I have a Winchester SuperX2, which is the twin of the Browning Gold. Great gun! No experience with the other 2 but from what I have heard the Beretta is a good choice. Heard too many stories about the 1100. Like, have a tool kit on hand with all the extra parts needed to replace whatever may fail.
It will be mostly target gun but also used for hunting purposes. She feels most comfortable shooting semi-auto. I think the lessened recoil has a good part to play it it as well. She doesn’t like the feel of any of my o/u guns.
Why does it have to be an auto ? For hunting ?
I have a question for all who enjoy shooting shotguns and can possibly chime in here...
I am looking at getting a 20 ga for my girlfriend to shoot and I am sure I'll grab it once in a while too. Semi-auto is a must tho.. I have an idea of three choices and I am looking for input pertaining to reliability and function. I can not stand malfunctions!!!
Choice #1. Beretta 391 Urika 2
Choice #2. Remington 1100
Choice #3. Browning Gold Hunter
Let me know your choice and why.. Thanks gang..
Decided to join Waukesha Gun Club's summer sporties league this year. For a warm up my friends talked me into shooting a round of trap. I haven't done a round of trap in ages... Finished with a 22, I'll take that!
Went on to shoot a double round of sporties and I was focused and feeling good about the day. I ended up with a 49 and a 48. It was one of those days where I could have shot all day... It felt perfect.. Hopefully all of the up and coming weeks will feel the same. I am so glad that I shot winter league... not much rust to knock off.
Came out of handicap with a 90 yesterday. Happy with that. Not good 1st house in doubles but 46 on the back. I'll work off that.
Shot 50 of each in practice today. 46 in doubles! Shooting tomorrow registered targets again.
Agreed Ed!!! Sporting Clays is a favorite of mine too! 5 Stand is a close 2nd for me. I will shoot trap and skeet but I can take it or leave it...
Work off the rust Tim, that's all we can do. If it wasn't for me shooting 5 stand all winter long I would really be out of form. I am able to roll into sporties pretty easily after the winter shooting leagues.. Gotta say tho, I miss shooting the 28ga in the 5 stand. Shooting the 12 at sporties is fun but hmmmmmm, I really fell in love with 28ga.
I use to shoot trap and skeet a bunch. I really like shooting sporting clays much better that any of them. I am not good by any means but sure do like to do it.
Started with a 20 on the 1st trap, OUCH! Dropped 2 on 2nd and ran the last 50 for a 93.That was in 16's. Handicap ended with an 88, ran the 2nd trap. Not good scores but rust played a major factor. Hit the targets hard, just gotta cut down on mistakes. It's still early.
