Semi Autos

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I know a great deal of you use 3 shot semis for pigeons. I am thinking about geting one. I would love some advice and thoughts on the subject. I would mainly be using it on my own and not for pheasents and partage etc.

 

Thanks

hi mate,i have been using 3 shot autos for the last 20 years for pigeon shooting,even when their is 2 of us in the hide all you do is sit on the right hand of your mate so the spent ammo does not get in their way works a treat,even if your mate has a 3 shot .easy to load job done. :lol::lol::lol:

I got a AL391 last year. Best shotgun I've ever bought. Not only am I hitting more birds, but I'm hitting them further out as well. :lol:

 

The only problem is that I can't use it on my local estate for formal shoot days.

For the simple reason people can't tell if its loaded or not. :lol:

I have a Beretta Urika sporter and a Lanber Sporter and they are both excellent,you wont regret buying a Beretta,watch out if you buy one of the old models such as the a301,302 as it could be nearly 18 years old and could have been used for clay bashing and the internal mechanism worn out,the a301 I had when I was 17 was a minter and the choke although internal the threads were on the outside,so you could shoot it without a choke inserted and you had a virtual blunderbuss of a shot spread,which came in handy at some clays.

 

go for a 390 or 391 or urika or even a teknys

i have a lanber semi-auto 28" barrel, can take 3" magnum. found it the easiest gun i ever fired, started out with o/u 's never settled well with the two i had or any i fired. As for the lanber its a dream to use, nice and light for long days rough shooting better gun than many more expensive ones i tried.

What are the Baikals like?

I've found a fabram (beta lux) for £225, a Remi 1100 for £250, a High Standard for £220 and a Franchi 25th Anniversiary Editon for £250.

 

What are your thoughts.

Recently bought a Browning Silver S/A for £365. excellent for in the field and means the SO4 doesn't get thrown around a hedge bottom. The silver has a quick load system, you just feed the carts straight in to the mag and it puts one straight into the chamber. quick and easy!!! is this common with all autos?

As much as I enjoy pigeon shooting I enjoy it more thanks to my beretta AL391 which I got for 550 pounds, they are a joy to use, its really satisfying getting three from three and the gun looks great. I have a AYA side by side that I use for pheasants but as much as I like it when it comes to pigeons its not the best and i always enjoy revealing my auto from its gunslip at the start of a days decoying, pity at the moment I can't seem to find many places to use it.

I've allways fancied a Remington 1100, but people on here don't seem tp rate them.

 

John Moses (Browning) was the father of Automatic weapons, from what I remember.

He first offered his system to Winchester, but they turned their nose up at it.

 

I don't think I could bring myself to buy a Berretta after being told that the firm belongs to Colonel Gadaffi.
