Here's the thing; I don't shoot Sporting Clays much, but a while back I shot a 100 round of Sporting Clays with a sweet 16g Fox AE and light 2.5" loads.
I had a ton of fun that day but Ohh wow, that little Fox beat me up.

For those of you who shoot Clays often, what weight 12g SxS would you recommend?

Pigeon guns?

I have Past and Reactar systems.
They might be OK if you shoot pre-mounted, but if you Shoot low gun, there is just too much imprecision in the shoulder pocket for me to wear all that crap up there. If you’re worried about getting the buttstuck into your shoulder pocket, you are worrying about the wrong end of the gun.

A well formed recoil pad goes right into the pocket every time without thinking.

A slip on is a close second.

One would presume, that if you are going to purchase a side-by-side that You hope to maximize your score with, that would include the fitting of a quality recoil pad in that effort.

Unrelated (‘kinda) but, I came to the same conclusion with the strap on pads screwing up my mount as I am trying to be a newly minted 60 year old right handed shooter. Less, is more, in more ways than one.

Still working on it. Everything is good, except my mount. I’ll get there. Without straps, pads and what not.

Best,
Ted

If you are shooting 100-200 rounds on a regular basis (every weekend), 8 lbs. minimum. Experience speaking.
