We used to shoot trap all the time several years back....but haven't done it at all here the last couple years.

My husband and I both have a Beretta 686 White Onyx. Mine was custom fit - stock cut short and cantered for left hand shooter. Awesome / beautiful gun and works great!!

20 ga over under yildiz shotgun, 28" barrel, the one from academy. its extremely light and shoots fairly well. i usually shoot twice a month on average, enough to stay a decent shot.
i am saving up now for the ol faithful remington 870

I really want a 870 for home defense but they suck when shooting doubles.

If you want a 870 Do yourself a favor and get a wing master, they shoot/feel much better than the new ones

I shoot competition trap and as well in PITA,Pacific International Trap Association. I use this as my main trap gun its a Browning Citori 525 Limited Edition in Nickel plated coating. Damn nice gun. Ive owned it for 3 years now.
I use a break open model as it is easier when competing as you can load a shell in while it is broke open and it can not go off. As to a pump or auto you half to wait to load a shell until it is your turn to shoot. This is for our gun club rules. Also a pump and auto have a tendency to trip the micro phone and a clay bird comes out of the trap house unexpectedly which can throw you off some times.
Here is a Pic.

I shoot a little, but not as much as I would like to. I shoot a local league sometimes. I inherited my grandpa's Browning Citori plus. Its got adjustable comb, butt plate and has a high rib. Its way too nice for me, but I'll never sell it.

Just found this thread and had to chime in. I shoot NSSA registered events often, starting to get into international skeet. Occasional sporting clays and trap. I shoot a Blaser F3 Competition Sporting w/ montecarlo stock.

This may be somewhat of a thread revival haha, but I have a question for yall. I just got into skeet and trap. And I recently went trap shooting for the fourth time the other day, and I shot a 22/25. I used 8 shot shells, and someone told me that was almost like cheating? Most of the time we shoot from the 16 yard mark, but my question is what do most competition shooters use? Am I supposed to be using 7 1/2 shot or does it not matter?

You mean #8 shot?
It's been a while since we've shot trap, but my husband reloads and always used #8 shot. If you're just starting out, there's not a damn thing wrong with using either. #8 shot is smaller and more of them ( not by much). Too many variables to consider. Including HOW the shells are loaded, what wads are used, bla bla bla.

I only ever shot as a hobby. Getting the gun setup with the right chokes is more of a challenge than having different shot. And not to forget, having a gun that is 'fitted' to you.

I shot competition sporting clays for a number of years (Browning 525 Golden Clays, Beretta 391 Teknys, Beretta 682 Gold E, Rizzini Vertex) and I never used anything except 7 1/2 or 8 shot. I shot skeet from time to time and never saw anyone use larger than #9. If they're giving you crap about #8 then ignore it and move on. Shoot what you're comfortable with.
