You are the only one that can say if you prefer something else, but why exactly would you turn down the gift of a shotgun???

If my son wanted to buy me some budget P.O.S. I might quibble. But, if my kid offered to buy me a decent gun (Browning or otherwise) I'd gladly accept it as confirmation that my offspring has become an adult and wants to show his love. The fact that it's a nice gun is just a bonus.

My only thought is that, as a trap shooter, you might prefer a BT99. But, no mind, a CX is a nice gun.

Your son is reflecting the obvious excellent job you did in his upbringing! Congratulations!

As for the gun itself, I will leave that to the others who provided you excellent advice. Good luck and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

I have a CXT and think it's a great gun for the price paid.
Barrels are well regulated and it shoots where it's supposed to.

Oh yes- just looking at other options- I think I am going to accept the CXT Trap with open arms.

Accept it and shoot it 200,000 times. You can then rebuild it for 50 bucks and then pass it to a grandson !
