What’s not to love about the puff of orange dust that hangs in the air as you powder a clay pigeon?

Your game might be skeet, trap, five-stand or sporting clays. You might just enjoy flinging clay pigeons by hand across your back 40. No matter what you prefer, you need a gun made just for busting those flying targets. Well, you don’t necessarily need one, but you’ll take any excuse to buy a new shotgun.

All you have to do is figure out what type of action is best for you. Many competitive clays shooters rely on over/unders, but auto-loaders are a pretty common sight on skeet and trap ranges everywhere.

Why not? These days, they are just as reliable as a stack-barrel and offer all the features a target shooter needs. Check out these great shotguns for busting clays.
