I am looking for new shotgun for sporting clays or maybe trap and skeet. I put up another post a few days ago specific to one gun but not to many replies. I saw the new Winchester O/U Supreme Select Sporting in their new catalog. I understand that F.N. in Belgium makes the gun for them. I have heard good things about F.N.. but I can't even find one to try it for fit. <br><br>Any other suggestions? I've looked at Browning but they are a little more pricey. Browning actually owns Winchester I found out yesterday and understand that F.N. used to make the Brownings before they moved production to Japan. I've looked also at Ruger Red Label, Baretta, Wetherby. I need to keep my cost around $1000. Any help would be great. <br><br>Someone suggested I get a field gun and use for sport and hunting. I'm leaning that way. I have a 20 gauge Remington Wingmaster pump and a 12 gauge Lefever double now. The Lefever should only be used with lighter loads. It was manufactured probably in the late 30's or early 40's. It was my grandfather's gun. I guess he took a lot of Pheasant with it many years ago. If I really get into this sporting clay game I can always go out and get another gun later just for sport. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks!! <p></p><i></i>

You listed all three clays games.....they all generally have different setups for the guns based on the way the shots are presented. A trap gun doesnt make a good skeet gun and vice versa. The sporting clays setups are more geared for a variety of shots and offer a better compromise to an all around gun.<br><br>If you are looking at o/u's a $1000 is short of the bottom end of the major makers base models price by several hundred. If you want an auto, many if not most should be within your reach, unmodified. <br><br>The other option is to haunt the pawnshops and used market. <br><br>F/N says the are known worldwide for quality....I can see the third worlders now, (unpronounceable say- ("Boy, I'm sure glad the dictator spent the big dollars on those quality guns to put down the insurrection and have a coup, would hate for CNN to see us with cheap stuff!") <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lol --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.fnherstal.com/html/Index.htm">www.fnherstal.com/html/Index.htm</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br> <p></p><i></i>

<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Dr. D I answered your other post so I will answer this one.. I was a gun smith for over 30 years, so when I look at a gun I might look at it different then you. I look at how it is built. If it has nice wood and ingraving all the better. When my son-in-law asked me last year what to buy, and knowing they didn't have much money I told him to go to Dicks Sporting Goods and get him a Verona. They are $599.00 and built better then some costing twice that. They have nice wood, silver reciver, and nice ingraving. They also have the largest hinge pins of any gun I have seen, and they are replaceable. I think it is made just for them. Gander Mountin sells the same gun with a oil finish instead of the lacquer finish for $799.00. Easy to get parts and chokes for. Go look at one. Will make you a good all around gun.
