I havent been shooting long and have already been through a few guns.
I have a Breda o/u around 1982. A G&S Holloway sxs sidelock,circa 1925.
Also,i have the Winchester sx3 Black Shadow semi auto.
I enjoy shooting clays at my local shooting ground and also have my own trap which i use on private land.
The Winchester is a lovely gun,does everything its supposed to do,but lacks any character or,dare i say,soul.
I have decided to px it for a AYA N0 3 in very nice condition.
I just feel more of a connection with the older guns.
Does this make sense to anybody or is it just me?

AYA No. 3s are not that common in this country but you still shouldn't have to add too much cash to make a deal.

Makes all sense to me. I own 7 SxSs and one single shot, youngest gun being 1938. Earliest made in 1893, couple made in 1898, another in 1903, 1915, 1933, & 1937.
