woah, did I take your name or did you take mine? I will keep the 8 shot on mine just so there is no confusion. The major difference is the shot pattern. On a trap gun it will be about 60/40, which means that 60% of your shot will go above the bead and 40 below. With a field gun you are looking at about 80/20 (I think that is what Mine is) meaning 80% of the pattern is below the bead and 20% is above so you pretty much have to cover up the target, as there is a lot more shot below the bead. Any compitent gunsmith can turn a field gun into a trap gun though
