Yes, I’ve shot one. A couple of my rich friends own them. They are a little on the heavy side, have a locking system like a vault and shoot sweet. I don’t shoot much SxS events so I can’t justify buying one even if I could afford one. But, I must say, they are very nice guns. I do have a Model 21 though. I like it for clays.

I'm afraid if I shot one I'd like it too much, Buzz. Heavy doesn't bother me on a clays gun. My MX 8 hits the scales at 9 lbs. +. Thanks.

I've been shooting everything but trap these last few years with S by S's. I have a Model 23 Heavy Duck that's been a good waterfowl gun. I'm changing the buttstock to give it some more length and cast and generally fit it for competition. I'll see how it works for everything where I want a 12.

Daryl and Stan, do all of the bigger NSCA side by side shoots have a Veteran and Super Veteran class? My shooting is not what it was when I wore a four gun AA NSSA pin. My NSCA class stopped short at A when things got kind of professional in the nineties and the two thousands. At 76 years not so young, I would be interested in shooting if the Veteran classes were available. Thanks for any information. Your friend, Bill Murphy

Yes, Bill, they do. At least, all I have been to or looked at registering for. I shoot AA class and also Super Vet.

Here are the NSCA concurrent classes:


Sub-Junior Has not reached the 16th birthday by Jan. 1 of the target year
Junior Has not reached the 21st birthday
Veteran 55 years or older but less than 65
Super Veteran 65 years or older but less than 73
Sr. Super Veteran 73 years or older but less than 80
Legacy 80 years or older
Lady A female of any age

I won the AA class S X S at the US Open at Tunica in 2010, and also the Veterans concurrent, with a score of 87/100. The seven punches I earned overall, at that shoot, punched me into Master class. I soon learned that Master class is another name for Donor class for most of us, at big shoots. In a few years I was moved back to AA class, where I really belong. I don't shoot enough registered targets to be a Master class sporting shooter. For some it's a badge. Not me. I'd rather have a chance at winning in AA than be 15th in M.

162 people shot the Side by Side event at Nationals this year. A big increase from last year. Also a nice increase from the pre-Covid years, which were under 150 shooters. I take that as a good sign. You can see all the class results including the many concurrent results (on the pull down menus) on Winscore:

There are now 75 shooters signed up for the SXS event at next years US Open at Backwoods Quail Club in South Carolina. You can see details on scorechaser.com

Nice to see that there were shooters in all these concurrents in the Nationals SXS event. That means the SXS shooters ranged from under 16 to over 80. The sub-juniors posted some impressive scores including an amazing 84/100 which was only 8 shots below the high overall!
