You ment Coyote Clays, not coyote Creek, right.

If you want to pay 5-10% more for the same gun and twice as regular transfer fee, sure, buy there. At least it was the situation i checked last time.

For regular off shelf guns they asked $70-100 more than LGS or Bass Pro,

The regular gun Franchi Affinity 12 ga, they had to order it (They did not have 12 Ga in stock, only 20) they asked close to $1K just because it is a "special order". $719 at bass Pro

Transfer fee is $100 or $140, i do not remember exactly, i ran away so fast LOL....

Above, corrected (by Bigbear) to Coyote Valley (sporting Clays).

Ya...they're a bit pricey, but you can actually try/rent (some) guns there and much less formal than LGS. Buy wherever you're inclined to.

Keep in mind most of calguns doesn't hunt. They just regurgitate crap they read on the internet.

Find a gun that fits you (if you don't understand that, have somebody teach you) so that when you throw up the gun and open your eyes the bead/beads are lined up so you will be on the bird.

Go with a semi-auto. I kill a lot of birds on that 3rd shot and it's nice to have when they are hurt and trying to get away.

So many options!

I've personally only hunted upland game and not waterfowl so my advice is probably pretty limited compared to some others in this thread. I personally use an old Winchester Ranger 120 pump action and I love it! I've also hunted with a Remington 1100 and a Browning Citori. Pump actions are great and plenty quick when you get used to them. Semi is probably better if you want to spend the money. For some reason I seem to be most accurate with a good over under. I'm not sure why that is. The most important thing in to me is comfort. Get your hands on some shotguns at a gun shop and see what feels good to you!

Good luck and shoot safe!

Winchester 120Ranger. Wow! That was my first 12ga. A fine shotgun for sure. I think I traded it for my Ruger Blackhawk 38/357. Darn good SG tho.

Actually when i was there last time, the guns you could rent were only for the clay shooting purposes O/U and only A300 was a demo gun with $25 try tag on it.
So actually you cannot rent different guns to compare, at least it was 4-6 month ago when i was there.

However 7 years ago it was i different situation, they had a better variety of demo guns and it was free. They even threw in 7-10 free rounds. It is how i bought my Maxus from them.
Unfortunately not anymore.

Better to meet up with some calgunners over there and try their guns. Also to get some 101 advice and experience. I'm sure there are many guys who would be willing to help and has solid knowledge on the subject.

Getting my first shotgun this weekend: Beretta A300 synthetic. Thanks to all posters on this thread for the enlightening discussion.

Can't wait to bust some clays and give some ducks a minor fright.

Congrats on the new gun! The A300 works well in the field, and is a good clay crusher!

The best upland shotgun for under $1,000 is the Benelli Montefeltro - I don't thing anything else on the market comes close. It's also very easy to strip down and clean, very few parts. Heavy waterfowl - get the Benelli M2 instead.

V3 at buds currently $540 for black version. With Basspro $40 transfer it is $580. You cannot bit this and it is much better gun then A300 IMO.

There are some good ranges around the Sacramento area. What area are you in?

As soon as I get the ok from the doc, I'll Be getting back to shooting some 5-stand. When I do (next week.....possibly) it will be with my A300 (lighter & a little softer than the O/U).

Don't forget about the doves. They will get you warmed up for the ducks. Also there is an early season goose hunt.

I tried a Remington 870 synthetic, which felt good and seemed to fit me well. I also shot a Beretta A391 which also felt good. And I had shot a few of my friends' over-unders back in Australia.

My biggest concern was getting a gun that fit me well. When I mounted the A300, a competitive shotgun instructor checked the fit and confirmed if fit me really well, and said it could be made to be perfect with the adjustments you're able to make on the A300. Plus I was keen to get a semi-automatic in case I wanted to try skeet (I know many people do really well shooting skeet with a pump, but I feel more comfortable with a semi).

I'm just north of Sacramento proper. I've never tried 5-stand. I'll have to give it a shot once I get used to the new A300. Hope you get the all-clear soon!

Glad it fits you but how well did you shoot it?
