Actually, its more like black & blue. Shot a 3 gun match today and I think I was the only pump shotgun (Rem870) there. The rest were Benellis and one Rem 1100. Now I didn't feel outgunned and I kept up with the rest, but slugs were rough on the shoulder. I don't consider myself a wimp, but it will take a week for my shoulder to look normal. I'd love a Benelli, but my budget makes it tough. The Remington 1100 Express looks pretty good, but I'm interested in anyone elses experience with an 1100 and a short barrel. Specifically, I'd probably shorten it to 18-20". Shoot regular field load birdshot up to slugs. Are they reliable?
