    Not really. I am very inconsistent. Anywhere from 60 something out of 100 to 70 something out of 100. Only got into the 80's once that I can remember.

    I shoot Sporting Clays 3-4 times a month. Can't really say if it has helped my field shooting. Hasn't hurt it though.

    #4 shot in a 16ga.

    I am a poor judge of distance, but I would guess most of my shots are about 30-35 yards. I agree with you on the #6 & #5 shot, but I have a bunch of #4's I want to use up this coming season. Once I use them up I will stick with the #6's & #5's.

    Looking for a left hand Pheasant gun

    Yes, they are all the same size. I had 3 model 37's at one time, a 12ga., 16ga., & 20ga. I had all 3 converted to left hand safeties. I ordered the left hand safeties directly from Ithaca Gun Company. I sold the 12ga. but still have the 16 & 20.
