    I'm 2 years new to trap shooting and have been reading threads on here for a few months. I shoot in a league that is put on at work and looking to maybe start shooting some registered targets around the central Illinois area. I'm currently shooting a older Remington Sportsman, 28inch barrel, with a full choke. I use this gun for trap and upland birds then swap barrels to go deer hunting. I'm wanting to get a dedicated trap gun and am partial to Remington, grew up shooting nothing but Remington. So on to my question, I'm looking into getting either a 1100 Competition or a Beretta 391? I understand that it would be best to go to a range and try both but thought I would get some expert opinion. Thanks for your time.

    Nothing wrong with either gun, hard to go wrong here.

    If you are already comfortable with the way a Remington handles that's where I'd go. I'd also look into getting a M/C stock for the comp instead of the modified field stock they come new. A little higher POI is desireable in the trap game.

    Welcome aboard!

    ec90t is "right on". Beretta customer service does seem to get a lot of negative comments here on TS.com. Best Regards, Ed

    OldGoat,

    Beretta's customer service has sucked for quite some time. This is nothing new for those in the know. Besides this forum has a good Beretta auto specialist in the ranks. Tron is very knowledgible about these guns and what he can't fix, Coles can. Very rarely is something with a new gun of quality.

    DomeBuster,

    You can't go wrong either way. If you get a chance, shoot both, and see which one you like best.

    I’ve been shooting 680 series Beretta’s since 1995 but when it comes to autoloaders I would definitely go with the 1100.
