    Very rarely a gun comes along that shoots right where I am looking. I have owned two such guns since 1972. The first was a Perazzi Mirage, the second a Franchi 500 auto. With the Franchi I shot 2600 reg ATA targets one year for an average of 98.6%. I had to part with the Franchi as it was impossible to keep it running for much more than 500 shells (parts breakage). When it looked as though I may never shoot again due to shoulder problems I sold the Mirage and most of my other guns as well.

    Well I'm back after 30yrs of no shooting and in the last few months I have struggled with shooting lefty or righty, gone through an 1100, two BT-99's, three TM-1's, and finally a Ljutic Mono Gun. With all but the Ljutic I logged about 1000 reg singles targets late in the 2010 season. My average was awful (78 or there abouts). Late in the summer of 2010 I came across an old Ljutic (1974) with an X-full fixed choke (.048" restriction). About the same time I bought a barrel off of GB (original Ljutic choke, .022" restriction). It fit my gun perfectly so now I had a two barrel set. Sent the set to Ljutic right away for the full treatment minus redoing the wood. I bought a new style PFS from this site and never looked back. For the last 30 days I have not shot less than 23X25 with a lot of 24's and 25's as well (singles). Still learning the HC 27 (mostly in the low 20's with an occasional 24X25). This gun shoots right where I am looking (occasionally I still look in the wrong place). I am so pleased with this gun and the way I am shooting it that this one will never get away. If not for having a son to leave it to it would go to the grave with me. I guess the main reason for this soliloquy is: If you ever find that one very special gun, KEEP IT.

    I can hardly wait for our ATA season (FL) to begin. Marc

    I did, and it's also a Ljutic Mono. I've been shooting it 25+ years. 100's of thousands of rounds through it before it was rebuilt this past winter. Now it's like new again.
