I don't shoot it much these days. The lack of changeable chokes rules it out for hunting. And I am not a barbarian so therefor I won't shoot it at sporting clays, trap, or skeet. Those are games for finely engraved double barrel guns, you see. Yes, I have a tweed jacket. No it does not have patches. But if you find one of those, let me know.
However, that old 1100 is still one of my favorite guns. Kayla has since left for college and doesn't hunt much anymore, her new interests centering around boys and golf. But the gun looks good in the cabinet, resting peaceably next to the Sportsman 58 and a Belgium Browning A-5, a story for another time.
