If you're looking for side-by-side enthusiasts, you might want to check out the Vintage Skeet group in southwest Ohio. Ask around skeet clubs for a guy named Hal Hare. Lots of competitive skeet shooters know him. He'll show you where you can still have some fun with them.

I'm on Hal's email list. It never seems to work out for me to attend. Sure would like to attend one of them sometime.

I and a group of friends shoot side by sides regularly, skeet and sporting clays.

You should really try to show up sometime at one of Hal's shoots. They're a ton of fun including prizes for dressing up like what the people wore when the old SxS was new. Skeet shooters back then wore ties and the women shot in dresses. It's a hoot...

Grab all your buddies and go show up as your own squad.

So I take it you shoot a SxS some? What you shoot?

I have several but my favorite is a little W.J. Jeffery box lock 20 bore. It's only 5 1/4 pounds, hardly a target gun but I enjoy shooting it and it fits so I shoot it relatively well(for me)

Ed is a "gunsmith" that buys guns to "restore". He famous for his torch jobs In an attempt to renew a gun's case colors. Usually looks like a sick leopard.

Sorry to take so long to answer... I lost track of this topic.

Actually, I'm more of an over-and-under guy. When I've had a chance to play the vintage version of skeet, I've just borrowed someone's SxS. I suppose that I now have a reason to buy another gun.

I love the 20 gauge and would probably love the 28 gauge even more if the shells weren't so expensive even to reload.

I really like a nice SxS but I'm more of an O/U guy myself also. I had a nice little Fox Sterlingworth in a 20 ga. Couldn't shoot well with it though. I had a hard time with getting my head down consistently to get a good plane. My Browning comes right up to me naturally and I can hit what I'm shooting at with it. :)
