As Easy As Pointing Your Finger

Sep 20, 2022 8:27:46 PM / by Bill Miller posted in Shotguns

0 Comments

On some days – all too rare days – wingshooting seems so easy. It’s as easy as pointing your finger and thinking, “bang!” When that happens, it’s because the clays seem as big as trashcan lids or the pheasants seem to fly in slow motion.

Does How You Break Targets Matter?

In trap, skeet, and sporting clays breaking 100 out of 100 targets in a round is a perfect score. It’s an accomplishment any shooter (especially a new shooter) can be proud of. Heck, don’t even worry about 100 straight – 25 and 50 straights are pretty sweet, too.

How to Select Choke Tubes

Aug 15, 2022 5:45:25 PM / by Bill Miller posted in Shotguns

Like all respectable companies, Beretta has had its share of logos: the shield with the letters "PB" (for Pietro Beretta, the father of the industrialized Beretta,) the duck with open wings, and the more simple "Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta" are some of the representations that many of our readers will recognize. And then, there's the "Trident," which (truth be told) is not a trident at all.

9 Tips for a Better Dove Hunting Season

Aug 2, 2022 9:33:06 AM / by Beretta Blog posted in Hunting, Shotguns

0 Comments

My favorite way to kick off the hunting season is a dove hunt. My very first wingshooting experience was a dove hunt with a 16 gauge single barrel and a tobacco field. I think I managed to put three doves on the ground with two boxes of shotgun shells. At the end of the afternoon, I had a sore shoulder and a love for the fast flying birds that fly so hard they squeak.
