You're brother must be very good. The only time I broke 20 or better at trap was when I was shooting a 20 gauge, yep a 20 gauge Italian over/under. Never figured out who built it but it threw some beautiful patterns from both barrels.

I guess I'm out of the loop. I don't quite understand the poster's negative comment. I won't be buying any more competition shotguns, but if I were in the market I might be looking at the F3 or F16 as one of my choices. I am a bit loaded up with antique Krieghoffs and almost antique Berettas and I am 72 years old, so my needs for comp guns are at an end.

Blaser is the "new kid on the block" so to speak, Bill. It is a solid German-engineered and built gun. Like most German shotguns (think "K") it isn't much to look at, IMO, with it's angular lines and bold, relief engraving, in the higher grades. But, it is a well made gun that has already proven itself on the competition scene, and it is a force to be contended with, for the old school boys. I have shot them, never owned one yet, but I have made the statement several times that, if for some reason I abandoned Perazzi, it is the gun I would go to for serious use. But, my opinion means not much more than nothing, to anyone else but me.

Actually, there is no understanding the negative poster's comment ..........except that he has a history of sniping at things, and posts, he doesn't particularly like. That's his right here, but it doesn't do much for his credibility.

The F3 guns are nice, the F16.....I donít want one. Iíve handled an F16, itís much less expensive than the F3 and thereís a reason.

I gave up trying to make a living shooting a shotgun years ago, so one of my Parker pigeon guns bored full and full seems to suit me as well as my 50 year old Krieghoff on the sporting clays course. "Suit me as well" doesn't tell the whole tale, because I seem to shoot them all about the same. The most money I ever won in one day in a pigeon ring was won shooting a rusty old P Grade Parker shooting against the over under crowd. An F-16 would suit me just fine.

The one I shot kicked hard and handled poorly. And I mean kicked real hard and felt like a club. The F-16 isnít a Krieghoff or a Parker, Bill. Try one though, you might like it. As they say....different strokes for different folks. BTW, you say you are 72 yo and your need for comp guns is coming to an end....a bit pessimistic, eh. My 92 yo bud who owns the F16 goes shooting with me all the time. Next week Iím visiting him in FL and we are shooting sporting at Tampa bay and fish hawk. He shoots a Krieghoff parcours and wants to get rid of his F16 if you are interested. Moral of story, ate age 72, donít give up!

When the F3 first came out, I took a look at one in a gunstore and came away unimpressed for the most part, saw nothing of really great import there. Maybe 5 years later I was shooting a 32" Verona LX980, which is today's Zoli Kronos, and decided I wanted a little more dynamic gun. I found a mint 32" F3 at Pacific Sporting Arms (who were great to do business with, btw) with the old titanium finish receiver that had the trigger upgrade and very nice wood.

I shot that gun for 3 years and punched into AA class with it. Not one problem ever through probably 12,000 rounds.

There is no comparison between an F3 and an F16, night and day difference.
