I hear you .
But I have had problems with the 1100 and the 1187(The 3.5 version) tuning them for all
the loads that a waterfowler has to use.
The 1187 can be adjusted to shoot eather 3 or 3.5 but not both well with the same setting.
I used a 1100 for trap for years and it was great and a friend used one in 2 3/4 ''
but carried a 10 gauge for geese.
I also remember the great old A5 but it was temperamental at best.
I just like having one shotgun that if I want to I can hunt doves,quail,ducks,geese,turkey and larger game like varmints and even hogs without having to change rings,springs and other
parts just to change shells.
There are other brands of shotguns that I like better. But It is the best shotgun I have ever owned for all round shot gunning.
Under the most severe service it just keeps on working. And no I don't own Beretta stock. Ha, Ha.
