    I suspect it's another case of reversed imagery.

    Beretta got many calls about their LH 391 when they did that for Casey Atkinson cover for sporting clays magazine...IIRC

    At night, it's amazing to see how much flame comes out the ejection port of an 1100. I don't notice it during the daytime. Mark

    Its not just the M1100 Oregunner, the 391 belches a nice flame too. You get a great view of this if you are a lefty like me. Great reminder of why eye protection is a must.
