I have had both the Beretta 682 gold e. 32 sporter and trap models in 32". I found the sporter a very good gun but could not believe the poor quality of the cheap plastic coloured rings on the chokes which split and the writing came off on a gun of £2,3oo. This has now been modified to metal. The poor mecano set choke key was another severe dislike The gun is over priced new even discounted and you can pick up a second hand one for £12000 to £1400. It is among the ideal clay busting greats. Although if you have been shooting for a while and know your stuff it does not come close to the DT10 in every way and my advice if you are really in to clays is to wait and buy a DT10 second hand. The trap gun was not as comfortable to shoot as the sporter was and showed a definate felt recoil which the sporter did not . a must for the sporter is Teague chokes which pattern better than Beretta's own and you can shoot most sporting layouts in Skeet and Skeet and get good breaks easily with plastic wads which helps build the confidence.On hind sight for clays I would say a very good intermediates gun or first gun if you can afford it, once you get advanced you will upgrade , but the sporter is a really good gun and will take you a long way.
