Thanks for the comments. I really like my 11-87. Like I said before, I shoot that thing till it stops functioning before I clean it, but it will shoot twenty boxes or more before it starts to complain. And it will shoot and function with anthing I want to feed it. Like most autos, it seems to eat the recoil so much that it is easy to shoot. At the shooting clubs around my home area. it seems to me that most sporting clays folks use the O/U than the autos. But when I see autos, I do not see too many 11-87s.
