My son is on his HS's Clay Target team and shoots a Browning Cynergy, great gun but I really can't compare it to any others. It's now wood stocked, Gracoil, etc.

If you want something for just recreational use at the club, I think it's tough to beat a good semi, unless you're really going to focus on Sporting Clays. O/U's let you play the choke game for clays easier, Semi's are easier on the shoulder.

I can kind of keep up with my son with my synthetic stocked, 3.5" chambered, 28" Remington VersaMax. She never misses a lick, even on the low brass stuff. My son's 3.5" Maxus struggled with cycling low brass rounds.

Good luck with your choice,
Charlie

you have a budget?

I've seen everything from a $300 - $3,000+ mentioned here.

If you're committed to the game, cry once and buy a dedicated Clays gun.

if your not sure, buy one of the Turkish shotguns (nothing wrong with them by the way). If you enjoy the competition with the other members, the rest will be history.

just remember then, you only cry once, get your seller to adjust fit for you, Fit is VERY important, it will get you 5 more hits per round.

you are in Grapevine, drive over to the Berretta Gallery in Highland Park Village, enjoy the view. Elm Fork Shooting Range, you can rent a couple clays guns, Berretta's and Fabarms (Google them) a great shotgun!!!

I can agree with everything Buzz said except the Turkish O/Us.
Buy quality, if you don't enjoy the gun or sport, you won't take too big of a loss if you decide to sell.
