Browning BT-99 32" or 34" barrel?




I tried Trap a couple of Sundays ago with my old Remington 870, and had a lot of fun. Since then I have been looking at the Browning BT-99 trap gun. It is available with either a 32" or 34" barrel. Which barrel length would you choose, and why?

it comes down to what points, and balances better for you. i used to have a 32" BT99, and have gone to a citori XT. now i will recommend a 34" to you, why? you ask. resale, people will pay more for a 34" barrel than a 32" barrel. when i sold my 32", i had a hard time getting rid of it as everyone wanted a 34".

When I was shooting a lot of ATA Trap, I preferred a 30" auto, 32" O/U, and 34" single. Now I am an occasional shooter and have gone back to a 28" auto, seldom shoot my old Broadway, and sold my single.
