    Starting to try shooting sporting clays--got a682 Gold E with a DeVault stock & Delrin rib, with a Spears release--thinking of getting my old Devault 391 conversion back

    The 682 weighs the same as my Infinity, while the 391 is about one lb lighter

    All the guns are set up for trap

    Will I be wasting my time with the above guns, or should I get a dedicated sporting gun

    Get a dedicated sporting gun. Many are available used at good prices. Buy smart and don't try a new sport with the wrong tool ! NEW FRIENDS AND EXPERIENCES AWAIT ! And it may improve your trapshooting skills ! J M H O !

    Phil, You know enough Sporting shooters, so ask a few if you may shoot their guns, and go from there.

    My advise is just don't toss money into it, without trying different Sporting guns first.

    It doesn't tale an expensive gun to be a good shooting gun.

    Now on the other hand, we don't need to loose another trap shooter to sporting, so don't get too comfy...LOL

    Lots of high rib guns on the sporting circuit now.Try what you have just lower your point of impact if you can if it's really high. Most shoot around 60/40.

    You're asking the same question twice, and the answer is 'yes'.
