Well, Benelli responded to my email. Figured I'd pass the info on. For the raised replacement rubber factory combs. The low and medium are universal (left or right handed). The high raised, is only right and they don't make it in left.
So I placed a couple orders tonight. One to benelli for a comb. And another to brileys for a couple choke tubes, a large charging bolt and a Tru glo fat bead. Gotta get my son's new gun together for the sporting league.
Ques. I was asked by a parent at our last practice. "We have been looking around, going to buy our son a trap gun." "What do you recommend we buy for our son a, Tri star or a SKB?" I have a SKB century 3. I won it, and the wife shoots it occasionally. So I break it down and clean it. Seems fine, built ok. But I have never picked up or even looked at a Tri star? How are they? Any opinions appreciated. Thanks.
Anyone shoot both the Browning Citori 725 PRO trap and 725 Trap? Wanted to try it out, longer line and ran out of time. Son shoots the, 725 Trap. There's no visual difference. The recoil system in the stock is about it. Does the Pro shoot much "smoother" and recoil that much less? Than the plain 725? If so, is it all in the stock? Could you replace the 725 trap stock with the pro trap stock?
Didn't get to shoot Sporting Clays yesterday. Walked into Box horn and bumped into another coach. He asked why aren't we up in Mayville? Mayville and Shooters has a gun event going on. Bring your own ammo and shot anything you want. We gone! There was about eight different gun companies up there. Son shot 6-8 different guns and I shot a couple. Been looking for a new auto for my son. His poor montefeltro has been abused, been cut, shimmed, apart, and back together so many times in the last three years. Seems like every six months he grows. And then we are adjusting. So it was time. The new SBE 3 was there and shot nice. The Beretta was nice too. But its hard for me to venture away from Benelli or Browning. Son liked the SBE3 but won't be out in left for a year or two. Other than, mostly cosmetics, same as the 2. So a new SBE 2 it was. Hint. The 3 will be arriving at stores in the next couple weeks, bet you can get a good price for a SBE 2.
As much as I always hate to admit this.... McMiller still in my opinion has one of the best sporting clay courses in the area. It's more realistic due to the fact that the course is set up in the woods.
Now I hate to admit it because..... over the past years the range has been taken over by people from another state that has absolutely no respect for the facilities. I've seen 4 shooters line up at one stand and the puller just keeps hitting the button! Their shotguns are loaded to the max and they have no care in the world. Management care about safety and that is it. They believe that those actions are safe. In all actuality, they charge .35 for everytime the button gets pushed! You can figure out the rest...
It is a great course that I still will go and shoot but I have walked off the course many times in the past couple years due to actions like that. I have a great deal of respect for the sport and I have no tolerance in my older age for stupidity!
Have a great time shooting with your kid!
As a reminder... there is a benefit shoot at Wern Valley on Sunday April 23rd! Great cause!
This past monday the SCTP season has started. We had a great turn out. Lost a couple athletes from last year. But we gained eleven new shooters. It's just fantastic to see our team grow.
My son put down a 22 and a 24. I was pleasantly surprised he hasn't touched his trap gun sense last August.
And remember. Please support your local and other SCTP school trap shooting teams. The raffles, banquets and invitationals are already going and coming up.
More than a couple different kinds. Sorry but you're behind the 8 ball here. Should have started this experiment a month or more ago. Slugs are really finicky! Personally, I don't see the need for a 3" slug. Never shot one that worked well in my gun. Hope you find something that works well, whatever brand or size it is. Good luck.
