I had a 1300....until my cousin convinced me that he absolutely could not go on without me selling it to him. I still sorta regret doing it, but he's a cousin that I actually like and we shoot often together.
Your comment they they are "slick" is dead on...the Winchester 1300 design uses a interesting bolt design that is very strong but unlocks quickly and easily. My 1300 seemed to almost cycle itself, like it was on ball bearings.
I miss that shotgun...

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.
