Default Stumbled into a Super Fox

As fate would have it I am now the proud owner of a Super Fox that was the topic of discussion here a few months ago. (See "Dark Side") What a beast and fun gun to shoot. I met my FFL guy at his shooting club to pick it up and proceeded to miss the first trap target and then break 22 of the next 24 targets. At least 5 of which completely disappeared. Those chokes something else. The guys on the line were definitely interested in what I was shooting. Haha.

I can't wait to thump a few Canada's with it.
30" tubes, 3" chambers, I don't have any barrel thickness information.

During it's short time in my possesion I shot a couple rounds of skeet and a little five stand with the gun . Double's skeet at 3 , 4 and 5 are a blast . The bird literally cannot outrun the pattern if you're on . I shot quite a few second birds within a couple feet of the ground and powdered them . now on the downside if you spot shoot to quick and don't bear down close targets can be missed easily .
