Rarely use a shotgun any longer, but when I do I grab my old Rem. 1100 in 16 ga. Daddy gave me the choice of a Win., Browning, or the 1100. The local hardware store owner let me try out all 3. I didn't think I could get use to the raised receiver on the Browning and the Winchester I didn't like the feel of, so I went with the 1100. From a value standpoint, the Browning would have been a better investment but I've never regretted the Remington. But now I wish I had both of them...lol!
