I've been shooting skeet for about a year now and I'm thinking about shooting some registered targets. I have a Citori 12ga that I shoot pretty well and have a 20ga version. I was thinking of getting some Briley 28ga and 410 ga full length inserts. My question is should I get the tube for the Citori or try to find a complete package i.e. new gun with tubes already fit? Are the chamber inserts really worth the money?

If you are going to shoot registered skeet, then you should probably get the full length tubes. If it is registered sporting clays, then the Seminole ChamberMates work just fine. I've got the 12/20 ChamberMates and have used them with considerable success in registered sporting clays.

You can shoot 12 and 20 at any registered shoot now.
Attend a shoot and only shoot one gauge to begin with.

Shoot two gauges when you feel comfortable.

Most registered skeet shoots do not require all four
gauges unless you want to compete for HOA.

Think about buying a tube set after you decide if you
enjoy registered shoots. Remember, a full length tube set will
cost about $1600. If your Citori is a field grade 1 for instance,
it may not be the best choice as the platform for a tube set.
Most competitors do shoot guns that have full length tubes.
It's an individual choice.

I've participated in a few registered shoots and have had a great time.
I bet you will enjoy it too.
