sxs or o/u?

I have been thinking about getting a double barrel shot gun for skeet shooting and I am wondering if there is much difference between the two as far as shooting goes. I have heard that a sxs is not as good for skeet shooting because of the two barrels obstructing your vision, though I like the looks and nastalga (sp?) part of the sxs. Any thoughts?

Not sure if it would block view. Seems to me it would depend on what station you were shooting.

Most people that I have chatted with have stated that it is generally easier for an individual to shoot an o/u vs an sxs.

With that said, I have met a number of people that are so talented with a sxs that just the removal of the sxs from it's case causes birds and clays fall from the sky! :lol:

I too am fond of the tradtion associated with them. I am looking for a nice (reasonably priced) 20 or 28 gauge. I have made a commitment to shoot it regulary and without fail until I get comfortable.

Don't buy what everyone else is shooting. Go with your preference. With a quality/decent sxs, you can tear up the clays just as quick !!!!

Good luck. Let everyone know if and when you purchase.
