Can you give some info on buying 12 gauge shotgun shells?

I am looking for a cheap source of shotgun shells. What brand shells do you use?

I buy Federal Top Gun. A good shell at about $55.00/Flat (10 Boxes of 25). Usually found on sale at the bigger sports shops. Reloading is a great way to make em cheap though :-) Read More

Have you tried shooting without a front bead sight on the barrel?

Mine fell of the gun and I was wondering how much can my shooting be affected by a missing bead? ...

I take a black marker and blacken mine out, allows for total focus on the target and nothing to distract and pull my eyes off of the target. If it starts to lighten up just apply more marker. Read More

Does switching between shotguns affect shooting?

I'm wondering how much of a difference there is between guns.

Makes a huge difference if the guns have difference in weight. I went from shotting my 9 lbs Remington to shooting a 7 lb Benelli and the swing weight was way off for skeet. Trap and sporting clays may be a bit different. Read More

I use 1 ounce of #8 from 16-27.  I change chokes as I move back from the 21.  LM from 16-20, M from 21-24, f from 26 to the back line.  This is also a personal preference.  Try diffeerant loads, shot and chokes to see how they effect your shooting. Read More

Does barrel porting have any effect on shot velocity?

I've seen shotguns that have both barrel and choke porting. What's the point?

Overall, I use a wine colored lens.  It seems to work both on sunny and cloudy days.  That is what works for ME!   I have tried numerous color lenses and that color shows the target best for me.. Read More
