what is your favorite autoloader...
 
for me, it's my first generation Remington 1100 with both a 28" Mod field barrel and a 26" Skeet barrel. The most popular autoloader ever since its debut back in 1963...

For me the 1100 points very naturally. I almost can't miss with one. The upgraded 11-87 is a better gun with the same pointing characteristics.

the 11-87 is only a better gun if you plan to shoot varied loads. It has a compensating system as I'm sure you know. Either way, the Remington autoloaders are soft-soft shooters... :)

1100. No contest at all. I have had about nine 1100s and 11-87s, and still have my first one, bought new in 1963. I sold the Skeet barrel after I got a Light Contour with choke tubes. I also still have a '66 Magnum model for mu waterfowl gun, '77 LT-20 Magnum, and a '70 28 gauge. I still miss the Skeet barrel I sold, so I didn't sell the 20 gauge version.
An awful lot of shotguns have come and gone in the intervening 48 years, but I have yet to run across anything I like as well, in spite of all the newer and more improveder, etc., ad infinitum claims. They work, and they feel great doing it, to me.

I love my 1100 28 gauge, but my all-time favorite auto is my Baretta AL391 Teknys Gold Target. It does everything with great finesse and is just a beautiful gun.

Without a doubt mine is my Remington Sportsman 58 16 gauge. I'm not sure when it dates back to, but I know it's a beauty.

Benelli, Super Black Eagle II 12 ga and Montefeltro 20 ga.

My first shotgun was an 1100, it was stolen. The replaceent was another 1100 with beautiful wood grain. Alas it was stolen also.

Too bad my father never invested in a safe. I learned from that mistake.

Mine is an old Mohawk 48. It may kick like a mule and rely on an obsolete action, but it has yet to let me down. I will admit i shot some clays with my fathers friends Beretta, and that was a smooth gun :D
