They are nice guns and mine fit me right out of the box, I must be the Joe Average they use at Browning. My Trap scores jumped when I switched from my Rem 870TB (with custom fitted stock) to the Citori 525 Sporting. I bought the 525 for Skeet; shooting Skeet with the 870 was fun, especially shooting doubles with a pump, but the balance, fit, trigger et al of the Browning made for a nice package. So my Skeet scores improved because I was shooting a gun better suited to that game, and my Trap scores improved too even with the short 28" tubes.

Since you asked, the veracity of that image has been called into question. Without getting into the politics, which we are not going to do, here's a link to a politicized article that discusses this issue. http://bit.ly/UNPhH6

Feel free to discuss the substance of the issue, is the image real, but please do avoid discussing the politics.

Doug's link doesn't work because of this site's automatic censor.

It seems to me a lot easier to have someone pose than to photoshop a picture and take the risk of getting caught and having it backfire. If PHRASECENSOREDPOSTERSHOULDKNOWBETTER. has good public relations folks (and he does), they'd know this.

Anyway, to really get into this issue the discussion will become political. Let's just admire the gun, whether photoshopped or not. I want a Citori, too. I've been wanting to shoot trap or skeet, but the investment is just too high. Maybe I'll get the CZ...

I ordinarily would not challenge or be critical of a comment by Doug Ritter. However, in this case I will.

1. To attempt to dicuss the issue but "...avoid discussing the politics" is not possible.

2. Why would anyone even care if the image were real, were it not for the politics? If there were a picture of the individual in question swinging a golf club, I doubt anyone would bother to examine the photo in any detail. The politics are the only reason it is an issue at all.

3. To discuss the issue with the automatic political censor in place is a waste of time. Anyone who tries to post a link to support their argument (pro or con) will have the link automatically disabled. Edit: See number four below.

4. The topic of this forum is survival. That is why most of us are here. There are a million other forums to discuss President PHRASECENSOREDPOSTERSHOULDKNOWBETTER., gun control, politics, religion etc.
