Remington 870 Express Super Magnum mostly, and occasionally a Wingmaster, an 1100, or a Mossberg 500.

Winchester model 1912, not one of those modern new fangled model 12's :) but the original, built in 1915 with a fully choked 32" barrel. Using light loads since I am scared to put anything else through it, it smokes em!

I shoot a Browning BT100 for all singles events. I have modified the gun to fit me better by adding a Jones adjuster and adjustable comb. Prior to owning a true trap gun I used a Remington 870 express with fair success and could never understand why a real trap gun costs so much more than a field grade pump. Now that I own a decent trap gun my average has improved 1 to 3 birds per round but the extra weight this gun has makes it more comfortable to shoot and it also swings smoother than a relatively light field gun. The high rib also makes target acquisition easier than a field type sight system. With the field type sights I would have to blot out the target and with the trap sights I shoot slightly under the target and as such never lose sight of it. The extra length of the trap barrel also improves sighting, lead and swing accuracies.

Started with a 870 hunting model and then was loaned a 870 trap, then my grandfather was nice enough to let me use his old citori hunting 12ga.

From there I went to a citori trap grade V, and along the line played with a BT-99 for awhile that I could never really shoot as well. I also played with a BPS trap for awhile too, it was nice as well, but I went back to the citori.

After that I had a perazzi mx3 special combo fit to me at the grand american and have not even thought about getting another trap gun since. However while the Perazzi is a great gun, I contribute that more to the fact that it fits me perfectly.

A 34" BT99 also modified to fit me for for singles and handicap and a Superposed for doubles, conintental, and bunker. However I just picked up an SKB 500 w/ fixed full/ mod to try this winter at conintental, because I have trouble getting under the low straight aways and I'm hoping a flatter shooting gun will help out.

Last winter I pasted :oops: the brand new roof on trap #2 at the Boeing trap and skeet fields because I missed three low straightaways in a row and was trying to get under that one and obivously over did it, or should I say under did it.
