 Post subject: Citori for Waterfowl?
PostPosted: Thu Aug 05, 2004 1:55 pm 
I have always been a wingshooter only until this spring. I took up trap and skeet shooting at a local range, and I am using my field grade auto. I think I'm hooked :)

I have long wanted an O/U. Now more than ever since taking up clays shooting. I have always coveted a Browning Citori, but due to finances I would need to stick with the field grade Citori which would pull double duty for clays and wingshooting.

Does anyone use their Citori for waterfowl? If so, how does it hold up?

I have been using a Browning Superposed for waterfowl hunting for 41 years. I've used lead,steel,Hevi-Shot, and everything else that is/was legal in it. I cant even begine to say how many ducks & geese have been shot with it, but it would be in the thousands.

Answer your question?????

My only knock against an o/u in a cramped duck blind is that they are harder to reload than a semi-auto.

I use a 30" Hunter model Citori for clay targets and waterfowl. I have few qualms with it other than it is rather muzzle heavy. A bit of weight in the butt evened things out a bit. I use it mainly when shooting over water where it would not be possible to retrieve the empties if using a pump or auto. It is my back up for field gunning as the weight makes it a little tough to swing when laying in a field. The stock is dinged and the bluing worn but that is to be expected with a heavily used gun. uglydog

Yes it does. Thank you :)

I needed someone on here to say it would be fine, so when I tell the wife I just traded in my "duck gun" and spent a grand on another shotgun, I can justify it by saying it can pull double duty with clays and ducks according to Tom (blunder). :lol:

God knows I'm gonna need a scapegoat to help justify my purchase. Thanks for the alibi :D

Have you tried "This Browning is an investment! Quality firearms always retain their value."

Ha! That would get me the raised eyebrow glare followed by a cool "Do you really want to get into this?"

My Uncle uses a satin Hunter in the Duck Blind. I like the fact of having 2 chokes. The Imp. For the 1st shot and the Mod for the second. But I like having 3 shots a little more than having 2.
