Every month Shotgun Sports brings you the “Internet Question Of The Month,” where your opinion counts! Don’t be shy, get in there and give us a shout! This month’s question:
Who do you consider the best
professional coach in your clay-target sport?
(items marked * are required).
A past question and some select responses:
What do you prefer shooting — pump actions,
semi-automatics, side-by-sides or over/unders?
For sporting clays, hunting or skeet, I prefer shooting a pump gun. My choice is a Remington 870 Wingmaster. It seems to give me an extra touch of involvement in the process; pumping the gun is simply the way to get the next shell into play. Most observers can’t tell my gun is a pump action because the stroke is so smooth.

I far and away prefer my old side-by-side. Leveling my eyes down the valley between the two barrels feels very natural, requiring little habit-training compared to a single vented rib.
My preference for clay targets is an over/under. For the field, I prefer a side-by-side.

A semi-automatic Benelli in all three gauges.
Chuck Paya, Gardnerville, NV
I always prefer to shoot an over/under because it is the safest gun and, second, because the handling and usage is simple. A well-balanced and shaped over/under is my favorite gun.
