There’s always a bit of bias against the semi … especially with any jam or fail to fire at clays. What suites one person not necessarily the other … a gas semi great for reducing recoil but also the devils love child to another. I know people hate my using one and been shooting with them for many years.
Though I favour the semi I do understand that it’s not as safe as an over under. However many semi are synthetic with great ease of adjusting fit … my scores got smashed with a lovely beretta o/u and gave it a year … went back to semi and finally got scores back up again.
Clays or quarry … better fit, better mount, better shooting… my semi does it and with less recoil (better shoulder too)
