    As did Daro Handy with a highly customized, left hand 1100. Gerald Smallwood of considerable fame and doubles champ uses a box stock B.303 in his doubles shooting. How about Zookie who took the doubles champinship at the Grand American a few years back with another Beretta....Bob Dodd

    I'm pretty sure Tron shoots a Beretta 391 Semi Auto...

    Steve Fischer shoots a Winchester Super X Model 1...

    One of your industial strength Big Dogs, LEO???, was using one until it was stolen. I believe he switched to something else then. Does anybody know why he didn't go back to an 1100? It would seem an 1100 would be one of the easier guns to replace.

    I believe Leo is fooling around with a UGB 25 for doubles. Still shooting the DT-10 for everything else.

    They get tired of keeping them clean and running for doubles.

    Daro, Now shoots a Perazzi... They just are not used much anymore by any of the really good shooters..

    Drew

    Come on Drew! You must know Daro well enough to know that he shoots the P-gun only because he can't get the 1100 release triggers that he likes. He also doesn't like how much the P-gun kicks even after all the work he did to soften it. Trust me... If Daro could have the triggers he used to get for the 1100 he would still be shooting them.

    Yes, but for those of us with King Arthur's disease in their shoulder joints, they can amount to a welcome extension of one's shooting career. I know the day will come when I will no longer be able to shoot a hinge gun without pain and have fixed my 1100TT up as a turn-key replacement.

    I also have a 1100 a 303 and a SX1 ready for my old age shooting. I have set them up with custom wood releases porting the works. It was great fun getting set up and I shoot them as good as I can shoot anything it's just I prefer break open guns maybe when I'm a senior vet I will need them. I do see lots of older shooters using them these days of greater longgevity in life and shooting.

    Steve I agree with your thoughts regarding the Remington 1100, I have shot many O/U guns and can't find 1 of them that will shoot a good as the 1100 for me. It may just be my style of shooting or whatever. Some guys swear by there Beretta O/U or other manufactures guns but the 1100 just shoots period. It is a very forgiving trap gun, you can be off a little and still get a break. The maintenance of the gun is pretty easy with a little knowledge and care. thanks Frank

    I have never had a problem shooting an 1100 on voice activated fields, perhaps because my routine has been to close the bolt when the shooter in front of me shoots the target. The 1100 is a great gun, seldom breaks, easily fixed and not all that time consuming to clean.
