap, you should know that serious trap guns use long barrels (30” for pump/semi/overunder) or 34” single, and they have raised combs i.e. Monte Carlo style stocks.

The high combs help you float rising targets, so you don’t have to completely cover them when you shoot. The long barrel provides a longer sighting radius and swings better.

You don’t need an expensive gun, and pumps are totally fine, but these two features are a big help. Don’t listen to the morons who tell you that their 18-inch HD gun outperforms everybody else’s trap guns; they’re either lying or the guys they’re shooting against are dog shit. It’s fine if you just want to try it out and fuck around, and most ranges will accommodate most shotguns, but if you’re serious enough about it to buy a new gun, you should make sure to get one that’s actually gonna be what you need.

Its more fun if you don't tell the shooter which clays will explode.
White Lightning™ is a binary exploding target that detonates with rimfire cartridges and shotguns (yes, even #8 shot). We're still experimenting with what shot is needed at what distance. The size of the explosion is not as crazy as tannerite®.
White Lightning™ comes with 15 plastic snap together dishes that amazingly fit into the underside of a clay. Don't forget the superglue. Flight characteristics are different because of the added weight, but they fly just fine.
They're too light to use by themselves in the thrower, they are extremely fast- but try it if you think you have the skill.
>>36483055
I was more interested in deconstructing the failures than everyone else. Most of the guys were more interested in finishing up so they could go watch the rose bowl- Georgia was in it and football is big out here in the sticks, so I don't know what everyone else was using. I was using break free CLP. I wouldn't suggest it for cold weather from this experience. Others used my CLP and it didn't clear up their issues.

Anyway, are sporting clays supposed to be much harder than trap?
>>
>>36484480
I know the rabbit clays are a lot more of a challenge.

Trap is deceptively hard because of the trajectory
>>
>>36483083
It will work fine.
Friend #1 uses a 30" mod choke, friend #2 uses a 32" full choke, I use a 30" full or a 26" improved, depending on the course.
There are major differences between "trap", " skeet" and "sport clays", it has to do with the orientation of the shooter to the bird house and the direction the clays are thrown.
Trap- single bird house (thrower) that fires the clays up and away from the shooter in random direction and altitudes, but always from about 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock with the shooter 18 yards away at 6 o'clock position.
Skeet- multiple bird houses, center, right side, left side. Some clays move side-to-side, some move away from shooter, some roll across the ground (rabbits).
Sport clays- more like golfing. Its an actual curse you have to walk through to different stations. Highly varied based on terrain and design goals of owner.

>heavier barrel

>metal trigger group
ONLY because milspec says "metal trigger" group. The polymer FCGs in 500s and 590s don't have durability issues. One of my pumpguns is a 50-year-old 500 I bought beat to fuck, and continued to ride it hard and put it away wet. It's got an original plastic FCG that's never once failed me.
>ghost ring sights
Your mileage may vary but IMO they're much worse than a bead, especially in the context of this thread. You don't AIM a shotgun, you POINT it. The only time rifle-style sights are better for a shotgun is when you're shooting slugs, AKA using it as a rifle.


I'm not saying they're bad, I'm saying they're by no means more gucci than a regular 590 and for many uses the sights are a disadvantage.

Mossbergs are workhorse, bang-for-buck shotguns, and from that standpoint the 590a1 is not better than the 590 unless you're worried about being dumber than the dumbest crayon munchers the US Military will take. Since you're successfully completing sentences and communicating via text, I'd say you're over that hurdle.

If you want "the nice shit" then buy an Italian shotgun.

These. IIRC the super black eagle was a gun specific for the super magnum chamber.

That said, the M2 is basically their jack of all trades gun, and their most recent is the Vinci which actually has their historical inertial action reworked to be in line without the bolt tail inside the stock, and with free floating barrel.

Usually about $250.

Well shit, thats quite a difference, I also see they make the regular 590 is a 9 shot Mariner model so that's kinda the best of both worlds.

I like to have some useless bells and whistles on my stuff because it makes me feel warm inside, scumbag.

>>36479403
Any truth to nice semi's all having adjustable gas blocks for this very reason?
>>
>>36491715
You can put all kinds of dumb shit on a 590 with the $200 you save.

>not shootin a clay with a rifle
>>
>>36479177
I've never shot skeet before, wouldn't that be a good thing? More spread = more chance to hut? Or do you need a dense pattern to bust a clay properly.
>>
>>36494807
You want a balance of spread and density depending on the range. This is one of the reasons why O/Us are so popular... You can have barrel be a looser choke and the other one tighter

I have shot them a few times
I find it very easy
its a lot harder to have a friend throw something
its even harder if you throw it and shoot it

>but a lot of you autists only have a short barrel cylinder bore

>Live in nice area
>Surrounded by about 3 classy sporting clay clubs
>They are all "open to public"
>Try to give them money, for lesson ect
>Sorry all times are taken
>try next month which is filled up
>man they fill up quick, try in the spring
>Pls dont call again all filled up
>Learn from fudd neighbor that they are really all private clubs that are all by invitation only.
>They are "open to the public" by law.
>Law made so no one else can open a club because 'use the existing public ones'.
>Tells me how fun the sport is and how I should try it out.
>Doesnt invite me.

Basically I have found everyone associated with the sport to be Fudd assholes who need to die already. I did buy my own thrower and yes it is loads of fun!

I shoot skeet every weekend and average at 23. Been shooting skeet and sporting clays for 5 years now.

Walmart has a spring loaded thrower with a foot release you can use solo. Its like $40.
Or just get the automatic loading one for $300.
I'm looking for a good used wobble myself for that random altitude/direction. Will probably wind up making one. Only part I'm not looking forward to is digging that 500 foot ditch to run power out to the range, because using marine batters every time sucks.

My boss shoots skeet competitively and regularly runs 100's in the AAA division and shoots a beautiful Kreigoff K-80 Parcours that costs more than my truck. thing is a work of art.

>>36478228
Get a police trade in 870. Fun to shoot, and fairly cheap if your lgs owners aren't scalpers.

Use one of those Rossi long revolvers pls.

>>36497842

I didn't realize other people bought a Franchi Instinct L. Honestly one of the best feeling guns to hold.

I shoot ATA trap, and skeet. I enjoy the instant reaction.
