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

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

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

I prefer a 28 inch barrel.  Easier and quicker to move.   30 -32 inch barrels work fine on sporting clays if you feel comfortable with the weight, but I shoot a 28 inch barrel with 1.5 inch extended choke.  Its a custom choke, but I feel more comfortab... Read More

Gas ports in the barrel get easily clogged by a wax like substance that prevents enough gas to pass though and operate the piston properly. These holes must be cleaned with a degreaser and a small stick or wire until they are absolutely clear. This mus... Read More
