    Yes
    I know what you mean about 28" guns, I taught both my sons with a 28" 686 onyx 20 gauge beretta, they are so light and nimble for a game gun, even for a 20 gauge a medium to long shot can still be made easily.
    I took it out a few weeks back as a backup to my benelli auto, and it's a great gun even for an olden like me so light to respond and even with light subsonic loads had loads of fun.

    for anyone wanting to start out shooting I would recommend a 20 gauge short so much fun.


    Health and safety hat on now
    Fun in a supervised and controlled manner

    I also use a silver pigeon 20 bore 30 inch barrel which I find to be a lovely little gun as well

    Default shooting glasses

    A word regarding wearing safety glasses when shooting ! i was at a team competition recently wearing my new Oakley shooting glasses , we were
    shooting at clays being launched off a tall tower (driven) from the corner of my eye i could see a large chunk of a clay whistling towards me and the next second it smashed into my glasses and nose . after having my nose patched up and being a bit pissed off that my new glasses were scratched i realised that in reality a £95 lens replacement was pretty cheap in comparison to what could have happened to my left eye !!!! ALWAYS wear shooting glasses when shooting clays !!

    Default smallbore!

    I used to shoot BSA Martini in competitions, indoor and outdoor and rapid fire at HMS Excellent I would probably need to use a Twin 40mm Bofors to hit anything now

    I did clay shooting for the first time this summer.

    It seemed to be a complete waste of good shot and clay. I think my time & shots could be used much more efficiently if i sat outside the local court house and took out the odd sub-prime waste of space xxxxx as they exit after slipping through one of the uk legal loop holes.
