    Winchester Select Light

    I've been clay shooting for a while and I use a lincoln no2 which fits me and I do well with .ive seen a winny light and am thinking of upgrading but I'm wondering about recoil with a light gun ,so if anyone has one or has used a lightweight shotgun for clays ,please advise me ,as I don't wanna spend my money and then regret it cheers Alfie
  4. I've been clay shooting for a while and am thinking of upgrading my shotgun,I currently use a lincoln no 2 ,which fits me and doing ok with it .ive looked at a winny select light and I'm tempted but I'm thinking about the recoil is this gun going to kick like a mule ,I've no experience of lightweight guns ,so if any one uses one or has used one I would appreciate your comments before I spend my hard earnt cash I don't want to buy it then wish I hadn't ,thanks

    Coursing "ammo"

    I used to have 2 Lurchers which is ok if you got the work for them ,I only have the 1now, I suppose it depends on how much time you put into the dogs,I live on my own so I can pretty much do as I please lol

    Recommendations ?

    Just take your time pick lots of shotguns up and don't rush into buying one ,I started clay shooting and looked around at different shotguns and ended up buying a silma sporter which is a budget clay gun ,and I realy struggled with it I found it to heavy and clumpy and it knocked my shoulder around a bit ,so I swapped it for a lincoln premier game gun which is a lot lighter and my scores have realy improved I shot 28 outta 5o the other week and the gun feels right for me,it's all about gun fit ,if you rush into it you will end up buying twice and loose money
