I think y’all are assuming a lot about Lloyd’s budget he mentioned, as in “dirt cheap”.

To educate myself, I detoured through both Cabelas and Sportsmans Warehouse on my way to Costco today. Zero ammo (at least shotgun) anywhere. Guns, other than the black stuff and handguns, were in short supply too. My fear is that I'm a day or two late to play these shotgun games with any frequency. I'll haunt some of my older buddies but....just dont know.

I would suggest having Purdey fit you up in one of their sporters.

Next time, try drinking a Margarita before dinner, not a Margareta-- waaaay better tasting. RWTF

What I'm hearing from the grapevine is that Purdeys (and many other high-end items, fancy bamboo rods, boats, RVs, even watches)) are selling briskly these days. Endless speculations as to the cause of all that, but my more well-heeled friends have clearly made a note of it.

I did price out that CZ lender I was shooting yesterday and they are almost "dirt cheap", so....more looking around I suppose. I could always peddle the pile of some of my inherited (and largely unused) long guns here and build something of a war chest. God knows I need the space in manland.

Sorry Mr. Fox, done in by spell-check yet again. I made these most recent versions with Patron Silver and found them to be quite satisfying.

A dirt cheap clays gun? Nothing at all wrong with a Rem 1100 or something like a Winchester SX3 clays version. Last I looked, they were still pretty available in the secondary market. Must have an O/U? Find an old Citori field gun. Not too expensive and they run almost forever. Want a dedicated clays O/U that is not too pricey? Find a Ruger Red Label Sporting Clays in 12 or 20 with 30" barrels. I have one in 20 and I prefer it to my 687 (as a shooter, not as a looker).

My sporting clays shooting partners largely shoot side by side field guns by choice. They are high scoring shots to a man. Your Arietta wears you down because you are shooting ammunition too heavy for the game and the gun. My friends shoot one ounce or 7/8 ounce 12 and 20 gauge loads at 1200 fps. They can be shot all day without a recoil problem. Remember, you are not doing this for a living and a missed bird at longer range is not the end of the world.

Used k32 is a hell of a gun for leftys as stocks were usually neutral.
Bohler barrels, great mechanical triggers. Often in 32". 30 inch 8.5lb gun for 2k ish not uncommon.

Browning CXS is a good starter-1500

ATA Turkish clone of beretta 680 series for under 1k

Back half of my club has a duck tower on it.

It separates the men from the boys, too.

Sporting clays course is right, smack dab in the middle of the trap and skeet fields.

Best,
