    My wife tried out my new/used 1100 Trap last weekend. She busted a BUNCH with the modified barrel (28") and even more with the full (30"). She had me put HER Morgan pad on and asked me to get some Hiviz sights (yes, she knows that sights don't do too much, but she likes the way they look). As I was filing away on the Morgan plate it dawned on me that I might have just lost possession of what I had thought was my sporting clays gun. This is a good thing. She will surely shoot more because of the nature of the 1100 and I may have a BT99 for sale soon (32").

    That means I may also be looking again for a sporting clays gun. My Citori is a little short for my taste, but still a great skeet gun. What about longer barrels for the Citor? Hmmm.

    M1100s are so much happier when there are at least 2 of them in the gun safe - better get another one.

    I know this sounds crazy but I have six or seven 1100's and don't shoot them much at all as I hate to have to pick up the hulls anymore. LOL When I do shoot a 1100 I normally do very well, in the 90's with all four guns(yeah skeet) and 16 yard line. The good thing of your wife assuming ownership is it opens the door for a new gun for you. Jackie B.

    My other has shot trap since she was 12 with her dad and tell ya what when I want a new gun all I am asked is "Well if you buy that will you be broke?" and "Is this 1 going to be better then the last 1?" we get along great and werent planning on going to NYS shoot but SHE wanted to go worse then I did.

    When Mama is happy youll be happy! Words my dad told me years ago.

    My wife grabbed my K-32 w/release about 10 years ago. She's leaving it to one of our grand daughters.
