I am looking at Remington 1100s. I have an old (~1976) Remington 1100 20 gauge that I have been shooting since I was 12. So after about 25 years of shooting this gun, I am pretty used to it. It has a 26" IC barrel. I am now thinking of getting something new. I love the handling of the 1100, and really don't see me buying anything else. I shot a 12 gauge Beretta AL391 Urika, and did not like it. I thought it was too bulky, slower to get on target, and just didnt like the way it handled. I think what I would like is another 1100, but something more versatile than what I have. I would like to use for dove, quail, skeet, and maybe turkey. I think I want a 26" barrel mainly because I think I can get on target quicker with a 26" than with a 28", but would like screw in chokes. I am considering the 1100 Sporting 12. How does the 12 gauge compare in terms of handling to the 20 gauge? Is the receiver bulkier? Is it slower on target? I am also considering the 1100 G3, either in 20 or 12 gauge. This can handle 3" shells. Has anyone shot a g3? How does it compare to the regular 1100?
