Don't you find the semi-auto feels rather clumsy? I've always found that they are very hard to swing through in a "natural" way. A bit out of balance somehow. Give me an English made side by side any day!

For nostalgia I love side by side. Never did like semi-autos but they don't kick so hard.

Madame Bear, who has a bad shoulder and finds both the weight and recoil of a gun a problem, used a Benelli Montefeltro. Light as a feather, but the spring-cycling of the mechanism absorbs a lot of the felt recoil. Other people have tried it, and most loved it. Very crisp action when fired as well, none of that 'kerthump-tunk' of the gas-blowback guns.

I like my weird clanking noise, thank you very much.

I'm happy with my big, black kerthumper semi-auto as well, but for stroll round in the evening with the young cocker I love my Yildiz .410

Makes me feel like an Edwardian gentleman

I was more concerned about your "big, black kerthumper"

At least it doesn't make a weird clanking noise like Jonnyboy's.

Did you use to be a script writer for the Carry On films or something ?

Now there's a thought.
