CZ makes some killer shotguns that won't break the bank. Love our CZs. Top notch quality at a much better price point. My son and I shoot clays all the time. We have our own thrower and purchase shotgun shells by the case (250). I use a 12 gauge, he has a 20 gauge. Honestly, there's NO advantage to my 12 gauge over his 20 when shooting clays. My shoulder is just more sore when we get done shooting. I'm actually thinking about getting myself a 20 gauge after seeing how well his shoots.
