Pump shotguns and collimator gun sights have been around since the 1890s. Sound suppressors, since the following decade. Putting it all together on a skeet gun had to wait till the 21st Century. Not traditional enough for the purists? Forget it, any complaints about technology ruining sport shooting and the struggle for moral purity have been invalidated by the transition from flint to percussion ignition with shorter lock time…everything since then has been just arguing about the appearances.
Sports have always been about having fun while training for something serious. Why not train with the tools that you would use for real, be they a custom Remington 870, a UTS15 or a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range?
