Hey all. Just got into the sport of clay shooting a few months ago. I've been shooting a Nova and thought it was time to step it up. A Browning was the first shotgun I used when clay shooting and I loved it! I just sold my Nova and bought a used 12ga Browning Citori Lightning Sporting Clays Edition. I pick it up later this week. Can't wait to shoot it!

Wow...sorry to hear you couldnt get a real gun.

Just joking! Congrats on choosing one of the best..in fact, in my book, THE BEST! No other gun fits me better than my Browning! Stay safe!

It'll hopefully be the first of many because next you'll want a Citori Skeet Gun,then a Superposed Trap,and you might as well pick up a BT99,then you're going to have to have a really nice Citori Field Gun and the list goes on and on and on...........

Congrats on the new Browning!! My Dad started me on the Brownings. He had a FN A-5 Light 12 with VR barrel (which I still have). I have owned several since and now have a BPS 10 gauge and a 525 Sporting.

You're going to love it, better get used to the addiction now!!!

I have 4 sporting shotguns. One of them is a 12ga Lightning Sporting with 30" barrels and a high rib. It's my favorite of all of them! I can shoot it extremely well and with the high rib, I don't have to bury my cheek deep into the stock. Good luck with yours...

UPDATE:
It's been three weeks since i purchased my Browning and got to use it for the first time this weekend shooting trap. my first round was terrible. i hadnt shot in a while and kept thinking to much and missing easy birds. second round was arlgiht. third was better when i adjusted to a gun that shot higher than my nova. on my fourth round i shot the best score to date, a 24! i was so happy yet also very pissed when i didnt get a straight. ive been shooting for about 3 months now and just loving it. i absolutely love the Browning - I cant wait to get out there agian!
