    I have a really nice 1100 field gun. It is 2 3/4inch only with a 28 inch vent ribbed barrel. It is marked full but has been opened up to modified by a gunsmith. I would need to get $375 out of it to part with it. If interested shoot me an email at XXpro-hunting@hotmail.comXX Make sure to leave off the X's at the front and back of the address or I will not get it.

    I can think of better guns than 1100's for hunting. I had one, hated it. I did not like the location of the safety. It's not in a natural position for quick shots, not like a good tang safety. I just didn't feel good leaving it off while hunting grouse and pheasants and can't tell you how many birds I've lost farting around with that damn thing.
    I'd look at a good semi, pump or o/u that have safeties where they belong.

    I bought an 1187 as a backup gun and is now my hunting gun.

    I've used for Pheasants, Geese, Ducks, and now deer. The 3" chamber was great for geese and the occassional turkey. Follow-up shots were great and it's never failed on me.

    Never had a problem with the safety location. Threw slugs well for me. I use open sights, but 50 yards produced a 4" group off-hand.
