In my state I get 4 weeks to hunt birds. I just don't see the point BUT also I have never used some of the guns talked about n this forum.
each to their own I guess. Value is in the eye of the beholder. I will show up at the trap/skeet club, see a guy driving an 80's rust-bucket gmc/ford/chevy/dodge truck with no muffler, be wearing stained overalls and pull out a $15k "K" gun (Kreighoff or Kolar) out of a fitting case and go shoot trap. It's what he has decided he wants to spend his money on. Now if I were buying my FIRST gun, I wouldn't be getting anything fancy, but I have upgraded over the years and if I would have gotten a grade 2 boxlock, I would have been wishing I would have just bout the grade 4. Is it any better? Subjective to say the least! Both swing and go bang, each hit's targets when pointed right and trigger(s) pulled. One is just a little more refined and finished, feels good in my hands, and is something I am proud of, but not arrogant of. I am just happy to see people interested in the shooting sports and out hunting.
