Re: browning A5

One of my vendors just picked up the A5 and loves it. Hasn't had it long though. I'm going to try and get him to a clays course sometime and do the old... "how's that thing shoot". Hopefully he'll let me shoot it.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

Re: browning A5

you can shoot clays,doves,geese, and ducks with 3". No problem.

I'm looking at the A5 or the Maxus next. Both feel real nice but I'd like to shoot a A5.
Currently shoot an SBE2.

My spot I expect the same

Re: browning A5

i prefer 2 3/4 for doves and clays ha shooting clays with 3 inch can become a bit pricey

Re: browning A5

Sorry meant a 3" gun. Every 3" gun i have owned shot 2 3/4 just fine.
3 1/2 is not needed.

Re: browning A5

I run a Browning Maxus Sporting with a 30 inch barrel and a 3 inch chamber. I use it for birds and clays and love it. Break down and clean up is a breeze. Shoots and swings so nicely. Plus it's a beautifull gun.

Re: browning A5

A a-5 Browning 3" mag is a very heavy shotgun. I have owned one and it is fine for station gunning but for covering ground, it is a chore. IMP. Doc in Pa.
