Default Coach Gun Trap shooting??

Anyone ever used a Stoeger Coach Gun for trap shooting? I recently bought one and I'm just itching to shoot it.

try er out...cant hurt! might not swing well...but you can try. i learn to shoot trap with a single shot 20ga with a full choked barrel and high brass #6 shot. it was backyard trap with a thrower...but thats how i learned. i honestly think that how i got to be decint at it. if you can bust em with a full choke and highbrass 6s a IC and 7 1/2s or 8s in a 12ga seems easy

im not the greatest...but i can hold my own. dad still says thats my gift and i need to pursue it....trap, sporting clays, skeet...i just bust them clays...first time i went skeet shooting i held my own shooting with my buddy, who shot atleast once a week since he could hold a shotgun...

i got a pic laying around somewhere of me shooting clays with a mossberg 590...id say you can definently use your coach gun

I wouldn't shoot handicap with it, but try it out at 16 and lead the birds a little.

If you're a practiced trap shooter, you may do suprisingly well from the 16 yd. line if you are fast enough. You're gonna have to break them as soon as they clear the traphouse. If you try to shoot past the 16, I feel you are going to be disappointed. That, however, was never the purpose in the design of that gun. It was made primarily for close-ranged work and from what I've read, was quite up to it's task. It was for the most part an "in-your-face" gun.

Its far from the ideal gun to trap shoot. But might work. I have played around with a 870 home defense gun with pistol grip shooting trap for the snickers and grins of it.

did you get the supreme or the standard coach gun? if you have the supreme you have some choke options at hand.
