Thanks for the encouragement, guys. I think you all are right, and hopefully soon I can pattern this gun and see what my effective ranges are. I do like the option of two different chokes on the O/U, which I think will give me an advantage on the 5 stand over the pump. But that 870 mounts so well...-Sal

Trap, Skeet, SPorting Clays is good fun but not as much fun as shooting the real clay "BIRDS" Try Shooting some Ducks, Pheasant, Chuckar, Geese, Quail etc. Plus you can eat em. CLay you can't eat.
I got into shotgunning about 5 years ago and enjoy the shotgun range and trap/skeet/sporting clays but the real fun for me is waterfowling. I started with an old 870 express and picked up a Benelli M2. Benelli has the Sweetest shotguns. My M2 is a bird wacker.
I use a wheelchair and waterfowl from my kayak. It works pretty good. I'm in the kayak in the tules in this pic.

I only use clay targets to pratice for the real deal!! I went duck hunting last saturday for the first time this year and got me 2 drake Wood Ducks and there is not much that can touch the sight of a duck just folding from the perfect shot and then cooking that bad boy up for dinner!!

I actually just sold my 1911, so if I combine that money with some Christmas money, hopefully I can knock a few of these things off my list. That is, until you guys put more ideas in my head (uhhum.... reloaders...) Haha.

Shooting sports are great fun for the whole family. Up here when my friends cant find me they can almost always assume I'm in the garage cleaning my guns and preparing the meat from the last hunting trip I went on. I'm a firm believer in "don't shoot it unless you're going to eat it" when it comes to critters. The only problem I find is that since my Skooter(Dog) died I have to bring a fishing pole with me every time I go duck,goose, or crane hunting.
Keep it Safe. Have Fun/***********************************

It sounds like you live a very entertaining life. I actually just added "ice fishing" to my bucket list so I'm certainly going to have to make a trip somewhere up north at some point. I have a good friend who currently lives up in North Dakota so I may just have to give him a visit.

That's a GREAT deal, Sal! I wish I had received some sort of offer like that. Either way, I'm just happy I finally got it done. It's of one of those things that I REALLY wanted but that I REALLY did NOT want to spend money on. LoL.
