Well hopefully we can find a sporting clays shoot this season we both have time to make. Then I can give yours a whirl.

Pa state shoot is July 12-15th at the Rock. I already have room reservations. Would be a good one. Probably close to equal distance for both of us.

Depends where you draw your line as to lower end. I have used the Beretta 68_ series for over 20 years and find them outstanding; have four at this moment in various dress. Nothing close on the market for my use.

Since January, I've gone through around 40. Just ordered 20 flats today. It takes a concentrated effort to keep up. grin

Agree on the 68- series Beretta. One fellow I knew awhile back had 100,000plus out of his before he had it overhauled, and he was not all that gentle when he locked it up.

I put it in on Winscore 3 weeks ago, but as of today they don't have me listed. I called Rock Mountain but got the answering machine. Just myself for now and maybe one other guy, but I doubt if he will be able to get loose from the chain.

PM me your NSCA number and I will put you on with a deposit. You can always cancel if you can't make it.

No, Dan is running a club in Ohio and can't get away as often.
The boy can shoot. Shot with him last month and it was a blast.

They have already discontinued the Beretta 3901 RL which was the only gun that fit my wife. She uses it to trap shoot and loves it. Almost no recoil. You can find these but beware they don't have Beretta barrels now (they are putting Stoeger barrel on the ones they are unloading). The forend fit is terrible so I bought her a Beretta barrel. There are does and don't on lubrication of the gas operated Beretta.

This is a video by Rick Gump the service manager of BerettaUSA regarding the Beretta 391 maintenance.

These just arrived yesterday and since I was down to two boxes, it's a good thing. One flat is gone already.

Battue I was buying Kent's by the Pallet. I stopped because my local Dicks Sporting goods was selling Federal Targets for $49- a flat. I talked to the manager and told him if he stopped opening the flats and putting the boxes on the selves he would sell more. He said that if I wanted to buy them by the flat in high volume then he would sell me them for $39- a flat. Guess what I am shooting now?

MCH,

$39 per flat is late 1990s pricing. Buy all you can. We paid $49. for these RIOs and it was a group buy that was huge.

Redneck,

I could put myself through Harvard on the money I've thrown out the end of a shotgun barrel. Hint: I'm not that bright and it would take longer than normal. frown

No more room in the garage for anymore right now. I am sure I could have bought a small house with the money I have spent shooting.

The Winchester "Super X" model 1 keeps running for me. I have Beretta 303's, and 390's and Rem 1100's but the Super X is my gun of choice for it's workmanship.
