  1. Hey all, just wanted to provide an update on my search. I ended up picking up a Stevens/Savage Arms "512 Gold Wing" 12GA Over/Under with 28" barrel. It's not the fanciest thing in the world, but it should serve my purposes for the time being. I checked out a number of Citori's that I really liked, but just couldn't lay down the cash for one at this very moment. And I want to make sure I'm going to stick with clay shooting (possibly hunting down the road) before I make a very big investment. I have 125 shells through it now in trap shooting last week ... shot my personal best of 21 with it as well. I'm interested in seeing how it holds up, as I'm planning on shooting trap fairly often hopefully!
  2. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious but ... does anyone know who I have to PM for access to the CJRPC subforum? The message only says to "PM me with Badge # to get access" but doesn't say who wrote that... Thanks!
  3. Guess reading comprehension isn't my strong suit... I'm looking forward to Sunday and checking out what kinds of shotguns everyone has. I still have some research to do! Thanks for all the info.
  4. I'll check out their website to see the fine details, thanks. Just FYI - the Upland Ultralight has a SST as well. But I'll have to agree, the Canvassback certainly is a handsome firearm!
  5. Could you elaborate on what you mean by "nicer" than the lower models? I'm curious what other features there are.
  6. I'm going to get there early to get certified on the machine hopefully. I'll be the one with the old Mossberg 500 pump with the polychoke...
  7. I'm going to check out the Sunday trap this weekend. I emailed one of the guys on the website and he said it's open to beginners. I'm pretty excited. I only shot trap once but it was a lot of fun. Hopefully I'll be able to find something that "fits" me well!
  8. Excellent! My interest in the CZ was sparked purely because it was just about the only "affordable" shotgun they had at Cabela's. I read some reviews of it on my phone at the counter and was surprised at how many people seemed to like it! I would have bought it that day (I never make expensive purchases spur of the moment but felt like I should treat myself!) but their NICS system was down, and there was a 4 hour wait at that point so I left empty handed. Generally I like to do exhaustive research before committing to a purchase of any sort, but it's difficult to get into an entirely new aspect of a hobby... for instance I know a lot about parts for my car so I know where to start when looking for things like that, but I was completely lost when it came to shotguns! Luckily Google directed me to this forum and it seems great!
  9. Thanks for all the info everyone, I really appreciate it! I've shot a side-by-side and a friend's O/U (I believe it was a Browning), and I found that I am much more comfortable with the O/U than the side-by-side, so I think I'm going to stick to those. I just opened up www.shotgunworld.com so it looks like I have a lot of reading to do. Thanks for the link this looks very helpful!
  10. Hello all, I appologize if this is in the wrong sections, and hopefully it can be moved if necessary! I have been a member at CJRPC for a few years, and I mostly only use the indoor pistol range. I have shot trap and skeet with a friend of mine who is also a member there and loved it. I was shooting an old Mossberg 500 12ga pump. He is an avid bird hunter, and I'm planning on getting my hunting license to out in the field with him and see his dogs in action. So I am looking for an entry-level shotgun, preferably an Over/Under (that seems to be the "go-to" nowadays, right?). The upper end of my price range is about $650. I could stretch that some if it's really worth it, but I don't really want to be going too high for my first shotgun. I went with a friend to Cabela's for the first time this weekend and was checking out what they had. I really liked the CZ-USA Upland Ultralight O/U 12ga. The light weight would be great for all-day carrying in the field, but I'm concerned with the added recoil on such a light gun. Also I am not familiar with CZ-USA very much. Of course they had O/Us from Browning, Benelli, Remington, etc. which have a great reputation but I am not prepared to spend that much money just yet! Also, could anyone recommend any gun stores in the Middlesex/Monmouth area? Ordering online isn't necessarily out the question - nor is ordering from a local FFL, but to be completely honest I am willing to pass up an "amazing" deal just to eliminate the hassle of something like that and just pick it up in person. Cliff notes: new member in central NJ looking for an entry-level O/U 12ga, looking to spend up to ~$650. Would prefer to buy one off-the-shelf in person. Thanks!
