    That is very nice looking! I like the pattern on the receiver, is that in the finish or is it etched on there?
    I went down and shot trap last week again but still did terrible. Shot 8 rounds and couldn't break past 22. I guess i shouldn't complain too much it's only the 2nd time I've shot this year. I know my problem but i can't keep myself from doing it, i keep lifting my eyes and i can almost hear my dad standing behind me saying "keep your head down". I didn't help that it was windy too. While there i was looking at some peoples set ups and noticed a lot of adjustable shock absorber type recoil pads. I talked to my cousins husband about getting one installed but it's pricey. I think he said the set up is around $400 plus around $80 for installation. Might get it done this year. I cringe at the thought of lopping a inch of the stock though. I might go back next weekend for one last time this year.

    Meh! I would have gone with a Stoger for a while so you can be humbled. Now you’re one of those guys with the sleek purdy shotguns. I personally can’t afford that gun but you just go ahead and look good to you shooting buddies. I’m not jealous or anything. I just see you showing off so it hunts my feelings. I may have to impeach you from the forum. This entire post has been just a ball busting.
    Thats a good looking shotgun! I’d love to try it out. Good luck with it and I hope you bust a lot of clays with it.

    Thank you. The pattern is laser etched. (I like how subtle it is)
    I'm with ya. Dont know that I would be lobbing an inch off the stock. That would hurt my feelings.

    Thank you.
    Too funny, If it makes you feel better I do have a $300 Stoeger 12ga O/U
    I'd be happy to take it out in the yard and do some modeling shots of it for you.
    Oh and don't make me send out mean tweets. :)

    Yeah once you cut it off there is no going back. I was questioning the strength of the wood between the adjustable comb and pad after they cut an inch out. He showed me one and they guy has been using it competitively for years with no problems. Pretty sure this is what was on the gun i was looking at.

    This is what i was concerned about possibly cracking.

    Went to fun shoot today; one of the squadmates was using a Stoeger Condor and doing very poorly until he borrowed his buddy's 390 and his score went a lot better.

    I inherited the Stoeger from late father. I loved my dad immensely but where I’m what I consider frugal he was cheap. LOL.
    Granted his financial situation warranted it. I am not raising 4 kids on one income. I’m very thankful for the sacrifices he made raising us. He was a great father. (My mom was awesome too)
    Sorry to get heavy. Miss the guy. He would have been 74 yesterday

    I can’t bring myself to shot the Stoeger. It has nothing to do with sentimental value. I consider them the hi points of shotguns.
    hahahaha.

    I had a Browning Ultra Sporting Clays. Back when they first came out. Sporting Clays getting going too. Did most of my hunting with it. Really liked it. Did everything I could to make it the best I could. Adjustable comb made into it. Cut the stock for fitting.

    Had a Stoeger briefly. It shot low.

    Maybe it's because I'm older? Also never thought of any 12 gauge as a 'fine' shotgun. I try out the Silver Pigeon's in 20 gauge. They're approaching a feeling of 'fine'. Fit me great. Feels great to me. Also know you have to buy one of these for right or left handed shooter. They put the comb on the stock a little away from center. I just really love these. Maybe get one someday?
