What's Your Pick for a 12G Semi for Clay Target Games?

Hey all,

Ok....lets say you have been invited by friends, co-workers, relatives or acquaintances to join their team at a weekly skeet, trap or Sporting Clays league. Naturally you can't be expected to use the shotgun you have already....that would be crazy. This calls for a new shotgun.

For this discussion you have to pick a semi-auto.


What would you pick and why? If you already have the semi you would pick....lets see some pics. Everyone loves pics of beautiful shotguns.


There's a couple shotguns I really like, the Benelli Legacy, that nice Remington 1100 American Classic (I think) and the Browning A5. If I were forced to pick one.....I think I'd have to go with the new Browning A5 Ultimate.
http://www.browning.com/products/fir...-ultimate.html

The area where I grew up, Huntington, WV and vicinity, everyone wanted and loved the A5 back then, but they had to be the ones made in Belgium. I can remember all those years ago when I was a kid looking forward to when the SEARS color catalog would come in and I would get it and turn right to the section for the shotguns and there it would be, the Browning A5. Naturally they were not the ones made in Belgium, but in Japan. No matter to a kid though, I loved the way they looked.
I told myself that I'd have my own A5 one day when I grew up. Unfortunately I haven't made good on that yet, but I intend to. Maybe it will be this new A5 Ultimate.

It's a gorgeous shotgun and it comes with a 100,000 round guarantee! What's not to love CZ redhead premier?

So many stunning shotguns available to shooters and hunters. It would be hard to make a bad pick. So, I think I'll use my pick and take the A5 Ultimate.


What's your choice and why?

PICS??

Thanks for the time.

I just went through this and bought a 1100 Magnum, then bought a Trap barrel for it. I like the wood on the Magnum better than the other 1100s. The gun I bought was in excellent condition with low rounds fired. The piston is 98% original bluing. The original trap barrels aren't cheap by any means though. I also bought a Browning BT 99, and that's what I've been using so far. I had a 1100 Magnum for 40 years and sold it a while back then wanting to get into trap, bought another.

I tend to stay with Mossberg for my shotgunning needs. Habits are hard to break.

wkuban will become famous soon enough
I have an 1100 field for skeet & Sporting and an 11-87 Trap for trap. I have an older 870TC that I like better for trap than the 11-87. I just shoot the 870 better.

Going to date myself here. My shotgun shooting sports career has ended, but I still have my semi-auto shotgun of choice, a 32 inch bbl Beretta A303 trap. I just love that gun, it's reliable in function and shoots very clean. It's one that my son has given me orders to never let it go.
