Hello All. I have been invited to go skeet shooting with one of the guys I work with. I've never been before and don't know what to expect. I have asked around at work and was suprised that several of them have done it before.
I got to asking what to shoot with. Most of them were divided between a Remington 11-87 and 1100. Me, I own a Winchester Model 1200 pump that I've had since I was 16. A couple people laughed and said I was wasting my time with a pump gun. I know it's not necessary to have an autoloading shotgun. I have seen on tv people using o/u shotguns.
Actually I have 2 questions, 1. What type of shotshell should I use? 2. What is the difference between an 11-87 and an 1100?
If I like skeet shooting it provides an opportunity to buy another weapon. However, I don't want to spend the money on a benelli or beretta. I have had experience with brownings and didn't care for them.
an open choke may be nice , but if you shoot your shotgun well ,full will work just fine . i shoot o/u, pump ,sxs , and semi auto . 12 , 20 , 28 and 410 (never had a 16).and if you like it ,you'll reload and shoot more and get better . good times
