Shooters,
Do you shoot a single gun all the time or do you shoot multiple guns? I have a tendency to shoot a 20 auto in August prior to dove season and my duck gun in late fall. Then I like to dink around with subgauge just because I can. Never have figured out how missing more targets can be so fun...guess my focus should be on my primary shotgun if I really wanted to improve but the bottom line is this game is stupidly expensive and time consuming and it’s supposed to be fun. This keeps it fun for me.
How do you approach the multi-gun conundrum?
Cheers-Gofer

Depends if you mean shooting sporting for grins and giggles or for serious tournaments

Terry, as much as said you like to shoot subgauges, why not get a 28 built on a 20 frame; it will be lighter on your shoulder to lift (about 7.5#) and a 28 will have low recoil in that weight of a gun.

I say that because I got to shoot Bruce Buck's Perazzi he had built for Argentina; almost 7.5#, 80cm barrels (31.5); his was fixed tight mod at .016 in each barrel, but man could that keep up with the 12 gauge guns in the hands of a good shooter
Anyway, since you had said weight was an issue, it is an alternative............

What does a K-20 Parcour with 28 gauge barrels weigh?

Yes, you would be a much better shooter only shooting one gun. But, it's alot of fun to pull out the toys from the back of the closet. And...isn't having fun what this game is really all about? I shoot different guns however during tournament season I usually stick to one. Terry, sorry to hear about your health problems. You should checkout a Caesar Guerini 28ga with 32" barrels. They are pretty sweet! Have fun, Steve

One ounce,

I have that exact very same gun, except mine is choked .016/.024. Bruce Buck talked me into getting one of these Perazzi Argentina Specials since I don’t like carrier/tube sets.

It’s really fun to shoot, and I’ve done really well with it — at times anyway. Enjoy it tremendously.

I second your recommendation to Terry.

I shoot about 175 shells or more about once a week, One gun at a time. Mostly because until last week I only had one gun. I may take my backup with me, but I won't shoot two guns during the same session barring a malfunction. I only shoot 12 ga and have no interest at present in any smaller bore. I believe that the 12 ga O/U is the most perfect match for sporting clays. My $0.02 only.

From January to the end of August I shoot my Benelli SS.

For September thru December I shoot a Citori and Rem 1100, both in 16 gauge, both are guns I hunt with.

I have never gotten a punch with either 16 ga. shotgun.

It's a good idea to stay current and shoot your back up gun every once in a while. I have only needed to go to a back up once in 10 years in competition.

I alternate between 3 guns in SC, Beretta A300, Winchester SX1, Remington 870. All 3 have the same fit, recoil pad, weight, balance, POI. Difference is trigger pull, 2 auto load, 1 auto arm load. If I shoot tournaments I'm Rack-N-Roy for fun I'm Auto-Roy.

The month before bird season I get the sxs out for a couple of rounds to get used to double triggers and an auto safety. O/u the rest of the time.

Today was my first time to shoot at my home club in Austin in 3 long months... So along with my clays gun a beautiful round knob Auto-5 light 12 that has been whimpering from the back of the safe...found it’s way into the truck.

Next time I’m going to bring along some federal paper shells to really make it fun.

One gun during tournament season. Off season all the guns come out of the safe for fun.

Terri,
I could make you the proud owner of a multi target.
