Why yes, threejones, the A300 is an excellent choice. Eats anything you shove down it, has the lightest recoil of any 12g you'll ever shoot, and the stock adjustments are prefect for a southpaw. Plus a monkey could be trained to clean it in about 30 seconds. Not bad for an $800 gun.
Haha, good stuff there packrat. Yes, I do highly recommend it... now that I bought the **** thing. Jokes aside, it really has been flawless so far. Granted, I got it the day I started the thread, so it hasn't been around too long. But so far it's killed 12 ducks, 1 goose, a pheasant and 4 grouse. Plus a couple hundred clays. It's been ran at -12 to "down-pour" turned "friggin blizzard". It's all the good stuff from an A400, but with a working mans price tag.
