    I got the shell catcher so a) I could save the shells for reloading and b) I wasn't being rude to other shooters by pelting them with my flying hulls.

    I can see how that could be distracting for a lefty shooting a right hand gun. That is commendable, I
    See lots of auto shooters that aren't so considerate.

    I started shooting doubles with my Old 391 and obviously couldn't use the shell catcher. My husband always took the post to my right so he was the one getting hit with the shells until I got another gun.

    I like to move new shooters towards a micro bt. Then as they out grow it you can add a recoil device like a clyde slide, slick slide and it will be a full LOP gun. Plus if they decide to move on its an easy to sell gun. You never get hurt $$ on a good BT99

    Is there any offerings from other companies similar to a bt99? After my experience with brownings customer service on another gun, I'm not to excited about buying one.

    Wish I would have thought about that last fall, had several chances to get into a new one for $900.
