    I will second the Beretta SA guns. I bought a AL390 about 30 years ago. Still runs like a champ. My son weighed about 120 lbs at age 14, and he shot my 390 with ease.

    The family bought me a 400 last year, and its a work of art. Have only shot it once, but plan to more this fall.

    The recoil on the Beretta SA's is very light.

    Sounds like you were shooting sporting clays. 50 is pretty good for your first time out.

    I used to go to a benefit clay shoot at Elm Fork for Big Brothers/Big Sisters. That sporting clays course they have was pretty awesome. Heard they made it even better after they flooded.

    It was fun. Know I need to learn the difference in the types of shooting

    Yep, much better. Speaking of which, you caught up yet?

    New hunting licenses came out on the 15th :)

    Not catching up at all, and about to lose half my staff to having babies. Brought in one replacement this week for training. Going to be a rough two months.
