    Saw it at a local gun store the other day, same pricing as online, stopped tonight and got it. I have tried friend's Beretta auto, Franchi auto, a over and under don't know which brand and a 1100 you see here and liked the 1100 the best.

    I'm not as experienced shooting shotgun the way I am rifle and handgun, only been out shooting clay a few times, last time two years ago, called one of the old clay shooting buds and made plans to start going out again and decided it was time to use my own gun instead of borrowing lol.

    I'm not going to go collecting crazy with shotguns the way I do handgun and rifles but I may get a CZ O&U down the road also to have a couple clay busters. But for now the 1100 is gonna be my mean machine.

    I will need to school myself on appropriate chokes and things for the various clay shooting styles, so far I have done the blue course at Fishhawk range where clays fly from various ways.

    I tried one those out for a few birds on a trap field. It was a very nice shooting gun.

    When it comes O/U time, go right to Browning or Beretta and skip anything of lesser cost. I would rather have a used Browning than two new Turkish shotguns.

    You just bought yourself one of the best clay target busting shotguns ever made....especially for the money.
    I have used mine primarily for sporting Clays, but also for a few rounds of trap.

    #1 son used mine at the Illinois state ATA shoot in 2018 to break his first 25x25.....followed immediately by his second 25x25 for 50x50.
    I love mine....light modified stays in the gun for the most part.
    Congrats and enjoy!
    You did good.
    I would buy another in a heartbeat.

    thanks! I knew after shooting it it would be my first purchase as a clay shooting shotgun, later I might add a couple more kinds but that is later. Heard good things about CZ shotguns also, wouldn't mind a over & under without spending thousands of dollars, doing some clay shooting will be a nice change of pace from all the rifle and handgun shooting I do

    Congrats on obtaining your Remington 1100. They are a good choice for a semi-auto for clay shooting. Enjoy.

    When it comes to over/unders for clays guns, don't get too cheap. Remember, many clay shooters shoot ammunition by the pallet load and the reliability of the shotgun is important. It is why the top shooters have over/unders that cost serious money.

    Inexpensive over/unders are not up to the task. Browning Citori's and Beretta 686's are generally considered the minimum over/unders for the clay games unless you plan on shooting just a few hundred rounds per year with the gun.

    I too have one, used for Trap, Sporting Clays, and pheasant hunting.
    I use the Full for Trap. Stuck with IM (Does not come with the gun, Remington sells it right on the website) for SC, and Mod for pheasant. I shoot Remington Nitro 27 and Win. AA Super Handicap for Trap and Remington Nitro Gold for SC and pheasant. The Auto-Buster recoil device cuts the recoil of these handicap shells down to nothing. I use 4 washers on each post for trap, and just two on each for SC and pheasant. My Trap avg. went up from 21.5 to 22.8 this past summer because of my Competition. I'm still buying a Ljutic this spring, because I've always wanted one, but the 1100 Competition Synthetic will still be my workhorse.

    I don't have a "competition" but I do have three 1100s, one I have set up for trap, one for skeet and a 20 with a mod and a skeet barrel for fun. I'm picking up a trap model I sold to a friend years back that he can no longer use. Next to my 870TB, they are my favorite guns. Even ahead of my BT and my Lightning.
