I took my first two lessons between december and jan and since
have been renting club guns to practice.

Well - gulp - I may have my own shotgun this week. But now I'm getting nervous and ready I am to run away from the altar :lol:

It's a 12g o/u Franchi Alcione with 30" barrels and, i think, M/IC chokes already in. It's not new and in fact
someone was kind enough to put the scratches into the
stock already for me :lol: There's something about that
aspect of it that appeals to me very much.

Now I can practice and get instruction with a shotgun that's
mine. This way, when I miss and throw it in the pond,
no one will be upset about it but me :lol:

Congrats on your purchase! Stick with it!

What's really fun is getting used to one gun, then trying to shoot with another one!

i have a pond close to my house.. you can throw it here so i don't have far to pull it out ..you should have years of pleasure mixed with moments of disgust but that's the way the game goes .. just remember it's for fun your life will not change over a lost clay...enjoy ...tony :D

Yeah, it's pretty cool and i went ahead and bought it.
Everything worked out well that way.
I don't care about the scratches, I might just carve
"JuJu" into the side of it on my own anyway :lol: ( 'JuJu' is the name of the shotgun ). If B.B. King can name his guitar,
I can name my shotgun!! OK, i'm not b.b. king but...



:lol:
