Hey I got FUDDER guns too! Never really shot trap or skeet, but I bird hunt with them all the time!

This is my old reliable. A Stevens O/U 2 barrel combo gun, fixed choke 20 and 12 ga. Made by Valmet- a great shooter, heavy as a jackhammer but durable.



And my precious- a Browning Citori Feather White Lightning- two barrel set in 20 and 28ga.


It's not 'Superposed' level but hey- it's what my budget could afford. Plus- it's immensely gratifying knocking down Sharptails and Pheasants with a gun that weighs less than 7 lbs and in 28ga. Super fun to shoot!

Then there's the mighty 'Thor' for late season pheasant and my go to goose gun. A Browning Silver auto-







I wouldn't classify that as a FUDDER though- it's workhorse field gun.

But hey- Shoot what you like, be proficient and have fun and SCREW anybody that poo-poo's you!

Citori’s are lovely they shoot very similarly to a Belgian made Super in any case and they are definitely FUDDish ... and I think yours is fantastic! Until Benelli came along nobody made a better Auto workhorse then Browning ... although 1100 owners will argue that ! LOL .... Believe it or not Military AR fans have their own versions of FUDD guns ... Noveske, Seekins and the mysterious appeal of KAC.

I even got my FUDD-ish LLBean upland tactical vest, lol. Ah it's all good sport.

Whatever floats your boat, have fun with it.

I had a Mossy 500 as my first goose gun and still have an old Belgium Browning humpback that I used upland. But walking 10+ field miles a day makes one appreciate a lighter scattergun, lol.

My first deer was taken with a Mossberg 500. My father’s. My brother has a son, I don’t. I gave him all of the inheritance guns except for that one.

I started my competition career at a young age in Bullseye. A discipline considered by many now to be dominated by Fudd types. But, when I started shooting action disciples like IPSC, Steel, bowling pins etc, I found my grounding in Bullseye was quite beneficial. My personal 1911 is built and tuned to compete in either Bullseye or action shooting.


I never got into trap or skeet much but I did hunt for quite some time. If having hunting oriented guns makes one a Fudd I'm guilty as charged. Lol, one can live in both worlds and not be a "Fudd."
