Tried a .410 Bore At Skeet Yesterday, Bobski

I've got a field grade 1983 vintage Citori marked IC and Mod that seems to pattern more like IC/IC and Mrs. Flash insisted I take it out of the safe, blow the moths out and try it at skeet in spite of the fact I've only shot skeet 4 times at this point.

Shot a 21. Not too bad for an old guy I don't think. The wind was blowing around 10 MPH and we were getting some bizarre low house birds because of it.

Are they not fun to shoot? The one I got feels like i'm not shooting anything. Got a lille ATI to play with and it has been fun. It came with two sets of barrels 410 and 28 ga. Because of it i'm thinking of ordering a set of 28 tubes .

I have a little Remington 870 Express in .410 that I take out shooting trap every once in a while. Originally I got it for my kids when they were small, but soon realized the .410 is really not a beginners shotgun for trap or skeet. That being said, I actually do quite well with it as long as I get right on target and shoot quick. Once they get out there a ways, you may as well throw a handful of gravel.

There is one thing I found out shooting 410, you can tell when you stop your swing.

When I get a little sloppy with my 12 or 20 gauge in sporting clays or FITASC, I take my 1960's Win. Mod. 42 with Simmons rib, 26 in barrels, to the skeet range. After a few 25-round runs, I find that this puts me back to properly concentrating in sporting clays. I wish I could afford to convert that skeet gun to a good sporting clays gun, because I just love it.

Maybe some Briley thinwalls?

I shoot a 4 bbl set and 28 & 410 are my favorites to shoot. Not because I shoot them best but because they are fun to shoot. I don't think there is anything more satisfying on the skeet field than shooting a straight with the 410 unless it shooting 2. I do shoot 12 & 20 for practice or when my scores need a boost and I love shooting them but they are not as much fun as 28 and 410.
