The only time I went sheet shooting, I took a $100 Revelation pump shotgun. I got a lot of looks down their noses, but I think I shot pretty well.
I got some funny looks as a youngster hunting quail with my Dads 1897 Winchester (’trenchsweeper’) so I got a Remington 1100. The Winchester shot as well and believe it was lighter.
Now I’ve got a sweet Browning over and under 20.
