    Question Opinions from the group on CZ-USA MALLARD 12g 28" (Huglu) for Sporting Clays

    Being a bit budget conscious and having a darned time with all the terminology, and also being a BIG CZ fan. I would like this groups thoughts on the CZ Mallard 12g 28" as an entry into the shotgun world. I'm visiting some friend in CT next month that want to take me to their SC club for an introduction. Also, from what I can tell online, I think I would really enjoy getting down to Okeechobee on occasion.

    I really don't understand the nuances of all the different shotguns but I would like to, in order of preference;

    1. Shoot Sporting Clays
    2. Go duck or pheasant hunting some day.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    I'd like to order one this week so I can bring one up with me on my late April trip.

    It sounded a lot funnier in my head.

    I am not familiar with that particular shotgun but if its made by CZ, I suspect its a winner.

    I see mostly Beretta, FN, Browning Citori's, and the less expensive Stoegers, and models from Turkey when I visit Tampa Bay. Surprising a lot of folks are still using the field Winchesters and Remington's.

    If you can afford to spend in the $2500 to $5,000 bracket you get a much prettier shotgun with all kinds of bling.

    I find in most cases its the shooter not the shotgun that makes the scores. If you are in the heavy mix of competition the higher priced shotguns will give you the edge. Lighter weight, better fit, slicker triggers, etc.

    I did a search and see the CZ Mallard is a very reasonably priced shotgun in the $500-$600 range.

    Sounds to me like a good investment for a shotgun you can use for hunting and competition.
