Been long time since i shot one of these but got the chance to shoot mine today. Didnt kick as much as i thought it would but was shooting cheap loads in a #8 shot. Shot 2 rounds of skeet this evening at the club between rain showers and first round was 22/25, second was 20/25 both below my average but not by much. One thing about this gun is the weight, my browning weighs in at 9 1/2 lbs with 32 inch barrels and this is not even close to that and it makes keeping the swing going a little more difficult. I had to keep reminding myself to keep swinging through the target and not stop. One reason i like a heavier gun. Next problem i had with it was my head kept coming off the stock resulting in the missed clays and lower score. Such a straight stock i find myself leaning my head over way to much, if i were to use this gun alot i would have to put a adjustable recoil pad on it to raise it up. Gun handled well and no misfires what so ever. All in all not a bad gun for the money and i think kids and wife will like it, they were not able to go today.
