Yes I did it, wahaha!!!

it was so fun, I expected small gun like pistol but they have shotgun which is soooo cool. Me and friends shot the moving clay targets. 25 rounds, took about 2 hours, cuz I'm total beginner so the trainer has to correct my position almost every time. In the end, 25 target, got 6, not so awful for a newbie i think, hahaha!!! :D


look like fun and exciting.But i scare i will spend alot .Becoz previous posts mention,25 rounds only last 5 mins. If add on more rounds need to
pay more and more $$.. :?


Go to the Casino and shoot craps instead of clays. Then you'll know expensive! :o

The new S&W 500 would be a laugh!


Yes it was for me too. But I can't say I honestly enjoyed the experience. It was a S&W .44 magnum. It is so heavy you have to get it on target very quickly or you start wobbling. Then it has an extremely long and heavy trigger pull (or what ever it's called). You know it's going to go off like a freakin cannon so you're kinda defensively squinting while trying to pull the trigger and keep it on target. And yes the recoil from the relatively small grip is so major it bruised the palm of my hand. As I suggested.... what part of that sounds like fun? :)

For plinking targets a .22 rifle is good and cheap on ammo. Last time I was at a range they also had 9mm rifles which were different and interesting, the 9mm round being pretty cheap too...


p.s. SMS if it wasn't your son I'd be asking how on earth he got to be using a single shot 12 guage!... redneck lol...

I didn't even know you could shoot here. I'm guessing I can't import my fn five seven, ar10, or clone hk93 :-(

If you wanna shoot something try a.308. .223 is a great round buy you won't feel it. Mossy 12g is great too

The mossy is around because it was my first gun 50 years ago and it was cheap! The barrel was shortened as was the stock, as I was a wee lad back then (only around 5' tall) it was also retrofitted with a poly choke which made it an ideal gun for a young feller with little to no money as full open it could handle a rifled slug for deer and at full choke for squirrel, or even bird although it left a bet to be desired for fowl as the short barrel tended to still too much spread. I still like it for deer when thrashing through the woods on a drive as it's light and short like the custom made deer guns of today.

My favorite shotguns are Belgian made Brownings 12's (I have three in various barrel configurations).

I've had the quite recent pleasure of a few days out trap shooting with both Browning and Beretta 12's over-unders. Compared to the clapped out budget stuff I grew up using it was a complete joy.

Perfect fit and balance... really natural feel into the shoulder/swing - Lovely!

p.s. But yeah, Mossberg is considered a hooligan's gun of choice, and that's before you saw the damned thing off!! :lol:
