Been doing this for about a year now and really enjoy it. Started off with my Remington 870 and now use a customized CZ Redhead Deluxe.

This is about the time of year the weather for shooting is perfect, in my opinion!

It depends on what's available in your area. Where I have lived and shot the most, there were several trap and skeet clubs and a really good sporting clays range. The clubs without sporting clays (and no room to build one) used 5-stand.

My trap gun (right) is a Browning BT-99 Plus with adjustable everything and built-in shock absorber. I don't think they've made that gun for 10-15 years now. For trap doubles, skeet, and sporting clays, it's the Browning Sporting Clays Special (2nd from right).

Man, those are some guns... the guys at the club recommended a BT-99, just couldn't find one.

I did get to shoot a $10,000+ shotty though... found out I can miss with those too. :)

Gosh, some of these posts are so old. This site could use so e Google search help.

I would love to see a friendly shotgun forum take off with responsible friendly people posting.

I shoot five stand and it also will humble any "woman". I love it though.

Yep, same here. I love blued steel and nice wood.

I do not own any tacticool shotguns. All clays and game for me. Shooting paper is boring.

Hagh! I think you nailed it with that one, OH.
I haven't stepped on the static ranges in four months for the same reason.
Clays and especially the five-stand has ruined my attitude towards rifles and pistols because nothing moves and nothing explodes. Boring!
Which reminds me, anyone heard from DonnieD lately?

I shoot five stand......badly. But, I still shoot it. My favorite is sporting clays and skeet.

I own a tactical, but I love my old superposed guns. I also have a 98 Beretta 682 gold that I had modified to fit me. I added a comb and had the stock shortened and cast to fit. Once in awhile I shoot an old side by side just for fun.

What sxs do you shoot? I love them, my K-gun hasn't been out of the safe in ages. Sunday I was shooting my 120 yr old JP Sauer 16ga sxs hammergun at skeet. More fun than a barrel of monkeys.

Not a great side by side. It is an old Ithica Nitro that belonged to a family member and was passed down. My favorite gun right now is the Beretta 682 gold that I have modified the heck out of to fit me. I have a Perazzi MT6 I use for trap and a Browning pigeon grade superposed that is my baby.

There is nothing wrong with the Nitro, they are good utility guns, strong and durable. Being a family heirloom makes it priceless. Enjoy it.

Hagh! Savannah, no one owns guns like yours without having a pretty good idea of what they are doing.

FYI:
Savannah is a small charming seaport located on the coast of Georgia.

Yes it is, Old Southern charming city, Fort Pulaski, Tybee Island, and OMG the seafood!!
Planning a trip soon.
+1 on the gun statement too, the average mall ninja doesn't do Perazzi. Probably thinks it's a pizza :D

Yep, I like old sxs guns but if they start giving me trouble, down the road they go. They can turn into a money pit in a hurry - and I don't have a lot of that.

Not from Savannah, I am in CA. Great place for weather but, that is it.

The Ithica is fun to shoot with lighter loads. The recoil pad is thin and it kicks a bit even with lighter loads.

I am actually going to go to a crazy fun driven clay shoot in May. Thousands of clays shot from the top of a hill. I am going to use a Parker side by side that doesn't belong to me. It is a 12 gauge that has been changed to a .20 gauge with inserts. It is heavy, but the felt recoil is much less. They warned us to bring a flat of shells each. This will be fun!
