Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Wingshooting: Heavy shotguns for faster shooting

I guess it might work on the sporting clays range, but try chasing quail up and down a mountainside in Southern Arizona with a heavy gun...



Quote:
Earlier this week I wrote about how to shoot quickly. There is one last point to make on the subject: if you want to shoot quickly, shoot a heavy gun. It seems counterintuitive, since upland guns are supposed to be light and fast-handling.

You will just have to build better muscle memory.

He's got kind of a good point but, its barrel length not overall heavy weight

For me, 26" Short barrel over/under or side by sides, 12 or 20 ga are too wipy. They wip around in the air more with no control. They dont swing smooth cause they are too short and light. Gotta be at least 28" barrels.

I cant hit birds for shit with a 26" 20ga browning or bereta O/U. But the extra barrel weight and length of a 28" barrel your swing smooths out and works good for me.

I have my real old Rem. 870 with plain 26" barrel that I never miss with, has the extra receiver length that a double doesnt have that makes the gun longer and swings ok

About 20 years ago I bout a on sale Bereta 686 12ga 28" barrel shot gun. It was on sale and a killer deal at the time. Later I found out it had the sporting clays butt stock. Solid walnut and heavyer shape. The rest of the gun was just like the field grade. I bought a new field but stock, different shape big hollowed out inside, and 1 or 2 pounds lighter. Installed that and it gave the gun a more barrel heavy feel and swings real nice plus making the gun lighter for carrying

I have an H&R Handigun with a 20 ga. 16 1/2" bbl.
An old friend proved he could nail clays with it.
Actually, he could get clays with most any shotgun though.

My alternate bbl, for the "Handigun" is a .22 Rem. Jet.
That's .357 case necked down to a .221 projectile.
Hard to find THOSE projos though.

I agree.

I have a Browning BT100 Trap Gun with a 34" barrel. It definitely isn't something you would want to go hunting with. But it's a killer on a trap range.

I love how my 30" fixed full choke wingmaster can reach out, and be effective, where others couldn't even dream of reaching.

Granted, this is pheasant, and hand trap. Anything needing more than 2 3/4" im lacking.
