    Dennis Whitlock of Missouri shoots a Remington 1100. Is he Leo Harrison? No, but go look at his average.

    Daro Handy set the long run record from the 27 yard line in the ATA with one of his tricked out Remington 1100's and as most folks are aware Leo Harrison shot an 1100 for may years.There are many very,very good shooters in all shoting sports who use them. Jeff

    Daro no longer shoots one becuase al Timmney can no longer trick out his triggers the way he liked them. He has been forced to shot a Perazzi and he says it kicks about 25% more then his 1100's did. Jeff

    Daro shot a 1100, with raised rib, Timney trigger, etc., for years. He always treated the gun as an important instrument. Usuall broke it down and cleaned it after each 100. - Jim

    Don't matter what tube you fling your rocks from. It's the Indian not the arrow.

    I thought Tom Magnum had a 9mm,it was TC with the .45 and I believe Higgins had a .22Short.

    Nope magnum had the .45 but TC may have had one as well. Since Higgie baby was british I suspect a Walther PPK. P.S My name has 22 letters in it so I guess that makes me a big name shooter and I shot auto's. Jeff

    Look up George and Jacque Snellenberger records, both shot 1100s for many years. I think Jacque started shooting a Beretta DT-10 a few years ago.
