Sporting clays is about as much fun as you can have with a shotgun short of pointing one at ducks or upland birds. And as an owner of an XT Trap smoothbore, I can attest that Utah-based Browning’s Citori guns, while not inexpensive, provide plenty of bang for your shotgun buck. With its adjustable comb and grade V/VI black walnut stock and fore end, their new 725 Sporting Golden Clays is designed for the shooter who wants just a little bit more. And is willing to pay for it.
Here’s their press release:
