    #1: 1100 (including 11-87 variants)

    #2: 391 & earlier variants (390, 303, 302, etc)

    #3: Other semiautos that fit

    #4: 870/Model 12 or other pumps that fit

    #5: O/Us that fit

    #6: Single barrels that fit

    #7: Combo guns (Single bbl & O/U)

    In that order. I'm not a fan of hinge guns, but if you are going to shoot one, get an O/U only and use it for everything because if you go the combo or singles then another gun for doubles, you need to learn to shoot two guns.

    Jim Carmichael once wrote and I agree : "70% of all shooters will shoot better with an 1100" I am one of them. Been there, done that, shot many hinge guns to "fit" in - the 1100 blows them all away. They don't break on the line if you know preventative maintenance - I'll argue they are MORE reliable than an O/U, or other expensive hinge gun, which to me, are antiquated, 19th century hold over status symbols whose locks and springs and pins are just as subject to wear and breakage as any 1100 and often not easily replaced.

    They kick hard and usually are not balanced well for shooting - if they were, there wouldn't be this entire industry devoted to recoil reducers, recoil reducing stocks, low recoil shells, backboring barrels, lengthening forcing cones, etc. And then there is the other industry to morph and change the physical dimensions of their stocks and pads so that they actually can be managed by the shooter and look freaking ridiculous. I can pull a garden variety 1100 off the rack and am good to go as is with NONE of the above concerns.

    If more people shot 1100s the game's population and participation would INCREASE

    Just my slightly biased opinion :)

    Stoeger ... Spartan ... Mossberg

    Might not be in that particular order but they are all the very best bang for the buck guns in regards to fit, functionality and overall value for the high dollar shooter.

    This question is impossible to answer unless more guidelines are set to give an opinion; i.e. does cost enter into the equation? If cost is a factor along with reliability and proven success, I would list the following 3 guns. Model 12, Remington 870 and the BT-99. If using only one gun for all disciplines of trap shooting, and again with cost as a consideration my choices would be, Beretta 682 O/U, Citori and Winchester Super X-1. If cost is somewhat taken out of the equation I would pick, Kolar, Kreighoff and Perazzi. My opinion. Ed

    An expensive gun is nice to handle and shoot, but a slide gun is hard to beat for dependability! Nothing is more fun that shooting doubles with a slide gun!

    Too many unknowns to provide accurate data.

    The "best", for you and me, is the one we shoot well, I suppose.

    The "best" gun makes you look good when taking the winners photos after the smoke clears. Honey does this gun make me look fat?
