Using a Double Trigger Shotgun as Training for a Doubel Rifle
Someone gave me what I though was a great idea.
I'm brand-spanking new to DR's and am doing a cape/elephant/croc hunt next year in Zimbabwe with Chifuti. I've recently aquired a K-Gun 470NE and plan to spend the next year practicing and training but at $5-$10/round, it's pretty darn $$$$$! The re-loading cost obviously is less when recycling the brass (about $2-$3) but still...
The idea is to acquire an O/U shotgun with a double trigger (like this one: CZ-USA -> Mallard) and use it for clays so as to get used to "acquiring" the second trigger and eventually making it second nature. At $500, it's not too pricey and can shoot 100's and 100's of 20/28 guage shells for a fraction of 470 rnds.
I'm already a competitive skeet shooter (I use a K-80) so practically speaking, shooting a few boxes with this CZ is not too difficult at my club.
My questions are:
-Has anyone tried this?
-Any big "cons" that I'm missing?
The only downside that I see is that it may very well mess up my skeet shooting as my K-80 has a single trigger.
Thanks in advance for your input.
