onebarrelonedog Posted March 4, 2009 Share Posted March 4, 2009 Hello everyone. I'm a bit new to this forum, but I've been a reader for some time. I was wondering if y'all could help me with some things in my research for my next shotgun (a growing collection, much to the dismay of the fiance). All right - I own several shotguns, and have been shooting clays with field and sporting guns, I've read forum postings, and I have no idea if there's really any tangible difference between sporting and field shotguns. Outside of more cosmetic things (wood finish, fiber optic green sights, etc.) is there any reason why a serious clays shooter should opt for a sporting gun over a field gun? This is a general question, but it has come up again recently as I'm considering a few Benellis. I am a serious clays shooter, but I've found I prefer the feel of my single barreled guns over double. Anyway, in doing my research, I remembered how it basically took a concentrated effort for me to shoulder an M2 and not be on point (great feel), and I'm wondering whether it's worth it to go the extra several hundred and get a Cordoba. As a side note, I've found in shouldering many semi-autos, there's really a lot of semi's that feel the same, and none, that I'm aware of, that feel much like the Benellis, or are as slim/slender as the Benellis. I really like this quick pointing feel, and I was wondering if any of you happened to know of other makes with those characteristics in your opinion. In asking this, I'm almost positive I'm buying a Benelli, but I like to be thorough and test my tentative decisions. Thanks for your help and sorry for the long post.
