Am looking for some advice. A good mate of mine has recently taken up clay pigeon shooting and really enjoys sporting and has said he’d like to try the live stuff too. (Another convert, winner!) He’s had the FEO over and has been told to expect his SGC shortly.
As such, he’s looking to pick up his first shotgun. I’ve given him some advice of going for
- 28/30” Sporter
- 3” Chamber
- Steel proof
- Not fancy grade wood
- Second hand Browning / Miroku or Beretta whichever fits best
(My thinking being he’ll be able to do most shooting he seems to be interested in with that and won’t lose too much if he changes it for something when he has a better idea of his preferences)
So, does anyone reckon I should give him different advice or have missed something?
Also, one thing he’d like to do is get the chance to rent a couple of the above and try out on some clays.
Next question: can anyone recommend a clay ground with a good second hand selection within a couple of hours of London? Also, heading up to the CLA so we can have a look at a few SGs there side by side (excuse the pun)
Thanks in advance,
