    Very few cars come with stick-shift anymore, so I would guess most do.

    Trap and Field Mag use to have an issue were they asked the All Americans what guns, chokes and shells they used. I don't subscribe anymore and don't remember what month but I think it was in the winter months.

    Quite a few all american sporting clays shooters shoot Beretta autos with great success.

    The real question should be do the All Americans who used to shoot an auto have devices on their guns that reduce recoil, which is a benefit of a gas auto.

    He keeps buying and trying expensive O/Us, but he seems to keep going back to his 1100. I guess when you have shot a certain type of gun a million times, it's hard to change, but he is a trap shooter. :) Mark

    I just find it curious that quite a few top Sporting Clay shooters use Beretta Auto's and few top Trap shooters use them...I just wonder why that is true...SMOKIT

    No problem with autos, except the throwing the empties at folks and the unreliability in doubles. Most of the pros wont tolerate the unreliability.
