Competition shooting sports which involve shotguns are basically Skeet and Trap. A beginner who is interested in acquiring necessary equipment to pursue his interest in both of these sports always has :confusion-questionmarks: numerous questions in his mind regarding which equipment is most appropriate for each of these sports, which equipment offers best value for money, where to buy from, for how much to buy, etc. :confusion-scratchheadyellow:

I invite learned and experienced members to share their knowledge and discuss the following:

1) Which shotguns, would you advise for Skeet as well as for Trap respectively. And why ?

2) Of the ones you prefer, which shotguns are available or can be arranged in Pakistan and an idea, if possible of their price ?

3) Any other words of wisdom which you believe would be useful for a beginner in this sport.


Thanks in advance :handgestures-salute:

This series of threads is simply wonderful. I am sure we are going to learn a lot from this. I would request Ghazi sahib, Ahmed Sultan sahib and other top level skeet & trap players (I apologise for knowing the details) to enlighten us on the subject :)

There are two types of shooters in Skeet Trap u will find it the one take it as a hobby and other professional shooters.If u r taking skeet as a hobby u can use a hunting shotgun for skeet but if u r taking trap as a hobby u cant use ur hunting shotgun in Trap.
Trap require proper customization in stock & its better to use O/U in Trap.There is a hell of a difference in feeling of a zeroed Trap gun & simple Shotgun.I am using Yieldiz Mx Trap It has adjustable comb & Pad.IF u need detail information related skeet trap go through net find
The gun digest book of trap & skeet shooting By Chris Christian, Rick Sapp. No one can guide some one in few words.

Thanks for the guidance brother. I am just a novice in skeet and do it for fun sake may be once in a fortnigh / week. I use my IZH 27 O/U for the purpose. However, I would certainly like to improve my skills in this field too, though pistol shooting takes most of my time on the range. Thanks for the advise :)

I will try to give you as much halp as I can, but it has been 25 years sence I shot Trap or Skeet in any kind of competition.
When I was shooting Two Nights a week at the local gun club, Back in southern California.
Most of the Skeet Shooters were using Remington 870 Wingmasters, with a 26" barrel with an Improved Choke.
Or Browning Over Unders with 26" barrels and IC chokes.

Now for Trap.
The best competition shooters were using the Berreta SO3 at the time or Browning over unders.
But you did see a lot of other models specially built for competition.
Most guns were 12 Ga, with 28 to 30" barrels and full chokes.
Many of the guns had high Raised Barrel Ribs, and special fitted Cast Off and Canted Stocks.

I did not shoot in the big competitions, but I was scoring 22/25 or better with my Berreta AL-2 Semi auto with a 28" modified choke barrel , and then a 28" Full choke barrel.
I also shot the rounds of Sheet with the same shotgun, and was able to get 25s from time to time.

It does not matter to me what kind of gun you use, as long as you can shoot it well.
But if I was going to do it on a serious Weekly Basis, and I wanted to be in a better position to consistantly WIN, than I would invest the MONEY and the time to Get as best as I could be.
I wanted to be competitive, But I shot for the fun of it.
