Thinking of getting started on skeet and trap
#1
Considering a CZ-USA MALLARD 12g with a 28" barrel.

Anyone have one? Is this a good entry level over under?

Thanks

A 12 ga can be pretty rough on your shoulder after 100 target loads. My shoulder was sore after 50 this last weekend (12 ga).

A lot of folks like 20 ga for trap.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

I use an old (1954) Browning A5 semi Auto for trap, haven't shot skeet yet.

28" is a decent length, although the more serious trap shooters like 30" or longer. What's more important IMHO is the choke. I'm not familiar with your gun does it accept chokes?

I see you're in Havertown, you ever shoot at Delaware County Field and Stream? I'm an RO on the table trap range there and am there most Sundays come on up and try one of our guns if you haven't bought one yet.

I started out with a Mossberg Silver Reserve O/U and didn't like it, I prefer one barrel, it's a tad lighter to hold if you shoot a lot in one day. As for the gauge that's a matter of preference, keep in mind the smaller the round the less BB's you have heading for the target. I reload 12's and lighten the load (powder) a little bit for slightly less recoil.

The real trick there is getting a good fit with your gun, you can break just as many birds with a old $200 Winchester as a $10,000 Perazzi if your gun fits you right.

I use a 12 gauge Maverick 88 w/ 28" vented barrel and an improved modified choke tube. I hit everything when I shoot singles. My friend has a 20 gauge autoloading Charles Daley and I find it more fun to shoot that because a) it's autoloading and easy to shoot doubles, b) it's more challenging shooting 20 gauge. That's just my 2 cents.

You really want to get good at trap, with no recoil, try a 410, if you can hit the target with that tiny amount of shot you can hit them with anything.

Thanks.

I haven't bought an over under yet, just been looking for a decent entry level one, the Mallard doesn't accept chokes, but the Canvasback does and it is at a price I am comfortable with on an entry level o/u.

Actually I am thinking of joining DCFS, but I haven't yet.

I highly reccomend DCFS. I've been a member for two years. The people are friendly, the facilities are extensive and well-maintained and there's almost always matches running if you like to compete.
