America’s work horse shotgun since 1963. Wikipedia says this is the best selling auto-loading shotgun in U.S. history, with over 4 million produced. My dad bought this 1100 skeet gun in the mid 1970’s. It is an excellent dove gun and not a bad specimen at 40 years old!
Tex approves of the 1100!

Excellent photos. 1100 looks almost new. Has it been re-blued? Lots on memories tied up in the shotguns of our fathers.
Thanks Jerry, That is the original blue. Lots of closet time for this gun. Since I shoot mostly doubles, maybe it will still look this good in 30 years when my son gets it.
I consider myself a doubles guy also, but every time I borrow my friend’s 1100 my scores go up dramatically (I swear they have an internal targeting system built in) and I start thinking dangerous thoughts.
Maybe it is the weight. Those guns are heavy compared to a nice double game gun. You should repent and stay away from thoughts of soul-less firepower and narrow sighting planes.
Lot’s of memories tied to that gun! I remember you trying to teach me how to shoot trap in Ft. Worth gun club a few years back (quite a few years!). Seems like there may have been a cottonmouth or two in Cuero that met there demise with this particular gun as well! Glad to see you still have both it and the Model 12.
Hey Charles!! Yes, that was some 35+ years ago! All great memories for sure. Give me a call when you get a chance. The number I have for you aint working any more.
