So far I've gone with a remington 1187. Plan on saving some more money up and getting a browning or maybe beretta. The reason why is the browning is the only one out of all the ones I've shouldered that actually felt right. I've tried some off brands I've never heard of and yildiz,Ati,ect and never was 100% happy with what I was holding. So long story short that's the direction I am headed and what I have at the moment.

Oh yeah.. almost forgot. Also using a 12 ga double barrel for fun too. I actually like shooting clays with it and so does my oldest boy. Don't remember the brand off hand .

Longer barrels (30, 32 and I have seen 34") help with your focal plane and swing.

I know times are tricky now, but I would look for a good used O/U from one of the B brands (Browning - Beretta) before I bought a new, cheaper gun. That being said, I have never shot a Huglu, Yildiz, Mossberg Reserve so I can't speak for them.



A lot of truth in this post-- yildiz are really too light for high volume sporting clays shooting - they don't break open very well or swing as well as a heavier shotty @ least on my yildiz o/u 20ga-

a 28in to 30 inch for sporting clays & trap min length

a lot of of ranges will give you approx 150 targets when you do a 100 round sporting clay course recoil will add up & affect your shooting as you go thru the course !

yildiz for a light weight hunter is ok

My first yildiz 20 ga got a lead weight in the butt and forestock and turned into a great swinging over under. It even broke open very nice after 1000 clays or so. It was stolen dove season of 2007. I have since replaced it with another that I shot 4 pigeons with opening day (because Mclennan county dove are not present). Haven't modified my replacement yet, because I don't do near the shooting I did.
